The New York Jets want to get a contract extension with superstar safety Jamal Adams done as soon as possible, but negotiations seem to have hit a bit of a snag, which has once again spurred trade rumors around the former LSU star and No. 6 overall pick.

If the Jets actually decide to flip Adams for picks, one team that would be ready to scoop up the Pro Bowler is the Philadelphia Eagles, who are still in need of some secondary reinforcements after not using a high draft pick on a defensive back and letting Malcolm Jenkins go.

Adams won't come cheap for the Eagles, though, with the rumored going rate being a first- and third-round pick. But general manager Howie Roseman is a master drafter, so perhaps he'd be able to recover from the loss of such high selections in exchange for a game-breaking defensive stud.

The Jets have holes at wide receiver and cornerback they need to fix, and they could do so with these picks. The Eagles, meanwhile, get to upgrade from Jalen Mills to arguably the best safety in the league. How many defensive backs can pile up 6.5 sacks and 75 tackles while missing two games?

If the Jets are going to actually give away their superstar as contract talks continue to lag, Philly seems like a logical landing spot.
