Jets All-Pro safety Jamal Adams has become disgruntled with New York’s front office to the point that he has now demanded a trade. Being that the Jets are unwilling to pay him long-term two valuable seasons still left on his rookie contract, Adams is now convinced that a change of scenery is necessary.

Adams has revealed his wish list of teams on Thursday, including the Ravens, Cowboys, Texans, Chiefs, Eagles, 49ers and Seahawks, all playoff contending teams from 2019. On NFL Live on ESPN, analyst and former Steelers Super Bowl champion Ryan Clark revealed straight from the player himself that another surprise team could be in the fold in the Adams sweepstakes.

While Tampa Bay is currently in the process of building up the NFL’s version of a superteam on offense, the defense could use a bit of help. Bringing in Adams to Tampa would reconnect him with former head coach and defensive mastermind, Todd Bowles -- the only question is how the Bucs would clear the necessary cap space for a rich contract extension.

In case anyone was wondering just how Adams ought to be valued, take these numbers into account as an example.

Tampa has made a bunch of splashy acquisitions during the offseason, with Rob Gronkowski emerging from retirement to join TB12. Bringing in their former division rival from the AFC East would allow them all to join forces and terrorize offenses and defenses on a weekly basis.
