The NFL trade deadline didn't result in any league-changing deals. But there were certainly a few star players' names thrown in the preliminary trade talk discussions throughout the day on Tuesday.

Jets safety Jamal Adams was involved in several possible trade scenarios, specifically with the Dallas Cowboys. But that trade didn't come to fruition.

Early reports suggested Adams was the one to approach the Jets asking for a trade. But the star defensive back shot down those rumors on Twitter after the trade deadline. Adams made it clear those trade demands were "completely false."

But that wasn't the only tweet Adams sent on Tuesday. The New York safety also called out the Jets' front office on Twitter. Apparently Adams met with the Jets' GM and head coach Adam Gase last week, informing them he wanted to stay in New York. But as Adams points out in the tweet, the team "shopped" him around to other suitors. Here's what Adams had to say about the situation:

"At the end of the week last week, I sat down with the GM and Coach Gase and told them I want to be here in New York," Adams said, via At the end of the week last week, I sat down with the GM and Coach Gase and told them I want to be here in New York. I was told yesterday by my agent that the GM then went behind my back and shopped me around to teams, even after I asked him to keep me here! Crazy business.

">Twitter. "I was told yesterday by my agent that the GM then went behind my back and shopped me around to teams, even after I asked him to keep me here! Crazy business."

As we all know, Adams is still with the Jets. But there's clearly some trust issues here now.

Hopefully the Jets and Adams can work things out quickly. New York travels to Miami to play the Dolphins on Sunday.
