NY Jets star safety, Jamal Adams, left the NY Giants off his wish list of teams he’d like to be traded it to.
It appears as though Jamal Adams only likes terrorizing Daniel Jones and the NY Giants and has no interest in joining them, as even though he issued a stern trade demand today he left Big Blue off the list of teams he’d like to play for.
Now, it’s important to recognize that all of the 7-team contingent he listed were playoff teams in 2019, except for the Cowboys. However, Dallas is considered a contender, he grew up in Texas, has an affinity for Jerry Jones and the organization, and was almost dealt there last year.
It’s also worth noting that it’s possible Adams examined Big Blue’s safety grouping and realized there was room for him there, anyway.
The NY Giants won’t be looking to play Adams again anytime soon after what he did to them in 2019 (especially Saquon Barkley) – and they won’t have to as they only play once every four years – after he put on a marveling display en route to the lowly Jets embarrassing Big Blue in what I had dubbed ‘The Toilet Bowl’.
That day, Adams racked up 6 tackles and 2 sacks; he also forced his only two fumbles of the season and recovered his only fumble for a touchdown in 2019.
Sigh, maybe the NY Giants would have been on the list if his buddy Davis Webb was still on the team.
Should the NY Giants care?
Absolutely not is the short answer. The NY Giants have arguably one of the most promising young safety groupings in the entire NFL, and really wouldn’t have a spot for Adams, anyway.
If there’s anything to this from a Big Blue perspective, it’s just what could be the perceived embarrassment of being left off a list that’s criteria seemed to be being a contender – the NY Giants are not that, right now, anyway.
It adds a little sting for me that you’d think a team that shares the same stadium with his own and would then become his rival, while also not having to move and uproot his life, isn’t attractive to a young star like Adams.
I’m not going to make a mountain out of a mole here with the mantra that some Big Blue fans beat that star players don’t want to come to the NY Giants because of Dave Gettleman, as I believe Gettleman has little to do with this decision.
I don’t want to make too much of it because there really isn’t much to make of this from a NY Giants perspective, but if you’re looking for one, it’s disappointing a young stud isn’t interested in playing for a once proud, winning franchise that is a Blue Blood of the NFL.
