Jamal Adams has been wanting a trade from the Jets for months now, and ahead of training camp, he’s fanning the flames hoping for some action.
The Jets controversially hired Adam Gase after a shaky head coaching debut in Miami, and his second stint is going even worse.
Adams, the team’s star safety is due for a contract extension, and without movement on that front as well as a reported lack of leadership from his head coach, he wants out.
Adams put Gase on blast Friday, calling out that leadership, saying he’s not the right leader for them.

“I don’t feel like he’s the right leader for this organization to reach the Promised Land,” Adams said. “As a leader, what really bothers me is that he doesn’t have a relationship with everybody in the building. At the end of the day, he doesn’t address the team. If there’s a problem in the locker room, he lets another coach address the team. If we’re playing s—-y and we’re losing, he doesn’t address the entire team as a group at halftime. He’ll walk out of the locker room and let another coach handle it.”
Adams will reportedly report to training camp, but has made it clear he’ll only be doing so out of respect for his teammates – not the organization.
