New Orleans Saints: 3 early-offseason trade targets to look at
Number Two: Jamal Adams
New York Jets safety Jamal Adams has shown his frustrations playing in New York.
The former LSU Tiger aired out his frustrations with the Jets organization in October of 2019 when his name circulated heavily in trade talks. The 2019 First Team All-Pro racked up 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and one interception this past season.
With multiple players in the Saints secondary slated to become free agents either this year or next year, bringing in Adams would add a playmaking safety that the Saints could feel more comfortable extending rather than taking a risk on other sub-par players.
There have been recent reports that Adams and the New York Jets have begun talks of a contract extension, but it’s never a certain thing when talking about the Jets. Jamal Adams only has one year left on his current contract, meaning the Saints might be able to get a reasonable deal on him.
Despite Jamal Adams being considered one of the best safeties in the league, years remaining on a player’s contract will almost always be more important. Adding a two-time pro bowler to the Saints secondary would turn an above average defense into one of the league’s best.
