New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell suggested that safety Jamal Adams was one of the reasons why he signed with the team but the two-time Pro Bowl safety didn't keep him promise and stayed with the team. Bell, a three-time Pro Bowl running back, signed with the Jets during the 2019 offseason and it appears that safety Jamal Adams wanted to bring the running back to the team and promised they would work together on building a championship contender.
But Bell and Adams aren't teammates anymore after the Jets agreed to trade the star safety to the Seattle Seahawks this past weekend. In February, Jets General Manager Joe Douglas said he wanted Adams to be a "Jet for life" but when it came to doing a serious work the two sides failed to reach an agreement on a long-term extension.
Over the last few months, the relationship between Adams and the Jets got so bad and the safety was forcing his way out of New York for quite some time. "Ppl do all the hootin & hollerin to get you brought in, just to leave…lol like people weird yooo, the internet got these dudes doin whatever for attention, even when they tell you sh*t they don’t believe themselves," Bell said in a Twitter post.
Adams had a simple response as he said: "Noted! See u Week 14!" But Bell wasn't having it as he continued: “‘Noted’ what?! lol that you LIED? PLEASEE TRUST that it IS ‘noted’ then..& if I’m supposed to take ‘see you in week 14’ as a threat…I don’t!
but it’s still allll love and like I told you ON THE PHONE I want the best for you..if this is the best for you, I want it for you bro”.
Frank Gore comes to the defense of Jets coach Adam Gase
Just before the trade went down, Adams ripped Gase as he told the New York Post he "is not the right leader."
But five-time Pro Bowl running back Gore says he has nothing but respect for coach Gase. "He was always real with me, man,” Gore told Brian Costello of The Post. “[The Jets] have their guy [Le’Veon Bell], but he wanted me to come in and do what I can to help the team.
I respect that. One thing he has never done is tell me one thing and do the other. You know what I’m saying? I feel like that’s the way it should be. He’s always been real. I respect that”.
