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.
They, along with the Dallas Cowboys, both were seeking out a trade with the New York Jets for S Jamal Adams.
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.

The #Jets wanted another pick thrown in along with those two first-rounders for Jamal Adams, and not a late-rounder, either. #Cowboys said no thanks. https://t.co/vZo1pf9NqP
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.
The Ravens was the team. Conversation was had; didn’t get very far. @AdamSchefter just mentioned on air, as well. https://t.co/smTDRXJKqC— Peter Schrager (@PSchrags) October 29, 2019
In the end, the Ravens stand pat and the Patriots will face Thomas and Chuck Clark as the back-end safeties on Sunday Night.
