In the end, the Jets and Jamal Adams went past the point of no return...
The Jets and Seahawks have agreed to a trade to send safety Jamal Adams to Seattle, per source. #nyj— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) July 25, 2020
Seattle had been coming hard after Adams over the last week, but the Jets weren't prepared to trade him. That obviously changed this week when Adams went public with some quotes bashing the organization.
Adams got what he wanted and goes to a contender, while the Jets appear to be cashing in before their most valauble asset further tanks his value by continuing to prove that his "leader" reputation - which we understand multiple top players felt was a complete act - was not all it was cut out to be.
As to what this means in the long-term about the organizations faith in Joe Douglas and Adam Gase and their future ability to obtain and retain talent, we'll have to wait and see. Ultimately, this probably puts a dent in any hopes the Jets had of competing for the postseason in 2020.
Here's the detail of the compensation:
The trade: Jets send Jamal Adams and 2022 4th round pick to Seattle.— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) July 25, 2020
Jets get 2021 1st round pick, 2022 1st round pick, 2021 3rd round pick, safety Bradley McDougald. #nyj
McDougald will presumably step into the starting safety role having been Seattle's starter the past few years. While the compensation looks good, bear in mind that they'll be late picks and in terms of the value chart the value obtained, not including McDougald himself works out at about the 17th overall pick.
More to follow as we get it...
