Davante Adams has been vocal about his admiration for Aaron Rodgers. In a recent interview, Adams said he’d “scream on the mountaintop that I got his (Rodgers) back.”

But there’s something else that Adams said that might give Packers fans sleepless nights. If the prospect of Aaron Rodgers leaving the franchise wasn’t enough to deal with already, Adams claiming that the future of his QB could potentially affect his career choices is something that will surely make the Packers faithful lose their mind.

Aaron Rodgers’ decision could affect Davante Adams

While Davante Adams declared that he would turn up for Packers’ training camp regardless of what happens with Aaron Rodgers, the QB’s future is sure to affect the wide receiver’s as well.

“I would always welcome playing with him again. I think it would unlock some things in both of us that people haven’t seen yet. And I’m always open to that and I will be recruiting very hard. So when that time comes, it will be a full-court press,” said Carr.

Carr is well aware that a trade for Davante Adams is a near impossibility. The wide receiver is ready to play for the Packers in 2021 and the franchise too will not be entertaining any calls for their star wideout.
