Earlier this afternoon, a potentially massive trade was floated by an NFL insider regarding New York Jets star safety Jamal Adams. The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly interested in trading for a former top-10 pick.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys have reached out to the Jets about acquiring standout third-year safety Jamal Adams. Rapoport indicates the compensation for the potential deal would be "massive."

Not long after Rapoport's report, a former NFL player and current ESPN analyst said Adams would welcome the trade.

According to former Pittsburgh Steelers corner Ryan Clark, Adams "would like to go home to Texas and play for the Cowboys."

The NFL trade deadline closes at 4:00 p.m. ET. At 4-3, the Cowboys lead the NFC East, but the Philadelphia Eagles aren't far behind. Landing Adams would immediately improve Dallas' defense.

The No. 6 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft out of LSU, Adams was a Pro Bowler and second-team All-Pro selection last season. In seven games this season, he recorded 39 tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown.

Last season, Adams recorded 115 stops, along with 12 passes defensed, 3.5 sacks and an interception. Will he land on a new team?

Stay tuned for the latest from the NFL before the trade deadline.
