With team's 2020 NFL Draft complete, Jets GM Joe Douglas' stance on Jamal Adams hasn't changed


Jets GM Joe Douglas wrapped up his first draft with the team a bit earlier than most other NFL teams.

Without a seventh-round pick, Douglas spoke to reporters via a conference call following the Jets' trading a sixth-round pick for Colts CB Quincy Wilson, the final move of their draft. And while most of the questions were about the draft picks, Douglas was also asked about whether or not he fielded trade calls centering on safety Jamal Adams

While Douglas said he wouldn't go into details about whether or not teams called about the 24-year-old star safety, he did say that nothing has changed in the way he feels about Adams.


"I'm not going to get into any discussions that we had. My stance on Jamal hasn't changed," said Douglas. "At some point, we're going to get with him and his representatives. I think right now, the very next thing is wrapping up this undrafted free agent process."

Adams has been looking for a new deal throughout the offseason, despite the fact that his contract will likely run through 2021 once the Jets exercise his fifth-year option.

Douglas has emphasized before that his goal is to make Adams a "Jet for life," and while that still is likely the case, it just doesn't appear to be the team's top priority at the time.
