The third reason why this trade makes sense is that Adam Gase, the head coach for the Jets, has handled many of his star players in questionable ways in just the last year.
Gase was very cryptic when he was asked about Le’Veon Bell‘s future in New York, not the expected response when a coach is asked about one of the most talented running backs in the league.
Jamal Adams has also seemingly become disillusioned with the staff in New York as it was revealed that the Jets did not handle several events at the trade deadline in a way that Adams was content with. Adams took this as a slight and the relationship is currently hanging by a thread.
Jamal Adams likely feels disrespected and potentially betrayed by the staff of the Jets and could be looking to move on. Adams’ best options are to move to a team that he can compete with and play for a coach that he can learn under.
Tampa Bay would be a perfect location for Adams to find this combination. Bruce Arians is a far better head coach than Adam Gase and the Buccaneer defense under the leadership of Todd Bowles is trending in the right direction.
The Buccaneers are in a position to compete and are very young meaning that Adams would fit in well from the start and could find a better fit with this organization.
