The Jets have locked up their safety of the future.
First-round safety Jamal Adams agreed to terms on a rookie contract with New York on Thursday, a source informed told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport added that the four-year deal is worth $22.3 million, all of which is fully guaranteed. Adams will also cash in on a $14.3 million signing bonus.
The No. 6 overall pick figures to have a prominent role in his first season after the Jets jettisoned Marcus Gilchrist and Calvin Pryor this offseason. At LSU, Adams was both a force in coverage and at tackling, and Gang Green is banking on both strengths translating at the next level.
