The New York Jets finally made a blockbuster move on Saturday, sending superstar safety Jamal Adams to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a pair of first-round picks and safety Bradley McDougald.

Getting a pair of firsts for a player they weren't likely to have in New York for the long term made could make this a great move for the Jets. Looking at their 2020 outlook, however, suggests there could be some growing pains.

FanDuel Sportsbook has odds available for all 16 of the Jets' 2020 regular-season games, and they're projected to go a lowly 4-12 record.

The odds project the Jets to go winless on the road, and they're only barely favored in the games they're projected to win. That includes being one-point favorites at home against the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals, 1.5-point favorites at home against the Las Vegas Raiders and 3.5-point favorites at home against the Miami Dolphins.

The Adams trade was obviously a move to rebuild for the future however, so Jets fans likely aren't too concerned with this shaky 2020 outlook.
