New York Jets running back look Levy on Bell sounded surprised into treat amount among upon hearing the news Saturday that Jamal Adams had been traded to the Seattle Seahawks short shortly after the trade was reported, they'll fired off a shot at Adams on on Twitter.
Although Belgian didn't mention the safety by name in the Sweet, it was clear.
It was a clear reference to how Adam's lobbied for Belts a son last year with the Jets on Lee to leave a year later, people do all the hooting and hollering to get you brought in just to leave law like people weird.
Yo, the Internet got these dudes doing whatever for attention.
They don't even tell you expletive, they don't believe in themselves, Adams responded.
Leader, Saturday, writing noted, See Week 14.
The Seahawks and Jets are scheduled to play each other in Seattle on December 13.
Bellow Bell appeared to take Teoh, take umbrage with Adam's comment and accused the safety of lying to him through, though he also noted he wants the best.
First former teammate noted What low You hide, please trust that is that it is noted then, And if I'm supposed to take see you and Week 14 as a threat, I don't.
But it's still all the love and I like and I like and I, uh uh, I want the best for you and if this is the best for you, I want it for you, bro.
They'll suffered through a disappointing season, but he was well, but he was well compensated.
5 million and will make another 13.
5 million this year, all part of his four year contract from free agency.
So the decision to sign what the Jets wasn't all bad.
Two weeks ago, Bell and Adams had a great talk on the phone as they discussed Adams future with the Jets.
Bell cane Bell came away thinking Adams would remain with the team despite his contract dispute.
I think I think he wants to be with the Jets.
I just think he wants to get paid, Bill said.
On Hot 97 I think he's in the same situation I was three years ago.
He's a young player.
He's been at the top of his game playing at a high level and feels like Dang.
I just wanted to get compensated.
As it turned out, the Jets traded for the Jets, traded Adams for first round picks in the next two drafts, 2021 3rd round pick in safety Bradley McDuck McDonald.
The Seahawks also received a 2022 4th round pick in the Swamp and the fun and we have more Jamal Adams news.
Uh, this one we're going to go inside the treed.
The phone call from the Seattle Seahawks came several weeks ago.
Joe Douglas wasn't surprised everybody in the NFL new star safety Jamal Adams wanted out.
So the New York Jets general manager figured he he would receive multiple enquiries, and he did.
But the Seahawks were the most aggressive suitor.
The two teams maintained a steady flow of communication.
It didn't take long for the Seahawks to sweeten their initial offer, adding there 2022 1st round pick to be proposed to the proposed package.
Two first round picks that that that peaked Douglases interest.
But he didn't jump at the deal.
He waited and waited, still hoping, perhaps naively, that the team would reach a truce with the disgruntled Adams.
No, this Douglas did not want to trade the best player on his team in April, he said in a radio interview that Adams was a big reason he accepted the GM job.
A year ago, he saw Adams as an elite defensive talent and a foundational player.
So how did Doug let's go from love at first sight to splitsville in 13 months? Opportunity as much as he wanted to routine Adams as much as he wanted to retain Adams.
Douglas pivoted about a week ago when he could concluded the Seahawks offer was one he could not ignore.
The framework was in police before Friday, when Adams unloaded on Douglas and Coach Adam Geese in the New York Daily News.
The last obstacle.
The biggest obstacle was an agreement between the NFL and the NFL Players Association on a salary cap plan to combat the revenue shortfall caused by the Corona virus pandemic.
That was a concern for the Seahawks, who likely will give Adams a huge contract extension.
The matter was resolved leap Friday, clearing the way for one of the biggest trades in Jets history.
The scope of the deal raised eyebrows around the around the league.
Believe it or not, it's actually Simmer similar to that of the Khalil Mack book blockbuster deal from 2018 and Mac is a premiere edge rusher.
The safety isn't supposed to affect you as much as a pass rusher, but consider the Jets received 2020 2021 2022 1st round picks, 2021 3rd round pick in safety Brad Mean Bradley McDougald the Jet set a 20 to 2022 4th round pick to Seattle with Adams at the end of the 2018 preseason, the Las Vegas readers recouped a ransom for Mac 29 2019 and 20 21st round picks, a 20 23rd rounder and in 2020 and 2019 6th rounder.
They they had to send second and fifth round picks to the Chicago Bears so he could make the argument that the Jets got more for Adam's than the Raiders got for Mac.
They received a very strong offer, one FC personnel executives said of the Jets.
It'll be tough to replace the talent Adams, but he couldn't ignore the building blocks for the future.
That's why Douglas made the deal in the future.
In 20 the future in 2021 the Jets have 10 draft picks, including five in the 1st 3 rounds.
With four first round picks.
Over the next two drafts, Douglas has enough flexibility to replenish a talent starved roster.
He also has a He also has quarterback insurance.
If Sam Donald doesn't pan out the fan base, just cringe.
He couldn't have the ammunition to trade up for a successor.
Additionally, there's a huge economic component in play.
After projecting what Adams might receive on a long term extension, Jason Fitzgerald of Over the Cap noted the Jets will save about 47 million and cap sarees for one year of McDougald and 12 combined years of draft selections versus six years of atoms and four years of 1/4 round pick.
Douglas had to do the trade for the long term health of the franchise.
Some fans might be stuck skeptical, and that's understandable because they have heard this rap before.
Douglases predecessors have traded away top talent over the years to roll Revis anyone, each time selling the the idea of a brighter tomorrow.
The thing is, those happy.
Tomorrow's never happened because the G M who made those trades stunk get drafting a big reason why the Jets haven't made the playoffs since 2010.
We don't know about Douglas yet because his first draft class still hasn't been on the field.
If he's not any better than his predecessors of picking players, the Adams trade will be remembered as well as one of those same old jets moves.
Adams is unknown player, but the Jets refused to extend him with two years remaining on his rookie contract.
Douglas, who hasn't talked to the media since late April, has yet to address that issue.
If you love him so much, why not pay him? When it became clear to Adams and late spring that a new deal wasn't happening, he began criticizing the organization on social media.
Then came the June night, the June 18 trade with trade request, which didn't which didn't surprise Douglas.
The game plan didn't change.
He he still hoped to find a happy place with Adams.
But what? But what the trade requested was signal to the rest of the league that something was rotten in New Jersey.
Calls started coming in.
Team smelled an opportunity, wanting to know what it would take to pry the All Pro safety from the Jets.
Douglas plated beautifully showing patients as Adam Social Media outburst continued, and training camp, set to start July 28th drew closer.
Eventually, Doug was pulled the trigger on a trade that once didn't seem possible.
What do we have? A new follower, Jimmy and the boys.
Nice name, by the way.
Thanks for the follow.
You want to. Ah, if you want to. Come on.
Click that link that I put in the champ.
We can We can talk some football, if you would, like ****.

Sorry about that, everyone.
I just Ah, I got scared for a bit there. Yep.
There goes all our viewers.
But thank you for the follow Jimmy and the boys.
Uh, now, let's get back to to our to our story.
When he was drafted in 2017 Adams was billed as a culture change, er an Alfa personality who would lead the Jets out of darkness.
Then coach Todd Bowles said, the culture we're trying to create, I think he's perfect for our building.
Would this be as bad as a time to remind folks that the Jets the Jets passed on quarterback Patrick Mahomes to take Adams? As it turns out, Adam's couldn't handle the losing.
Despite a stellar play, the Jets went 16 and 32 Adams became and embittered.
He lashed out at teammates at halftime during an ugly lost last season to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Sources said he wind at the trade lunch at the trade deadline because his name was was floated in talks.
That was the hurt.
That was the turning point.
That's when Adams appeared to lose faith in front.
Off in the front office.
It got to a point where he openly said he was trying to get traded to Dallas to play for his hometown Cowboys.
Only a market set setting contract extension could have sal***ed the marriage, and the Jets didn't want to go there.
Adams wanted out so badly that he would play for the Seahawks under his current contract.
Happily, on Saturday night, he celebrated the trade with a cigar on Instagram Live, behaving in front of his followers like a man who had been freed from a bad relationship Onley.
Five months ago, Douglas proclaimed his plan to make Adams a jet for life.
Life changes quickly around his team and into the treed.
And, uh, yeah, I think that is going to be it, because then it seems we're going to just a just go ahead and go down, be a Jamal Adams path.
