Adams has been quite the advocate for QB Aaron Rodgers’ potential move to Las Vegas. The duo, who developed a strong bond during Adams’ time with the Packers, have created a whirlwind of speculation.

While the QB has been coy about the situation, subtlety hasn’t been the WR’s forte. Now, every little hint is beginning to add up to the big picture.

The league’s reformatting of the Pro Bowl game to a flag football contest brought out the playful side of the biggest stars. Adams, who caught a touchdown pass from Tyler Huntley, made quite the statement with his celebration. 

Performing A-Rod’s signature belt celebration, Adams sparked eager fans’ hopes. But this is not the first time in the recent past that the WR has strongly hinted at the possibility of a reunion with his former QB.

Aaron Rodgers has been paying attention to what fans have to say. But the veteran QB has not firmly indicated where he’d be headed. On the other hand, the Raiders’ topmost priority is to find a new leading man. After the drama around Derek Carr’s situation, their need for a QB is at its peak. Davante Adams’ vocal recruitment with regard to Rogers has not gone unnoticed. But, the QB could potentially be headed to the Jets after they acquired Nathaniel Hackett. In what promises to be an eventful offseason, the NFL world will look forward to A-Rod’s decision- if he chooses to stick around for around a season.
