The New York Jets angered safety Jamal Adams just like they did with former cornerback Darrelle Revis. On Thursday, Adams reportedly said he's accept a trade to one of seven playoff contenders entering the 2020 season, one of which were the Philadelphia Eagles. The team parted ways with Malcolm Jenkins, so they'd be wise to add another defensive captain in the form of Adams. Luckily for the Eagles, they have plenty of assets to acquire the former 2017 sixth overall pick.

Here are three assets the Eagles can trade to the Jets in exchange for Adams.

3. CB Sidney Jones

The Jets could stand to add some depth at the cornerback position. It's quite clear that finding a stud corner on the open market isn't a feasible option for New York (i.e. Trumaine Johnson). But they can get Sidney Jones in a trade. The former 2017 second-round pick is coming off his best statistical season, where he recorded 23 tackles, eight passes defensed, and two interceptions. The thing is, he couldn't find a spot in the starting lineup last year, and he's sure not going to get that opportunity in 2020 now that the team acquired Darius Slay. Being moved to the Jets could be a blessing for Jones, as he'd be able to show his full potential with starting reps.

2. DE Derek Barnett

Much like corner, the Jets need some help off the edge. The team does have Quinnen Williams and Jordan Jenkins, but they could use reinforcements. Enter Derek Barnett. The former 2017 14th overall pick is coming off the best campaign of his career. In 14 games last season, Barnett recorded 30 total tackles, 22 quarterback hits, 6.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles. If the Eagles want to acquire Adams, they'd have to surrender a young talent like Barnett. Oh, and the Jets could probably get the most out of him under ultra-aggressive defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

1. TE Dallas Goedert

The Jets have their franchise quarterback in Sam Darnold, so it's time for the organization to provide him with some weapons. While Darnold could use some wideouts, he seriously needs a security blanket. Look no further than Dallas Goedert. The Jets have had to rely on an oft-injured Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin to be their top tight ends on the roster. That's not going to cut it. Even with the presence of Zach Ertz in Philly, Goedert proved he can be just as dangerous. In 15 games last season, the former 2018 second-round pick caught 58 passes for 607 yards and five touchdowns. It's hard to envision the Eagles trading away Ertz, even though he's due for a contract extension. By adding Goedert, the Jets could potentially have the next great quarterback-tight end duo.
