Green Bay Packers four-time Pro Bowl receiver Davante Adams is in the final year of his contract and assured everyone earlier this month, he reports to training camp in late July, even without putting pen to paper in an expansion. Adams admitted earlier, but he could leaving the packages via free agency next March, if quarterback and reigning NFL most valuable player Aaron Rodgers is no longer associated with the franchise by then.
The 28-year-old recently told Fox News Rodgers’ future could affect his own down the road.
“It will play into it, but there have been conversations, just really just conversations, but we haven’t really done anything or talked about anything worth mentioning,” Adams explained of contract discussions. “It’s just been the beginning phase of talking and we’ll find out what’s going on. Hopefully something will be figured out, but I’m just there to play ball both ways. Those things take care of themselves eventually. ”
Adams added: “I’ve been in four NFC championship games and I have no Super Bowl appearances … That’s the ultimate goal.”
In the same conversation with Fox, Adams remarked he and his teammates are not discussing the Rodgers situation, but that case could leave the Packers with a difficult choice to make in the fall. If Jordan Love and not Rodgers is the starting QB for a struggling team, Green Bay could possibly buy Adams for a challenger in October or end up risking losing him for nothing.
