One of the biggest names that was rumored to be on the move before today's NFL trade deadline was New York Jets safety Jamal Adams. At the end of the day, Adams is staying put in New York.

Jets GM Joe Douglas insists he was only listening to teams inquiring about Adams and that he didn't shop the third-year pro around. Adams is saying differently, and it is pretty clear the two sides have some making up to do.

Regardless of whether Douglas initiated any conversations with teams or not, it has been widely confirmed that the Dallas Cowboys spoke with the Jets about Adams. NFL Network's

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jets countered with a whopping request: a first-round pick and two second-round selections.

If Rapoport's tweet is accurate, that's a steep price, and the Jets had to know Dallas wouldn't match it. That makes us think they really didn't want to deal Adams unless they were blown away by an offer.
