As Davante Adams continues negotiating a new contract with the Green Bay Packers, he might want to keep his eye on T.J. Watt’s situation in Pittsburgh.
Adams told reporters this week there was “no chance” he would be signing a new contract with the team before Sunday’s season opener, confirming what many believed would be the case despite the popular trend of NFL teams extending their star players ahead of the first game of the regular season.
The Packers and their star wide receiver have been engaged in long-term extension talk on and off for the past several months with Adams firm in his belief that he has “earned the right” to be made the NFL’s highest-paid at his position on his next contract. To that point, the Packers agree with him, but the two sides have different interpretations of how much such a deal should be worth with the team reluctant to hand him DeAndre Hopkins money ($27.25 million in average annual value).
Now, though, it would appear the Packers and Adams disagree on more than just the value.
