Jamal Adams

When the Jets released Wednesday's injury report for Week 14, they had their top defensive player atop the list.

Safety Jamal Adams did not practice after he sprained his left ankle in Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

With Adams as the latest casualty, the injury bug has bitten the Jets throughout the 2019 season, particularly on defense.

Jets S Jamal Adams hasn't yet been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, but it seems to be trending that way.

Head coach Adam Gase said on Wednesday that he hasn't been told Adams has a high ankle sprain, but Adams remains in a walking boot.

"He's gotta really feel good for me to put him back out there," Gase said when asked about a potential timetable.

Jets S Jamal Adams had tears in his eyes when he was talking after Sunday's loss to the Bengals, and it was mainly due to the boot on his foot. 

Well, head coach Adam Gase revealed Monday the reason for that boot was an ankle sprain for the Pro Bowl safety. 

Gase added that Adams will undergo an MRI and "that kind of stuff" to further assess the injury. He will be considered "legit week-to-week," and Gase doesn't believe that he'll be practicing this week.

If the loss to the Bengals wasn't crushing enough, Jets S Jamal Adams was seen with a walking boot in the locker room after the game. 

And whether it was the boot itself or the loss as a whole, Adams was very emotional while talking to reporters. 

Adams was talking with tears in his eyes, and almost broke down a couple of times before calming down a bit. With his voice very low, here's what he said about his current situation:

Jamal Adams has been playing out of his mind lately. It seems like every big defensive play for the Jets involve their defensive captain, and if that continues on Sunday against the Bengals, he could be setting a new NFL record. 

Over the past three games -- all of which have been Jets wins -- Adams has collected 5.5 sacks. And when you include his one against the Dolphins in Week 9, Adams already has 6.5 sacks on the season with five games left to play. 

The NFL record for sacks in a single season by a defensive back was set by S Adrian Wilson back in 2005 with the Cardinals at eight. It's a record Adams promised he would break.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton did not mince words when asked Wednesday about safety Jamal Adams.

Ahead of the Week 13 game against the Jets (4-7) Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, the Bengals (0-11) get Adams and a resurgent New York defense off last weekend's 34-4 win over the Oakland Raiders (6-5).

Adams had half a sack, three quarterback hits and seven tackles Sunday as the Jets harassed Raiders quarterback Derek Carr -- an effort that conjured a comparison to former Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu.

Another week has gone by, and another Jets win transpired. This team is simply clicking everywhere, and while the offensive side of the ball has garnered a lot of praise, it has been the defense that continues to step up and prove that they are one of the best units in the league. 

And that's come with injuries to starters like Avery Williamson, C.J. Mosley and Trumaine Johnson, to name a few. Depth players have had to step up, and lately, none has been more noticeable than rookie CB Bless Austin

The Rutgers product has been a fan favorite during this three-game win streak, as injuries to Darryl Roberts, along with Johnson, have given Austin the opportunity to make a good first impression on defense.

Jets safety Jamal Adams has boasted a lot recently about how he's one of the best defensive players in the NFL -- and how he should be viewed as being on the same level as Tom Brady and Aaron Donald.

One person who has taken exception to that is Darren Carr -- the brother of Derek Carr and David Carr.

Carr posted a picture on Twitter of now-retired Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski beating Adams in the end zone and captioned it 'K.' That led to a response from Adams.

The Jets came out for pregame warmups Sunday morning at MetLife Stadium and were welcomed with heavy boos from visiting Raiders fans, and that did not sit too well with the players set to suit up in Jet Green.

"I'm not going to lie to you, when we came onto the field, we felt disrespected," Jamal Adams said after the win. "We got booed in our own home stadium by the Oakland fans. We came back into this locker room. It was a hell of a talk. It was something that needed to be said."

"I'm not going to get into what was said, but we felt disrespected. I came in here and sparked it up."

Jamal Adams got a lot of laughs a few weeks ago when he compared himself to Tom Brady and Aaron Donald, and a few more when he refused to back down from those words. His point, though, was serious - that he's really important to the Jets, and he should be treated that way.

The last two weeks he made that clear on the field.

In fact, it'll be hard to find a better two-game stretch in Adams' three-year NFL career. He had three sacks on Sunday in the Jets' 34-17 win over the Redskins, and for a second straight week was making plays all over the field. He's now had five sacks in the last two weeks, six in the last three, and that season-total of six is a Jetsrecord for a defensive back.

The game against the Giants wasn't a fluke. Sam Darnold really is back on track.

The Jets' franchise quarterback had one of his finest games of the season on Sunday, shredding the awful Washington Redskins in a 34-17 win. He completed 19-of-30 passes for 293 yards with four touchdowns and an interception.

Granted, it was against the Redskins and they are a truly bad team. But the 22-year-old Darnold showed a lot of the things that made people think he was destined for greatness before he began to regress earlier this season. He made a lot of throws outside the pocket, which has always been his specialty. He showed patience and leadership in the pocket, and some fantastic throws.

The saddest thing about the current state of the Jets is that this was supposed to be the year they arrived. After nine years of waiting for a playoff game, after enduring three years of rebuilding under ex-GM Mike Maccagnan, it was all supposed to come together in 2019.

Not only didn't that happen, but now the Jets appear to be on the brink of a rebuilding project again.

Jets owner Christopher Johnson was candid when asked about S Jamal Adams on Sunday, saying "I would love to have Jamal on this team forever."

The feeling is mutual.

"S--t, I want to be a Jet for life, too," Adams told reporters on Wednesday.

Jets fans don't want to think about this past NFL trade deadline when S Jamal Adams was reportedly almost dealt away. He wasn't traded, but it didn't create a little rift between Adams and the front office. 

Since then, the choppy waters have settled, and Jets owner Christopher Johnson may have just put them at a standstill with his comments Wednesday on the dynamic Pro Bowler.

"Jamal is a fantastic player. We saw that this Sunday. He's an extraordinary player," Johnson told reporters. "He's the kind of player you can build around -- you should be around given the chance. Absolutely amazing."

After arguably the best performance of his career and one of the best defensive performances in the NFL this season, Jets safety Jamal Adams has been rewarded.

Adams, who had nine tackles, two sacks, and two forced fumbles in Sunday's win over the Giants, has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

On one of the sacks Adams had on Sunday, he ripped the ball right out of Daniel Jones' hands and raced to the end zone for a touchdown.

Adam Gase joined ESPN and YES Network's The Michael Kay Show on Tuesday to discuss the Jets' huge win over the Giants this past week.

Gase discussed the performance of his young quarterback Sam Darnold and how his play seemed different when compared to other weeks this season.

"I thought he played really well," Gase told Michael Kay. "He did a great job of controlling really the things that he could control. He did a good job of making the right decision when he was in the pocket, whether it be taking a sack, throwing the ball away, just those little tiny things instead of trying to go out there and win it by himself. He did a good job of spreading the ball around, doing what he had to do to move the ball down the field."

There's nothing else you can think of to say about Jamal Adams' performance against the Giants other than that he was all over the place in this game.

The third-year safety out of LSU was already having a good weekend with the Tigers beating Alabama on their home field, but he carried that into an even better performance at MetLife Stadium for the Jets.

Adams led the Jets with nine tackles, two sacks on Daniel Jones, a pass defended and forced two fumbles, including a strip sack that turned into a fumble recovery for a touchdown. Adams ripped the ball right out of Jones' hands after beating Saquon Barkley off the line of scrimmage, and took the ball to the house without it ever touching the ground.

In their first game against each other at their shared home in MetLife Stadium, Daniel Jones and Sam Darnold put up some solid numbers for their respective teams. But Darnold got the last laugh as the Jets pulled out a 34-27 win over the Giants.

On paper, it seems that Jones got the best of Darnold based on individual statistics--Jones finished the game 26-of-40 for 308 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions, compared to Darnold's not as eye popping performance of 230 yards and one touchdown on 19-of-30 passing--Darnold also ran in for a touchdown, as well.

But the glaring issues for Jones came at a familiar spot that's been hurting him all season: holding on to the football while in the pocket.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The season has already been embarrassing for the Giants. On Sunday they managed to make it worse.

And that's a huge problem for Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and his coaching staff after the Giants lost to the awful Jets, 34-27. Things were bad enough, but a loss to the crosstown rivals is a humiliating defeat that is sure to enrage owner John Mara. Even worse: They've now got two weeks to stew about it, thanks to an ill-timed bye.

To this point, Shurmur wasn't really on a hot seat and his coaching staff wasn't in much danger. The Giants underwent an uncharacteristic, in-season change just two years ago and don't really have an appetite to do that again. GM Dave Gettleman also genuinely seems to like Shurmur as a coach, and according to a team source, has preached patience and believes the team is headed in the right direction.

Jets star safety Jamal Adams says he has had "good" conversations with GM Joe Douglas and head coach Adam Gase, and that he and Douglas have apologized to each other, according to Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News.

"Yeah, I mean I would love to be here man," Adams said. "I would love to be here, it's simple as that. I want to bring success to this organization, I want to bring a Super Bowl to this organization. That's why I feel like I was placed in New York, to kind of pick up where my dad left off. His career was cut short, and I just feel like that's my calling. Do I want to be here? Yes, of course."

Since the trade deadline on Oct. 29, Adams has voiced his frustration with the team after he was reportedly shopped in trade negotiations with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Giants and Jets are a combined 3-14, one year after going a combined 9-23, one year after going a combined 8-24. That's a 20-61 record over the last 2 ½ seasons, for a "winning" percentage of .246.

So no, the Giants and Jets don't match up particularly well with the rest of the professional football world right now. But how do they match up with each other?

In advance of their big showdown on Sunday at the Meadowlands, let's take a look:

Sunday's 26-18 loss to the Dolphins was enough for the Jets to handle, but New York nearly left Miami with two key injuries.

First, defensive tackle Steve McLendon made his exit after he suffered an apparent shoulder injury.

Then there was safety Jamal Adams, who underwent an evaluation for a possible head injury.

"Right now, Adam is our coach and I'm pretty sure he's going to continue to be the coach, so we have faith in him," Adams said. "That's not going to change. Whoever is in the building, that's who we're riding with. So I got his back, and that's just what it is."

A very calm Adams was honest with reporters while talking about the current state of the team.

There are a lot of reasons why this season has gone off the rails for the Jets, and a lot of excuses that Adam Gase could easily use to explain it.

But really, there's no excuse for this.

The Jets just lost a game, by a significant amount, to the worst team in the NFL -- or what was the worst team in the NFL -- and a team that many people around the league seriously believe are trying to lose so they can the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. The Jets' 26-18 loss in Miami has to rank right up there as one of the worst losses in franchise history.

Just as the situation between the Jets and safety Jamal Adams begins to mend itself, new information about the NFL trade deadline rumors involving the Pro Bowler came to light on Sunday morning. 

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jets asked the Cowboys -- the team that was close to landing Adams this past Tuesday -- for another Pro Bowler in G Zach Martin. Jerry Jones said no immediately, and Jets GM Joe Douglas supposedly followed up with LT Tyron Smith being a part of the deal. That was also a negative for Dallas. 

With the Jets' offensive line issues this season, it makes sense that Douglas was trying to see if the Cowboys would give up one of their top linemen for the dynamic safety in Adams. In the end, though, the deal fell through with the Jets wanting a first-round and two second-round picks.

The Jets have ruled out starting cornerback Trumaine Johnson and center Ryan Kalil for the team's Week 9 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Johnson suffered an ankle injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8 and has not practiced all week. While Kalil is dealing with knee and elbow injuries, and has not practiced all week as well. He played just 26 snaps (43 percent) in Week 7 and 32 snaps (55 percent) in Week 8 after playing in almost every one of the Jets offensive snaps through the first six weeks of the season.

C.J. Mosley is expected to miss 5-6 weeks with a groin injury, while wide receiver Josh Bellamy (foot and shoulder) and safety Rontez Miles (neck and hip) were also ruled out for Week 9.

A few days after trade deadline rumors led to a rift between the Jets and star safety Jamal Adams, things are starting to improve.

Adams, who the Jets were receiving calls on and who later confirmed his desire to be traded to the Cowboys if a deal went down, spoke with team owner Christopher Johnson on Friday, with Adams referring to him afterward as "very genuine and authentic."

"Me and Mr. Johnson are really close," Adams said. "I have a lot of respect for him. ... that was the guy that i was comfortable with talking to. ... he cares not just about football players. He cares for you as a person."

Jets safety Jamal Adams popped up on Thursday's injury report and was listed as limited, but head coach Adam Gase said Friday that the third-year pro had his foot stepped on late in practice. He sat out the rest of practice, but suiting up for Sunday's Week 9 matchup with the Dolphins.

"Someone stepped on his foot pretty deep into practice," Gase said. "We were just being precautionary, but everything is fine there."

While Adams is expected to play, a slew of players will be limited in Friday's practice, including tight end Chris Herndon. Herndon injured his hamstring while serving a four-game suspension to begin the season and has yet to make his 2019 debut.

Speaking on Uninterrupted's '17 Weeks' podcast, Jets running back Le'Veon Bell explained that there were at least four teams interested in trading for his services -- the Texans, Packers, Chiefs, and Steelers.

"The trade rumors were definitely true," Bell said. "It was interesting, just after being in this city for six, seven months, I love this city. I love the city of New York. I actually stay in New Jersey but I'm up in New York all the time. I love the fans of New York City."

It's been an eventful week for Jets safety Jamal Adams.

After his name came up in trade rumors earlier this week, Adams was listed as a limited participant at Jets practice on Thursday. He had not been listed on the report before Thursday, and head coach Adam Gase did not mention Adams among the Jets' injured players at his pre-practice press conference.

Adams remains steadfast in not wanting to talk to Jes GM Joe Douglas about the situation just yet, saying that things need to cool down first. And while Adams was saying how he felt, Le'Veon Bell made sure to crack a joke on he way past the podium.

Bell, who is usually in high spirits, said on Thursday that he hasn't discussed the situation with Adams at all.

Jamal Adams is furious and standing his ground. He's "hurt" that the Jets "shopped" him, and doesn't care that they said that's not what they did. He won't commit to a long-term future in New York. He'll only say he's happy to be with the Jets "right now."

Adams admitted that he needs to "cool down" and there's always the chance that he will. He will talk to Jets GM Joe Douglas at some point, and maybe that will be enough. But right now, one day after the NFL trading deadline and his near-deal to the Dallas Cowboys, it's hard to imagine this relationship getting much better.

It's also hard to imagine Adams being on the field with the Jets on Opening Day next year.

Jets S Jamal Adams saw his name thrown around in NFL trade deadline rumors, with him reportedly close to being moved to Dallas to play for the Cowboys before that 4 p.m. timestamp. That never came to fruition, but the fact he was out there for the taking in the first place rubbed him the wrong way. 

Speaking after practice on Wednedsay, Adams was extensive in his explanations to reporters. He explained how he went to GM Joe Douglas and head coach Adam Gase prior to the Jets' game against the Jaguars to say he wishes to remain a Jet, yet he learned the team was shopping him anyway. 

Adams repeatedly said, "I hold myself to a high regard." And that regard is among some of the NFL's elite.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Le'Veon Bell and Jamal Adams were on the trading block on Tuesday, and both could have been dealt if the price was right. Was a deal unlikely? Yes. But it was certainly possible. And it might be possible again in the offseason, too.

But the best-case scenario for the Jets in the offseason is exactly what happened on Tuesday, when both Bell and Adams learned they'd still be wearing Jets green. Because those two, along with quarterback Sam Darnold, are the three players the Jets should build around.

They can't dump them for future draft picks and subject their weary fan base to another rebuilding project again.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Joe Douglas had a pretty uneventful trading deadline day. After all, he didn't do anything. His big move - the Leonard Williams trade - came the day before.

That should've been the story, and it would've been the story, except for one important thing: Douglas made it clear that he was willing to listen to anyone about almost everyone. If the phone rang, he was going to answer it. If someone had an offer to make, he would listen, just in case it was an offer he couldn't refuse.

The Jets made one move at the NFL trade deadline, but it could have been more for GM Joe Douglas as rumors were flying around prior to teams needing to put the pencils and deals down at 4 p.m. on Tuesday. 

Players like S Jamal Adams, WR Robby Anderson, and RB Le'Veon Bell highlighted the rumor mill leading up to the deadline, but the Jets remained steadfast and didn't lower their value of these players, among others.

Many expected the Jets to sell off their appealing assets, especially with their current 1-6 record. Douglas spoke to the media to address these rumors, and simply said this...

Shortly after the NFL's 4:00 p.m. trade deadline came and went, Jets GM Joe Douglas met with the media to discuss the move the team made, and the ones they didn't make. 

In his opening remarks, Douglas said that with all the names that were floating around in rumors today, seemingly Le'Veon Bell, Robby Anderson, Jamal Adams, the Jets were not actively shopping those players to other teams, but they would listen when calls came in. 

"It's been a very busy few hours, as you guys can imagine. We fielded a lot of phone calls on a lot of players. Some players it's been public, other players it hasn't been public," Douglas explained. "One thing I will say is that on the players that were leaked out today, those weren't players that we were shopping, but where I'm from and what I was taught is that when a team calls you, you should always listen to what they have to say. 

"So, that's what we did, we listened, we had good conversations, there was some productive conversations, but at the end of the day, there was no fire sale, there's no garage sale going on with these players. We value these guys a lot, and ultimately the offers that we received for these players didn't equal the value that we have for them."

The Jets were engaged in talks with the Cowboys and other teams on a potential deal for Pro Bowl S Jamal Adams. But, as the NFL traded deadline came to an end at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Adams remained in New York.

Multiple reports from around the league stated that the price was just too high for the Cowboys to commit. According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, GM Joe Douglas was asking for "a first-round pick, plus" for the 24-year-old. Vacchiano also asked if it was two first-rounders the Jets wanted, and the source answered "pretty close."

ESPN's Adam Schefter also said that the Ravens were involved in talks with the Jets, but again, the price was too high.

The Jets took their second-straight loss in Week 8, a 29-15 defeat at the hands of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Safety Jamal Adams was particularly emotional following the game. 

The oft-team leader took a lot of the blame for the loss. 

Early in the game, Jags quarterback Gardner Minshew found wide receiver Keelan Cole for a six-yard touchdown pass. That play in particular was something Adams addressed emotionally

The Jets defense struggled against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, giving up 278 yards passing and another 111 yards rushing.

Star safety Jamal Adams led the team with six total tackles (five solo) and had one pass defended in the 29-15 loss. Despite his performance, Adams took full blame after the game.

"But at the end of the day, man I'm strong enough, man you can put it on me," Adams said. "I'm not going to run from anybody, I never have, never will. But at the end of the day man, we gotta keep our faith. I think that's the main thing to lean on right now, it's the faith. And I'm not even talking about the faith in the locker room, I'm talking about the man upstairs. When you go through tough times you gotta lean on him."

The Jets defense will have to find a way to stop running back Leonard Fournette and the Jacksonville Jaguars in their Week 8 matchup.

The Jets very much held on for their first win of the 2019 season, a 24-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys. It took a game-sealing blitz on the Cowboys' late two-point conversion attempt to take the win. 

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott sent a pass intended for tight end Jason Witten into the ground as the Jets weren't playing chess, they were playing math. Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams dialed up an all-out blitz and there were plenty more defenders than blockers. 

The decision worked as safety Jamal Adams went in on Prescott unblocked and forced the incompletion.

Jets' safety Jamal Adams was not very happy last month after being fined $21,056 for a hit on Browns QB Baker Mayfield in their Week 2 matchup.

But there's no need for Adams to be upset anymore, as the NFL announced that he will not be fined for that hit. Appeals officer Derrick Brooks agreed with Adams, and rescinded the fine.

Adams was issued a roughing the passer penalty on Baker Mayfield, but said officials that threw the flag apologized to the Jets' coaching staff for making the call after the game.
