The New York Jets relationship with safety Jamal Adams might soon be coming to a close. Adams is fed up and has requested a trade, according to beat writer Rich Cimini.

The All-Pro safety has been the subject of trade rumors much of the offseason. Last month, the Jets claimed they had no intention of dealing Adams. Charles Robinson reported around that time Adams wanted a trade if he could not get an extension. Adams is playing on the fifth year option of his rookie contract, which pays $9.86 million for the season. He could become a free agent next year or the Jets could elect to use their franchise tag on him.

Since entering the NFL in 2017, Adams ranks first among defensive backs in sacks, QB hits, and most tackles for a loss, per CBS. There have been rumors connecting Adams with the Dallas Cowboys, but there was no traction as of Memorial Day weekend.
