Over the years, we’ve heard talk about a slew of wide receivers linked to the New England Patriots. Quite honestly, in the past 10 years, the only ones of note who have landed in New England have been Josh Gordon, Antonio Brown, Brandin Cooks and Mohamed Sanu.
Quite honestly, none of those acquisitions have worked well for the Patriots. That said, a new major name has been linked to New England, and it is Green Bay Packers all-world WR Davante Adams.
If you’re wondering if the Patriots can afford Adams, the answer is yes.
The Packers and Adams have reportedly ceased their efforts to work out an extension, per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, which could mean Green Bay is open to trading arguably the best wide receiver in football.
At this point, we don’t know if Adams will participate at training camp. According to Rapoport, Adams wants to be the NFL’s highest-paid wide receiver, but the Packers apparently aren’t willing to approach those numbers.
We don’t know if the Patriots would be willing to pay Adams what the Packers apparently aren’t, but New England salary cap guru Miguel Bezan, it is possible.
