Davante Adams Confirms Speculation About Green Bay Packers Offer

Davante Adams was in a talkative mood this week.

Since the former Packers star took his talents to Sin City, it’s long been speculated that star wide receiver turned down a substantial offer from the Green Bay Packers. Adams confirmed that he did in fact receive a higher offer than the five-year, $141.25 million extension he signed with the Raiders.

“You guys have heard Green Bay offered this which is higher than what I was [going to make with the Raiders] and all of that. And, yeah, I’ll say it, it was true. OK, it was true,” Adams said, via Pro Football Talk. “But there’s much more that goes into it. And family is a big part of it for me. So, geographically being here, it makes it a lot easier for me to stay connected to my family year-round.\

At this stage of his career, Adams feels like he’s earned the right to dictate where he plays.

“And this isn’t Year Two, or I’m not trying to necessarily fight for a job or anything like that to where you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do — you’ve got to stay out there. I had the choice and the choice was for me to come here and raise my family on the West Coast and come out here and have some fun in the sun.”

Davante Adams had 123 receptions for 1,553 yards and 11 touchdowns,

There’s no doubt his numbers will take a dip without Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball.
