Jamal Adams trade is set to pay off handsomely for Jets

Asia's Tech News Daily

The smiles on the faces of the players and coaches after Sunday’s win over the Texans revealed the reality for the New York Jets: they needed this win, badly.

No, it wasn’t pretty. And it came over a Texans team that has been in many ways the worst in the NFL this season, so it doesn’t mean that all the Jets’ issues are fixed. But in the locker room that was reeling a week earlier after throwing away a winnable game against the Dolphins, this provided a much-needed reward for the work they’ve been stacking week after week and was evidence that they are indeed making progress in learning how to win games.

For the fans, however, it probably felt a bit different.

At 3-8 the Jets aren’t in playoff contention and it’s only a matter of time until they lose another game to guarantee their 10th losing season out of the past 11. Jets fans know that every win at this point just hurts their standing in the upcoming draft.

That’s why Jets fans were understandably quite miffed last year when their team came out of nowhere to beat the Rams, dooming their chances to get the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

But this year is different and Jets fans have an (extremely!) unlikely person to thank for that: Jamal Adams.

NFL POWER RANKINGS:Packers return to No. 1 spot, Patriots top AFC field

Jamal Adams trade is set to pay off handsomely for Jets

The former Jets star safety forced his way out of town 16 months ago in ugly fashion, demanding a trade and then behaving terribly to force the Jets’ hand. General manager Joe Douglas obliged, shipping Adams to Seattle for two first-round picks.

The first one of those picks came late in the first round of the 2020 draft, as expected. But this year’s first-round pick will not be coming late in the first round because something completely unforeseen — and wonderful for Jets fans — has happened: the Seahawks, somehow, are just as bad as the Jets.

When the Seahawks lost to Washington on Monday night, they fell to 3-8, the same record as the Jets. And according to Tankathon, if the NFL draft were held today, the Jets would be picking fourth and fifth. And, remarkably, the Seahawks pick would be the better of the two, because they have an easier strength of schedule for the Jets.

That should be satisfying enough for Jets fans, who lost out having a potential superstar in Adams but also no longer have to worry about the headache that he was becoming or having to watch their team use valuable cap space to make him the highest-paid safety in the league.

But it’s even sweeter for Jets fans because Adams, who got that contract from the Seahawks, hasn’t been able to play up to expectations in Seattle this year.

Sure, maybe it’s a little petty to take satisfaction in the fact that Adams is a huge liability in coverage, hasn’t looked like a player who is worth the money he’s getting paid, and now finds himself in another losing situation after fighting so hard to get himself away from the Jets because of their losing ways. But everything Adams did on his way out of town was over-the-top petty. So it’s OK, Jets’ fans, to sit back and enjoy this.

Even if the Seahawks somehow get back on track and pick up a few wins to end the season, they’re going to be sending a much higher pick than anyone could have expected to Florham Park. And that gives Jets fans a great gift for the final six games of the season: you can root for your team to win without worrying about it destroying the outlook for the upcoming draft.

And they have Adams, in large part, to thank for that gift.
