The Green Bay Packers famously traded Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders this offseason. The move reunited Adams with Derek Carr, one of his best friends and his college quarterback. Recently, Adams made a very interesting comment comparing Carr to Aaron Rodgers. In an interview, Adams said, “As far as talent and ability, it’s really similar.” As one would imagine, there were a great deal of opinions posted on social media that followed.
Some People Did Not Think It Was a Big Deal
There are some people who do not think that what Adams said is that big of a deal, that he is just being a good teammate.
Davante Adams has always been a great teammate. That won’t change in LV. He’s pumping up his new QB and friend. Not a big deal at all. It’s what he’s supposed to do.

Of Course, Others Called Out Davante Adams on It
Not everyone saw what Davante Adams as being a good teammate. Most people, in fact, called him out on it.

To be fair, Davante Adams did not say Derek Carr is as great as Aaron Rodgers. Rather, he said that Carr has the potential to be as great as Rodgers.
As @YourboyQ254 has pointed out, the full context of the Davante Adams comparison with Carr and Rodgers is essential. He likened the comparison to one between himself and Jerry Rice, in other words one is already cemented as an all-time great and the other chasing that greatness.
