The New York Jets’ best player doesn’t appear to be very happy with the organization heading into the 2020 NFL season. Safety Jamal Adams wants a new contract, and it’s raised questions about his future.

New York has picked up Adam’s fifth-year option, which will pay him $9.86 million in 2021 before his deal runs out. The 24-year-old is seeking an extension beyond that season, but the Jets are reportedly unwilling to negotiate just yet.

Sources have told’s Rich Cimini that the Jets let Adams know they prefer to wait on a long-term extension. Adams reportedly believes New York is dragging its feet, prompting trade speculation.

More than half of the NFL’s teams have contacted the Jets about a potential trade, according to ESPN, and Adams is reportedly open to a trade if he doesn’t get an extension from his current team. New York reportedly isn’t looking to trade its star.

The two sides have had a rocky relationship since last year. After it was reported that New York fielded offers for Adams from the Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens at the 2019 trade deadline, Adams said Jets general manager Joe Douglas went behind his back by discussing a potential deal.

There were rumors heading into April’s draft that Adams might potentially be available for the right price.

Adams will make $3.58 million next season. He’s been paid $18.75 million since being selected by the Jets sixth overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

A Pro Bowl selection in each of the last two years, Adams was named First-Team All-Pro in 2019. He recorded 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception in 14 games.

The Jets went 7-9 last season, missing the playoffs for the ninth straight year.
