Davante Adams had one of the better situations in the entire league when he was catching passes from Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The two-time All-Pro receiver recorded 123 receptions for 1,553 yards and 11 touchdowns in the 2021 season.
One NFL legend is expecting him to have a drop-off in production and not have nearly the same when Adams suits up in a Raiders’ uniform in the 2022 season.
Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre is expecting a statistical drop-off for Adams.
Favre told TMZ Sports it all comes down to the difference between the quarterbacks, saying he’d be “shocked” if Adams maintains the same numbers after the deal.
“I’d be shocked if he [Adams] had the same year,” Favre told TMZ Sports. “It’s just hard to shift gears especially from a player as prolific as Aaron Rodgers. I think Derek Carr is a very good quarterback but, he’s not in Aaron’s league yet. May never be. And, that’s no disrespect.”
Adams is coming off a 2021 season where he recorded career-high totals in receptions (123) and receiving yards (1,553) while finding the end zone 11 times in 16 games. He earned his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl appearance and second straight first-team All-Pro selection.
For his career, he has tallied 669 catches for 8,121 yards and 73 touchdowns in 116 contests with the Packers.
