The Jets are reportedly less than thrilled with Adams’ antics, with Cimini saying the team is “not happy with his behavior”, but it should also come as no surprise that despite the theatrics and expected price tag, the Jets should have little trouble moving Adams if they decide to do so. “Know this: Teams already are showing interest” according to Cimini.
NFL insider Adam Schefter also chimed in with a leaked list of teams Adams would like to play for.
