  • Per ESPN’s Rich Cimini, Jets HC Adam Gase said the organization is committed to S Jamal Adams despite trade rumors earlier this year: “You guys know where I stand with Jamal. He has been one of the best players I have ever seen play in person. He’s done nothing but work extremely hard, fight through injury, be there for his teammates, make plays when we needed him to. He has been the heart and soul of our defense.”
  • Jets GM Joe Douglas also praised Adams but didn’t commit to making him an extension offer. (Brian Costello)

  • Douglas mentioned he had a good discussion with impending free-agent WR Robby Anderson: “He knows how valued he is here.” (Manish Mehta)
  • The Jets expect WR Quincy Enunwa to return in 2020. (Hughes)
