The big NFL news this week was the New York Jets trading Jamal Adams to the Seattle Seahawks and this move will have an impact on the Buffalo Bills.
First, criticism came in on their head coach Adam Gase as Adams spoke with Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News about his relationship with his coach.
“At the end of the day, he doesn’t address the team,” Adams added. “If there’s a problem in the locker room, he lets another coach address the team. If we’re playing sh—y and we’re losing, he doesn’t address the entire team as a group at halftime. He’ll walk out of the locker room and let another coach handle it.”
Following his criticism, The Jets announced on Twitter that they traded the Pro Bowler to the Seattle Seahawks for a haul that included Bradley McDougald along with a slew of 2021 draft picks including two first-round picks and a third-round as well.
With Adams now out of the AFC entirely, this presents the Buffalo Bills with an even better opportunity to win the division. Adams has been the best safety in the division aside from Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer.
With him now playing in an entirely different conference, quarterback Josh Allen will be able to take full advantage of deep routes when playing the Jets. Additionally, with Adams recording 75 tackles on the 2019 season, running the ball against their divisions rival will also garner more success which may be the recipe for their first division title in years.
