Jets' Jamal Adams tweets props to Bill Belichick, Patriots for signing Cam Newton

Jets' Jamal Adams tweets props to Bill Belichick, Patriots for signing Cam Newton 1

Jamal Adams likes what the Jets’ archrival did Sunday night.

The All-Pro safety, who wants either a big-money new contract or a trade from Gang Green, posted his approval of the Patriots reportedly signing free-agent quarterback Cam Newton to an incentive-laden contract. Adams mentioned New England coach Bill Belichick by name in his praise.

New England has been expected to take a step back in 2020 after parting ways with Tom Brady in the offseason. A healthy Newton as Brady’s replacement, rather than second-year pro Jarrett Stidham, should enable Belichick and Co. to at least lessen the retreat.

IYER: Why the Jets gave Joe Flacco a new team before Cam Newton signed with one

This response to Adams’ tweet sums up what Jets fans are thinking about the social play. (Hint: They don’t think it was a classy move.)

The Jets, for the record, are 0-6 against the Patriots since Adams entered the league as New York’s first-round draft pick in 2017. Adams did, however, produce a pick-six against Jarrett Stidham — the guy who was in line to replace Brady before the Newton deal — in garbage time of a Week 3 NYJ loss.

Now, Adams will likely see Newton twice this season (COVID-19 permitting) instead. He’s already 0-1 against Superman, with the Jets losing to the Panthers at home in 2017.
