AFC Notes: Jamal Adams, Jets, Browns


Jamal Adams

  • ESPN’s Rich Cimini writes that if S Jamal Adams isn’t extended this year, it could result in another flare-up of conflict and Adams requesting a trade. 
  • Though the team technically still has two more years of contractual control plus a franchise tag, Cimini says Adams will want to become the NFL’s highest-paid safety at a minimum. 



Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said he “absolutely” expects Odell Beckham Jr. to be back with the team for the 2020 season.

Absolutely,’’ Haslam said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “Odell is extremely talented. He was hampered by the groin injury. Listen, he could have done some things better and we could have done some things better. I think Kevin [Stefanski] is very excited to have Odell on the team. The surgery went well, he’s rehabbing and we look forward to having him and being a big, big producer for the team this year.”

Browns’ new HC Kevin Stefanski said he met with Beckham and has “full confidence” that the receiver is committed to their program. 

My meeting went well,’’ Stefanski said. “Not to get into too many specifics, but we talked about a lot of topics. And then, you know, commitment is shown over time. So I have full confidence in Odell. I’ve spoken to him a couple times. Have met with him face to face and really looking forward to getting to know him more, him getting to know me and then getting him in this scheme, getting him around the coaches and then see where we go.”

Stefanski said he would also like Kareem Hunt to return for next season as well. 

“I think I certainly want Kareem and Odell on the team this year,’’ Stefanski said. “Yes, they’re players I believe in. Again, two different situations, but to lump them together, I would put them with all of our players. There’s a standard that we’ll set and that we’re going to ask of them to adhere to those standards.”
