Packers trade Davante Adams to Raiders in blockbuster deal
We’re pinching ourselves, there are no words to express our feelings on how happy we are that the Green Bay Packers trade Davante Adams to our Las Vegas Raiders. There really are no words…just loud, positive, screaming and shouting. The Raiders just got the best receiver in the league!
The AFC West sure has beefed up in the past couple weeks with championship quarterback Russell Wilson going to the Denver Broncos and veteran pass rusher Khalil Mack heading to the Los Angeles Chargers. Now the Green Bay Packers trade Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. Our division is stacked.
In the Devante Adams to Raiders deal, Las Vegas sent their first-round No.22 overall pick and second-round No.53 overall pick to Green Bay for the 2022 NFL Draft. With the addition of the No.28 and No. 59 overall picks, the Packers now have 4 picks in the top 60.
On the side of the Silver & Black, Davante Adams will be signing a five-year contract with the Las Vegas Raiders that will average out to about $28.5 million a year with $67.5 million fully guaranteed. Adams, 29, is a five-time Pro Bowler (2017-2021) and a two-time First Team selection (2020-2021).
All with The Pack, Adams has recorded 669 receptions for 8,121 yards and 73 touchdowns in a total of 116 total games with 109 starts. Even catching from one of the best quarterbacks of all time, that’s still very impressive. Last season he set a franchise single-season record of 1,553 receiving yards and 123 receptions. He also holds the most receiving touchdowns in a season in Packers history with 18 in 2020.
Packers trade Davante Adams which reunites the superstar wide receiver with his Fresno State teammate, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. As a native from Redwood City, California, Adams started all 26 games for Fresno State from 2012 to 2013, racking up 233 receptions for 3,030 yards and 38 touchdowns. Despite only playing for two seasons, he set college records for receptions (233) and receiving touchdowns (38) while recording 13 individual 100+ yard games throughout his time with the Bulldogs.
