Adams raised more eyebrows Tuesday morning when he removed mention of the Jets from his Twitter profile. His old profile used to read “defensive back for the New York Jets.” That has been replaced with a religious quote.

While the NFL has seen a couple frustrated players call for trades, it doesn’t sound like Adams will take that same path. Adams made it clear he believes he can win with the Jets.

Benching a star player is always going to be controversial, but the decision was even more puzzling with Adams. With the Jets trailing 23-3 on Monday, Adams was still playing hard.

Since coming into the league in 2017, Adams has developed into one of the premier safeties in football. He’s under contract with the Jets for at least one more season.
