The Dallas Cowboys have been linked to New York Jets star for some time. According to this NFL Insider, this will not happen.
Earlier in the offseason, according to Mike Fisher of CowboysSI.com, the franchise is a contender to make a trade for the New York Jets star safety.
“If the #Cowboys sense that Jamal Adams & #Jets can’t agree on a long-term deal, Dallas will circle back with a high-pick offer.”
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, those rumors are confirmed.
“The Jets entertained offers for All-Pro safety Jamal Adams at last year’s trade deadline; might be a name to monitor again during draft week.”
However, according to NFL Insider Josina Anderson, the Cowboys interest in Adams has not taken on any form and are just rumors.
“Also, many of you have reached out about this prospect of #Jets S Jamal Adams finding a way to the #Cowboys. A source close to the situation tells me right now it’s all just rumors and there has not been any talks on that front.”
According to Schefter, Adams will not be participating in OTAs.
“When the NFL’s voluntary virtual off-season program opens this month, Jets’ All-Pro safety Jamal Adams is not expected to participate, per league sources. The Jets have not expressed any official interest in extending Adams thus far in the off-season, per source.”
The Cowboys have already gone down this path. During the regular season, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said that compensation in a trade for Adams would have been “massive.”
He was not wrong.
The Cowboys were reportedly engaged in trade talks with the Jets for the standout, third year safety. Rapoport tweeted that the “Jets were open to dealing several of their big-name players.”
Instead, the Cowboys did not want to pay the price for Adams and no deal was done. According to sources, the Cowboys were willing to part with a first round pick, but did not want to give additional assets. Some of those names included Zack Martin and Tyron Smith.
