New York Jets safety Jamal Adams is ready for what awaits this upcoming season as he’s focusing on all the little things towards being successful in his second year in the pros.

Last season, safety Jamal Adams totaled a successful campaign with the New York Jets. He totaled 63 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble, and six passes defended. Of course, Adams didn’t get a single interception but had a few instances where it was within his grasp but couldn’t haul it in.

Besides what he did on the gridiron, Adams also became a vocal leader in the locker room. His energy was infectious as often times he was rallying his fellow teammates to do their very best week in, week out. As he prepares for his second season with the Jets, Adams is all about focusing on the little things when it comes to his ability to be a shut-down safety.

Adams has the potential to be one incredible safety but it will take more of a mental aspect for him to put everything together. It’s not always about hitting opponents at full force, but rather, being strategic with your body and hand placement to create mishaps.

In an article written by Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, here is what Adams said he’s working on to improve this upcoming season from that mental aspect:

“It’s very rare that people just beat me just based off talent,” Adams said of 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.”

Adams went to say that he could be in the running for being the best safety in the NFL but that it’s all about focusing on the little things. Adams is on the right track as he’s all about honing his craft towards greatness. He has the confidence in himself to get the job done as now it’s just a matter of execution and consistency.

In the grand scheme of things, Adams will be a big part of the Jets current rebuilding process as his development will only add to the overall talent on the roster. Considering all the top talent in the Jets defensive secondary, it could easily be a strength of the team with Adams leading the way.
