Packers' Davante Adams, other WRs to attend minicamp amid Aaron Rodgers' absence

It seems unlikely Green Bay Packers quarterback and reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers will attend mandatory minicamp sessions this week as the 37-year-old reportedly remains disgruntled and wishes to be traded at some point before the regular season begins in September. 

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, though, four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Davante Adams and other players at the position who previously skipped organized team activities are expected to attend minicamp. As things stood early Monday afternoon, Adams and teammates will be catching passes from 2020 rookie Jordan Love, who received some solid praise from offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett this past Thursday. 

Adams has been outspoken about wanting Rodgers and general manager Brian Gutekunst to repair their relationship as soon as possible, as the 28-year-old said earlier this spring he's "praying" his QB1 returns to guide the Green Bay offense this fall. Adams also admitted last month, however, that he doesn't know what Rodgers is thinking about his immediate future. 

In his latest "Football Morning in America" piece, Peter King wrote Rodgers and the Packers could come to an agreement that involves the future Hall of Famer playing one more season for the franchise and then working with Green Bay on a trade that would occur next year.
