WFAN hosts Maggie Gray and Bart Scott announced Adams' decision to cancel his spot on their show.
"Jamal is no longer going to be with us," Gray said. "Here is the statement from Jamal: 'On advice from his family and his representatives, Jamal has decided to no longer do his weekly radio spot.'"
That led to a series of unusual events, starting with Adams removing the New York Jets from his Twitter bio.
Even though there was speculation Adams also unfollowed the Jets on social media, he told ESPN's Dianna Russini he never followed them since being drafted in 2017.
Gray asked Adams if he was trying to send the Jets a message by changing his Twitter bio during his appearance on the show last week: "It's social media, at the end of the day. It's outside noise. Like I said, I'm not focused on that; I'm focused on this team and how we can get better."
Adams was back in the starting lineup Sunday against the New England Patriots. He recorded three solo tackles and returned an interception 61 yards for a touchdown in the Jets' 30-14 loss.
