Security Jamal Adams takes an active approach to his request to the New York Jets to involve more "big-time players".
Adams told the New York Post from the radio table at the Super Bowl in Atlanta that he met Le & # 39; Veon Bell's agent, Adisa Bakari, last week when he was in Orlando, Florida, to Pro Bowl. The Pittsburgh Steelers will be returning, who last season was in a contract dispute, will be one of the most sought-after free agents available next month. He has been the franchise marked the last two seasons, but a third such brand is unlikely.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes forged 156 yards and a touchdown, and Jets security Jamal Adams had a sack, a pass breakup and a tapping to win their respective Pro Bowl MVP prizes.
Jamal Adams owed the New York Jets 4-12 season on lack of talent, not coaching, essentially challenging general manager Mike Maccagnan to upgrade roster in the offseason.
Adams & # 39; s agent, Kevin Conner, later traveled to the newspaper to clarify that the meeting was a "relaxed lunch" and said he was also present. Conner and Bakari are friends.
"I tell you this: We hope we can get hold of him," he told the newspaper and added that he reached Bell but did not hear back.
"Man, he still hasn't hit me back. I'm a little frustrated at him," Adams said funny to the post. "Nah, I'm not. I'm not frustrated at all."
Adams, named Pro Bowl's Defensive MVP in the AFC's 26-7 victory over the NFC, also said he met with other players to join the Jets on the Pro Bowl, but would not publish their names.
"I have definitely started [recruiting] with a few guys," said Adam's newspaper. "I sat down with a few guys at Pro Bowl. Hopefully we can get them there."
He said the players he spoke to "understand that we are just missing a few."
Jets, who hired coach Adam Gase after firing Todd Bowles after the season, is expected to have $ 93,837,909 in payroom, only to the Indianapolis Colts, according to OverTheCap.com.
After Jets' 38-3 loss to New England Patriots to complete a 4-12 season, Adams Jets said "needs more players and we need more dogs, simple as that" and pointed to the Los Angeles Rams, Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints, who succeeded in adding "big-time players."
