Jamal Adams has been the subject of a potential trade move since the 2019 season and the rumors have only gotten stronger in the offseason.
It is now May, and Adams is still a member of the New York Jets and C.J. Mosley would like for it to remain that way. The New York Jets linebacker essentially called out his own team for even thinking about trading Adams to another team.
In an interview with ESPN’s Rich Cimini, Mosley called the possibility of trading Adams “a crazy move.”
“First of all, he’s one of the leaders on the team,” Mosley said. “That’s first and foremost. He brings that extra energy whether guys want it or not. Sometimes you might be tired or not feeling good, but as soon as he steps on the field, you’re going to hear that voice and he’ll be flying around. To have that presence in the secondary, a guy that can make plays in the passing game and also plays in the backfield — in the box — that’s always exciting.”
Adams still has two years remaining on his current contract.
During 14 games played last season, he racked up 75 tackles, seven passes defensed, 6.5 sacks and a fumble return for a touchdown.
