The Green Bay Packers' uncertain future with Aaron Rodgers continues to elicit speculation, concern, and uncertainty. Davante Adams, Rodgers' No. 1 wide receiver, is the most recent to weigh in, admitting that if Rodgers leaves Green Bay, he would have to reconsider his position on the squad.
“Potentially. Potentially,” answered Adams Monday on The Herd with Colin Cowherd when asked whether Rodger’s departure would have an effect on his future in Green Bay.
He continued, “That’s my guy, that’s the only guy that I’ve had. Other than that, 2017 season, when he got hurt, it’s the only guy that I’ve played with. We built up a special connection over the years that’s put us both in really good positions in our careers. Not that he needed me to come along for it, because he was already in that spot. But we established a lot together. It would change a lot, man. Doesn’t mean potentially I’d be gone, but I’d definitely have to do some extra thinking if my guy wasn’t here.”
Rodgers, who has led the Packers to back-to-back NFC Championship Games, is dissatisfied with his current deal, issues such as his displeasure with the club’s selection of QB Jordan Love in 2020 are mentioned as potential sources of dissatisfaction.
If Rodgers moves on to another team or does not return to the Packers, Adams' development as one of the best receivers in the game would be severely hampered.
