Davante Adams pressures Raiders to trade for Packers

First, an Instagram story. Then, a tweet. Now a report.

Davante Adams seems to really want Aaron Rodgers in Las Vegas.

On Wednesday, the former Green Bay Packers wide receiver posted a stylized highlight of himself catching a signature shoulder throw from Rodgers. During a Twitter Q&A later Wednesday night, Adams threw more fuel on the fire with this response regarding Rodgers:

Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline added some reporting to the pile on Thursday. According to Pauline, Adams is “lobbying” for the Raiders to make a trade for Rodgers this offseason, which would reunite the quarterback-receiver pair in Las Vegas for at least one more season.

Adams and Rodgers went their separate ways when the All-Pro receiver asked for and was granted a trade to Green Bay last March. He landed with Derek Carr and the Raiders, but a turbulent first season in Las Vegas put Carr on the bench and on his way out of town this offseason, opening the door for the Raiders to make a big move at quarterback.

Rodgers is still deciding his future in football. He can retire, return to Green Bay or request a trade. If a trade is an eventual path, reuniting with Adams in Las Vegas could be an attractive option for a quarterback who has weathered a frustrating 2022 season without Adams.

If it could work out logistically, there’s no reason Adams wouldn’t want Rodgers to join him in Las Vegas. He’s already on a Hall of Fame trail, and another year with a historically great quarterback could bring him one step closer to a gold ring and jacket. But there are still many hurdles to overcome. Does Rodgers want to keep playing? Is a trade out of Green Bay in the works? Do the Raiders as a franchise want it?

Ideally, Rodgers will soon make a decision about his future, and the reading of tea leaves and following breadcrumbs on social media and in news stories will come to an end.
