Among some of the more interesting storylines that have transpired in the NFL this offseason is the displeasure of some of the Green Bay Packers’ biggest stars with the organization.
Aaron Rodgers is the most notable name in this storyline, as he had made it known how unhappy he is with the organization, according to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter. In an odd turn of events, he did decide to re-negotiate his contract, but he will be a free agent sooner rather than later after the re-negotiation, per Schefter.
But just when it looked like Green Bay dodged a bullet, their star wideout also showed his hand when it comes to his feelings towards the Packers.
Wide receiver Davante Adams, who is in the final year of his four-year, $58 million contract, has broken off contract extension talks with the Packers, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. The two sides apparently have reached a place in which “each side has refused to move off its negotiating spot,” per USA Today’s Tom Silverstein.
This means that the best-case scenario for Green Bay is Adams plays the 2021 season in a Packers uniform and then walks during free agency in 2022. But seeing that Adams is an All-Pro wide receiver coming off a season in which he accumulated 115 catches, 1,374 yards, and 18 touchdowns, getting some capital for Adams before he walks in 2022 may be in the best interest of the Packers.
