New York Jets safety Jamal Adams recently made comments about vowing he’d never miss a Pro Bowl after missing out in his rookie season. Here’s what he said he’s going to work on in order to be a household name.
A true gauge of any player in the NFL comes from statistics. The better your stats are on the gridiron, not only lets you become a household name but gets you even more respect from your fellow football players. When it comes to the Pro Bowl, it’s an event that not only brings bragging rights but also solidifies a player that they’re among the best of the best. For safety Jamal Adams of the New York Jets, he’s likely to be upset from not making it last year and using it as motivation.
In his rookie season with the Jets, Adams totaled 63 tackles, two sacks, and six tipped passes. Sadly, Adams failed to record a single interception even though he had a few occasions where it was at his fingertips in making his first one in the pros.
Adams didn’t make the Pro Bowl in his rookie season as that undoubtedly sparked him to continue honing his craft at being one of the top safeties in the league. He recently made some comments about never missing a Pro Bowl ever again as it all comes down to discipline.

In an article written by Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, here is what Adams had to say about this topic and what he’s working on to be a Pro Bowl safety:
“It’s very rare that people just beat me just based off talent,” Adams said on his coverage skills. “It’s more what I did to myself to put myself in a bad position. I got to be more disciplined with my eyes. It’s tougher than it seems. But you just got to be more disciplined in your craft, be a technician and continue to get better each and every day.”
Ideally, Adams will likely be even better in his sophomore season with the Jets thanks to everything he brings to the table. All he needs to do is continue working hard and with his surreal work ethics and ability to be a leader on defense, big things definitely on the horizon.
If Adams is going to continue being a catalyst for the Jets defense, it all comes down to the little things and being consistent week in, week out. Adams has what it takes to be one incredible safety and not making the Pro Bowl last season will easily fuel him towards greatness.
