Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers were exceptional together as members of the Green Bay Packers. The two may have been the best quarterback-wide receiver duo in the league.

Adams made five Pro Bowls as a member of the Packers, and his last three injury-free seasons there went for over 4200 yards. And, he was first-team All Pro in 2020 and 2021, while Rodgers captured the MVP award in 2021.

But, the Packers traded Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders before last season, leaving Rodgers with a cast of characters at wide receiver that were less than inspiring. The Packers did draft receivers Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, but they combined for about 2/3 of Adams’s production. The Green Bay Packers missed the playoffs, going 8-9 and losing in embarrassing fashion to the Detroit Lions in week 18.

As for Adams, he had a great year in Las Vegas. He had an even 100 catches for 1516 yards and 14 touchdowns. But, the Raiders had a disappointing year themselves. They went 6-11 for first-year head coach Josh McDaniels. And, they’ve decided to move on from quarterback Derek Carr.

There’s speculation that Rodgers may want out of Green Bay, too. So, could the Raiders be a potential landing spot? Davante Adams hopes so. He spoke about it at the Pro Bowl.

As fiery rumors abound regarding quarterbacks on the move this offseason, count Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams among those happy to stoke the flames.

“Duh,” Adams told NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe at Sunday’s Pro Bowl Games when asked if he had started recruiting former teammate Aaron Rodgers to the Silver and Black. “Why would anybody not do that. I mean 100 percent, that’s my guy. Wishful thinking, but we’ll see what happens.”

Rodgers has been clear he is still ruminating over his future, which could include retirement or returning to the Packers, but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from churning with the Packers having missed the postseason.

Maybe we will, in fact, see a reunion next year in Las Vegas.
