Davante Adams is like an open book these days, as he has been speaking freely about his old stomping grounds in Green Bay while getting ready to embark on his new life in Las Vegas.
During his media appearance, Adams went in-depth on his decision to leave the Green Bay Packers while making it clear that he still appreciates Aaron Rodgers.
The star wide receiver is going viral this week when he made an interesting comparison between the two. While most fans probably think Rodgers is the vastly superior quarterback, Adams doesn’t see it like that.
“As far as talent and ability, it’s really similar, if I’m keeping it real,” Adams said. “They throw the ball a lot different. Derek’s gonna fire it in there, and you gonna know that thing’s coming quick. Aaron’s got the ability to tighten that core up and flick that ball to you.”
Adams did point out how the QB’s have slight differences in how they deliver the ball, before eventually getting back to discussing the other similarities he sees between Carr and Rodgers.
“So the release is a lot different, but being able to get the ball to you late, if they see you coming out of a break, not many quarterbacks can get it to you before you get to the sideline if you’re outside the numbers already,” he said. “Having two guys like that with really strong arms, and understand the game, the mental part of it, is another similarity that they have. They both obsess over it and they know everything that’s going on out there.”
Adams signed a reported five-year, $141.25 million deal when he was traded to Las Vegas, which at the time made him the league’s highest-paid receiver.
A five-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro, Adams caught 123 passes for 1,553 yards with 11 touchdowns for the Packers last season.
