So how does Jamal Adams’ position coach feel about the safety’s desire to be traded.
“I really didn’t have a reaction to it,” Dennard Wilson said recently. “That’s not my business. I’m not at the table to talk about contracts or who wants to be traded or anything like that. That’s not my responsibility. The way I look at it, Jamal is still on on the team and I’m looking forward to seeing him.”
Adams, who held out of the team’s virtual off-season program, wants to be traded. If the player is forced to stay with the Jets, what will his mindset be? Will he be fully committed?
“From my perspective, I’ve coached his young man since he came into the National Football League, and the relationship I have with him, his preparation, he will be unfazed,” Wilson said.
So he won’t be distracted by the fact that he doesn’t want to be on the team?
“I’m not worried about him having distractions,” Wilson said. “Jamal loves football and when he gets on the grass is ready to play, he is going to do everything in his power to be at the best of his ability. So from my standpoint, being the guy who coached him since he’s been in the league, I don’t worry about it. When Jamal shows up, he will be fully prepared. He will do his job to the best of his ability.”
