Now, it remains to be seen how legitimate Adams' comments are but, given how the Jets' secondary has been decimated by injuries recently, it makes sense that he says he would entertain a position shift.
"If they need me to go to corner, I'll go to corner," Adams said Monday, per ESPN's Rich Cimini. "I'm dead serious."
Coach Adam Gase does remain optimistic about Johnson's long-term outlook, though, saying, "I don't think it will be months, but, I mean, we'll see. It's week-to-week right now. It'll be about how his body responds to the rehab."
Still, the Jets have to march on and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will have to do his best to make up for the deficiencies. Gase believes this could bring the best out of his team.
"I don't look at it like that," he shared. "This is a great opportunity for a lot of guys. Somebody has to step up and make a name for themselves."
