Though the Ravens did not execute the anticipated trade for a pass rusher, they were reportedly in the mix for a certain defensive player, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Add one more team to the mix from today: Ravens were actively going after Jets’ safety Jamal Adams, per source. But Ravens and Jets could not reach an agreement.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 29, 2019
While the thought of pairing Adams with Earl Thomas III is exciting, the asking price for Adams will quickly relinquish the disappointment of not witnessing Adams in the purple and black. According to reports, the Jets were seeking two first-round picks plus more.
I like the idea of signing Adams but mercy, two first-round picks plus more sounds like a terrible idea. It’s no surprise the talks between the Ravens and Jets didn’t get far, according to GMFB’s Peter Schrager.
In the end, the Ravens stand pat and the Patriots will face Thomas and Chuck Clark as the back-end safeties on Sunday Night.
