AFC Rumors: Adams, Manning, Broncos

Jets safety Jamal Adams You have submitted a business request and you may well have problems with Adam Gase – months after expressing frustration with GM Joe Douglas listening to offers on last year’s business deadline. However, Jets DC Gregg Williams arrived at the All-Pro defense on Thursday.

You have to manage your contract“Williams said, through the Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.”It will do all those kinds of things. … I hope everything goes well. I love training him. And I got it back.

“… I think his world. I have had a chance to train a lot of really good players. Some who are already in the Hall of Fame. And many others who will go to the Hall of Fame. And they will have a legitimate opportunity to stay healthy to be one of those guys later that we will all talk about. “

The second-year Jets defensive chief added that he wants Adams “to feel good about being here.” Given the events of the past eight months, that will take some work. Here is the latest from the AFC:

  • If the Jets switched to Adams, they have third-round rookies Ashtyn Davis as a candidate to replace him along with the holder of the contract year Marcus Maye, Connor Hughes of The Athletic notes (subscription required). The Jets were also interested in Tony Jefferson before signing with the Ravens in 2017 and a month before they recruited Adams. Jefferson returned to free agency after Baltimore released him earlier this year. Eric reid It also remains unsigned, providing some options if the Jets are seriously entertained by exchanging their best player.
  • Bryce Callahanthe injury altered the Broncos‘Cornerback plans last season, forcing Dynamo Chris Harris play almost exclusively outdoors. Callahan has recovered from his latest foot problem, and the Broncos hope to play it in the slot, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic. Denver still looks skinny on the corner, but Jhabvala adds the team expects a third-round rookie. Michael Ojemudia can take advantage of the work of the opposite outer corner AJ Bouye. However, that can be difficult with Vic Fangio using a complex scheme and the Broncos having seen multiple third round corners (Brendan Langley and Isaac Yiadom) struggle in recent years.
  • Peyton Manning has said years ago that he was close to signing with the TitansBut the Broncos won for the future Hall of Fame quarterback. Discussing the consequences of Manning’s free agency in 2012, the former Titans executive Mike Reinfeldt He said the pin’s acclaimed schedule affected the Titans’ plans. “All he wished had happened was that Peyton could have made the decision sooner.“Reinfeldt said, through Mike Sando of The Athletic.”But I don’t know if he was able to do it because of his health. … There is no magic way to team up, but what you can’t do is get caught between one plan and the other. That’s what happened to us. “The Titans allocated money to Manning during the first week of free agency, and then waited for the former Colt’s decision, causing them to lose their search for Mario Williams and Pro Bowl guards Carl Nicks and Ben grubbs, with Sando adding that each one was a target of the then GM Ruston Webster. Tennessee finished 6-10 in 2012 and would not republish a winning season until 2016.
