Chargers News: Keenan Allen Recruiting Davante Adams
Earlier in the offseason, Green Bay Packers wideout Davante Adams tried recruiting Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen, saying that the duo "would go 300 yards a game." However, the uncertainty surrounding QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers organization has now led to Allen trying to recruit Adams to the Chargers.
Allen tweeted to Adams on Friday afternoon, telling him "come on home brother." The Packers WR was born in Redwood City, California and attended college at Fresno State.

Allen's tweet also comes on the heels of NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reporting on Friday that the Packers and Adams have ceased contract extension talks. While things were looking promising before, Rapoport said that the two sides are "in a bad place."
If Adams and the Packers can't reach a deal, it makes sense why Allen would try enticing his friend into joining the Chargers — either via trade or free agency next offseason. The Packers wideout is a game-changer, as proven by his 1,374 receiving yards and league-leading 18 touchdowns last season. Adding that sort of player into a young Chargers team could be the recipe for success. After all, Allen is already a legitimate No. 1 wideout in the NFL. Having two pass-catchers of that caliber on the same team would give opposing teams a lot of headaches.
The Chargers currently have +3100 odds (T-16th) to win Super Bowl 56 next season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. However, adding someone like Adams to the roster would surely see those odds increase. Nevertheless, only time will tell if Allen's recruitment skills can pay off.
