Green Bay Packers four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Davante Adams is in the final year of his contract and assured everyone earlier this month he will report to training camp in late July even without putting pen to paper on an extension. Adams previously admitted, however, he could leave the Packers via free agency next March if quarterback and reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers is no longer associated with the franchise by then.
The 28-year-old recently told Fox News Rodgers' future could impact his own down the road.
"That’ll play into it, but there’s been talks, just really just talks, but we haven’t really done anything or talked about anything that’s worth mentioning," Adams explained about contract discussions. "It’s kind of just been the beginning stage of talking, and we’ll figure out what happens. Hopefully, something gets figured out, but I’m just there to play ball either way. That stuff will take care of itself eventually."
Adams added: "I’ve been to four NFC Championship games and I have no Super Bowl appearances … That’s the ultimate goal."
In that same conversation with Fox, Adams noted he and his teammates don't discuss the Rodgers situation, but that matter could leave the Packers with a difficult choice to make this fall. If Jordan Love and not Rodgers is the starting QB for a struggling team, Green Bay may have to shop Adams to a contender in October or ultimately risk losing him for nothing.
