Jamal Adams not pleased with early flight time booked to Seattle

The news came out Saturday that one of the best safeties in the NFL - Jamal Adams - was leaving the AFC to come to the NFC West.

We already know Jets general manager Joe Douglas loves Darnold.

Following Adams' trade, it begs the question: who's next? The Jets could have ridden with Adams for 2020 and perhaps 2021 as well, but they decided his most recent public statements were disqualifying.

The Seahawks booked Adams on a 7:00 a.m. flight to Seattle set for Monday morning and the latter voiced his displeasure about the early time on his Twitter account. but promptly deleted said tweet. The Jets will also receive a replacement for Adams in safety Bradley McDougald, while the Jets are also giving up a fourth-round pick in 2022. The unknown, of course, is where the picks will land. They'll have two first-round picks in both drafts.

That doesn't automatically mean the Giants will look to trade Barkley, but if they're no closer to returning to competition, it makes little sense for them to invest big dollars into a running back and it makes less sense for Barkley to waste his prime years.

So, even if Douglas gives Darnold a sizable extension after this season, the Jets will be in good shape from a cap standpoint and have two first-round picks to play with in the 2021 draft - not to mention an extra third-round pick from the Adams trade and an extra fifth-round pick from the Leonard Williams trade. Adams will also add top-notch pass-rush skills as a blitzer (his 6.5 sacks last season were second on the team).

Still, if the Giants get off to a poor start in 2020 and it becomes evident their rebuild is not yet complete, Barkley will become an interest to teams around the league and a potential trade piece for Gettleman & Co.

In the end, Schneider felt he needed to meet Douglas' price and add high-level talent to a defense that was 29th in the league a year ago at 6.0 yards allowed per play.
