Number One: He’s a top-five safety in the NFL
Love him or hate him, you can’t deny the greatness Jamal Adams has displayed in the rather weak Jets secondary since his arrival to the team as the number six overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Adams has been nothing short of dominant and single-handedly made the Jets defense notable enough to actually gameplan on how to slow him down. Pro Football Focus called him the best blitzing safety in the league.
Adams, 24, is too good of a talent to pass up on if you’re the New Orleans Saints.
Keeping in mind that guys like Drew Brees, Jared Cook, and Malcolm Jenkins don’t have much tread left on the tires, a move like this would keep the team in serious contention for years to come, obviously if an extension can be figured out.
The LSU alum would surely love to come back to the boot, especially with a legitimate Super Bowl contending roster already on board. The price tag might be a bit steep, but the results Adams would deliver would surely be worth the pretty penny.
