It was not too long ago that superstar safety Jamal Adams was saying all the right things, indicating that he wanted to remain with the Jets for many years down the road, and that New York is the place for him.
Fast forward to the past few months, where Adams pulled a Stefon Diggs — essentially forcing the team to trade him, by becoming a major distraction, and continually trashing them by using the media.
And it worked, as the Jets traded Adams to the Seahawks this weekend, finally ridding themselves of the headache he created. Unfortunately, they really don’t have any other young superstars on their roster.
It’s likely that Adams’ former teammates weren’t happy about how he forced his way out, and it didn’t take long for one of them to weigh in. Jets running back Le’Veon Bell threw some shade at Adams for how he flip-flopped, in terms of how he managed his career path.
Bell is likely speaking for the rest of his teammates, too. Adams really put himself first with this ugly game of chess.
