The New York Jets have once again started up the Jamal Adams trade rumors, as the team has reportedly hit a snag in negotiations with their transformative defensive back. The Dallas Cowboys, keen to improve a subpar secondary, will likely be among the first teams to engage the Jets on a potential Adams trade.
Former New York Daily News and Dallas Morning News columnist Gary Myers speculated that if the Jets want to trade Adams, a fair return could be a first-round pick and wide receiver Michael Gallup, who will likely see his touches decrease after the selection of CeeDee Lamb in the first round of the draft.
Gallup, a former star at Colorado State, recorded 1,107 yards and six touchdowns while serving as Kellen Moore's primary field stretcher.
While the Cowboys would get arguably the best defensive back in the game in Adams to bolster a rough safeties room, the Jets would receive a potential No. 1 wideout in Gallup, who could pair with rookie Denzel Mims, speed demon Breshad Perriman, and slot expert Jamison Crowder to give Sam Darnold a quality receiving corps for the first time in his career.
Cowboys fans might not like the idea of giving up Gallup, bit it may be the only way to add a vocal leader like Adams that will kick the entire defense up a notch.
