The Las Vegas Raiders acquired five-time Professional Bowl vast receiver Davante Adams in a blockbuster commerce with the Inexperienced Bay Packers on Thursday, based on a number of reviews.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter says the deal will internet the Packers “two prime 2022 picks,” and Ian Rapoport of NFL Community stated Adams will signal a five-year, $141.25 million deal with the Raiders following the commerce.
Adams, 29, will reunite with Raiders quarterback Derek Carr a few decade after the duo put up large numbers collectively at Fresno State. In two seasons with Carr, Adams caught 38 landing passes and racked up greater than 3,000 receiving yards.
In eight seasons with the Packers, Adams caught 669 passes for 8,121 yards with 73 touchdowns. He earned Professional Bowl nods in every of the final 5 seasons and was a First-Crew All-Professional within the final two years. Earlier this offseason, Inexperienced Bay used the franchise tag to retain Adams, however he reportedly knowledgeable the workforce that he had little interest in taking part in the 2022 season below the tag.

As a substitute, Adams will get a contract from the Raiders that makes him the best=paid receiver in NFL historical past.
