Cohn is hardly a household name in terms of breaking big news stories so it’s probably best to take this one with a grain of salt. The 49ers are however one of the teams Adams told the Jets he would be willing to go to without needing a new contract. Cohn added, “Should such a deal take place, Adams becomes the foundation of the 49ers secondary for the next five to ten years”.
