It’s been nearly three months since the Packers traded their Davante Adams wide receiver for Raiders.
In the move, Adams secured a new contract worth $141.25 million over five years, earned $28.25 million a season and became the highest-grossing wide receiver in the NFL. It was Adams’ trade to Las Vegas that left many shocked by the close relationship between star and midfield star Aaron Rodgers.
However, when Rodgers was asked if he was trying to recruit Adams to stay at Green Bay ahead of the mega trade, the four-times best player said while the two were in frequent contact, he didn’t try to recruit his favorite target to stay in. Green Bay.
“We used to talk every day,” Rodgers Ryan Woods said from Green Bay Press-Gazette. “If I feel I have to re-enlist a guy like this to the Packers, I’ve already lost.”
Rodgers came under heat after the Packers traded Adams as the deal came two weeks after the star quarterback announced he was returning to Green Bay. However, Adams said during his introductory press in Las Vegas that the deal was just an “idea” until the deal was done, noting his level of play with Rodgers and what the two were able to do at Green Bay.

“I will not take anything that Green Bay gave me, and what Aaron gave me [Rodgers] He gave me. “It was a great opportunity to work there and do what I’ve been doing for almost a decade,” Adams said. “Things change sometimes.”
Even with his star outing in the West, Rodgers says he plans to spend the rest of his career in Green Bay. He enters the 2022 season with a new threat when greeted by Christian Watson of North Dakota, the player who put Green Bay up 19 places to score in the second round this year.
Last season, Rodgers threw for 4,115 yards and 37 touchdowns in 16 games.
