As we move down the stretch of the NFL season, multiple teams are fighting for playoff spots while others are preparing for draft positioning. Several teams have already let their plans for next season be known, albeit through third-party sources. This includes the New York Jets.
It was widely reported that the Jets were one of a handful of teams that attempted to acquire the Las Vegas Raiders receiver Davante Adams just prior to the trade deadline in November. Soon after this revelation, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the Jets will pursue Adams again, this time in the offseason. Given the relationship between Adams and quarterback Aaron Rodgers, this makes perfect sense.
Last year from the Senior Bowl, I reported that Adams was trying to recruit Rodgers to the Raiders. Sure enough, 24 hours after my report, Adams tweeted out much the same and implied he was working to bring his former quarterback to Las Vegas. I’m told the roles have been reversed and Rodgers is hoping, if not covertly working, to have Adams in a Jets uniform in 2024.
