Raiders Rumors: Derek Carr Explains How He'll Recruit Davante Adams
The current trade drama surrounding Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has prompted questions about Davante Adams' long-term future with the team. Adams has admitted a Rodgers trade would change his outlook heading into free agency next year, and Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr sees an opportunity.
Carr, who played with Adams in college at Fresno State, has an elaborate plan that he thinks will help make the star wideout a Raider in 2022.

Carr has been active in his recruiting efforts as of late and is doubling down on reuniting with his former college teammate. The Raiders QB believes he'll sway Adams after Las Vegas defeats Green Bay in the 2022 Super Bowl. That'd be a surprise on multiple levels, but you can't fault Carr for being optimistic.

Adams starred at Fresno State for two seasons, racking up 233 receptions, 3031 yards and 38 TDs. He went on to be the No. 53 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by Green Bay.

Carr was at Fresno State for five years, crossing paths with Adams during the 2012-13 seasons. He threw for 12,843 yards and 113 TDs in his time with the Bulldogs before going No. 36 overall to the Raiders, also in that 2014 draft.
Las Vegas has missed the playoffs in each of the last four seasons, but stealing Adams in 2022 free agency could be what helps this team return to its glory.
