While many scoff at the idea of even watching the Pro Bowl, it was nice to see Davante Adams get some more play time before next season. Adams was the only player from the Green Bay Packers to decide to play this year. As expected, he got off to a great start and then led the NFC in passing yards for the game. Aaron Rodgers was also invited to play but he opted to spend time with Danica Patrick in New Zealand so it’s hard to blame the guy.
The Packers Twitter feed has a great clip of Adams with a reception for a 36-yard gain:
The pass was thrown by Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. Adams is coming off a very strong year with the Packers – he set three career highs with 1,386 yards, 13 TDs, and 111 receptions. He was set to top Sterling Sharpe’s record for receptions but missed the final game of the season against the Detroit Lions due to an injury. This absolved him of any blame from the embarrassing final score of 31 – 0.
The weather was terrible and Davante had this to say after the game:
Final score was AFC 26 NFC 7. Just in case you’re wondering, there are no injuries to report for Adams after participating in the game.
Correction: Rodgers is with Patrick not Munn. Spent too much time lately sorting through the old archives…
