Jets, Adams at stalemate in extension talks

That's a more-than-decent haul.

The Cowboys and Jets discussed an Adams deal a year ago at the trade deadline, but it never happened. Unfortunately for NY, a team like the Dallas Cowboys is not going to part with significant draft compensation unless Adams is signed to a long-term deal. The Adams camp is upset, claiming the Jets are dragging their feet. Adams is due to make $3.5 million in 2020. As a matter of fact, there were reports that the Dallas Cowboys discussed a trade with the Jets involving the LSU product. Therefore, the Jets appear to be putting off his contract until the final year of his deal. As the friction builds up, a trade is still possible, per Myers, but NY doesn't seem inclined to move the needle one way or another.

The Jets do, however, have every intention of making Adams the highest-paid safety in league history at some point. He was a first-team All-Pro selection for the first time last season.

Adams, who is now eligible for a contract extension, wants a new deal immediately, but NY - which has at least two years of club control left, not including a potential franchise tag in 2022 - wants to wait. Extending Adams would be the cherry on top for Douglas' first offseason at the helm of New York's front office, but it doesn't sound like a new deal is happening right away.

According to Vacchiano's source, the team has not engaged in trade talks with any club since last year's deadline, though that has not stopped teams from calling. Douglas has a lot of roster holes, and Adams does not play a premium position.
