Interesting insight on Davante.

But can you blame him? You will only live once, maybe Davante liked the climate and lower taxes of Nevada? Maybe he likes being near mountains. Football isn't "life"

I don't see someone like Davante, or AR for that matter, being the type of person to "live to work"

So whether it was personal preference, weather, lower taxes, geography, playing with Carr, etc. It doesn't really matter honestly

Good for Davante. Everyone sort of won in the end
I think it had more to do with playing with his buddy Carr. I say that because in 2017, the Raiders were still the Oakland Raiders. Anyway, he is no longer a Packer and it will be interesting if he ever comments on his relationship with AR.

Adams is not a traitor - He is a very good NFL receiver who was productive here, got a chance to play for the team he grew up rooting for, and took it. I wish him all the best, as I am sure many others do.

Aaron Rodgers is not anyone's idle, although some may see him as an idol, which is a different word.
During OTA's Rodgers has been my idle idol.

I mean I don't think it really matters to be honest. Davante would be wise to just NOT SAY ANYTHING about whether he prefers Carr or Rodgers to throw to him.

Objectively, we CAN for CERTAIN say that Nevada is a nicer/warmer climate than Wisconsin and there are lower (or none?) state income taxes... I could see how that could be appealing to some

To each his own

Yup. Davante doesn't seem like the kind of guy that will throw shade on someone. If he has any beefs with Rodgers or the Packers, I can see him keeping tight lipped. I'm sure he's quite pleased with Aaron's contributions to help make him the highest paid WR in the NFL, the fact that he is now playing on the team he dreamed about playing for and with his college buddy and QB. He's gotta be pretty happy, even if it was a little less money.

Money wise it's all relative. Nevada has ZERO state income tax compared to Wisconsin. Also the winters aree obviously MUCH LESS harsh in Nevada than Wisconsin

Listen to the whole clip. Rodgers appears to be serious when he says he helped him to get to Vegas.

Why would I applaud him for helping the best WR in the NFL jump ship? For all we know, this is why Rodgers seemed pretty intent on throwing to him, wanted to drive his value up. Which helps the Packers in what they get for Davante, but not so much if he was over forcing the ball to his friend.

I'm sorry, Poker, I respect your opinion on most topics but that's utter BS.

I understand people not liking Rodgers off the field (as I've said repeatedly, most likely he isn't a guy I would like to go for a beer with) but it's absolutely ridiculous how some of you go to great lengths to blame him for something he had no effect on.

I saw an excerpt from an interview with Davante. I got the impression that based on conversations with Aaron he didn't think Aaron would be playing much longer.

Who is blaming Rodgers for Davante wanting to go to Vegas? I sure didn't. Again, I think you have gotten so sensitive about Rodgers, you take any news, even me posting Rodgers himself saying that he knew Davante wanted to play for the Raiders and he helped make that happen, as people trying to throw shade on him. How can you dispute Rodgers own words?

so, some of you find it surprising that Rodgers isn't going to be here much longer and Carr being 10 years younger will likely be around longer? NO **** Rodgers isn't going to be here that long. I said before last year started 1-3 years tops. Most of the greats have called it quits already by this time in their career or earlier.

Davante was asked to compare Rodgers and Carr.

“As far as talent and ability, it’s really similar, if I’m keeping it real,” Adams answered.

How did Rodgers help Adams get traded to the Raiders??? Did he call Dave Ziegler and worked out the trade for him??? And I'm not even talking about the nonsense you posted about Rodgers targeting Adams to increase his trade value for this offseason.

What Rodgers actually said is that he talked to Adams about both of their plans moving forward. It shouldn't be surprising that he didn't guarantee to play into five season in those conversations though.

FYI, while Brady has made a lot of fans believe there are a ton of quarterbacks playing into their 40s there have been only FIVE QBs (Brady, Moon, Brees, Testaverde and Favre) in NFL history who have thrown a season's worth of pass attempts after the age of how old Rodgers will be entering the 2023 season.

Davante confirms that his conversations with Rodgers influenced his decision to leave Green Bay.


Nobody should be surprised by anything Adams' said.

I couldn't have said it any better.

Did you ever consider that this was one of the big reasons Gute pounced on the opportunity to draft Love? ;)
