Davante Adams really wanted out of Green Bay

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver, Davante Adams.

Ok, it is going to take a little bit of time to get used to that but as you know, Adams, who is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, is no longer on the Green Bay Packers.

That’s right, Adams gave up playing with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to head to Vegas to play with Raiders QB, Derek Carr.

Most figured the Raiders made Adams an offer he could not refuse but it sounds like his decision was not about money.

Davante Adams admits Packers offered him more money than the Raiders

On Thursday, Davante Adams spoke to reporters and when he was asked about the speculation that he actually turned down more money from the Packers before eventually being traded to Las Vegas, Adams admitted that was true.

“You guys have heard Green Bay offered this which is higher than what I was [going to make with the Raiders] and all of that. And, yeah, I’ll say it, it was true. OK, it was true,” Adams said. “But there’s much more that goes into it. And family is a big part of it for me. So, geographically being here, it makes it a lot easier for me to stay connected to my family year-round.

“And this isn’t Year Two, or I’m not trying to necessarily fight for a job or anything like that to where you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do — you’ve got to stay out there. I had the choice and the choice was for me to come here and raise my family on the West Coast and come out here and have some fun in the sun.”

We think Adams will be just fine with his five-year, $141.25 million deal from the Raiders.

Nation, do you think Davante Adams made the correct choice to leave for Las Vegas?
