The Jets have been watching and monitoring Adams since they landed Rodgers this yr. New York’s most up-to-date effort to accumulate Adams got here final month, because the Jets had been ready for the correct second to succeed in out to the Raiders concerning the three-time All-Professional broad receiver.
However the Raiders, lower than a day faraway from a loss to the Detroit Lions on “Monday Evening Soccer” and simply hours earlier than firing coach Josh McDaniels and normal supervisor Dave Ziegler, advised the Jets earlier than the Oct. 31 deadline that they weren’t serious about buying and selling Adams. One other supply advised ESPN earlier than the deadline that there “was no probability in hell” that Las Vegas would commerce the six-time Professional Bowler.
Adams, 30, has 57 catches for 659 yards and three touchdowns this season, his second with the Raiders.
The Jets (4-5) enter Sunday’s street sport towards the AFC East rival Bills ranked twenty ninth in complete offensive yards per sport and have averaged simply 16 factors per sport, the third lowest within the NFL.
