Safety Jamal Adams has told the New York Jets that he wants to be traded, a source told ESPN. Could Adams, frustrated by contract negotiations, force the team's hand?

The 2017 top-10 pick has averaged 91 tackles over three seasons, and he has 12 sacks and two interceptions in his career. He is owed $3.5 million this season, and then $9.9 million in 2021 when/if the Jets pick up his fifth-year option.

Adams told the New York Daily News in an interview that he doesn't believe Jets coach Adam Gase to be "the right leader for this organization."

Will he be traded? That remains to be seen. But we asked our experts where Adams would fit best in a trade, and whether the Jets could land a haul of draft picks in a hypothetical deal. And should Adams be the highest-paid safety in the NFL, as he desires? Our crew weighs in.

According to Adam Schefter, Adams would accept a trade to the Ravens, Cowboys, Texans, Chiefs, Eagles, 49ers or Seahawks. Which of those represents the best fit for him?
