Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams posted cryptic messages to their social media accounts Friday that had social media losing their minds. Rodgers and Adams ominously both posted the same picture from “The Last Dance” to their Instagram stories. The iconic image shows Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen exchanging fistbumps in what would be their final season with the Chicago Bulls.
Speaking to the media during the Packers shareholders meeting, Packers CEO Mark Murphy was asked about those postings.
“I hope Aaron can win as many rings as Michael. That’d be a heck of an end to his career,” Murphy said.
Sources told the NFL Network on Friday that contract talks between Adams and the Packers regarding a long-term extension have broken off after months of negotiating. It was bad news, but made a bit better for the fan base after it was rpeorted that Rodgers would play for the team in 2021.
Rodgers and Adams have a strong chemistry both on and off the field. Adams told Fox News in an interview last month that he “backs him” entirely, as does the locker room.
“I back him and I support him whatever he does. It’s just kind of how we get down. We’ve always had each other’s backs since I first got here,” he said at the time. “I think everybody’s mindset, everybody is going to love Aaron the same way when he returns, and obviously it’s been a little bit of a confusing situation but there hasn’t been any negative talk or anything like that. Everybody’s behind him.”
