If the Dallas Cowboys "sense" that the Jets and Jamal Adams are having trouble coming to terms on a long-term extension, they will "circle back with a high pick offer," reports Mike Fisher 105.3 FM in Dallas.

Adams' future with the Jets first came into question just before last season's trade deadline, when reports surfaced that the Jets and Cowboys had engaged in trade conversations -- with Adams saying at the time that he would welcome a trade to his hometown team.

According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, the Jets took calls from several teams on Adams in advance of the deadline and appeared to come "fairly close" to trading him to the Cowboys.

Now that the first major wave of NFL free agency has come and gone, Jets general manager Joe Douglas took some time on Wednesday to update where the team stands at this point of the offseason.

While Douglas touched on major topics such as the team's level of interest in free-agent pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney and where things stand with building around quarterback Sam Darnold, he also spoke on a number of other items, including the team's recent additions on both sides of the ball, preparing for the 2020 NFL Draft from home, and where things stand with a possible Jamal Adams extension.

Here are six key takeaways from Douglas' call:

The Jets and defensive back Marqui Christian reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year deal last Saturday, but it now seems like the deal will not be finalized.

Per Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets and Christian could not agree to final contract terms, and the team is now moving on.

Christian, originally a fifth-round pick of Arizona in 2016, had reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million deal with Gang Green shortly after the team officially parted ways with Darryl Roberts.

The recent offensive line additions made by the Jets have earned the most attention, and with good reason. Four of the six new additions so far are offensive linemen, as were the recipients of all four of the multi-year deals given out to new or re-signed players.

However, the Jets also brought in two defensive backs on one-year deals. Former Rams safety Marqui Christian and former Colts cornerback Pierre Desir should bring an injection of talent into the secondary. Let's consider how these two players could fit into Gregg Williams' defense.

Through the first wave of free agency, Joe Douglas and the Jets have taken time to improve the team's offensive line -- their No. 1 offseason priority -- while also bringing back a number of their own players who had hit the open market.

With moving pieces now falling into place, here's a look at how the Jets' depth chart may be looking right now (or at least our best guess), though there's still work to be done ...


QUARTERBACK: Sam Darnold, Mike White

This offseason, much has been made about the Giants' backup quarterback situation, but the Jets could also use a veteran signal-caller behind Darnold. Trevor Siemian and David Fales, both of whom saw playing time with Darnold dealing with mono last season, are both free agents, and the Jets must add to the QB depth chart.

White is a former fifth-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys, but he doesn't have the experience many teams look for at the backup spot.

The Jets shuffled up their secondary a bit on Saturday afternoon. 

The team announced that defensive back Darryl Roberts had been released, and almost immediately after, the Jets signed fellow defensive back Marqui Christian

Per SNY's Ralph Vacciano, Christian's deal is a one-year contract worth $1.25 million.

It has been nine months since the Jets hired Joe Douglas as their general manager, but he's yet to have a chance to really leave his mark on the team.

On Monday, that will finally begin to change.

While we've looked in detail at potential free agent targets for the Jets, they may also be looking at opportunities within the trade market. 

Let's take the Jets at their word and assume that trading Le'Veon Bell or Jamal Adams away isn't in their plans despite earlier rumors. We can also safely rule out them trading up in the draft. However, let's consider some more realistic potential trade targets they could consider making a move for:

OT Trent Williams

It's not every day that a seven-time Pro Bowler hits the market, so it must be tempting for the Jets to look into making a move for Williams. Acquiring the 31-year old would address arguably their biggest need by giving them elite protection for Sam Darnold. Williams has given up just one sack since 2016.

Jamal Adams has made himself clear about how he wants to spend the rest of his NFL career with the Jets, and general manager Joe Douglas expressed mutual feelings between the team and the two-time Pro Bowl safety Tuesday at the 2020 NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.

In light of Douglas' claim that Adams as "a Jet for life" is New York's plan, the 2017 draft's No. 6 overall pick was asked about how he felt about his general manager's comments Sunday.

While appearing on the combine's NFL Network broadcast for the defensive backs workout as a guest field reporter with former cornerback and current analyst Deion Sanders, Adams expressed optimism.

Jamal Adams understands that the Jets' potential moves in free agency are well above his paygrade, but the two-time Pro Bowl safety knows whom to pursue if he were general manager Joe Douglas.

As a field reporter Sunday during the 2020 NFL scouting combine's defensive backs workout at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Adams was candid when asked by NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah about the looming free agents he would want on his team.

Adams had three immediate preferences in mind, and the trio shared the common trait of pass-rushing -- Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadevon Clowney, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue and Los Angeles Rams outside linebacker Dante Fowler.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Joe Douglas said the magic words on Tuesday, that he wants Jamal Adams to be "a Jet for life." It's exactly what the 24-year-old Adams wanted to hear, especially if that means a lucrative, mega-contract is in the works.

And it probably is -- eventually. Douglas, the Jets GM, conceded he's had "some preliminary talks" with Adams' agent. And Adams has previously said he expects to sign a contract extension with the Jets this offseason.

Despite being at the NFL Combine and getting to look at a bunch of young talent, Jets GM Joe Douglas still feels the biggest needs for the team will come in free agency.

"Obviously, 21 UFAs, three RFAs, we have quite a few," Douglas said to SNY's Jeane Coakley on Tuesday in Indianapolis. "So this is an important week for us to get with not only those 21 guys and three RFAs and their representatives, but also others and just see what it's going to look like, so we have a lot of holes to fill moving forward."

Douglas said during his press conference at the combine that he wanted to make All-Pro safety Jamal Adams a "Jets for life," and he reiterated that sentiment later in the day with Coakley.

Jets GM Joe Douglas spoke Tuesday about the futures of Jamal Adams and Le'Veon Bell, being hopeful for Quincy Enunwa, pending free agent Robby Anderson and more at the NFL Combine.

Here are the takeaways...

Douglas wants Adams to be 'a Jet for life'

"We're excited about Jamal. The plan is for Jamal to be a Jet for life. We've had some preliminary talks with his agent -- not gonna get into the specifics of that. But again, the plan is for Jamal to be here a long time."

The Jets have added some secondary help, signing a former local product in safety Anthony Cioffi, the team announced on Thursday. 

The Springfield, NJ native was a four-year standout at Rutgers where he totaled 169 tackles, eight interceptions and 13 passes defended over 41 games. 

After graduating in 2016, Cioffi spent time in training camp with the Raiders in 2017. However, he would move on to the CFL, where he has been since 2018. He had a breakout year with the Ottawa Redblacks, tallying 61 defensive tackles, two interceptions, two sacks and one forced fumble over 18 games. 

The Jets don't need safety help with Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye manning those positions. However, with the injuries the secondary as a whole endured last season, depth from a versatile player like Cioffi who can roam around is valuable.

Before they entered the league as top-10 picks in the 2017 NFL draft at sixth and 10th, respectively, Jets safety Jamal Adams and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes first crossed paths while playing Texas high school football.

So when Kansas City won 31-20 over the San Francisco 49ers for Super Bowl LIV at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, Adams took to Twitter and congratulated Mahomes with an angle on the past.

Separated by an approximate two-hour car drive roughly 130 miles or so apart with Adams at Carrollton (Texas) Hebron and Mahomes in Whitehouse High School, Adams and Mahomes came up along similar paths, which gave the Jets safety a glimpse into what the Chiefs quarterback was capable of.

Three months after the Jets seriously considered trading Jamal Adams and angered him along the way, it looks like the two sides have rebuilt the bridge between them. A new contract could even be coming soon.

The 24-year old Adams said as much on Wednesday when speaking to reporters in Miami, site of Super Bowl LIV. He said his agent and the Jets have had preliminary discussions and added, "I'd be lying if I said I don't expect to be extended." He did say, though, that the talks have included "no numbers yet," though they've surely discussed some parameters.

The numbers, of course, are everything if the Jets and Adams are going to strike a deal.

While appearing on Radio Row down in Miami for the Super Bowl, Jets S Jamal Adams revealed that contract extension talks have begun with New York. 

"They've talked about it. No numbers yet," Adams said, via Newsday's Al Iannazzone. "I'd be lying if I said I don't expect to be extended. I do. Not for what I've just done on the field but even off the field for what I've done for the organization. I've done everything they've asked me to do. I've done it at a high level each and every year."

Adams clarified on Twitter, saying the talks are preliminary, but "I fully expect to be extended this offseason."

During Pro Bowl practice on Saturday, some players around the league were asked their thoughts on Jets safety Jamal Adams.

Their answers? All praise for the LSU product.

"If I had the control to pick one player that I could play with again, it would be him," Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White said to Ethan Greenberg. "Just the energy he brings to the field, the way that he plays the game, you have no choice but to respect it. He plays the game the way you it to be played. He plays hard. He's going to give you his best effort each and every snap, each and every practice. He's probably one of my favorite teammates ever. We still talk to this day, often we text back and forth during the season. We got a real brotherhood, he's one of my favorite people."

Dez Bryant last played an NFL game in 2017 as a member of the Cowboys, before Dallas cut him prior to the 2018 season. The wide receiver signed with Saints in November of 2018, but tore his Achilles tendon in just his second practice with the team.

But he's still holding out hope that he can latch on to an NFL team in 2020, and he's got at least one big fan in Jets safety Jamal Adams.

Bryant tweeted on Monday that he'd love to return to return to the Cowboys and serve in a role similar to the one Jason Witten did with Dallas this season.

The Jets appear to have an opening on their coaching staff, where they see a defensive position coach depart for a job elsewhere in the league.

Assistant defensive backs coach Steve Jackson is leaving New York to become the Cincinnati Bengals' cornerbacks coach, according to a Sunday evening report from Brian Costello of the New York Post.

The 50-year-old Jackson spent the past two years with the Jets, coming over to New York after serving as the Tennessee Titans' safeties coach from 2016-17.

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.

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."

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."

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.

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."

Le'Veon Bell's status for Sunday against the Miami Dolphins has officially been downgraded to out by the team.

Bell, who was initially listed as questionable on Friday, missed two days of practice with an illness, and now will not suit up against Miami.

On Friday, Gase would not specify the kind of illness Bell is dealing with, and would only say that everyone recovers at a different pace.

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 head coach Adam Gase said running back Le'Veon Bell will not practice on Thursday due to an illness, but it doesn't seem to be something going around the team.

"Yeah they haven't said that to me yet," Gase said. "I feel like each guy it's been something different. It hasn't been the same thing, it hasn't been like the flu or anything."

In addition to Bell missing practice, safety Jamal Adams remains out as he continues to recover from a sprained left ankle.

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:
