Adams responded with a simple message: "Noted!"
NY shipped the star safety and a fourth-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft to the Seattle Seahawks for their first-round picks in the 2021 and 2022 NFL Drafts plus a third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and safety Bradley McDougald, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "That's where I hold myself, in that regard".
Before Ramsey and Adams were traded, they each pushed to be dealt by the Jaguars and Jets, respectively. Adams reportedly gave the Jets seven teams he'd liked to be traded to, which included the Seahawks, but the team did not plan to trade him at the time, according to ESPN.
Adams is entering the fourth year of his contract, can have his fifth-year option picked up, and is set for free agency in 2022. The outspoken defender requested a trade in June after growing exhausted of waiting for a contract extension offer.
Guardiola: Not much respect for Arsenal off the pitch
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said Arsenal deserve credit for what they do on the pitch but he has little respect for them off it.
As for Adams, his time in NY ended bittersweetly. After McDougald shared his excitement over becoming a Jet, Adams made sure to congratulate him and let him know that he'll enjoy his time in NY.
Jets coach Adam Gase had previously said he hoped to keep Adams on June 26. He ripped owner Woody Johnson for accusations that he made racist and sexist remarks in his stint as an ambassador to the United Kingdom. "Wrong is wrong!" Adams wrote in the tweet.
Upon announcement of the trade, Jets star running back Le'Veon Bell, who's no stranger to contentious contract negotiations, also shared his thoughts. Adams, on the other hand, has 273 tackles, two interceptions, six forced fumbles and 25 passes defensed. If the rumors are true the 2021 salary cap is going to be slashed, this team could end up being dismantled by free agency next season so there really is no tomorrow to win with Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback. Adams, who is just 24 years old, has also been selected to the last two Pro Bowls.
His new team is scheduled to host the Jets on December 13.
