GREEN BAY — If true, the uncertain status of Packers’ wide receiver Davante Adams may have found some certainty.
Multiple reports say Adams has been traded to the Las Vegas Raiders.
NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport said on Twitter that Adams’ new contract is worth $141.25 million over five years, according to his sources. He gets an average of $28.25 average per year.
Rapoport says the Packers are receiving a 1st and a 2nd rounder in this year’s draft in exchange.
ESPN reporter Rob Demovsky also is reporting the trade.
The Packers had assigned Adams their franchise tag, keeping him off the free agent market.
But Adams wasn’t happy with the move and reportedly said he wouldn’t play this year for Green Bay.
Yet to be determined is the reaction of Aaron Rodgers, who has made Adams his No. 1 target in recent years.
During last year’s off season, Rodgers made it known that he wasn’t happy with some of the personnel moves made by the front office.
However, after signing his own deal making him the highest paid player in the NFL, Rodgers likely knew this day was coming.
Just two weeks ago, when Adams was rumored to have bought a $12 million mansion in Vegas, many Raiders fans and observers saw it as a sign that the potential free-agent wideout — and buddy of Raiders QB Derek Carr — was getting fitted for his silver and black uniform.
