Oh, and Rodgers isn’t the only former Packers player comparing Wilson to Adams. Allen Lazard recently told the media regarding Wilson:
“I see a lot of resemblance to Davante. To me, Davante is the best in the league, hands down. But there are a lot of things they do as far as mannerisms, personality, abilities that resemble each other.”
Only time will tell if the connection Rodgers and Wilson have this offseason will translate to the regular season. A lot can change when the pads finally come on.
