"This dude is so special that he can be here at a linebacker position, he can slide out to the slot, he can go back to the deep midde, he can go to deep half," Dawkins said of Adams on Wednesday's 94WIP Marks & Reese Show.
"He can do all of those things. I believe that Jamal is one of those guys and he is a leader. He is a leader of men, not just by words, his actions. How he goes and plays the game, how he practices, how he plays the game, the violence that he plays the game with."
"Getting a sack is not good enough," Dawkins said, explaining the message he gave Adams. "If you beat your guy quick and the quarterback still has the ball, getting a sack is not good enough. The ball is what you want."
"That's different now," Dawkins admitted, when asked if the Eagles should trade for him. "If you're drafting that dude and he's your cat, that's what you would want. When you start talking about giving up three and four first-rounders, that's a different conversation. It really is."
