At the time of this writing, it is true that Jamal Adams is a safety in the National Football League and plays his professional football for the New York Jets. What is also true, though, is that Jamal Adams seems to want out of the Big Apple and has his eyes set on a couple of teams. There are reportedly up to eight non-Jets teams that Adams would like to play for, but he would have to be traded away from the Jets in order for that to become a reality.
Since his only way out of the Jets organization is a trade, it is obviously something that he does not have total and complete control over. This is not the case for Adams’ activity on social media which has taken on a life of its own over the last week.
Jamal Adams said in a social media video that he is trying to get to Dallas
Whether you are on Instagram or not, it is likely that you saw what Jamal Adams did there over the weekend. The All-Pro safety threw some “likes” onto posts that featured him in various non-Jets jerseys, and he happened to like multiple examples of him wearing the silver and blue.
What’s more is that on Sunday evening a video of Adams surfaced online and in it he can be seen driving. Somebody shouts at him and asks if he’s going to “come to Dallas” to which he responds that he is trying.
What does this video mean, exactly? The ultimate answer is nothing because, as previously mentioned, the New York Jets have a large say in wherever Jamal Adams is going to play professional football.
It makes sense for the Jets to trade Adams to the Cowboys if they follow conventional thoughts on these matters. Typically when a player is traded from one conference to the other it makes sense for the team sending him away to put him on a squad that they will not have to face for some time. The NFL’s schedule-making process is going to look different when they expand to a 17-game regular season next year, but as the two East divisions just played each other in 2019, the Cowboys and Jets won’t meet again until 2023 barring a Super Bowl matchup.
There are plenty of Cowboys fans who refuse to buy in to the Jamal Adams hype as they were previously burned by the constant rumors that connected safety Earl Thomas to the franchise. It cannot be denied that this situation feels very similar, what is yet to be seen is whether the results will be as well.
