One of the only bright spots of the season for the New York Jets has been the incredible performance by safety Jamal Adams. Head coach Todd Bowles recently makes comments about his biggest strides this season.
At 3-8 so far this season, the New York Jets are about to have their third straight losing season. They are just another loss away from being officially eliminated from the NFL Playoffs and well, all the players can do is play for pride at this point.
One of the very few bright spots of the season is undoubtedly the stellar and consistent play of safety Jamal Adams. The second-year safety is having a Pro Bowl-like year and continues to prove he can be a cornerstone on defense for many years to come.
Besides everything Adams brings to the table, he’s developed into a vocal leader on the gridiron. You’ll often times see Adams calling out what he sees and getting everyone to rally behind him on key defensive situations.

Even head coach Todd Bowles knows that Adams is developing into a star safety. Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is what Bowles said where Adams had made his biggest strides so far this season:
Just mentally, film study, where his eyes are on the field as far as reading keys and just watching more film. He watched a lot last year, but as a rookie, you see a lot of different things than you do in your second year, and I think he has really matured that way and understanding how people are trying to attack him.
As the seasons come and go, Adams will only continue to evolve towards being an all-around elite safety. He’s well on his way as it’s all about the little things he does right that separates him from the rest.
Hopefully, the Jets build around Adams in the future to truly unleash his potential. Adams can’t do it all but with a better supporting cast around him, could be an impact player in the future as he becomes an even bigger household name. Even if an entirely new coaching staff is on the horizon for the Jets next season, there is no denying Adams is a player on the rise.
