Jets rookie Jamal Adams says football field ‘perfect place to die’

Jamal Adams has been cheered plenty of times during his football career. This might have been the most awkward.

The New York Jets rookie safety participated in a forum Monday for season-ticket holders that included NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and running back Matt Forte. During a question-and-answer session, a fan asked the panel about player health and safety.

Adams, a first-round draft pick from LSU, isn’t so fond of the NFL rules that often protect offensive players.

“I’m all about making the game safer … but as a defensive player, I’m not a big fan of it,” Adams said with a laugh . “But, I get it. But, again, and I could speak for a lot of guys that play the game, we live and breathe — this is what we’re so passionate about.
