Former Jets player ‘laughs’ at Jamal Adams wanting to retire with Seahawks

Former Jets player ‘laughs’ at Jamal Adams wanting to retire with Seahawks

first_imgJets general manager Joe Douglas had previously expressed a wish to make Adams “a Jet for life,” with the defensive back saying at the time, “I want to be a Jet for life too.”MORE: Giving grades to Jets, Seahawks after Jamal Adams dealHowever, the relationship between Adams and the Jets deteriorated in recent months after the 24-year-old became angry at hearing his name in trade rumors last season. Adams’ frustration at not getting a new contract led to him requesting a trade last month, and he then took public shots at both head coach Adam Gase and Douglas shortly before the trade went down.The Seahawks have inherited the final two years of Adams’ rookie contract but his wish to become the highest-paid safety in the league has not gone away.MORE: Adam Gase on Adams trade: ‘He didn’t want to be here'”The plan is to retire here,” Adams told reporters Thursday. “This is my plan. But obviously, those things handle themselves. When all you have to do is just go on the field and perform, do the right things on and off the field, and those things will take care of itself, man. So I’m very excited to be here. I know the rest of the guys are excited to have me, and the coaching staff, and everybody else. So again, man, we’ll worry about that when the time comes.”After Adams’ comments were shared online, former Jets center Nick Mangold posted a reaction GIF. Mangold tweeted a photo of Kevin Malone from “The Office” laughing, an apparent mocking of Adams’ comments.  https://t.co/jxPiz37xdV pic.twitter.com/dNo1P6LzGj— Nick Mangold (@nickmangold) July 31, 2020Mangold retired from the NFL a season before Adams arrived.Given the Jets had Adams had under contract through 2021, it seemed he had little leverage to try and force his way out of New York. But the two first-round picks ultimately swayed Douglas and left Adams elated that he had a fresh start elsewhere for his fourth season in the league.”When I got the call, honestly, I broke down in tears of joy,” Adams added. “A lot of mixed emotions. I’m gonna miss a lot of the guys over there. But at the end of the day, man, this was my calling. This was where I need to be.”To the Seahawks Org & Fans:You have a man on a mission, a man all in on winning a Super Bowl, being the best leader & teammate he can be, & a man who will give everything he has to the city of Seattle and to the 12s all across the world. Thank you for believing in me!#Prez pic.twitter.com/3kQzatip2r— Jamal Adams (@Prez) July 25, 2020 Jamal Adams says his “plan is to retire” with the Seahawks after being traded by the Jets.The All-Pro safety was traded last week to the NFC West franchise by the Jets, who landed two first-round draft picks, a 2021 third-rounder and Bradley McDougald in exchange for Adams and a fourth-round selection in 2022.last_img read more
