WR Davante Adams told the Packers he will not play on the franchise tag during the 2022 season, and negotiations on a new deal aren’t in a good place.
And this is probably the massive delay in Rodgers signing the actual deal....
It's all good....Rodgers indecisiveness has just forced the Packers front office to work harder and faster.
So now the Packers wait on Davante and if people don't think that is that big of a deal, it actually is. Due to Rodgers saying "yes" to staying, it appears that the moves Gute is now making, are ones that put the Packers all in for a run at a Super Bowl. How is that run going to go without Davante? Meanwhile, the Packers decisions on players will kick in some of the roster bonuses when the new league year starts.
Sure, the Packers and Davante have plenty of time to figure things out, but the Packers are totally up against it, if they go into Free Agency thinking Davante will eventually cave and he doesn't. Much like waiting on Rodgers Decision, the Packers are letting 1 player influence their moves with the roster.
