New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers is in need of some help in his receiving corps, and he may be turning to an old friend to rectify the issue.
Ian Rapoport of NFL media has revealed that Rodgers has been recruiting Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams for a potential reunion.
Of course, Rodgers and Adams spent eight years together with the Green Bay Packers between 2014 and 2021 and comprised one of the most dynamic duos in football.
The Packers then proceeded to trade Adams to the Raiders in March 2022, ending their partnership.
Rodgers was next to leave Green Bay, as the Packers dealt the future Hall-of-Famer to the Jets last offseason. New York was immediately labeled a Super Bowl contender as a result, but Rodgers unfortunately tore his Achilles on the Jets’ first offensive series of 2023, dashing their championship aspirations.
However, Rodgers is apparently healthy and is ready to resume business next year, and he apparently wants Adams in tow for the ride.
The question is, would Las Vegas trade Adams?
Adams is under contract through 2026, so the Raiders are under no obligation to move him. Plus, Adams seems content with new head coach Antonio Pierce.
The 30-year-old wide out expressed some displeasure in Las Vegas earlier in 2023, but as soon as the Raiders moved from Josh McDaniels to Pierce, Adams quieted down.
Las Vegas is trying to contend, so unless New York blows the Raiders away with an offer, it’s hard to imagine Mark Davis and the organization taking the bait.
It may not end up being Adams, but it seems safe to say that Aaron Rodgers will end up luring someone to the Jets this offseason.
