We’ve been critical of Davante Adams in the past, but that kid is playing at a high level this year. He played at a high level last year.
He’s going to get paid and rightfully so. He is the only guy both Aaron Rodgers and Brett Hundley trust. He’s the only receiver performing regardless of who the Green Bay Packers quarterback is.
Although Randall Cobb could be like, hey Brett, throw me a ball and then we’ll see.
But Davante Adams wrote a great piece for The Players’ Tribune about the five best corners he’s faced. That in itself is interesting, but the part we wanted to share was this.
I know it’s been a rough year, an up-and-down year. Losing number 12 was obviously really, really tough. But believe me when I say — I’m confident we can still continue to improve, adjust, grind and win games.
So I wanted to take a second to just say thank you — thank you for continuing to show up for us. Thank you for forgiving us on bad days and supporting us through tough spots. It’s not in the DNA of this team to give up. You’ve always had our back, and it’s one of the things that makes me proudest to be a Green Bay Packer.
As a Packers fan, you know, no one is ever going to stop showing up. Win four games, we’ll still show up… but let’s not only win just four games. Let’s not ever do that.
Davante, despite struggling in his first couple seasons, has come on like gangbusters in his last two. And it doesn’t matter who throws him the ball — although I would assume he would prefer it were AR — he still makes plays.
That kid is going to get paid and he should get paid. The offseason question is at whose expense? Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb?
The Packers can’t pay three receivers $10 million a year.
Question for another time, though. For now, check this out from Davante Adams.
