Former Green Bay Packers star receiver Davante Adams is quickly becoming unhappy with the Las Vegas Raiders’ lack of success. Finishing his most recent game with nearly 150 yards and two touchdowns and still losing caused some frustrations, to say the least. Departing from Green Bay in 2021, he left the Packers with a huge hole to fill. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to fill the shoes of perhaps the best receiver in the NFL. With the Green Bay Packers still missing a proven WR1, they could very much use Adams. Fortunately for Green Bay, they were listed as a potential landing spot if Las Vegas moves Adams.
Green Bay Packers among six teams listed as trade destinations for Adams.
NFL insider Matt Lombardo of FanBuzz recently released an article in which he listed six teams that could land Adams. Those teams are the Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals, San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, and the Packers. Out of all these teams, the Packers are far and away the best destination for both parties. Adams should see more team success as well as individual success, and having a superstar receiver would do wonders for the development of Jordan Love.
The Packers’ receiving core isn’t exactly their strong suit, especially with Christian Watson being out for the first three weeks of the season. While Romeo Doubs has done a great job, you can’t expect him to play at this level all season. Watson is the obvious WR1, but even then, he hasn’t proved himself yet to be a star receiver for the Packers.
He had a fantastic rookie season, but he didn’t produce the numbers you need out of your best receiver. He should just do fine in his role, but we can’t be certain. Even if he does have a great season, their receiving core would improve significantly with Adams in the lineup.
As previously mentioned, the player that would be impacted the most is Love. Having a receiver who can turn a bad throw into a spectacular play is the perfect fit with a first-year starter. Love has looked really solid thus far, and Adams could help turn him into a great quarterback by the end of the season.
