After the final seconds ticked off the clock Sunday at Gillette Stadium, and the Jets' 2017 season ended with a 26-6 loss to the Patriots, Jamal Adams sprinted across the field and made sure to get a word with Tom Brady. "I really wanted to trade jerseys with him," the Jets rookie safety said. "But I didn't really want to ask." Adams wished to pay his respects to "the GOAT," as he called Brady. The two chatted for a brief moment before embracing and heading to their respective locker rooms. "I look up to Brady, man, since I've played football, just watching him. He's a true professional," Adams said. "I'm definitely a fan of him, of his game, just the way he carries himself and how professional he is and how he goes about his craft. He cares about this game, and we need a lot more people that's in this league that play like him." Adams played one his better games of the season Sunday - a redemption of sorts from the last time he faced the Patriots and tight end Rob Gronkonski.
