This trade between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers would turn the NFL upside down
Star New York Jets safety Jamal Adams continues to steal headlines, once again letting the organization know he wasn’t to leave for greener pastures.
Adams has come out and requested a trade, with numerous teams being featured on his desired list. It feels like only a matter of time before he’s eventually sent packing to a new city.
But, could there be a surprise team ready to give New York a call to strike up a deal? What about the Minnesota Vikings? Believe it or not, a blockbuster trade featuring both teams makes a ton of sense.
In this scenario, we’re drawing up a deal that would truly flip the NFL upside down: Jamal Adams Le’Veon Bell and a third-round pick to the Vikings in exchange for Dalvin Cook and Anthony Harris. While this might seem like the kind of exchange that belongs in a fantasy football league, both squads would benefit from such a move.
Why Vikings and Jets should trade Jamal Adams for Dalvin Cook
Adams clearly doesn’t want to be in town. Bell has stayed loyal to Jets fans, but he hasn’t lived up to the hype. He could use a change of scenery. As for Cook, he’s getting ready to hold out in Minnesota, with his relationship with the front office getting worse by the day.
Harris is set to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason, with it not looking likely he and the Vikes will be able to agree to a big-time extension. There’s drama involving all of these players mentioned. So, why not get them to new teams. A fresh start could benefit everyone, especially Adams and Cook.
Only time will tell if Adams is given a new home. While he may want to go to Dallas, a move to Minnesota would get him into a position to compete for an NFC North title and head to the postseason. We’ll see if the respective general managers here decide to pick up the horn and make some magic happen.
