The final reason why this trade makes sense for both sides is Todd Bowles.
Todd Bowles, the current defensive coordinator for the Buccaneers, was the head coach of the New York Jets when they took Jamal Adams sixth overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.
While Bowles made some questionable decisions on the offensive side of the ball while the head coach for the Jets, he is one of the best defensive minds in the NFL. Every player in the league can recognize what Bowles brings to the table and would be lucky to play under him.
While Jamal Adams is already one of the best safeties in the NFL, he has to recognize that his best chance of maintaining that status is to play under a coach that can keep him playing at a high level.
Gregg Williams is already a good defensive coordinator but Todd Bowles and the Buccaneer defense appear to be a good location if Adams is looking for a change of scenery.
Todd Bowles has the ability to give Jamal Adams a clear spot as a leader over a very young secondary. Adams would make strides under Bowles and could immediately find success as both a player and as a leader in Bowles’ highly aggressive 3-4 defense.
Adams wants a coaching staff that will support him and he will find that and more with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Todd Bowles and Bruce Arians.
