Are the Dallas Cowboys more or less likely to deal for Jamal Adams this time around?
It seems like every month and a half now over the last year or so, there is a Jamal Adams wants out rumor hitting the mill. This time is no different, except that it has come with a few conditions according to the reports.
Let’s first get to the guts of it all. According to ESPN’s Rich Cimini, Adams did indeed ask the Jets for a trade. Then, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Adams named the teams that he would prefer to be traded to. By now and as this all implies, the Cowboys were on that list.
The plot continued to thicken though. “A source” also told Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News that certain teams could have a few more perks than others if he landed with them.
Because the Dallas Cowboys have been linked to Adams for so long now, one of his preferred destinations per all indications, it would be at least semi-safe to assume that Dallas would be among those chosen few teams able to see him for a year before investing long term.
That in itself makes it more likely that they would deal this time around, but it moves further than that. With this attempt to be moved by the Jets, in a long line of attempts it seems, Adams has made it all but clear that he doesn’t want to be there any longer.
Is the price for Jamal Adams going down for the Dallas Cowboys?
That theoretically drives the price down, well worth a first-round pick of course, if it came to that. While the nature of his list may dictate and facilitate a bidding war between multiple teams that may eventually lead to the parting of some current Cowboys players, whatever the price would be is mere pennies compared to what it could have been on previous occasions.
That too makes a potential deal more likely. The fewer assets that any team has to relinquish in order to get a deal done, the more likely it is that the deal in question gets done.
So, just based on the initial reports and known factors, any potential deal by the Cowboys for Jamal Adams looks as good now as it ever has. The price may just be right to finally get him to Dallas.
And getting him there seems especially right when you take into the account the included perk of having flexibility in appraisal time of the price to keep him there. That is why the Dallas Cowboys are now more likely than ever to deal for Jamal Adams.
