Jets safety Adams re­quests trade

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - SPORTS -

A per­son with di­rect knowl­edge of the sit­u­a­tion says All-Pro safety Ja­mal Adams has re­quested a trade from the New York Jets amid a con­tract dis­pute.

The 24-year-old Adams has been seek­ing a con­tract ex­ten­sion, and the Jets have said they want the safety to re­main a mem­ber of the team his en­tire ca­reer. But, the con­flict ap­par­ently is about the tim­ing: Adams wants the ex­ten­sion now, while the team prefers to wait un­til next year, at the ear­li­est.

The Jets are in no rush to ad­dress Adams’ con­tract be­cause they hold rights to the safety through next sea­son and could also po­ten­tially use the fran­chise tag on him in 2022. But, it ap­pears Adams is now try­ing to force the team’s hand to get the new deal he cov­ets.

“Maybe it’s time to move on!” Adams said in an Instagram post Thurs­day.

Fre­quently sus­pended wide re­ceiver Josh Gor­don has ap­plied to the NFL for re­in­state­ment. Gor­don, 29, has been sus­pended eight times over­all by ei­ther his team or the NFL, in­clud­ing six times since 2013, mostly for vi­o­lat­ing the league’s poli­cies on banned sub­stances.

49ers re­ceiver Deebo Sa­muel un­der­went surgery af­ter break­ing a bone in his left foot dur­ing in­for­mal work­outs with team­mates in Ten­nessee. Sa­muel suf­fered a Jones Frac­ture, which is a break be­tween the base and the mid­dle part of the fifth metatarsal in his foot. The team says it will have a bet­ter idea of Sa­muel’s timetable to re­turn once he ar­rives at train­ing camp next month.
