Packers' Davante Adams won't skip training camp if he doesn't sign a contract extension

The Green Bay Packers can count on at least one top-tier talent showing up for training camp this summer regardless of his contract status. 

On the same day that quarterback and reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers skipped the start of mandatory minicamp amid reports he wants to be traded, four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Davante Adams reported to camp after electing to pass on organized team activities in the early days of the final year of his deal. 

Adams left little doubt on Tuesday he has no plans to miss training camp even if he and the Packers don't put pen to paper on an extension beforehand.

While Adams is committed to playing for Green Bay through the upcoming campaign, he admitted last month he would "have to do some extra thinking" about his long-term future if Rodgers is serious about not playing another down for the organization. 

Head coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday he and the Packers are taking Rodgers' absence from minicamp "one day at a time" and will "try to remedy the situation as best we can."
