Jets general manager Joe Douglas previously said he wouldn't hang up if and when trade calls come in on either running back Le'Veon Bell or safety Jamal Adams.

Speculation has surrounded both players since early in the 2019 season. 

Listening to trade calls still be true, but the GM changed his tune a bit on Monday. Douglas praised both Adams and Bell instead of discussing those potential calls.

Jets safety Jamal Adams has been named an AP first-team All-Pro, it was announced Friday.

Adams, who was named a second-team All-Pro last season, was named to his second straight pro bowl earlier this season.

The star out of LSU has been the anchor of the Jets' defense over the last few seasons and was at the top of nearly every key defensive statistic for Gang Green this year.

With safety Jamal Adams eligible to renegotiate his rookie contract, the Jets and general manager Joe Douglas have a decision on their hands.

Upon the completion of Year 3 in the NFL, Adams enters 2020 with one year left on the four-year, $22 million deal he signed as the 2017 draft's sixth overall pick.

Speaking at Tuesday's end-of-year press conference as the offseason begins, Douglas acknowledged that the Jets will go over Adams' situation later in the week.

Jets safety Jamal Adams was in the giving mood this holiday season. 

While it was a sober Monday mood on locker cleanout day, Jets players had at least one reason to smile.

Adams, the Jets' star defensive standout, gifted some Jordan shoes to each and every one of his teammates.

The Jets will be without two offensive linemen on Sunday against the Bills and could be without a number of other players with eight listed as questionable.

Tom Compton (calf) and Alex Lewis (ankle) were listed as out for Sunday's AFC East matchup on the Jets injury report on Friday afternoon.

Joining the offensive line duo on the report as questionable to suit up Sunday were Jamal Adams (ankle), Henry Anderson (knee/shoulder), Robby Anderson (calf), Kelvin Beachum (back/ankles), Kenneth Dixon (illness), Steve McLendon (knee/hip), Brian Poole (ankle) and Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee).

For the second straight season, Jamal Adams has been voted the Curtis Martin team MVP by his fellow Jets teammates.

The safety is the first player to win the award in consecutive seasons since... Curtis Martin, who won the award from 1999-2001. Adams also becomes the fourth player in franchise history to win the award in consecutive seasons.

Adams has had another fantastic season for the Jets and it's showed, with the third-year man out of LSU being named to his second straight Pro Bowl last week.

After the Jets had Wednesday off, they returned to action Thursday in Florham Park, New Jersey, for practice ahead of their 2019 season finale Sunday at the Buffalo Bills.

As the Jets (6-9) get back into action for the 1 p.m. kickoff against the Bills (10-5) at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York, head coach Adam Gase set the scene prior to Thursday's practice.

From a key injury update to a Week 17 preview and a big-picture outlook for the Jets as a whole, below is a handful of takeaways following Gase's morning press conference.

The Jets listed 12 players on Wednesday's injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, many of which did not surprise.

One noteworthy entry, though, was Robby Anderson.

New York's big-play receiver was estimated -- the team did not practice on Christmas Day -- as limited with a calf injury.

In a somewhat surprising move, Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced that a "majority" of the starters will suit up Week 17 against the Jets.

This is an interesting decision by McDermott to stay the least, considering the Bills have already clinched their playoff berth and are all set at the No. 5 seed, as well.

"We talked to the team and we're going to play a majority of the guys and they're going to practice this week and they're going to play," McDermott said. "To go into detail will take some time, but the majority of guys will play, not all of them. Josh (Allen) will play."

"They're not all going to play the same amount in the game. We're going to be smart with that, but it's important that we get work in fundamentally and in terms of execution and we stay as sharp as can be."

The Jets may enter their matchup with the Steelers shorthanded on both sides of the ball, as the team released their final injury report before Sunday's game.

Demaryius Thomas and offensive lineman Tom Compton are listed as doubtful to play against Pittsburgh, while Jamal Adams, Quinnen Williams, Robby Anderson, Arthur Maulet, Brian Poole and Bilal Powell are questionable.

Thomas and Compton both did not participate in practice on Friday, and Adams and Williams were among a long list of players to practice in a limited role.

Ahead of another matchup with an impressive defense, Adam Gase spoke about how Sam Darnold performed his last time out against the Ravens' stellar defense.

Darnold went 18-for-32 for 218 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against Baltimore during Week 15's edition of Thursday night football, but the Ravens' offense was too much for the Jets to handle as they fell, 42-21.

The second-year quarterback connected with Jamison Crowder for both of his scores on the day, including a pinpoint pass that allowed Crowder to toe-tap in a touchdown on third and goal.

The NFL announced the AFC and NFC Pro Bowl rosters on Tuesday night, and between the Jets and Giants, New York had just one Pro Bowl player: Jets safety Jamal Adams.

The 24-year-old was named to his second Pro Bowl of his three-year NFL career, and Adams was asked about the honor on Wednesday.

"I expect it," said Adams. "That's what I work hard for, obviously. The main thing, obviously, is to be in the playoffs, but it didn't happen. But I'm very grateful to represent New York, represent this organization as a Pro Bowler, so it feels good."

As the Jets turn the page to Week 16 with Sunday's 1 p.m. home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, New York is hopeful for the return of two key players on defense.

After last Thursday's 42-21 road loss to the Baltimore Ravens, head coach Adam Gase provided updates on safety Jamal Adams (ankle) and defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (neck).

The couple was set to headline limited participants in Wednesday's practice, while wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee) and right guard Tom Compton (calf) were held out.

New York Jets safety Jamal Adams continues to be a man of his word, officially being named to the 2020 Pro Bowl on Tuesday. 

The NFL announced the full rosters for the game and Adams was the lone member of the Jets named as a starter. 

Tuesday's announcement comes as no surprise as it was previously reported that Adams was by far the leading vote getter via fan voting earlier this week for his position. He had approximately 88,000 more votes than the next closest player.

The results following the fan vote for the 2020 Pro Bowl have been released, and a Jet has made the cut. 

Safety Jamal Adams is in good position to continue living up to his promise, as he got the most votes for a strong safety in the AFC with 186,068. Steelers S Minkah Fitzpatrick received more votes at free safety for the AFC at 209,245. 

After not making the Pro Bowl in his rookie season, Adams made a vow that he wouldn't miss another one for the rest of his career. He lived up to the promise last season with his first nod, and could do the exact same this year if the other two legs of voting work in his favor.

The Jets, like most of the league this season, had a hard time stopping MVP-favorite Lamar Jackson last night in Baltimore and fell to the Ravens 42-21 on Thursday Night Football.

On Friday, coach Adam Gase spoke to the media over a conference call...

Here are four Takeaways from Gase's conference call

1) A video of Gase and Jets quarterback Sam Darnold arguing with each other on the sideline went viral after the game, especially since Darnold is known for typically being a level-headed guy, but Gase just said that actually the two were both agreeing on the same point.

BALTIMORE - Gregg Williams' defense never had a chance.

Facing the powerful Ravens and the dangerous Lamar Jackson without a bunch of their best players went exactly as expected for the Jets on Sunday night. The Ravens' MVP candidate threw for five touchdowns and ran for 86 yards as the Jets were blown out by the Ravens, 42-21

And what else would anyone expect with the Jets playing with no Jamal Adams, no Quinnen Williams, no Brian Poole, and the usual patchwork cast at linebacker and cornerback. They played hard and were actually much better in the second half, but all that was just way too much to overcome. Jackson, taken 29 spots after the Jets took Sam Darnold in the 2018 draft, was everything he was advertised to be. He completed 15 of 23 passes for 212 yards and averaged nearly 11 yards per rush. When he took off with the ball, either to run or throw, the Jets had no one that could keep up.

That's not really surprising considering that Adams, Poole and Williams are three of the best athletes on the Jets' defense. Had they had a full complement of players, Gregg Williams could have used Adams as a spy. That at least might have slowed Jackson down a little bit and minimized the damage, if nothing else.

With the short week, Jets S Jamal Adams had a slim chance to play against the Ravens on Thursday Night Football, as he continues to rehab his ankle injury. 

The injury report on Wednesday confirmed that. 

Adams highlighted the report as a doubtful player with the Jets heading to Baltimore. He didn't participate in practice all week, and though he may not be completely ruled out, it's safe to say it's a longshot for the Pro Bowl safety to be on the M&T Bank Stadium turf in his pads.

Decimated by injuries all season long, Week 15 is no different for the Jets.

New York released its final injury report of the week Wednesday as it prepares for Thursday's 8:20 p.m. game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Among the updates, Jamal Adams is doubtful, which leaves the third-year safety set to miss his second straight game as he nurses a sprained left ankle from Dec. 1.

When the injury report surfaced on Monday for the Ravens, QB Lamar Jackson was featured with a quad injury. It was a bit of a surprise, but one Jets fans definitely didn't mind seeing, as the possibility of having him sidelined would give New York a greater chance to upset Baltimore on the road.

But Jackson killed that hope real quick on Tuesday.

"I feel great, I feel good. I'm 100 [percent]. I'll be out there Thursday night," Jackson told reporters.

After squeaking out a 21-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Jets head coach Adam Gase had a laundry list of injuries as long as the list of field goals attempted in their recent victory. 

The Jets had Monday off from practice, but had they took the field, Gase said eight players would've missed the session. 

Those include safety Jamal Adams (ankle), defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (stinger), cornerback Brian Poole (concussion), tight end Ryan Griffin (ankle), wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/ knee), running back Bilal Powell (ankle), offensive lineman Chuma Edoga (ankle), and cornerback Arthur Maulet (ankle).

According to SNY's NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano, the Jets may look into trading running back Le'Veon Bell and safety Jamal Adams this offseason.

Bell is in his first season with the team, after signing a four-year, $52.5 million deal with $35 million guaranteed on March 13

"Obviously you know he's out today with his illness. It's the latest blow in what's shaping up as the worst season of his career," Vacchiano said. "But the question now is, will it be his only season with the Jets? Multiple sources around the NFL told me this week that they really do expect that the Jets will make Bell available this offseason."

The Jets secondary could look very thin this weekend when they face the Miami Dolphins, with multiple players in doubt to suit up and CB Brian Poole officially listed as out.

In addition to Poole, things aren't looking to great for S Jamal Adams and CB Arthur Maulet, who are both listed as doubtful to play. Poole (concussion), Adams (ankle) and Maulet (calf) missed all three days of practice this week.

The trio all suffered their injuries at various points of Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Bengals, a game that handed Cincinnati their first win of the season.

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.

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 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.
