Rumors are swirling that Davante Adams could ask out of Las Vegas and request a trade to the New York Jets.
Raiders WR Davante Adams to Reunite With Aaron Rodgers?
One of the main reasons why he would request a trade is because he can play with Aaron Rodgers. They were teammates with the Green Bay Packers for a while. Davante Adams wants to play for a Super Bowl contender and not be on a team potentially involved in the Caleb Williams sweepstakes.
The Raiders already traded Darren Waller to the New York Giants earlier this offseason, and Josh Jacobs is currently holding out of training camp. Davante Adams could be the next player to be involved in an exodus from the Raiders organization.
There was a reason why Aaron Rodgers restructured his contract from $110 million to $75 million over the next two seasons. He wants to win a Super Bowl badly with the New York Jets and bring all of the players he needs to win. Davante Adams would make this offense even scarier. According to Spotrac, Adams has four years remaining on his contract and also would have a cap hit of $14.7 million this season and $25.3 million next season.
New York Jets Could Be Super Bowl Contenders
Last season, Davante Adams caught 100 passes for 1,516 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns. He averaged 15.4 yards per catch also.
