  • (1:51) Adam Schefter, ESPN Senior WriterNov 4, 2023, 05:22 PM ET Close ESPN NFL Insider Joined ESPN in 2009 Former president of the Pro Football Writers of America and the author of four books REACTIONS The Jets called the Raiders before Tuesday's trade deadline to see whether there was any way Las Vegas would consider sending star wide receiver Davante Adams to New York, league sources told ESPN.
  • Trading for Adams was a move the Jets had debated, discussed and planned for throughout the summer, sources told ESPN, as New York was waiting for the right moment to reach out to Las Vegas to land the three-time All-Pro.
  • But the Raiders, less than a day removed from a Monday night loss to the Detroit Lions and just hours before firing coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler, told the Jets they were not interested in trading Adams, just as another source had said earlier Tuesday that there "was no chance in hell" that Las Vegas would trade away the six-time Pro Bowler.
  • One league source told ESPN that it would be interesting to think what might have happened if Raiders owner Mark Davis had fired McDaniels and Ziegler immediately after Monday night's 26-14 loss, setting in motion a sea of changes before the 4 p.m. ET Tuesday trade deadline rather than after it.
