There have been talks of Jamal Adams having a new team to play for since the middle of the 2019 season, but after talks cooled down, it got going again in 2020 after the New York Jets safety requested that he be traded to another franchise.
ESPN insider Adam Schefter recently shared Adams’ list of preferred destinations, which includes Baltimore, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Tampa Bay.
According to Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated, a trade involving Adams to the 49ers is “picking up steam.”
“I just got a direct message from a well-placed source saying Jamal Adams to the 49ers is “picking up steam.”
This doesn’t mean Adams is coming to the 49ers, but it certainly has more reality than it did a few days ago. And it would be a big deal.”
In 2019, the 24-year-old intercepted one pass, batted down seven passes, forced two fumbles, recovered one fumble, scored one touchdown and recorded a whopping 6.5 sacks — rare for a defensive back.
The Jets took Adams with the sixth pick of the 2017 draft and he has exceeded every expectation, while missing just two games during his three-season career.
