In a surprising turn of events for some, the Packers and Davante Adams are no longer talking about a new contract. Ian Rapaport was the first to break the news on social media.
It’s not just Aaron Rodgers: The #Packers and star WR Davante Adams have broken off long-term extension talks. There are no current plans to resume them. The two sides have been negotiating for months, but they are now in a bad place, sources say. First the QB, now the No. 1 WR.

This is certainly a huge blow to the Packers. The team already faces the possibility of losing Aaron Rodgers after this season (or maybe even before this season). Now, it looks as if they will also be without the best wide receiver in the NFL after this year.
On a positive note, not having Aaron Rodgers or Davante Adams will free up a lot of cap space that the Packers can use to add to their roster. Losing both of these players will be a major blow, but the Packers have a very talented roster in addition to them as well.
