Aaron Rodgers had to have figured Davante Adams would remain with the Green Bay Packers when he weighed his decision over staying with the team. Adams is one of the NFL’s most explosive wide receivers. Rodgers and Davante have created havoc for opposing defenses together for years.
Rodgers ultimately decided to stay with Green Bay. The Packers gave Aaron a very generous deal to stick around. The thought of having Davante Adams back on the field with him meant Rodgers would have a legitimate chance at another Super Bowl.
If Davante Adams does win a Super Bowl any time soon, it won’t be in Green Bay. ESPN has reported that the Packers are trading Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. The Packers will get Vegas’ first and second rounds in this year’s draft in return.
The draft picks mean Green Bay will have four picks out of the top sixty. There is a good chance that the Packers can find a serviceable wideout among those selections. Still, whoever the Pack adds will not be Davante Adams.
The Raiders will reunite Adams with his college quarterback from Fresno State, Derek Carr. Both players entered the NFL together when they were drafted in 2014. Las Vegas moved the Raiders’ odds of winning the Super Bowl from 60-1 to 50-1 in the wake of the deal.
Aaron Rodgers will have to find a new favorite receiver. The move could ruffle some feathers among Green Bay fans. Rodgers will have to find chemistry with someone else. If anyone can do it, Aaron can.
