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."
White and Adams played at LSU for three seasons together from 2014-2016. Both players were selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, as Adams went sixth overall to the Jets and White was taken with the No. 27 pick by the Bills.
White is making his first Pro Bowl appearance, while Adams returns to the Pro Bowl this season for the second-straight year.
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick played against Adams in college while at Alabama, and was happy that he and Adams are teammates for Sunday's game.
"Jamal, he's a great player, he's an enthusiastic guy, high energy," Fitzpatrick said. "I played against him in college and in the NFL, so I know what type of competitor he is. So now it's good to have him on my team, on my sideline."
Seven-time Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas of the Baltimore Ravens can see the passion Adams has for the game.
"The thing that sticks out about Jamal is his passion for the game," Thomas said. "In Texas, we love football, and he's carrying that tradition on. If you get Jamal making plays, man, he's going to have everybody in the jaws. He's really embraced in the game, rhythm, he's flowing with the game, and people going to feed of off that."
Adams will be looking to win his second-straight defensive MVP of the Pro Bowl on Sunday afternoon when the AFC takes on the NFC. The AFC won the 2019 Pro Bowl, beating the NFC 26-7.
