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.
"Nobody's surprised by that I don't think," Adam Gase said on Adams being voted MVP by his teammates. "He's been our, not only probably our best player, but most consistent guy. He's played at an extremely high level the entire year, there's just no drop-off. That's what makes him a great player, just being the same guy every day."
In 13 games played so far this year, Adams leads the Jets in total tackles (72), solo tackles (58), tackles for a loss (10), QB hits (13) and forced fumbles (two), while also sitting at second in sacks with 6.5.
Despite trade rumors swirling around the star midway through the season, the Jets kept Adams in New York.
The defensive captain looks more and more like a cornerstone piece for the franchise to build around.
