NFL Rumors: Jets Could Look to Trade Le'Veon Bell, Jamal Adams in Offseason
The New York Jets will reportedly head into the 2020 NFL offseason open to trading both running back Le'Veon Bell and safety Jamal Adams.
Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reported Sunday the Jets will be "more receptive" to Bell offers than they were at the 2019 trade deadline, while the Dallas Cowboys are expected to make another push for Adams after they made a "hot pursuit" before the deadline but couldn't get a deal done.
Bell has rushed for 589 yards on 183 carries to put him on pace for a career-low 3.2 yards per attempt. He's added 55 receptions for 403 yards with just four total touchdowns in 12 games.
Meanwhile, Adams won't match his 115 total tackles from last season, but he's remained a key cog for the Jets defense in 2019. He's tallied 64 tackles, 6.5 sacks, six passes defended, two forced fumbles and an interception he returned for a touchdown.
Finding interested suitors for him should be a lot easier than with Bell since he's under contract for two more years as part of his rookie contract, including a team-favorable $7.1 million cap hit in 2020.
If New York does move the safety, the Cowboys would be the favorite given their need at the position and the likely pressure to upgrade the roster following an underwhelming season. (TimDaniels)
