New York Jets All-Pro safety Jamal Adams reportedly asked the organization to trade him last week.
And head coach Adam Gase appears to be a major reason why, according to a report Wednesday from New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta.
Here’s an excerpt from Mehta’s report:
The fissure between the Jets and Jamal Adams cracked open, thanks in part to a deteriorating relationship between the All-Pro safety and his head coach.
The Daily News has learned that Adam Gase is a major factor why Adams has felt uncomfortable with his long-term future with the team and requested a trade. The News first reported last week that Adams sought permission to seek a trade after no movement toward a contract extension this offseason.
However, Adams’ discontent runs much deeper than simply finances. The Jets’ best player does not want to play for Gase anymore for myriad reasons, according to sources.
Adams, arguably the league’s best safety, is under contract with the Jets through the 2021 season, after New York picked up his fifth-year option.
