Source: Eagles Among Teams Jamal Adams Would Approve Trade
Would Howie Roseman be willing to call his old friend Joe Douglass to inquire about All-Pro safety Jamal Adams?
Today Adams “informed the team he wants to be traded.”
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Adams would welcome a trade to seven teams, with the Eagles being one of the teams on that list.
Adams is only 24 and one of the premier safeties in the game, 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks an interception, two passes broken up and two forced fumbles.
In theory, adding a player like Adams would help soften the loss of Malcolm Jenkins and bolster the Eagles secondary. However, cost would be a big issue, as any deal would likely start with a first-round pick going to the Jets and a considerable amount of money, as he wants to be locked in long-term before the 2020 season begins.
He is set to make $735,000 this season.
One issue, the Jets don't want to move him and haven't granted him permission to seek a deal per jets beat reporter Rich Cimini.
