Davante Adams apparently took a pay cut to play with his college teammate Derek Carr in Las Vegas.

On Thursday night, Adams was traded by the Packers to the Las Vegas Raiders and instantly signed a new multi-year contract to become the highest-paid wide receiver in the league.

After the trade, various reports claimed the Packers offered Adams a massive contract, but he declined because he wanted to play elsewhere. Adams’ agents confirmed those reports by stating the Packers offered Adams more money, but he wanted to play with Carr.

During an interview last year, Adams indicated that it would be his “dream” to play with Carr as a pro.
