Jamal Adams: Jets 'running out of time' to make changes

Jets safety Jamal Adams is only in his second season, but he knows that life in the NFL is short-lived and he isn’t willing to spend most of his career — or any more of it, for that matter — waiting for the woebegone franchise to turn it around. He wants wins and he wants them now, Jordan Lauterbach of Newsday reports.

“That’s the scary thing,” Adams said Tuesday on WFAN’s “Carlin, Maggie & Bart” show. “I was talking to a couple of my DB’s last night and saying, ‘Man, this thing goes by quick.’ I’m only in my second year, but it’s not college going to the pros to chase your dream. You’re here and once it’s over, it’s over . . . Everybody just has to do their part in the organization. It needs to change. Because, to me, we’re running out of time.” 

Adams continued: “You have to take advantage of all these opportunities. There shouldn’t be any waiting in life, period. You have to attack it. I’m not going to sit here and be OK with losing. I’m not OK with it and I’m not going to get used to it at all. There are going to be things that we are going to have to attack ASAP.”

Adams has known little but losing in his two seasons in the league. The Jets are 8-20 since he was the sixth pick in the 2017 draft. This season, after a Week 1 victory against Detroit in which the Jets looked like an altogether different team — one that creates turnovers and scores points — it has been more of the same. Last Sunday’s 26-22 loss to Tennessee was the most recent rock bottom, with the Titans overcoming a 16-point deficit to deal the Jets (3-9) their sixth consecutive defeat.

“I don’t like losing,” Adams said. “I don’t think anybody likes losing. It’s got to change. It’s not a secret. Everything is out there.”
