3 Most Likely Davante Adams Free Agent Destinations
One of the top players in the upcoming free agent class has to be Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams. The two-time All Pro has surpassed 1,300 yards in three of the last four seasons and has totaled 47 touchdowns during that span. He has been nothing short of dominant with the Packers.
There's no doubt that Adams will draw a ton of interest from NFL teams looking to upgrade the wide receiver position. After all, he has posted 93.2 receiving yards per game since the start of 2018. With that in mind, here are three of the most likely free agent destinations for Adams.
Davante Adams Free Agency
1. Green Bay Packers
It's best to get this one out of the way first. Adams could easily re-sign with the Packers in the offseason given quarterback Aaron Rodgers decides to stick around. Adams was drafted Green Bay in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft and has built his career at Lambeau Field. The coaching staff he has worked with has guided him to becoming one of the best route-runners in the league. Adams hasn't gotten a taste of the Super Bowl in his career and running it back in 2022 may be his best opportunity to get there. The Packers are going to have to shell out some cash in order to get a deal done, which is tough considering their current cap situation, but the front office should do anything it can to keep their WR1 around.
2. Las Vegas Raiders
Seeing Adams head out west to play with the Las Vegas Raiders would not be a surprising development. He grew up in the state of California and spent his college days at Fresno State. In fact, Adams played two seasons with quarterback Derek Carr on the Bulldogs. The two Pro Bowlers have expressed their interests in playing together in the past and this may be the perfect time to pair up. The Raiders need a spark at WR after Hunter Renfrow was the only pass-catcher to surpass 700 yards this past season. Adding a 29-year-old stud to the mix would give this offense the downfield threat it is missing. The Raiders are projected to have over $27 million in cap space available, which means they have the capital to sign Adams.
3. Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins are going to be connected to almost every free agent wide receiver this offseason and for good reason. Miami is projected to have the most cap space available of any NFL team and have a glaring need at the position. Keep in mind this is a team that went out and signed Will Fuller for $10 million last summer before injuries caused him to play in just 55 snaps. The Dolphins are not afraid to pay up and just missed out on the playoffs for the second consecutive season. Miami should be hungry to improve a passing attack that averaged just 214.8 yards through the air per game (No. 17 in NFL). Signing Adams is certainly one way to shake things up in a crowded AFC East division.
