Adams and the Jets have reached an impasse in contract talks, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.

The 24-year-old safety wants a new deal before Week 1 of his fourth pro season, while the Jets prefer to wait on a long-term extension. The team exercised its fifth-year option on Adams, who has averaged 70 tackles, 8.3 pass defenses, four sacks and two forced fumbles per season since he was picked sixth overall in the 2017 draft. The Jets reportedly have no desire to trade him, though Cimini suggests that more than half the teams in the NFL have reached out to the them to express interest. Adams is due to make $3.5 million this year and approximately $9.9 million under the fifth-year option in 2021.
