First signs of a potential holdout
Title: Re: Jamal Adams traded to Seahawks
Post by: Libero_2 on April 17, 2020, 07:58:37 AM
We have him under control for 3 years with the tag. 

His deal is a priority, but never was going to be top priority until after the draft.

JD has also positioned us nicely to be able to frontload the shot out of a new deal for him IF the draft goes the way we want it to. If we get an interior OL we can put Winters our to pasture along with potentially Avery Williamson freeing up nearly $13 million in space which we could promptly hand directly to Adams in year 1 of a reworked deal.

I think JE said it, they have to get through the draft to see what they have and where.  If they have a lot of cap space after the draft/cuts/further free agents they could easily swoop in with a monster deal in very little time.  Or if cash isn't plentiful they could backload a deal or put it off another year.

I believe at Fansided, you get paid based on page views, like $1 per 1,000 page views.

So you guys sharing these links of terrible articles are getting these guys paid a few extra pennies.

I used to write for Bleacher Report for free, back when anyone could sign up and start writing for them.

Let's be real, while I laugh at the idea of skipping a virtual voluntary workout, the fact that this news was leaked - and now Peter King has his article, too - could mean there is some smoke to this.

Let's hope we can either find a way to pay him, or we win some games this season so he wants to stay.
Title: Re: Jamal Adams traded to Seahawks
Post by: Pope on April 20, 2020, 06:52:09 PM
Voluntary or not if Jamal wants to be known as the leader of this team or at least the defense he has to attend these sessions. I understand he wants a deal but we have him under control for 2/3 years.

For me where there is smoke there is usually fire. Heís been vocal about trades and disrespect from the front office for a little while now, I fear these issues will start to accumulate even further
Title: Re: Jamal Adams traded to Seahawks
Post by: SixFeetDeep on April 20, 2020, 11:00:54 PM
The “smoke” and “rumors” go away if you pay him. He deserves to be paid. Eddie Jackson got selected the same draft as him. McCaffery went 2 picks after him and just got a contract as the highest paid at his position.

Why the freak are we worrying about squeezing out an extra year of control for one of the only players worth giving a damn about for this franchise?

As expected, the Jets exercised Jamal Adams' fifth-year option, GM Joe Douglas said on The Michael Kay Show (ESPN NY 98.7). "Of course we were going to do that — and excited to do it," he said. The option extends Adams' rookie contract to 2021. His salary in ‘21 will be $9.9M. It's guaranteed for injury only; it becomes fully guaranteed next March. Next step: Work on an extension. Douglas: "We will at some point get together with his (agents) once we tie up everything on our end from the draft."

Could be that Joe Douglas wants to set a precedent with the team regarding early contract talks. Everyone wants Jamal here but the team still has two-three more years of control. He was the 6th overall pick, not a UDFA, heíll be fine.

Iíd also like to point out that Douglas mentioned a couple weeks ago that at some point THIS OFFSEASON he would sit down with Jamals agents. Guess what itís still this offseason, itís only been a few weeks since the draft and the entire country is in turmoil.

The only leverage Jamal has is to be a complete asshat distraction to the point the Jets just bail.  He likes football too much to risk sitting out.  I can't blame him and his agent for trying to push all the buttons they can, but Big Doug knows he has a Royal Flush in this game.

Rapoport didn't rule out the Cowboys making a run at Adams in the summer, after the July 15 deadline to extend Prescott. Of course, the Jets might extend their 24-year-old star DB before then. Rapoport noted reports of an impasse between the two sides are inaccurate. A route to renegotiation still exists.

"They just haven't really gotten anywhere yet," Rapoport said.

Mal is 100% worse. Revis was a pain in the derriere mostly because we were a championship caliber team at the time and obviously needed him coming off of the incredible 2009 year. Mal is valuable but not as much as Revis 2009, and the team is way worse, yet Mal is the one who is way more vocally complaining.

Darrelle Revis was also the clearcut best player at his position and corner is way more valuable than safety.

He's on his way to a $10M fifth year option. 

Bad teams overspend on players.  I want to keep him here forever because he's an awesome player, but not at an absurd cost.  That money can be used to help Sam Darnold right now.

I understand why he won't get paid this year now matter how much he bitches.  It's the uncertainty of the cap # next year with Covid.  Same reason why there are so many talented vets still available.  No team wants to pony up money with so much uncertainty. 

I wouldn't bitch like he is, but I'm not him.  Now if what he says is true and they promised him a proposal in January, then that's on the team.  They shouldn't have promised him any offer if they aren't going to sign him anyway.  Joe D will just let this fizzle out and deal with it next year.  Who knows if it's true anyway, Jamal knows the Jets aren't going to get in a pissing match online so he can say whatever he wants.

His dad played in the league, so he probably knows how the league works, but that also could mean he knows that this is a business and to get your money when you can. That's what Sean Gilbert taught Revis. Maybe if Instagram were around then, Revis would have been more angry online, too. He seemed to just let Geiger do his talking for him IIRC.

I just really hope the Jets don't screw this up. It's hard to know what side to be angry at. It's not a good look for Jamal to be whining on social media. It's not a good look for Joe Douglas if he's having issues with the team's best player.

The Jets have leverage in that they control Jamal's rights for a reasonable salary, but if Jamal wants to hold out and make this a big issue, he has leverage that way.

Cowboys first and Lamb for Adams

Yay or nay
Man. I always said I wanted two 1st-round picks at the minimum if we traded Adams.

I've never said yes to a trade, but I have a bad feeling where this is going, so I'll give a tentative Yay.

Cowboys would not do it though.

I'm generally in favor of players doing whatever they need to do to get paid while they can.  Using the fist emoji and #staywoke in service of getting a multi-million dollar extension a year early seems remarkably tone deaf, however.  Tacky at best.

Easiest way to make this go away is for Joe Douglas to give him his second contract. He's far and away the best player we've had at that position in a long time.

Jamal has been a bitch on twitter/social media for most of his time here. That's certainly not going to change (even if he does get his new deal).

Adams is a big time star in the league, and a stellar locker room guy. I don't give a freak about his 'twitter game.' We need to pay the guy, and it's basically that simple. If his demands are sane he needs to be a Jet. If he wants to reset the market at S by 20% or something, that is a very different thing that needs to be discussed/handled. But until we hear that is his demands, I expect Douglas to pay him. It might not be as quickly as Adams wants, but I fully expect it will happen.

Not to steal dcm's thunder, but the cap number this year isn't what anyone cares about. Teams are very concerned that it will drop a ton next year because of decreased revenue from COVID.  The salary cap is based on expected revenue.  Teams stuck with big contracts that spent down to the cap limit this year will be fucked next year if that happens.  Teams that left a little space this year to roll over to next year will still be fucked, but not royally.  I think the Jets would be smart to wait until next year with the downside of having to overpay more for him then along with more cap certainty.  It isn't about being cheap.

Really? Why? They're potentially going to lose two sources of revenue, neither of which is irrelevant, but neither of which is game changing:

- Game day revenue (tickets and concessions)
- Other stadium activity (primarily concerts)

Broadcast revenue will be unaffected - if fans can't go to games then even more of them will be watching on TV, so broadcasters aren't pulling out of the contracts. Merchandising might be slightly impacted by the high street retail shutdown but my guess is that the majority of merchandising sales are done online already anyway.

I'm not hugely sympathetic to the idea of any NFL teams crying poor. I think there will be fans in the stadiums by September anyway.

I don't think next year's cap has a ton to do with the Jamal contract situation, especially since we haven't done anything prior to covid being a big deal anyway.

The reality is we have Jamal under team control for 3 years, and there's little reason to give him a contract. This team literally has 100% of the leverage and Jamal almost certainly wants an eye popping contract.

The NFL would lose $5.5 billion of stadium revenue (the sum of tickets, concessions, sponsors, parking and team stores)óor 38% of its total revenueóbased on figures for the 2018 season

This is if the whole season is played without fans.  Hopefully that doesn't happen but it is very much possible. Obviously there is a lot up in the air (no pun intended).  The point here is that teams can't afford to bank on fans being in the stadiums all year.  You have to have a plan for worse than expected scenarios.  Losing potentially 1/3 of team revenue league-wide is very significant.  I do think the league would allow some grace with the cap because there would be some teams that would be fucked if it went down in that proportion.  But it would certainly go down and teams would be smart to prepare.

It's three months away. Three months ago no one was in lockdown, three months is a very long time. You can project your fears of the apocalypse into the distant future all you like but the fact is that everything right now is opening up again (granted some in a more ill advised fashion than others) and they're not locking down again. You've already seen what happened a short while into the first one, people will simply refuse to do a second one. People are simply prepared to take the risk and if it kills some people that aren't them, so be it - welcome to the me first society that we have built and perpetuated.

Anyway, that's not the point. Even in some hypothetical scenario in which everyone agrees to stay home and watch football on the TV, my point is that I don't believe the loss of gameday revenue will impact NFL teams especially.

While in sure this data is true. How much will viewership increase? Sure there's an unknown of the impact of a highly polifitical nfl putting off some viewers depending on which direction excrement goes the next few months and an election making everything drastically more polarizing and contentious. But at the same time people will be bored out of their freaking minds and there will have been a tremendous ongoing sport hiatus. Plus a ton of TV shows are getting postponed or delayed for their fall lineups, so TV competition could be the weakest ever.

Not to mention there's surely an extremely high probability that college football gets canceled. And if that's the case not only has the nfl explored the possibility of having games all weekend long, but viewership should be at record levels.

If there's no NBA MLB hockey or whatever the freak else even more people could get shuttled towards NFL.

I'm not saying it's very likely to happen, but I don't think it's completely unreasonable that the nfl could actually have all time record high revenues. Especially if the competition falters as much as it could

Increase in viewership does not equate to an increase in advertising revenue.  Not on television anyway.

They could make more money from gamepads though, but I'm sure that's a very small portion of their revenue.

He’s the best player in the league at his position and he makes a noticeable difference on the field. If you give me an actual player he will cost us I’ll listen. Until then I really don’t feel like dealing in hypotheticals. The world as it is is vexing enough.

If the Jets told him they were going to send him a contract offer or negotiate with him and are now ghosting him, he has a right to be pissed.

Here’s the argument that I’d be willing to entertain. The problems that Jamal has had with this team:

-JD: We’re not going to trade you, Jamal.
-Cowboys: We want Jamal Adams.
-JD: How much?

-Jamal: I want a new contract.
-JD: We’ll talk about it.
-Jamal: When?
-JD: *crickets*

Back to my original point:

Who gives a flying freak about how Jamal expresses his displeasure with the team over his contract?

He hasn’t demanded to be traded. He hasn’t said he’ll sit out training camp or the season. He said he won’t do skype workouts. Holy. excrement. The. Worst.

Why should I, as a fan, care about what he posts on IG regarding his contract?

Why am I willingly going to pay more for him when I dont need to?

Because otherwise, he will likely hold out. And because in theory, this would be a great time to sign Jamal because we might not have to pay quite as much as we would in a year or two. If he wants to talk extension, fine, we have the leverage at this point.

If we can't get a contract done because Jamal and his representatives don't recognize that, then that's fine, we'll wait. We don't know what negotiations have gone on, if any. All we heard was JD say that he'll talk to Jamal sometime after the draft, and now we've heard Jamal say that hasn't happened yet.

Quote
Why wouldn't I spend that money on positions I need?

Sure, why pay the best safety in the NFL when we can sign Demaryius Thomas because we need a WR? I would argue that the biggest position of need for the Jets are IMPACT players. Jamal is an impact player.

Contracts don't mean excrement. You know that. The players know that. The owners know that. freak a precedent - that's just common knowledge. Players can get cut at any time for not performing to their contract. So I can't argue with Jamal for wanting more money for obviously exceeding his contract.

There is a difference between saying you want a new contract and complaining about it every other week.

Its freaking June.
We're entering a recession
Our country is in turmoil
The season may not even happen
Next years salary cap will likely decrease for the first time in 15 years

It's just completely tone deaf to consistently be complaining about his contract to the public right now and it shows where his priorities are.

It's the same thing as people at my company asking for bonuses and raises while most companies are firing and furloughing people.  People on town halls asking if we can expense meals after the CEO tells the company they're doing everything in their power to not have to fire a single employee.

If myles garrett gets a new contract I'll eat my hat, but no one is getting a huge contract extension right now given the climate of everything that is going on, especially someone under contract.

I have no interest in trading jamal, but if hes doing this now he will do it again 2 years after he signs his contract.  And you best believe he wants to be played like a top 10 defensive player in the league 16m+ a year

As much as Adams is being a bit bitchy with all this, he is talented enough to look past it and ignore it. In the end as long as he pisses and moans on social media and ultimately shows up to play, I don't think I'd take it too personally if I were the front office.

Cimini confirmed too.  Unless there's a bidding war, it'll hurt our trade value because they know we aren't keeping him.  I really don't see anything the Jets did that was wrong here.

He'll have some control over where he goes because no team would sign him without assurances he would accept a new deal.  Otherwise, send him to the Skins. They suck and hed have to play his beloved Cowboys twice a year.  Lol.

Hopefully everyone settles down and gets it together, but it isn't looking good.

Not sure anyone looks good in this, but if he's telling the truth about being told he was going to get an offer in January and then the Jets failing to make one, that's a pretty sloppy move on the team's part. Wasn't there a rumour a little while back that the Jets were cash strapped? (Not sure how that happens to one of the league's most valuable franchises, but still.) If it's true that we failed to deliver on a promised offer, then either Douglas has dropped the ball or the team has pulled the rug out from underneath him.

I think it's a combination of things.

- I think the Jets are being cheap and don't want to shell out a big contract right now.
- I think Joe Douglas got off on the wrong foot with Jamal Adams and has not communicated well with him.
- I think Jamal Adams wants to get paid immediately, and if the Jets are going to be a losing team that isn't willing to pay him, then he wants to get out of here.

Like Bo said, we don't know what's going on behind the scenes. But that seems like the logical scenario to me.

I agree, that's really the only possible thing the Jets did wrong, if that is even true.  Not sure why people can't just talk to each other.  "Hey, you promised me an offer in January, why haven't I heard from you yet?".  Instead we have silence and Instagram diarrhea.  Who knows.  I guess he's just at a point where he'd rather play somewhere else unless he gets offered a truckload of cash by the Jets.  That's fine.

I think Jamal feels that, as the team's best player and emotional leader, he deserves to be compensated for having suffered through this team's ineptitude for the last three seasons. Unfortunately, the real world and business doesn't work that way. He's under contract for at least two more seasons so the team has no incentive to rush his deal or to give in to his unreasonable demands.

I genuinely believe this wouldn't be happening if the team hadn't been a dumpster fire for his first three seasons in the league. That combined with apparently poor communication on the part of the front office and dangling him at last year's trading deadline has inflamed this situation considerably.

If he winds up playing for a new contract on a new team, something we have all agreed is a real possibility and a few are actively rooting for at this point, it apparently does work like that.

It hinges primarily around two things: his dislike and fear of someone who is more listened to and respected than him in the locker room, and the need to add more offensive players to cover up his inability to build a competent offense without elite players figuring it out for him on the field.

The Baltimore Ravens made the postseason once in the 5 years following Ed Reed's departure.

It's also important to look at this from a purely economic standpoint. If we were to give in to Adams' demands to become the highest paid player on the team, our three highest paid players would be a safety, an inside linebacker, and a running back. What successful team has been built that way? Sure, we may be able to get out of Bell's contract in a year but that still doesn't make a lot of sense from a resource allocation standpoint.

I have a theory (and this isn't me taking the pee now) that any team is built around the spine, and that with a good spine you can live with mediocre elsewhere but with a mediocre spine good elsewhere won't help. So that means you build around the following positions:

- C
- QB
- RB

- DT
- MLB/ILB
- S (arguably)

What's interesting is that the NFL pays big money to a lot of outside positions - WR, OT, EDGE - but how many times do we see big talent, big money players in those positions fail to win anything despite getting paid? It's because the spine of the team wasn't good enough.

The formula for success in the NFL isn't that complicated. You need a quarterback (obviously), you need to protect that quarterback, and you need to get to the other quarterback. Beyond that you want players that are around the ball constantly. Edge rushers are in the backfield more often than ILBs and corners are around the ball more frequently than safeties. You don't want mediocrity anywhere on the field but if I had to choose between strength at wide receiver, corner, and edge rusher and running back, safety, and linebacker, that choice is easy.

Just because positions literally play in the middle of the field does not make them the "spine."

Except that on both sides of the ball, if you dominate the center of the field then you have a much easier job with the rest of the game because you're making the contested area significantly smaller.

The formula for success in the NFL isn't that complicated. You need a quarterback (obviously), you need to protect that quarterback, and you need to get to the other quarterback. Beyond that you want players that are around the ball constantly. Edge rushers are in the backfield more often than ILBs and corners are around the ball more frequently than safeties. You don't want mediocrity anywhere on the field but if I had to choose between strength at wide receiver, corner, and edge rusher and running back, safety, and linebacker, that choice is easy.

You're cherrypicking and ignoring that I also included DT and C (could probably add G in there as well if you wanted to).

Except that on both sides of the ball, if you dominate the center of the field then you have a much easier job with the rest of the game because you're making the contested area significantly smaller.

But it's never been easier to work the middle of the field because of rules put in effect to limit your ability to hit. That's part of the reason why the Patriots have been so dominant for so long because they've dominated that part of the field.

You're better off trying to lock down the sides, get to the quarterback, and force turnovers. Beyond that, it's all about having more possessions, more time, and, ultimately, more points than the opponent.

OK, but if you can force a team to play to the outside by controlling the centre of the field then you have an advantage still.

I can think of weak teams with elite players on the outside. I can't think of elite teams with weak players inside.

Dick Cimini:

The Jamal Adams trade request is the first big test for GM Joe Douglas. Does he trade his best player or hold firm? Know this: Teams already are showing interest. A trade for draft picks does not help the team in 2020. In that case, he should've done it before the draft. If he opts for a trade, the package needs to include a quality player. The Jets shouldn't be in a hurry; they have the leverage. I know this: They're not happy with his behavior.

Meh. As a 32-year old, most of the time I've been a fan, the Jets have had decent coaches. The end of the Rex tenure, the end of the Bowles tenure, and the current Gase tenure have been the most negative I've been about any coaches we've had since 1997.

The biggest constants for the Jets in my life have been:
- Shitty QB play
- Shitty drafting
- And when they actually do draft a good-great-elite player, they either can't find a way to keep him (Abraham, Vilma, Revis, Moss) or that player eventually wears out their welcome (Wilkerson, Richardson, Williams)

Obviously he wants to get paid but it was never clear from his end whether he wanted to actually be paid by us or by someone else. Every other week he would post some hoo-ha boy high school excrement on social media insinuating he wanted out, then he'd come out a week later with a pic of himself working out in Jets gear or some excrement like him wanting out was all horseshit and he wants to be a Jet.

Now that he's finally said he wanted out the picture is a lot clearer then before the draft, which was the freaking time for this moron to step up and say he'd like to be traded. Instead of just coming out and saying he wanted out, he waited, and now both parties are fucked. Him more so then the organization, but still his timing was terrible. There's no way Douglas fucks the coaching staff over by trading him for assets they can't utilize till next off season.

What i want to see is the Jets FO to sit on this and not let a player bully them into submission.  Adams is an elite Safety, but he's out of line here. Especially since he's willing to forego a contract extension with the team he's willing to be traded to....that's freaking horseshit.

I'll dismiss what he was told in January, because i'm sure the Jets didn't bank on a pandemic happening in the spring.  As far as what he was told right after the draft, we're less than 2 months from the draft date.  Did Jamal expect a contract offer the day after the draft?

I think he needs to calm his funbags, and focus on preparing for the season.

I would have a completely different opinion and would sympathize with him more if he was entering his contract year.....but he's not.  He needs to STFU and be the leader he keeps telling everyone that he is.  He's going to get paid eventually (even if he does get injured), the guy is top 3 at his position. 

Also, asking for a trade and then telling potential teams that you're willing to wait on a contract extension is the biggest POS move i've seen from a player in a long time.

Jamal is being impatient because he has 2 years left on his deal. And then the tag. His first 3 years as a Jet he had a front row seat to the Mike Maccagnan and Adam Gase fiasco. Would you want to spend your prime years as a top safety, getting paid well under market value, playing for an organization that has shown that kind of dysfunction?

Sure....but telling potential teams that you're willing to play without a contract extension wipes out any sympathy whatsoever.  Jamal can eat a excrement sandwich for all i care now.

i think that part of it may have more to do with our losing and dysfunction since he's been here as opposed to any contract he wants. there are probably a couple of fronts that jamal is mad with RE the team, one being the constant losing and the other being the poor movement/communication over a contract despite Jet claims that it would be addressed.

as has been mentioned, he'd probably feel okay with an L on one of those fronts but not both. a winning team with him playing under his rookie contract, or a losing excrement organization but still getting paid. i'm not defending him but it's probably hard for somebody who's been as good and as competitive as he's been at his craft his entire life to endure swallowing both.

Jamal is being impatient because he has 2 years left on his deal. And then the tag. His first 3 years as a Jet he had a front row seat to the Mike Maccagnan and Adam Gase fiasco. Would you want to spend your prime years as a top safety, getting paid well under market value, playing for an organization that has shown that kind of dysfunction? Weíve gone more backwards than forward since he was drafted.

I donít think weíre in this situation if the Jets were winning

Dudes young enoguh that he could easily play another 10 years, capable of being a top 5 safety for the next 6 to 8.

And I'd imagine because of the cap implications of covid19 it his options are probably to either get a deal now or try to wait two years for the cap situation from a potentially verydown year to work itself out.

I think he's just freaking delusional and obscenely overvalues what he brings to the team

The guy is two years outside of free agency (or being tagged) and wants a market defining contract. If Jeremy Fowler is correct, he's looking for over 20 million a year.

You can't bitch about money, and then turn around and tell potential teams that you're willing to play under the contract you're currently bitching about.

If he's really asking to be the highest paid player on the team, it has to be a slap in the face to someone like CJ Mosley (who is the highest paid VETERAN on the team).

Finish out your deal and then ask for the money.

I'll dismiss what he was told in January, because i'm sure the Jets didn't bank on a pandemic happening in the spring.

Also what the hell did he think was going to happen in January?  That's the beginning of the playoffs

As far as what he was told right after the draft, we're less than 2 months from the draft date.  Did Jamal expect a contract offer the day after the draft? 

This.  Either he is an idiot or he isn't negotiating in good faith.  Dak & the cowboys have been doing this for over a year, and you don't hear this from his camp.  Sprinkle Covid on top of this and its just pure idiotic.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

To plays devils advocate, how would you feel if Joe Douglas gave Joe $5MM to Jamal this year to reward him for his play?  I don't think you can do that now that Jamal has had a excrement show, but what do you think about this as a precedent?

On one hand he clearly outplayed his contract and as a sign of good faith for the future you're giving him some more money.
On the other hand it sort of deems contracts as meaningless and could indicate that all players are worthy of unexpected bonuses.

Jeremy Fowler, ESPN- Jamal Adamsí future contract demands loom large in trade talks. If he wants pay among top defensive players - which one source whose team has looked into Adams believes - thatís well above $20M per year, while safety market is below $15M.  Tough for a SS, no matter how good.

I'm pretty sure only one player from the first round of 2017 has received a contract extension and he was a borderline league MVP.  Mahomes was a league MVP and hasn't been extended.  TJ Watt (1.30) has outperformed his rookie deal by a substantially greater margin than Jamal Adams has; he hasn't been extended.

I didn’t mean that they Jets haven’t held up their end by resigning him, they haven’t held up their end of the bargain by moving in the direction of competency.  How is Jamal supposed to “lead” the front office? He did more than any player I’ve ever seen here in terms of trying to recruit talent. How is Jamal supposed to “lead” the offense or develop a QB?

The only way the Jets could trade him to another excrement team is with the knowledge that it's on his current rookie deal, which would likely net us much less compensation. 

If a team wants to trade for him and sign him to a new, big deal, Jamal would have to be willing to sign with that team.  For example, if he says "I'm not signing any deal with the Bengals", the Bengals wouldn't trade for him.  So, if we are going to trade him to a team where he signs a new contract, he can control where he doesn't want to go.

If we are willing to accept less compensation, send him to the Redskins or the Lions.

This is nonsense I don't believe. He's got 3 years left of team control for an extremely affordable price.

If we traded him to the least desirable team in the league do you think he's going to refuse a new contract for 3 years and play for dick?

If he plays good and the Jets become competitive people will start blowing him again.

I think the bidding has to start at two firsts, simply because there's so much uncertainty about the draft situation next year (how covid affects standings, what happens when there's no college football etc)

If the team waits until next offseason you can ask for a lesser price once you know where things lie. But for now, you either get a package with players or get a team to overpay

Based on what, exactly? Signing a bunch of second tier FAs and drafting some players who we hope will be good when they see an NFL field?

This is the first test of his career as a GM and he's hardly acing it so far. Adams is a poorly advised kid with a mouth as big as his talent, but it is the job of the GM to manage people like that and keep the franchise moving in the right direction. Douglas is not doing that so far.

Douglas will be fine.  And he's dealing with uncertainty due to the pandemic.

Plus, he's only been here 1 year.  You're not going to change the culture that fast, especially when you have a turd like Gase as your HC.

I expect him to communicate with Adams and keep a lid on this kind of thing. I expect players not to be saying that they were promised a contract offer in January and then after the draft and now we're in June and it still hasn't materialised.

I'm not arguing that Adams isn't also at fault here - my specific words were "Adams is a poorly advised kid with a mouth as big as his talent" - but it's literally Douglas's job to not let things like this happen and spiral out of control as it appears to be.

To be fair to JD Jamal Adams is freaking insane. Let's just say that JD did say he was going to talk an extension with Adams. Adams is purportedly asking for 20 million a year. There's no freaking negotiating with that. The man's absolutely bat excrement insane, I don't see anything that Joe Douglas can do at this point. You either keep him, trade him, or drastically overpay him.

And I think its fairly difficult to trade him until after this season, and I'd be chipping in for a plane to fly around the stadium saying fire Joe Douglas if he pays him anything close to 20 million a year.

I don't have any idea how you deal with this. Outside of due your homework on trade interest. And see if Jamal changes his tune.

even if lawrence wasn't a possibility for them, i don't see jacksonville giving up ngakoue AND a first on top for adams. pass rush is a more premium position than safety is, and they probably valuate ngakoue himself close to 2 firsts.

in any deal i think the biggest thing we have going for us RE adams is the fact that he still has several years left on his rookie deal. him stating that any trade would not even be contingent on signing a fat extension actually helps us. he is guaranteed a team two more cost controlled years for one of the best young safeties in the game

i'd do it for ngakoue and a 2nd/3rd, but we are a long ways away from this, and who knows if the situation will still be like this at that time. this thing is going to drag out and if we are to trade him, it'll be sometime later in the summer a la the Khalil Mack situation

You manage people by communicating with them, understanding what they want, working with them to build a plan to deliver both what they want and what you want. If you can't give them what they want, you explain why you can't. You continue communicating with them.

It is possible that he has done all of these things and Adams is lying. It certainly seems the case that he's very emotional and poorly advised. But we have absolutely no evidence that Douglas is handling this as well as he could or should be; we just don't know. I think it's entirely possible that the team has mishandled this, and if that is the case then Douglas is the face of it. Maybe he was handling it perfectly and then the team pulled the rug out from underneath him, which is also possible, but it's still conjecture. That's why I have a problem with the "Douglas good, Adams bad" attitude.

Douglas has been pretty solid in his first year.

And heís not required to deal directly with the players, thatís what agents are for. Kinda funny that Adamsí agent hasnít come out with any comment on this so far.

I don't really see how any trade makes sense, because next year's draft is going to be a mess. Are we even going to have a college season? If not, does that mean that players all get an extra year of eligibility? What about players who have redshirted their first year, then played last season, and now declare? How can you judge a player with one season under their belt from over a year ago?

If I'm the Jets I am refusing to even enter trade conversations with anyone unless they're starting with a ludicrous offer including a quality player in their prime with a good contract, because draft picks are worth less this coming year than they ever have been. If Jamal is really going to be hardheaded about it he can sit the season out and we'll just kick his contract down the road.

EDIT:  Send him to Detroit for Kenny Golladay, 1st and a 4th (that can escalate to a 3rd)

Detroit is the exact team we should target. Patricia and that Front Office are about to be excrement canned if they donít win right now. So lost draft capital is a hurdle they either cross later (if they win) or itís somebody elseís problem. Patricia is also a defensive minded coach, meaning he is more likely to over value a defensive star.

That said they wonít give us any offensive talent. It would be a straight picks payment. But I could see something like a 2021 1st and a 2022 2 and 4.

It's like with Darnold.  We HOPE they are the answers. Both have showed some signs. But the grade for both is incomplete.

Burning bridges while he's still on the island.

This is a good way of putting it. If we don't ultimately trade him (which I still think is more likely than not), he's going to have to play the entire season with teammates and coaches he was all too ready to abandon.

That's how this kind of behavior should be rewarded IMO

I don't really care how behavior should be rewarded or not.

I still want to keep him here long-term. If the bridges have been fully burned, trade him for the most value we can get. I don't care if it's Dallas or anyone else. If the offers are essentially identical, then maybe we can screw Jamal by sending him somewhere he wouldn't like, but the Jets should focus on what is best for the Jets.

The way to handle it is to sit down with Jamal and figure out a plan of action for both sides, whatever that may be. He's talking on social media because there is no plan in place, or if there is it hasn't been communicated to him, so he's agitating. Your thinking is binary and unsophisticated and not how a professional executive should be handling things.

It is literally Douglas's job to build the best roster possible and creating a situation in which your best player is behaving like this is poor. This doesn't happen at well run clubs; do you think that that's because no other player is unhappy or egotistical?

There's no one person in the wrong here. Adams is behaving poorly as a result of being stuck with a club that has a losing culture that starts from the ownership and is perpetuated by the head coach, and the front office is failing to get control of it.

Yes. Douglas is in charge. The vast majority of this problem goes beyond Douglas, but Adams felt like he was disrespected at the trade deadline, and he feels like the Jets have misled him this offseason.

If we end up selling low on the best player on the team because the organization failed to communicate the way Adams wanted to be communicated with, well, the Jets screwed up. We don't know how to divide the blame between Douglas, Gase, Johnson and Adams. But nobody with the Jets had done anything to deserve the benefit of the doubt, including Douglas.

It's possible the Jets have handled everything the right way. Gauging Jamal's trade value is certainly defensible. And maybe the Jets have been upfront with Adams from the moment this offseason started, and Adams just wants so much money where it's not even worth discussing. But we don't know how Douglas has dealt with Adams this offseason, and we don't really know how he's dealing with him now.

I like Douglas. But I've seen a lot of coaches and GMs and players come through here that were supposed to be the answer. I'm optimistic Douglas can be the guy, but he hasn't proven a thing yet. People liked Maccagnan, too.

No disagreement from me on that one.

There was a rumour a while back, although it may have been just Manish noise, that the Jets were running cash poor.

His approach to the players kneeling was much more open and reasonable than his Trumpster brother, and many of their peers in the owners' club; he treated the players like adults and was rightly applauded for it. I think it's possible though to separate the man's principles and his ability to run a football team, and judge those things individually.

The pandemic has torched any plans the Jets had, because everything (including the season, the salary cap etc) is up in the air.  I know you don't want to hear that (because of your opinions on this pandemic), but it's the truth.  It's nice that the NFL is saying they're on schedule to play, but i'll believe it when i see it.  In regards to Adams, he needs to read the room a little better, the situation has changed...what he was told in January and around draft time, may have changed over the last 2 months.  The Jets are well within their right to do that.  Remember, Adams isn't in a contract year, and has zero leverage.

Joe Douglas has gone on record saying Adams was gonna be made a Jet for life, obviously not right away most likely because the world isn't a good place healthwise.

The kid has been a warrior for this team, but he should show a little patience...and start acting like the leader he makes himself out to be.

I think that's complete nonsense. Between Adams obscene contract demands and the fact it's extremely rare for a player to get extended thst early. I don't think any good GM would be extending him at this time

If Joe Douglas hasn't communicated with Jamal Adams or his agent since the draft and at least told him they aren't signing him this year or at least explained the change in situation, that is the Jets' fault. Doug may have talked to him and Jamal is bullshitting about no contact regarding a deal, I don't know.  I just don't understand why no one talks to each other unless they have and the media doesn't know.

The Jets are a bit hamstung in the media because they can't just come out and call him out in the media if they are in the right.  That would blow up what little chance there is of fixing this.

Jamal is being an poopchute, but hopefully someone has at least talked to him since the draft.

I hadn't heard this till now, but it's also a Manish thing. Around the 10 minute mark they discuss how Joe Douglas was told before the pandemic that he would be limited on actual cash to spend this offseason. And thst it likely played a huge role in our free agency moves (ie how they were mostly one year contracts, or disguised one year contracts)

I don't think this has anything to do with the Jamal situation to be honest as he just wasn't due. But it's certainly something that makes a lot of sense in regards to the offseason

I don't believe the Johnsons cash strapped Douglas because of being short on cash.  Maybe they did because of the pandemic and uncertainty with the future cap, but I don't know that I believe that either.  You can like or dislike the Johnsons, but they have never been cheap.

On that basis, it seems clear that Manish is actually understating things, that Gase has committed a number of actionable offenses against Jamal, his actions are entirely understandable, and we should immediately fire Gase and give Adams his new contract.

Make a good case for why I'm wrong.

If there is truth to Adams' claim that he will play on his current contract for a different team, then his desire to leave is clearly not just about the money and there's something else at play.

That was the press conference where Manish accused Gase of having a burner twitter account.
To jog your memory it was Manish who had a fake Gase burner twitter account.

So gain, yes Manish is the dickhead here

So Gase's approach to Bell last season was fine and Manish was just being a bitch for how he reported it? Gotcha.

His approach?  Our offensive line stunk.

Bell was fine.  He has almost 200 more carries than any other ball carrier and he has 66 receptions.  The myth that he wasn't used is a god damn joke.  He didn't have a great season but no one in our offense did.

If he can’t figure out how not to let a known media grifter get under his skin without pissing off a key player during a public press conference, he might not be a good fit for an NFL HC in NYC.

Say what you will about Bowles, but he would have handled that 100x better.

Manish started rumors about the team trying to trade him.

I wouldn't be surprised if Manish is pulling this out of his derriere. I also wouldn't be surprised if Gase was at fault.

Manish: "The prevailing sentiment in Gang Green's locker room is clear: Players don't respect Gase, who has rubbed them the wrong way"

Seems pretty clear that Manish is speaking about the locker room, not for it, which is exactly his job. He also doesn't say "all the players", he says "prevailing sentiment". Also, Lewis doesn't say "that's not true, we all love playing for the coach". He's not actually refuting anything Manish has said, just told him to shut up. Can't imagine why a mediocre role player who just managed to get himself a new contract wouldn't want a new coach.

DPOY Odds:

Aaron Donald: 6/1
J.J. Watt: 9/1 (horrible value IMHO)
Nick Bosa: 9/1
Khalil Mack: 10/1
Joey Bosa: 14/1
T.J. Watt: 16/1
Chandler Jones: 16/1
Stephon Gilmore: 20/1
Jadaveon Clowney (also horrible value): 22/1
Myles Garrett: 25/1

I notice they didn't even set a number for a certain safety two years out of free agency who wants a market defining contract in the middle of a league economic climate where the cap might actually contract.

Considering Pauline thinks we're starting the year with Edoga at RT mixed in the fact that he's a general retard on his best day, I find that Collins speculation to be horseshit.

We don't have to agree on 10 guys who will be great.

All we have to know is that the guy we have isn't gonna get it done. If that's true, then we need to try and find a different one. Based on Gase's 4 years as a HC between Miami and NY, many people, myself included believe that he can't be the guy. As long as people believe that about a coach, they will want him gone. Same was true of Bowles, Rex, Mangini etc.

If Gase can't improve the offense and help Sam develop, he needs to be shown the door, sooner rather than later. If we fired him tomorrow I sure as excrement wouldn't be complaining. Williams could run the team in the interim and I don't think many jets fans would be too disappointed.

Before Gase, we've hired rookie HCs all the way back to Parcells.

It's not the head coaches job to deal with a specific side of the ball, it's to make the tough decisions necessary to see the team find success.

Gase has shown (to me and many other board guys) that he isn't up to that task. Williams is NOT the long term answer. But as a guy who has a track record of strong defenses and previous HC experience, he is about as good as you could ask for in the interim.

Good. I agree with Bell. freaking pay the man. You're not setting an unreasonable precedent - he's an elite player, arguably the most standout talent we've had at any position since Revis. Anyone not demonstrating the same level of ability as Jamal can freak off if they try and pull the same stunt, but we should be doing everything necessary to make this guy a Jet for a very long time.

It'll be interesting if there is some movement on the players requesting a spread of the 2020 COVID losses over 10 years.  If that happens and there is all of a sudden some clarity on the cap for next year, you may see the Jets make an offer this year.

Not only does Adams want to get paid while under team control for 3 years, he wants the kind of deal you probably still wouldn't get as an UFA.

Yeah but I don't put up my house for a million if I'm willing to accept 700,000.

The Jets literally hold all the cards. The only way Jamal should get an extension is if it's a very reasonable and team friendly one.

I think the ceiling for any Adams contract should basically be the absolute bare minimum over Eddie Jackson just to satisfy his ego. Especially considering we have Adams under team control for one more year than the bears did Jackson, and safety is one of the few positions we actually have good depth at. And the only way I'm good with that for Adams is if we still get to exercise his 5th year rookie option and basically spread the cap hit over 6 years.

That's literally how you sell houses. And in fact pretty much everything in a non-retail environment. Every business has a list price for its product, and every business is willing to negotiate on that list price. Think of each player as an individual business, with a product to offer (their play).

The Jets literally hold all the cards. The only way Jamal should get an extension is if it's a very reasonable and team friendly one.

Well, they don't. Jamal holds the nuclear option, which is "freak you I'm not playing". It hurts him as much or more as it does the Jets, but it still hurts us plenty.

I agree that Jackson is probably a good negotiation point, that Jamal is worth a bit more, and that we should be spreading the cap hit as best we can. Pretty sure Jamal doesn't care what we do with the cap hit. He wants to get paid and he knows he's good enough to demand it. The headscratcher is that the Jets think an extra year of cheap Jamal is worth fighting for at the likely cost of us having his career.

How many people have you known accept an offer for a house more than 25 to 30% off the listing price?

Sure you take offers less than asking, but if someone's asking price is batshit crazy you put everyone off.

And Jamals demands are freaking insane.

And Jamals freak you I'm not playing hurts him WAY WAY more than the Jets.

He's under team control for 3 years. And he's made relatively paltry earnings in the grand scheme of his career.

Sure he will walk away with a few million, but he'd be leaving probably close to 10 times more than be made on the table.

The Jets on the other hand would hurt losing a player of his calibur, but we already have a potential replacement on the roster.

He can cut off one of the Jets fingers, but the price he would pay would be losing both his legs

Okay, but that doesn't change the fact he still hasn't made much money and he's severely outplayed his contract.

The Jets owe it to him and themselves to listen to what he wants in a contract. The Jets have a ton of leverage, so they don't have to do anything.

But if Jamal is desperate enough, he can play dirty by sitting out or causing internal issues. I don't think he will, which is why the Jets probably won't budge, but if Jamal is so desperate to get paid right now, he can do things to try to make that happen. Demanding a trade to a team that he thinks will pay him is one way to do it. Sitting out is another. Pulling a Jalen Ramsey and faking injuries and being a pain in the derriere is another. I can't blame him for trying to get paid. I don't like the way he's gone about it, but I assume he will play like his normal self this year regardless.

That's the point of the cba, every player follows the same rules. And good rookies will outplay their rookie contracts. Far better dudes haven't gotten new contracts paying them a bajillion dollars either.

Lamar Jackson was literally the MVP and is a QB last year. Sure he got drafted a year after Adams, but you don't see him crying that he deserves to be paid like the most valuable player in the league and that he wants a 10 year contract like Mahomes.

No one knows for sure what Jamal is asking for in a contract and no one one knows for sure what the Jets' stance is on extending him. It's all speculation.

My personal theory is that the front office fully intended on offering Adams a contract extension following the draft but then the pandemic happened forcing the team to revise/delay those plans. Joe Douglas then either communicated this to Adams or didn't (I'm more inclined to believe that he did because I don't think he's incompetent), leading Adams to become upset (believing he was misled) and to throw a tantrum on social media (ultimately requesting a trade to demonstrate just how upset he was). Douglas then spoke to him again to calm him down (as did some of his teammates apparently) and that's why he's been relatively quiet ever since.

i don't think it should be harder given that those 2 players play at more premium and important positions than jamal does, but i still want him to get re-signed

i believe it was JE that said it initially; despite the tantrum he's thrown, it wouldn't set a poor precedent to give jamal his money. our organization unfortunately comes across a player of jamal's calibre once every 10-15 years, and if any other player tries to pull this excrement, it will likely be much easier to cut ties with them than it will be with jamal, given that that player will likely not be as good as jamal

if sam comes good and deserves a payday then we won't be fvckin around with the face of our organization like that anyways RE contractual negotiations, and we don't have a premium pass rusher to worry about paying. we haven't had one of those in 15 years

Because he's under team control for the next 3 years.

I don't know if you remember the last two mega contracts we gave to home grown best players on the team. But both of them worked out incredibly poorly for us.

So there's a very clear and obvious precedent that suggests that there is and can be a great deal of risk in giving out huge contracts. Especially to do so years in advance

The potential downsides of such a contract for Adams are numerous (overpaying, injury risk, him being a malcontent, butt hurt about losing, losing motivation etc)

The potential upsides? It strokes his penis and makes him feel better?

From a football standpoint the only freaking reason you extend Jamal right now is if it's on very favorable terms for the tem.

To give him a huge apology contract for no obvious other reason is just being a bad GM

Yet another disincentive to skip training camp for players would be the leagueís ability to strip players of an accrued season if they fail to show up for training camp on time or if they leave for more than five days. This is a huge difference from the rule currently on the table, which only requires that a player under contract show up within 30 days of the teamís first game.

Did you read the full Daily News article? freak Gase, freak Douglas and freak the Johnsons, in whatever order you like. They're all making a royal freaking mess of this, and unlike Jamal none of them have ever demonstrated any ability to do their job to any level of acceptable competence.

I did. I buy 50% of it. He says a lot of bullshit in general. Heís obviously immature and doesnít know how to handle emotions. Heís not even got to his fourth year. Iím not discharging Douglas and Gase of blame, but Adams is the biggest problem in this situation.

As I have been at pains to say about both Douglas and previous incumbents in the role, it takes time for a GM to be judged. I remember when you were all jerking yourselves raw about Idzik as well.

This was the first significant test of Douglas's tenure, and he is failing it badly. There is absolutely no doubt that Gase and the Johnsons are making it difficult for him, but it's clear that Douglas has played his own role in making things worse.

I disagree.  The first significant test of Douglas's tenure was the draft, and we won't know if he hit that out of the park until we see how the players do on the field.

No, it's not. 

Free Agency and the NFL Draft were his first tests. 

Given we don't yet know how well he did in those, this is the first one upon which we can judge him. He's getting an F.

Heís lost his sources ever since Maccagnan left the building. He hasnít really been right since.

I judge cases in a case to case basis. Our FO has usually sucked but thatís irrelevant with this. On this particular one I donít see how the hell the Jets are guilty of anything. He has 2 more years in his contract FFS. The season hasnít even started. There was a freaking pandemic around. Sorry but it just doesnít hold.

I donít know how anyone in this world can think that this is somehow the Jetsí fault. Weíre months away from the beginning of the season, the guy has two years on his contract and heís been crying and whining in social networks for months now. His attitude is just ridiculous.

Iíve worked in sports for more than 20 years now and only in extremely rare occasions successful teams have leaders that complain to the press about their personal and contract issues thus muddling the ambiance of the teams. The good ones do it surgically and know when and how to get reactions. Of course I also know that usually teams that constantly have excrement coaches win anything, so thereís that, but leaders and captains just act differently. He doesnít. He doesnít give a freak about anyone but himself. Those players are toxic, as good as they can be on the field. In my ideal scenario both Adams and Gase are gone. We get a real coach and real leaders.

It's also not Adam Gase's job to handle contract situations. 

Jamal Adams calls himself a leader and a captain all the time, but when has he acted like one this offseason?  He's acted selfishly since the season ended.

No one has excused Gase or Douglas from this situation, but Adams is more at fault than anyone.

Darrelle Revis is 1000% the player Jamal Adams will ever be and I don't remember him ever going to the press to throw his front office or coaches under the bus. 

Adams wants things his way and he doesn't deserve that.  He's literally complaining about Adam Gase not making speeches at halftime.  That's not how football actually works.  You meet with your position coaches to fix the problem and get back out there.

Has he been on the field or in the locker room this offseason? Because that's where he's expected to be a leader, and he has yet to fail at that. He's getting treated like excrement by a shambolic club staffed by imbeciles who are all apparently incapable of delivering on the most basic requirements of their role. I don't give a freak what he calls himself on Twitter, stringing him along with promises of a contract offer that don't materialise and failing to even pick up the phone to talk to him are inexcusable failures.

It is if your starting point is "how can I make sure that Gase and Douglas are held absolutely blameless in this mess they've made?" As has been discussed ad nauseam in this thread, if the team were well run and/or successful then Adams probably wouldn't have started asking for a new contract at this stage. His position is that if he's going to be stuck on this shambles of a franchise working for these clowns, then he wants big money to do so - hence the story about him being willing to play out his rookie deal for the right team.

So yes, if he got his big contract then he probably wouldn't be complaining about Gase, because he'd be getting paid to put up with him. Gase isn't an excuse for wanting out, he's one of the main reasons.

Man, if you could pin Covid on Gase, you would. I think itís quite clear that nobody wants him here, so letís get that out of our systems. In this case, Iím sorry but heís the one with the least blame. He sucks but Adams would have perfectly played for him, heís made that point abundantly clear.

Imagine defending Gase when he cucked Mike Maccagnan after working with him for 3-4 months. He saw that he was incompetent and did what he had to do to save his own derriere. This is the same thing.

Id really like if Adams didn’t have to go through the media to make his point, but his alternative is shutting up and playing football for the next 2 years for a losing team with a shithead of a coach with serious doubts of a long term future here. Joe Douglas exacerbated this via the trade deadline last year and then saying Jamal would be a “Jet for life”, that they were opening contract negotiations, and then ghosting him for months and re-neging on the contract negotiation.

A lot of us thought/think that Gase is a excrement person and a excrement coach. Jamal confirming it isn’t mindblowing unless you’re a Jets homer.

I'm pretty sure Chris Johnson just had enough with over paying for talent and getting back nothing in return for it. Look at the awful shitty contracts Maccagnan gave out in his short time here. Wilkerson, Trumaine Johnson, Bell, Mosley, Enunwa all got paid and we got nothing out of any of them. So I understand his limiting what the team is spending these days. Unfortunately Chris Johnson doesn't know much about making good decisions for a football team so it seems so him putting the kill on paying Jamal will probably cause a rift between Jamal and the organization which will never be repaired, especially when you consider Adams has the maturity of a preteen.

There's literally zero mileage in saying "I want out because the head coach is no good", it's not going to accelerate his departure and it's not going to improve his chances of getting a big deal somewhere else.

I feel like contorting yourself into justifying a reason for him saying this other than it actually being true is a weirdly perverse view.

EXACTLY. And that's the thing. He's not clever and he's not acting in any logical way. He's extremely selfish and just letting his emotions override him again. On the field that's great, off it, is extremely stupid. But that's the way he is. 🤷🏽‍♂️

No. You appear to still be trying to argue that Adams isn't leaving because of Gase, despite the undeniably clear statement to the contrary. I'm not sure what you're struggling with here - he doesn't want to play on a excrement team with a excrement coach for rookie money. He has said that he will play on a good team with a good coach for rookie money, or for our excrement team with our excrement coach for big money. As we appear to be willing to fix neither problem, he wants out.

Let's summarise here: he's the best player on a playoff calibre defense that was continually let down by the worst offense in the league despite that being the head coach's department and supposed expertise. The head coach has made no effort to work with him or even talk to him, numerous players on that unit have been mistreated and/or alienated by said head coach, the prospects for this season aren't looking any better. He'd be willing to suck it up and wait for the inevitable dismissal of that head coach as long as the team pays him to once again spend a season putting the offense on his back and that of his defensive teammates, and the team indicated that they would do that and then ghosted him and strung him along.

And this is his fault somehow and nothing to do with Gase or Douglas?

No one has clean hands, but Adams is the only who comes out winning. Gase has been shown up once more as completely unsuited to the job he's in, Douglas has dropped the ball and will now be judged on what he gets in return as well as have to explain to other players both on the team and that he wants on the team why he couldn't look after an elite talent, the Johnsons look like cheap fucks uninterested in making their club successful despite being billionaires.

Meanwhile, Jamal's going to be on a better team with better coaching and more money.

He's been saying this for weeks now.  He's taking it to the next level. 

I'm not saying it's true or not true...I'm not in the room.  I'm just saying I believe Adams is at the point where he'll join the klu klux klan if it meant a trade out of new york.
I agree.

He has come out and asked for a trade through the media. That hasnt worked. So now he is trying other things, through tweets on social media and now by throwing Gase under the bus. If that doesnt work, he will probably go after Douglas or the ownership.

Really disappointed Adams did this, but if he is going to be a malcontent, we might have to get rid of him, which would be a real shame.

It does put even more pressure on Gase. Between his mediocre track record, fan sentiment, and now this, he probably has an unofficial playoff mandate at this point.

When are we going to accept that multiple things can be true?

Adams has handled this about as poorly as one could. He's almost certainly ruined his leadership status with the Jets locker room and needs to be traded at this point--both for his sake and ours.

Douglas should've handled this better. He's handled it very poorly. But the one thing I'll give him is that he's clearly hamstrung by the Johnsons.

Adam Gase is garbage. Both as a coach, and as a person. Let's stop with the giving him any benefit of the doubt at this point. Benefit of the doubt comes with either being completely new in a situation or having bought yourself clout in the past. Gase fits neither qualification.
Title: Re: Jamal Adams traded to Seahawks
Post by: AlioTheFool on July 24, 2020, 02:56:19 PM
The endgame here should be Adams is traded for as much value as we can get, Gase is fired before the season, promote Greg Williams to interim coach, and allow Douglas to choose his own guy come January.

Doesn't that lead to a rather obvious conclusion? Taking the best player from a poor team and putting additional pressure on an already poor coach to achieve even more than he already looks like he's going to be able to do leads us to the inevitable point of next April, where we have a new head coach and the picks that we got in exchange for Jamal, which won't be enough to get us a player as good as Jamal.

Or, we could just pay Jamal and fire Gase now, and then we'll go into the 22 season with Jamal Adams and a head coach who has already had a year to get things moving in the right direction.

Keeping Gase based upon your probably pretty reasonable surmise is the classic gambler's fallacy.

Here's the biggest issue with our team:  the best player is a strong safety in an offensive-minded league

Our best player needs to be Sam Darnold or we're likely going to suck.  We need to get him all the help possible, and if trading Adams does that, so be it.

This team sucks because we can't block and we can't score points.

We've had solid defenses for as long as I can remember, and the team still usually sucks.

I said this a page or two ago...

Adams publically pissing on Gase and Woody Johnson are only going to influence those guys to want him out of the building. When the head coach and the owner come knocking on Douglas' door and say "get this guy the hell out of here" it's going to happen. Adams is absolutely making the play to get out of NY.

Whether he truly believes the things he is saying, no one can be sure, but he's definitely airing it publically to try and get the hell out of dodge. That much is definitely true.

If we are going to keep him on the roster, then he needs to be on the field, that's the only benefit to Jamal Adams being a Jet right now.

I suspect that once TC begins, Jamal will be 'all football' / 'all business' and won't be bitching in the media. If that's true, by the time week 1 rolls around, it's not going to be at the forefront of the minds of people and he should be on the field.

Also Douglas doesn't 'run this team.' Like it or not, that's Gase's job. Douglas job is to build the team. Gase has to manage the players/egos and everything else and turn them into a cohesive unit.

The trade sucks, this entire organization sucks and needs to be burned to the ground. They did everything wrong here an I am kind of sick of them. I would have rather kept a homegrown superstar player than trade him for 2 back end 1st round picks that the team is going to freak up anyway. From what I have gathered the Jets did most everything wrong here, not that JA was in the right to not spout off. He brought a swagger to the team.

To be clear:
He should look for a new contract, players don't last long and have every right to look for due compensation, so I am ok with that. I am not ok with how either side handled matters, they were both wrong but the Jets handled this about as bad as I ever saw. Good for them, maybe this is the bottom. I would say it can't get worse but with the absolute worst coach in the NFL, it probably will go further south.

We got two 1st-round picks, a replacement starter, and an upgraded other pick for a guy who didn't want to be here anymore.

The Jets weren't good enough to win a title this year barring everything going right. This sets us up great for the future if we can draft well.

The best way to build around a young QB is to win in his rookie contract. We aren't quite ready for that. The next-best way is to have a lot of young cost-controlled talent around him. If we draft well, we can get that. It gives us a ton of flexibility going forward, too.

Seriously. When we shopped Jamal Adams at the trade deadline last year, this was the type of return that I would have been satisfied with. I still didn't want to do it then, but times have changed.

Since then, Adams has done everything he could to torpedo his trade value and try to take leverage away from the Jets. Instead, we got just as good a deal as I was willing to settle for 9 months ago before Jamal asked out and torched the organization and before a pandemic that could mess up the salary cap.

That's a major concern of mine

But picks will be at a premium because of presumably unique cap restraints. And I'd imagine with Seattle likely picking late, it does increase the odds of what have been a top 10 draft pick falling to the end of the first since nobody could evaluate talent properly.

I'd rather have a pick in a normal year, but this is definitely uncertainty

The original reason Adams was upset at the tram was because he wanted to remain on the team for the rest of his career and the listened to trafe offers right after telling him they wanted him here forever.

When they didn't follow up on a co tract extension he got mad and posted about it on the internet. I didn't like seeing it but the amount of vitriol that followed it from the fan base was in no way in proportion.

The argument that he was being selfish by asking for an extension while under a rookie deal seems null when multiple players received extensions from the same draft class this off-season at different positions.

The ultimate point I cannot get passed is the anger expressed toward him because he wanted to get paid what he thought was his value and stay on this team his whole career.

We don't know for sure what he was asking for but we know that Adams said the team never even tried to negotiate with him and the front office has done little to refute this, only making public statements that seemed to kick the can further down the road.

This smacks of ownership meddling, something that has wasted this team's few opportunities at success since Woody Johnson purchased this team. I have no reason to think Joe Douglas was on board with the ownership plan but I have no reason to be unequivocally loyal to a guy who has been here for only one season after the cycle of hope to despair to anger back to hope we've had since Bradway was first demoted and then allowed to stay with the team for another decade. The last time we traded off a stellar secondary player we ultimately got nothing back for him in return. I don't see a reason to think that this won't happen again.

Except you know, he didn't want or need an extension to get traded. Nor will Seattle be giving him one this season

Jamal wanted a record setting contract as a strong safety, while under team control for 3 years, while there's talks about the salary cap getting slashed 70 million next year

Jamals a prissy bitch

Also you can't get the anger? Jets fans went through this exact freaking scenario pretty recently. It's the Revis situation all over. Best player on team, becomes delusional thinking they shouldn't be paid what their position is worth but views themself as a player that transcends the game. Starts acting like a premadonna and forces the team to trade them.

It's the Revis excrement all over again, fans can and should be angry towards Jamal.  There's literally zero freaking reason Joe Douglas should have extended him, unless he wanted to bend over and take a team friendly deal. Instead he viewed himself as Tom Brady, Aaron Donald, and Khalil Mack

Good fuckin riddance. The compensation is also out of this world. JE's comments about this being Douglas' first real test as a GM, I'd say he has passed with flying colors given the hand and dance partner he has had to deal with. The only negative part is that this happened after the draft, but again, it's not like it was in Douglas' hands.

When they didn't follow up on a contract extension he got mad and posted about it on the internet. I didn't like seeing it but the amount of vitriol that followed it from the fan base was in no way in proportion.

***

The ultimate point I cannot get past is the anger expressed toward him because he wanted to get paid what he thought was his value and stay on this team his whole career.

I hated this, when the situation still seemed salvageable in the fall, a vocal portion of the fan base just started going REEEEE freak YOU to Adams which probably didn't help. In general I don't like to pin things on people who don't have any control over the situation, but deluging a 24 year old's social media with so much hate was just incredibly stupid.

He was annoying on social media for most of this offseason, but I didn't want to see him traded until the Manish Mehta interview. 

That was completely unprofessional and leaders should not go out of their way to smear their franchise. 

It couldn't be fixed after he took shots at both Gase and Douglas.  People overlooked the first tantrum he threw when someone leaked the Jets shopping him at last years deadline.  He whined about Douglas then too.

Agreed, but that's social media for you. Jets fans are particularly bad, but every fanbase sucks if you look for the negatives. People were awfully quick to turn on him.

Jets fans always seem to support management when players want to get more money. Then when the players eventually get out, we lament how crappy management is.

Adams wants to be the highest paid safety of all-time. 

While the Jets might have some cap space, they aren't good enough to invest that much money into a non-premium position. 

This team lacks talent at pass rusher and corner on defense and our offensive line and receivers are still a huge question mark.

Two firsts, a third, AND a capable starter is an exceptionally good haul for someone who was actively burning down the locker room.

Everything about this offseason suggests Joe Douglas wants to be well-equipped with cap space and draft picks in 2021 and beyond while still protecting and developing Darnold.  That's the right philosophy.  Our success in the 20's depends on who we can lure in at HC, not who we can pay at SS.

Pros:

Replaced Jamal with a solid safety in the deal for this year. Not forced to start Davis or bring back Big Head.

PR nightmare solved.  Distraction gone.

Cons: 

Lost an elite safety.


I have a feeling Big Doug is gonna flip those firsts for a million other picks in the draft.

He started acting like a punk after he met with team leadership and they told him that he was part of their long term plans, and then a week later he heard from someone outside of the organization that he was being considered in a trade. The Jets didn’t have any loyalty to Jamal and at that point I can’t say I blame him for losing his patience with and loyalty to a poorly run organization that he had given his all for.

After the contract extension excrement, I don’t blame him for forcing his hand. Joe Douglas is an absolute clown for uttering the words “Jet for life” and then going about negotiations the way he did.

it's a good deal, but i don't care about the picks. i don't care who the picks will be or what they will become. jamal adams was one of those 'picks' in 2017. he turned into something great. jamal was 'a character guy at every level', 'a winner', etc blah blah blah who turned sour because of the culture and environment present around this franchise. i don't care about the picks. the end product of these picks 5 years from now will likelier be a trade away from us than it will be a super bowl. a competent organization doesn't let excrement get this bad once; it keeps happening to us and it's going to keep happening.

This is one if the points that has stuck with me through my years of rooting for the team. I remember Kareem McKenzie saying this explicitly after he signed with the Giants.

And that's why I like what Joe Douglas wants to implement on this team. He has always talked about how important is to have the right culture. He chose a lot of team captains on the draft and when he's traded it's been for players who have also leadership traits and don't seem to be "me-first". Thats also why I wanted Jamal out almost since he started whining. We can hate Tom Brady and Bill Belichick all we want, but they have always put the team before the players. Brady has played for a lot less than his value would indicate (probably with under the table payments, but who cares). Same case for the Saints, same case for the Seahawks so far. Jamal is an amazing player and it was great to have him here, but you can't build around that emotional trainwreck (FTR, I think he'll do better in Seattle because he's not going to be one of the leaders there). Of course, you can't build around a horrendous, self absorbed coach but if we have the right core of players, and Douglas knows a bit of what he's doing, the next coach will have something good to build upon.

... Or Douglas will actually be excrement or resign in a year to go to the Dolphins, because we're the Jets, but I don't want to be slicing my wrists just yet.

Still canít believe the haul Joe Douglas got for a strong safety...and under these circumstances.

Good fuckin riddance. The compensation is also out of this world. JE's comments about this being Douglas' first real test as a GM, I'd say he has passed with flying colors given the hand and dance partner he has had to deal with.

Normally NOT for these kind of trades but freak Adams. The interview calling out the team management, whatever you think of them, can't be tolerated. Pisses me off a little that he got his way but we got back more than we got for Revis who was twice the player and a corner.

Pretty much exactly, yes. I fail to see the point of watching another season of Gaseball when the outcome is inevitable and known to us all. I also fail to see the value of getting rid of our best player. All of things that this team does seem to be specifically designed to ensure that we fail to make progress.

We're now talking about the prospect of replacing Darnold at the end of this season if they excrement the bed, and yet people are still saying that we shouldn't be firing Gase and that he somehow deserves another season. This fanbase is freaking insane.

2 things I'd love to know, but never will:

A) Did Doug actually have another discussion with Adams (as he said he would) and tell him honestly that a deal couldn't happen this year, leading to Adams throwing a excrement fit. Or did he just avoid the situation altogether, which I would blame Doug for regardless of his intentions.

B) Did Doug (privately) think the entire time that it is bad business to pay a safety, no matter how good as he is, top of the market on a rebuilding team with holes everywhere.  Think putting new rims on a rusted out 1982 Datsun.

If B is true, it's a masterful job by big Doug, however if A is true, he should have at least said they couldn't do a deal and told him to his face, assuming Adams is telling the truth about hearing nothing.

Either way, I'm fine.  We got a haul, got rid of a player who didn't want to be here. And it was a replaceable position.

I'll end with this.  Winning fixes everything.

It's going to be extremely interesting when next year comes around and Seattle has to give him a new contract.

After giving up what they did, they basically have to extend him.

I'm most interested in one or those extreme salary cap reduction scenarios. It'll make extending him a nightmare and our draft picks more valuable

Let's not forget this very plausible theory from December

https://jetswire.usatoday.com/2019/12/07/boomer-esiason-jerry-jones-tampering-jamal-adams-jets/

Quote
ďI donít trust Jerry Jones,Ē Esiason said. ďHe recruits players that are under contract with other teams by leaking potential trades to the media. Thatís just plain wrong. He did it with Earl Thomas when he was with the Seattle Seahawks and I believe he did it with Jamal Adams and the Jets. It put the Seahawks and the Jets in a bad spot. Then the players react because theyíre emotional and they donít get it. Suddenly social media is all over them.Ē

Esiason accused Jones of leaking reports that the Jets were shopping Adams to the media. The Jets have said that they were merely listening to offers, which reportedly included ones from the Cowboys. With that information in circulation, Adams became upset and took to social media to show his displeasure. The Jets were forced to do damage control and have now since amended a strained relationship.

This team needs an edge rusher, a #1 corner, and a #1 receiver much more than it needs an elite safety making $17 million a year. Now we might actually have the resources to fill those needs.

We never actually negotiated with him so there's no real telling what the final number would have been, or how it would have paid out re: guarantees, bonuses, incentives, and actual yearly split.

The fact that this resulted out of a refusal to come to the table rather than a failed attempt to negotiate - after they told him in the beginning of the year that they would rework his contract, mind you - is what really led me to lose faith in the ownership and in somewhat in Joe Douglas.

We'll see what he gets from Seattle in a year or two.

-Revis wasn't going to sign here

 The picks don't mean anything unless they turn into good players and I'm done giving new GMs the benefit of the doubt right off the bat. If we actually get to see the rookies this season and they perform I'll be a lot more optimistic about the draft picks we got from Seattle.

I think we'd be stupid not to agree that our defense and overall team as a whole lacked talent after 2018, and still does...

What he didn't understand is that you can't turn around a bad team overnight and he alienated a bunch of his teammmates with that comment.  He grew up in a home where he didn't have to struggle at all whatsoever, he played at a powerhouse private high school, and then SEC power LSU.  He couldn't handle losing because he never experienced it, in life or on the football field. 

Yelling and playing hard isn't leadership.  He's an awesome player and one of the best we've ever had on defense, but he was a part of those losing teams.  He was a part of those defenses that got Todd Bowles fired.  Sounds to me like Darron Lee and Jamal Adams are just immature and didn't bring much to the locker room in terms of leadership.  Not that we expected that from Lee, but it was certainly expected from Adams.

Le'Veon Bell calling him a liar is pretty damning.

I was willing to swallow giving Jamal a huge contract for sure. I wasn't thrilled about it but I was more than willing to do it.

However, when you factor in the "not giving a safety $17M" part in addition to a great draft haul, I think this was a deal we could not turn down. And that's before we get to Adams being a malcontent

That's also a problem.

We were so weak at EDGE that we had to take him out of coverage situations and blitz him more.  He was completely invisible for stretches at a time.

He only had 7 pass defended in 2019.  That's 98th in the league.  He also doesn't intercept the football.  His only INT in 2019 was a garbage time INT thrown by Jarrett Stidham.

I'm sure Polamalu and Reed got burnt more than a few times, and certainly had better support from the rest of their defense.

But I never saw those guys get burnt nearly as much as I have Jamal.

Jamal looked more like an elite version of Eric Smith than a poor mans version of Polamalu or Reed.

Regardless I would rather have a mediocre OL and wideout for Darnold than an Elite Erik Smith.

This is a little too much.

Jamal Adams was a versatile chess piece that was an elite run defender.  He didn't make many plays on the actual football.  I posted earlier that he only had 7 PDs and 1 garbage time INT.  The only "game-changing" play he made was the Daniel Jones strip sack TD.

Comparing him to Ed Reed is just as absurd as comparing him to a better version of Eric Smith.  Reed created turnovers and scored defensive TDs.  Jamal Adams wasn't that kind of safety.  He was an undersized linebacker.  I'm very interested to see how he does against George Kittle in 2020.

It's not about "finding the money"

We could easily find the money to pay Jamal 17 million a year. But could he ever produce that value?

What if the proposal to drastically cut the salary cup goes through with the bulk of the hit the next 2 years and suddenly jamals got a huge new chunk of guaranteed money attached to his name? Who do we cut? What positions do we skimp on signing? With Bell gone we almost certainly have a need at HB, and we have huge question marks at literally every single position on the offensive line.

Not to mention our stable or wideouts is dog excrement as well. With the exception of Crowder we're really lacking everywhere.

This team has the money for Adams, but the cost of flexability when finances could be a HUGE issue with a tremendous amount of uncertainty is far greater. Especially when the biggest needs of resources are all at positions that can be of pivotal importance for Darnold.  If you want to debate whether Adams is worth 17 million a year that's at least a point you can argue.

What you can't argue is that appeasing an All-Pro Erik Smith under team control for the next 3 years is worth handcuffing our flexibility, especially for key positions around Darnold during periods of unprecedented uncertainty

This is the greatest period of cap uncertainty in the history of the league, because of a global pandemic where we are still uncertain if there will even be a season.

I'm arguing about flexibility. I didn't argue we could pay all the other guys or couldn't, because none of us know what the future is going to hold.

It's floated that the cap could decrease by 70 million next year. If that's the case and we had to move all of Jamals money back, he could be looking at a 30 million dollar cap hit years down the road when Sam would be nearing his peak and or new contract.

This is a team sport and Jamals precious little ego is not worth more than the flexibility of JD to maintain a successful team

The only way in which to maintain a successful team is to actually build one in the first place, and losing your most talented and important players seems like a not good way to do that. But hey, we've been trying it all these years, maybe this is the time it finally works out, right?

So we make Jamal the highest paid safety of all time, there's a monstrous reduction to the cap over the next 2 seasons.

How do you fill the holes all over the roster without pushing back astronomical cap charges for Jamal to the future?

Are we building this team around Jamal Adams or Sam Darnold?

But hey we've drafted young promising QB's before and let the talent on the offense deteriorate around them. Maybe this is the time it works out right?

If as reported there's a possibility of there being a 70 million dollar reduction in the salary cap over the next year or two, then any deal that involves making Jamal the highest paid safety of all time 3 years before he becomes a free agent is a bad deal for the team.

When there's historical uncertainty why the freak would you absolutely cripple any degree of financial flexibility making a guy the highest paid player of all time at his position?

We literally might not be able to go out and make sure we have an offensive line next season because of cap restraints, yet Jamal wants to be freaking Scrooge McDuck

Not really since we never negotiated with him. It tells me what would have happened once the situation became untenable to both sides. An earlier negotiation might have yielded different terms.

I also think itís unrealistic to assume that Douglas would have shown up offering anything but settled for ďmy derriere is hanging out and Iím completely restrained, do whatever you want!Ē as a tactic.

Weíve seen multiple players deemed ďthe highest paid [position] over the years and watched them never collect the full value of the contract. Weíve also known multiple players agree to a yearly split they know they will never actually achieve, but pick because it makes them they highest paid [position] for that season.

It was a bad look that he trash talked both his coach and his GM to the media, Iím not denying that. But to assume he would have only agreed to a prohibitive contract despite us never actually offering him a contract to begin with is just asinine.

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, at least one team that's looked into Adams, presumably as a potential trade acquisition, believes the All-Pro eventually wants to be paid more than $20 million per season -- or the equivalent of the top defensive players in the NFL.

If a team just interested in trading for him found that out, what do you think Joe Douglas could have found out?

I think Doug didn't think having the highest paid safety in the league was a good idea for a rebuilding team.  He didn't value putting that much money towards that position.  You can certainly argue that he could have gone about the process better, assuming what you hear from Jamal's camp is true. 

I'll miss Jamal on the field, but he can freak off with all the twitter/instagram excrement and posting "luv" every 5 minutes.

Who gives a freak about his position? The resources should be allocated based upon the player's importance to the team, I don't care if they're listed as a safety or a full back or a water boy. Jamal Adams was the best and most important player on the defensive side of the ball (Mosley might become that but until he demonstrates an ability to stay on the field he's ineligible for consideration).

Exactly.  Jamal's agreed to play this year under the terms of his current contract so the negotiating an extension fun begins in 2021. 

Question: what if there's no season, do the current contracts carry over to the next year, i.e. would Seattle theoretically have control over Adams through 2022 (plus a tag year)?

I'm just saying that a consistent edge rusher is much more valuable than a safety that's only true impact against the passing game is pass rushing.

Williams had to take a defender out of the defensive backfield and use him as a pass rush threat to generate pressure because our edge depth chart is devoid of talent.  That is not an ideal situation. 

Adams did not make enough plays in the passing game.  That's why I don't consider him worth the money he supposedly wants.

If Maye/McDougald/Davis all stay healthy, I don't think there's that much of a drop off at safety for us. 

Obviously the loss of Adams limits what Gregg Williams was doing with safeties in the box last season, but Ashtyn Davis is a very versatile player too.  He isn't as good against the run at Jamal, no one in the NFL is.  But Davis lined up at linebacker at Cal and is a sure-tackler. 

McDougald is no slouch either.

I think that his value is not as any one thing, but in his flexibility to allow him to play multiple roles in the same scheme. I don't like the comparisons with Polamalu or Reed or anyone else (lol Eric Smith) because they don't really provide any contextual value. I think the problem you're describing isn't a failure of Jamal Adams, it's one of our roster and the fact that Williams had to use him in the box more than is optimal simply because of our complete lack of pass rush, but it's the versatility that he brings that enabled Williams to do it so successfully and with a better roster, that versatility just becomes even more valuable. He's the best spur we've seen in years and I think Carroll is going to be able to do a lot of things with him.

He's gone.  He was good.  This team needs ammo to fill big holes, not a really good safety. He was annoying. We got a huge haul. 

Options for the future:

-Jamal Adams paid at $15-$17 million per year. Same draft picks we were supposed to have in 2021.

- An average safety on a $5 million salary, along with two additional first round picks and another 3rd rounder this year.

Joe Douglas is here to build a team from the ground up to be in the playoff mix every year for a long time.  I personally believe it hamstrings your growth to pay Adams that much.  There is a way to do it that Douglas has been a part of for years.  He's watched the best do it.  It doesn't involve caving to unreasonable, forceful demands or overspending in places where it doesn't make sense.

He's the best spur we've seen in years and I think Carroll is going to be able to do a lot of things with him.

In the box, sure.  But I'll be surprised if that defense doesn't get roasted deep a lot in 2020.  Carroll might be forced to drop Adams into coverage more than he would like.  He could thrive there given more opportunities in coverage, but we didn't see much from him as a true safety. 

Look at what Mark Barron did in that role under Gregg Williams.  A player that was considered a bust by many thrived in that hybrid linebacker role under Gregg Williams and Dennard Wilson.  I'm interested to see who plays that role in 2020.  I'm thinking it's going to be Ashtyn Davis.  You don't need an elite player there.  You need a capable one. 

My very first year coaching, I coached defensive backs.  Our defensive coordinator at that time was a former safeties coach at University of South Carolina and he loved the SPUR position.

Our head coach (an offensive minded, OL coach) was terrified of the SPUR because you could move that player around and screw with alignments and blocking assignments.  What he failed to realize, is that creative playcallers (which he definitely wasn't) could erase that player, specifically on passing downs.  That's what I saw a lot with Adams, invisible or away from the play on passing downs.  Our HC wanted to put our best athlete at SPUR because he thought it was so important and when we took him out of the middle of the field, our defense suffered as a whole.  We moved that kid back to FS and put an athletic linebacker at SPUR.  Both got scholarships.

The athletic linebacker plays ILB at Wofford because he was awesome against the run and was a terror as a pass rusher, but he didn't make plays in coverage.

OK, but surely the point - in fact your original point - is that this is primarily an issue when you use that player too consistently in the box/LB role, and that his ability to play deep or high is what makes him so effective. If you're parking him in the box 80% of the time as a run stuffer and pass rusher then he's not a spur any more, he's an undersized linebacker who occasionally plays in deep coverage. If you lose the unpredictability of the role then you lose the value of it.

Where I do also see a difference in respective values to the Jets and Seattle is that he is ideally suited to dealing with the move TE. We spent the last ten years trying to find a player who can handle Gronkowski, then as soon as we finally get one the fucker goes and retires. This season Seattle have to deal with Kittle twice, Zach Ertz and quite possibly Travis Kelce in the big one - Adams has a huge strategic value to them there, I think.

Wilson goes down Week 1 and Smith leads Seattle to the worst record in the NFL.

Iíd be perfectly fine rooting against certain teams forever if it means we always be additional draft picks coming our way. I can quite easily root for the Jets to win a Super Bowl and Seattle to be 0-16 at the same time. Iíd say both of those things are about as likely as one another, but anything is possible

Should be noted that Douglas' comment about not promising an offer to Adams was unsolicited. Clearly, this was in response to a report about him allegedly lying to the Adams camp. #Jets

I mean I think Arizona isn't good and Goff sucks dick

So I'd be fairly surprised if Seattle came in 3rd

Unless Garappolo has a strong bounce back I'd kind of expect Seattle to win the division.

Of course this year's going to be too unpredictable

Arizona is good. Not as good as to actually take 2nd place from Seattle IMO but good enough to win 7-8 games. And, for me, SF has the best roster in the NFL, outside of the QB. With a little luck, 9-7 for the Seahawks is not out of the question.
Title: Re: Jamal Adams traded to Seahawks
Post by: Derek Smalls on July 28, 2020, 03:42:20 AM
It's the NFL. The Seahawks could go 6-10 if things break wrong. It's not likely given the QB and the track record, but they only outscored their opponents by 7 points last season, so by scoring differential, they were an 8-9 win team.

everyone knows we got great value in the deal, but i don't think we can reasonably say we fleeced the seahawks yet. we have to see how they do this year and the next couple of years. we have to see what we do with the picks

im a fan of JD's scouting/talent evaluation and i really liked the draft he put together this year, but we obviously cannot say anything about the results of this draft yet, and we can't assume that future picks that he has to use will be slam dunks

this is my biggest qualm with this organization. we are all looking at the draft picks, we draft stars and trade them away because we're not able to foster the environment of a winning organization consistently and make our players happy. it's simple, build a winner and players will be happy. the former players who've been our biggest allies and advocates have been the cogs from our 2009-2010 teams

the extra picks are just hypotheticals until joe uses them and hits on them. at this point i'd rather use the picks to obtain a bona fide player/star, but we probably don't have the luxury of going down that route, because we suck

The Jets stunk with Jamal Adams. 

He most definitely wants more money than Eddie Jackson.  The Jets were not in a spot to fork over that kind of cash, especially in a situation where the cap will probably be seriously impacted due to COVID-19.  The team has the money to pay him, but it's not the best allocation of resources when we have so many other holes and we are a ways away from competing. 

We can add two quality starters at other positions with the money saved not extending him.  We also got at worst, a replacement level starter at the same position in Bradley McDougald.

This franchise moves as far as Sam Darnold will take it.  Jamal Adams wasn't taking this team anywhere.  We have to protect the QB and get him some weapons.

i don't have any strong arguments with any of the stuff in these posts, i agree with this stuff.

i hope we build a solid, well-rounded team with an emphasis on protecting and supporting sam. i hope we become a good team. drafting well rounds 1-7 will have a big part in that, and I feel like JD is that sort of GM

i just wonder how contract negotiations will go in the future if/when we actually have a solid team with a bunch of keepers and we're tasked with trying to keep the best of the best and still make them happy, while ensuring the rest of the team remains solid. right now all we had was jamal adams and sam and we still couldn't find a way to keep jamal. maybe jamal was asking for way too much money, but our history in general shows that we have not been good with that. but honestly, there is no point in opening up that can of worms until we're actually good. i just want us to be good

Honestly, I think today helped validate the Adams trade. We desperately need talent at premium positions. Maye was great without Adams, and McDougald was fine, too. We aren't winning anything with or without a safety making a shitload of money.

I agree with your premise.

But, largely this was the same defense as last year. Are there any other big additions/subtractions I’m missing?

So why did we get our excrement pushed in by Josh freaking Allen? Can’t say how embarrassing it is to be the team that allows him to pass for 300 yards

He did throw it 46 times (6.8 yds per att), so when you throw that often, you expect 300 yards.

The defense did get better after they benched Desir, but it was also a blowout at that point.

Last year in Week 1, the Bills had 370 yards. This year, they had 404. Last year, the defense shut them down until Mosley went down. This year, Mosley was already out, and we lost Cashman in the game. We had Harvey Langi playing constantly. And they added Diggs.

This is a bad roster. Defensive line is solid and safeties are solid, but the LBs and CBs are bad.

Jamal is going to talk. He'll take digs at us all year. All we can do is hope they lose for the draft picks.

Honestly, I think today helped validate the Adams trade. We desperately need talent at premium positions. Maye was great without Adams, and McDougald was fine, too. We aren't winning anything with or without a safety making a shitload of money.

I never wanted to trade Adams unless we got two 1sts, and I still feel that way, but now that we have them, I'm excited to hopefully makeover the offense.

Sure. In isolation, if we look at it like a game of Madden, it was a good trade. But if we look at it in the context of what it says to the league, it was a freaking disaster. Adams told the entire league that the team doesn't know how to win and they aren't prepared to reward good players, and that if you're any good you're best off not being on the Jets. And then both he and the Jets went out today and proved him 100% correct.

The holes this team has were put on display today.  This team is a rebuild (as usual). We need linebackers, corners, and WRs. We need draft picks and to hit on them. Darnold was the surprise today.  He sucked derriere.  I didn't expect that.

You say youíre surprised. Why did you expect Darnold to be better? Because heís a year more experienced? Is that it?

Yes.  Also no scheme change for once and he's healthy. I didn't expect Pro Bowl, but not this.

I don't care "what it says to the league." That's meaningless to me. They got two 1st-round picks for him when nobody thought they would get that. It's not like they sold low on him.

Adams was already saying things about the Jets when he was here. He demanded a trade and then went scorched earth. That was the message to the league. The damage was done well before the trade (if there was any long-term damage).

Because Darnold played like a below average starting quarterback in 2018 and 2019, and the natural progression of a 3rd-year quarterback entering his 2nd year in a system should be to get better.

If the expectation for a 23-year old player is to not get better, then why are we even bothering to develop him? Of course a 3rd-year quarterback should expect to improve over his 2nd year, especially when his 2nd year wasn't very good.

Well, you should. Because if you want us to actually be able to sign good FAs without having to overpay, or to keep our own drafted players without them agitating to leave or insisting on such a big new contract that we have no choice but to trade them, then we need to not be seen as the toilet of the league.

They've done a excrement job putting talent around him, no argument from me there. But young players should be on an upward trajectory regardless. If you're only as good as the talent around you, then you're probably not that good.

I expect Darnold to bounce back, but this was alarming.

That's all irrelevant. Win games and the reputation of the Jets will improve. The Jets have to overpay for free agents because they haven't made the playoffs in a decade. If the Jets win, none of the rest matters.

If the Jets somehow bounce back and go 12-4 this year, it's not like free agents will be like "Oh, Jamal was upset, so I won't sign with the Jets." And if we had Jamal and went 7-9 instead of 5-11 this year, that wouldn't have made a difference either.

Maybe Darnold will never be great. Drafting a QB high, hanging him out to dry, and then giving up on him halfway through is destined to fail, every time.

I agree that the Jets have done a miserable job surrounding him with talent, and that makes things a lot harder for Darnold to develop.

And bringing this back to the Adams trade, that's why we need to use those extra draft picks to finally build up the offense. Build up the offensive line. Get a couple receivers in here. Give Darnold or whoever replaces Darnold a better chance to succeed.

I’m aware we need to use draft picks to build up the offense, let the front office know. I was screaming when we picked back to back safeties and Nathan Shepherd Jachai polite and Blake Cashman and Davis/Zuniga/Morgan.

And we wonder why we are here and our franchise QB is struggling

Even if Darnold is destined to suck, drafting a new QB would be retarded. Coming here with a excrement OL, no offensive weapons would doom them to immediately fail

Stack the OL, stack the wideouts, if Darnolds still trash you can bring the new QB to a good landing spot

Damn, football must work differently to literally every single other professional sport in the world, because in those players talk to each other and make their decisions based upon a variety of factors, including what their peers say about clubs that they might choose to join. Good to know that in football players purely look at a team's win/loss record in the previous season.

Okay, but that has nothing to do with the trade. Jamal was angry at the Jets and ripped the franchise constantly in the media. Your solution would have been to keep him and everything would have been fine?

The damage was already done before the trade.

My solution would have been to pay him, because watching that $30M+ of cap space on the field today was no fun at all.

We're on the same page there. But at some point, the quarterback needs to show more signs of development than he has.

Some of the plays he was missing today were alarming and had nothing to do with his supporting cast.

I would have been fine keeping him and signing him before all the excrement went down. Granted, that also would send a message to the league - whine about your contract with the Jets, and you'll get a raise. We don't know how much money Jamal wanted.

But there's no guarantee that would made made everything better, especially once he demanded the trade.

Once he goes public with the trade demands, we don't know if he would have resigned. He demanded a trade. Those don't always get immediately resolved with a contract. Some do, some don't. If the place is as bad as you (and he) say it is, why would he resign?

Second of all, even if we did sign him, why would we expect him to all of a sudden fall in line? If we went 6-10 this year, he'd probably still try to force his way out in a trade in March. He tried to get to Dallas last year at the deadline. What would stop him from trying to get to Dallas next offseason?

I wanted to make it work with Jamal. But when you can get two 1st-round picks, a quality replacement, an upgraded mid-round pick, tons of extra cap space, and you alleviate your roster of a headache, I think you had to do it.

Who is arguing that?

The argument is that we're a 4-8 win team with Jamal and without Jamal, and the biggest reasons why are our deficiencies at some of the most important positions on the football field (OL, EDGE, WR, CB).

Adams definitely would have helped today, but Maye didn't miss much of a beat in Adams' role.

I posted this on Twitter yesterday, and I'm going to repeat it here.

I think Maye is a more overall talented safety than Adams. My only concern with him is that he's had trouble staying healthy.

That said, the Jets defense would be better with both Adams and Maye in the secondary.
