It’s rare to see New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick smile, but even he couldn’t resist finding a sinister delight in messing with the New York Jets and head coach Adam Gase.Belichick can’t hide the smile!! pic.twitter.
“I woke up Monday morning and I kind of found out through a couple of reliable people that I have a lot of trust in that I was,” Adams said, via video from sny.com. “You know, at the end of the day, I know he has a job to do and I respect it. I hold myself in a high regard. I’ve done everything they’ve asked me to do since I’ve been here for the three years. You know I didn’t take that lightly. I really didn’t.
“When my agent called me and he told me what was going on, it definitely hurt me. You know what I mean? I hold myself at a high level. The Rams don’t take calls on. The Patriots don’t take calls on . You know what I mean? That’s where I hold myself in that regard. Regardless, that I understand you have a job to do, that’s the way I took it.”
Jets trade DL Leonard Williams to Giants
The USC product is in the final year of his deal, and the Jets wanted to get something for him while they still could. The third-rounder they’ll be getting from the Giants will presumably be an early third-rounder.Per Schefter, the Jets are getting a third-round pick in next April’s draft, and a fifth-round pick in the 2021 draft. Fortunately for Williams, he won’t have to move far, as the Jets are sending him to their crosstown rivals. Schefter soon added in a separate tweet that the fifth-round pick becomes a fourth-rounder if Williams signs a new deal with the G-Men before the start of the next league year.
Adams tweeted after the trade deadline Tuesday that Douglas went “.” He said he met with the team late last week to tell them he wanted to remain with the Jets.
Adams continued to insist Wednesday he felt betrayed.
“I felt it needed to be said. I don’t regret it. I don’t,” Adams said of his tweets. “I’m going to continue to be a professional. A lot of people probably disagree, but a lot of people disagree with a lot of people’s decisions on what they do in life period. So I’m not focused on that.”
The former first-round choice answered “I really don’t know” when asked if he wants to remain with the team long term or whether he will ask for an offseason trade.
The Cowboys were among the teams with interest in acquiring Adams at the deadline. They reportedly offered a first-round choice plus a third-day pick, but the Jets wanted a first-rounder and two second-rounders.
Adams said once he heard the trade rumors, he told his agent Dallas “is definitely a spot I would love to land.” Adams grew up in the Dallas area.
“When I found out I was being shopped, and I was on the verge of being traded, that was one of the teams that I told them I would love to go to and it was to go to the Dallas Cowboys,” Adams said. “People got to understand I’m born and raised in Dallas.”

We have no idea what the Seahawks were doing. We’re also pretty sure that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll agreed with that sentiment. What exactly was Ifedi doing there? Did he legit try to take the ball from his quarterback?Either way, it resulted in eight points for the 49ers and a mere three-point deficit.
