Ravens given second-best odds to trade for Jamal Adams

NFL: Pro Bowl-AFC Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

New York Jets safety Jamal Adams requested a trade on Thursday. According to reports, he would welcome a trade to the following seven teams: the Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, and Seattle Seahawks.

SportsLine gives the Ravens the second best odds to acquire Adams at +350. The Cowboys have the best odds at +250.

The Jets do not appear to want to part ways with the All-Pro safety, and there are rumors that the Jets wanted two first-round picks from the Cowboys. It is highly unlikely that a team would give up two first-round picks for a strong safety on the brink of a large contract extension, although Bill O'Brien and the Texans continue to be unpredictable.

The Ravens recently signed Chuck Clark to a three-year contract extension, but Adams is one of the best players in the entire league. They could offer a first-round pick and throw in a player or Day 3 pick. If they want to hold onto future draft capital, they could gauge New York's interest in a rookie like J.K. Dobbins or Patrick Queen.

However, I wouldn't be surprised to see Adams stay in New York for now. He has two years remaining on his current deal, and the Jets can simply choose not to move him.
