Just when you thought the Aaron Rodgers news wasn’t bad enough on Packers fans, Davante Adams went and made it worse with his own news.
On Monday, the Green Bay Packers wide receiver spoke out about the ongoing drama with the franchise and its quarterback Aaron Rodgers during an appearance on Colin Cowherd’s “The Herd.”
Adams said he was on the golf course when he got the news of Rodgers demanding a trade and being upset with team General Manager Brian Gutekunst.
“It wasn’t the best news to hear while I was trying to have a good time. It scared me a little bit,” Adams told Cowherd. “A lot of things go into this so I was like, ‘Let’s just calm down, see what’s going on, we will talk to him, and then ultimately try to figure out what’s going on.'”
Adams added that if Rodgers left the team, it could “potentially” affect his future with the Packers as well.
“We’ve established a lot together. It would change a lot,” he said. “It doesn’t mean I’d be gone, but I’d definitely have to do some extra thinking if my guy wasn’t here.”
The rift between Rodgers and the team started with them drafting QB Jordan Love and then Gutekunst releasing wide receiver Jake Kumerow following the 2019 season shortly after the veteran quarterback shared his praise for the wideout.
The reigning NFL MVP is said to be so dug in on his stance that he would contemplate retirement.
