The defense is expected to be without star safety Jamal Adams and cornerbacks Brian Poole and Arthur Maulet against the Miami Dolphins this weekend.
“I mean, it changes everything for that entire secondary right now with where we’re at,” coach Adam Gase said Thursday. “We got a lot of moving pieces going around. We got to work through a lot of contingency plans. Something would happen to one guy, it could start a chain reaction.”
As bad as their situation is, Gase is particularly confident in Marcus Maye’s ability to anchor the secondary come Sunday. The Jets’ second-round pick in 2017 has been a consistent presence on the field this season and will be challenged in the absence of Adams.
