Adams was selected with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2017 draft by New York, and his rookie contract doesn't expire until the end of the 2021 season. The former LSU star is widely considered one of the best defenders in the league, but his currently salary isn't even in the top 10 for the position. It's insane for the Jets might lose him for not paying him what he's worth, but assuming the two sides can't come to an agreement soon, here's where Adams will want to be traded:
While the Jets front office must be having a meltdown over Adams's trade request, the teams he listed are probably throwing a party. Just imagine Adams filling the spot left by Malcolm Jenkins in the Philadelphia or making the Baltimore Ravens defense absolutely unstoppable. Who wouldn't love to see Adams go to a contender? Fans are likely sick of watching him play for the losing Jets.
The Cowboys desperately need a strong safety, but with Dak Prescott's contract drama still causing problems, they might not have the cap space to give Adams what he wants. The Houston Texans also need a playmaker at the position and they have a decent amount of cap space left, but they have some key players, such as Deshaun Watson, to pay within the next year or so.
Any of the teams Adams is interested in would be a big upgrade from the Jets, and he'll be an instant impact player no matter where he ends up. These seven teams have a huge opportunity here, so stay tuned for any developing trade talks.
