  • The Packers traded wide receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders.
  • In retur, Green Bay netted a first-round pick and second-round pick next year’s draft.
  • NFL fans have since pointed out that the Jets got more picks when they traded safety Jamal Adams.

Despite the fact that the Packers resigned two-time defending NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers to a three-year, $150 million deal, All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams still didn’t want to stay in Green Bay as the 29-year-old pass-catcher has been dealt to the Las Vegas Raiders.

In exchange for Adams — who has racked up 669 catches for 8,121 yards and 73 touchdowns during his eight seasons in the National Football League — the Packers received a first-round and second-round draft pick in the 2023 NFL Draft from the Raiders, which is a relatively small price to pay for a player many consider to be the best at his position.

In fact, the package that the Packers received in exchange for their star wideout is so mediocre that it’s actually making the New York Jets — yes, the JETS — look good, as NFL fans have since pointed out that the moribund AFC East franchise got more in the Jamal Adams trade.
