Davante Adams may have been given the franchise tag by Green Bay, but the Raiders still have options at the wide receiver group.
Highly regarded as the best receiver in the NFL, Davante Adams was set to hit the free-agent market this year, and fans of the Las Vegas Raiders were all over it.
Not only was Adams on the top of virtually every Raiders fan’s wishlist for his receiving ability, but the back-to-back first-team All-Pro has publicly expressed interest in reuniting with college teammate Derek Carr.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem like a pairing that’s going to happen any time soon. It isn’t just the Adams tag by itself that initiates the idea the receiver is staying in Green Bay; After all, a tag means next to nothing if a player is unwilling to sign it.
What really leads to the conclusion Adams isn’t going anywhere is the news Green Bay was able to bring back quarterback Aaron Rodgers on a 4-year deal. As you can expect, this quarterback-receiver duo are as close as any, with Rodgers even going as far as saying wherever he ends up this offseason is where he wants Adams to be. Perhaps not so shockingly, here they are, together.
While the door isn’t officially closed here, it’s easy to conclude Green Bay doesn’t want the receiver going anywhere, and neither does Rodgers. With Rodgers returning to the Packers, it’s also fair to conclude Adams is content staying in Wisconsin.
