Davante Adams wouldn’t be opposed to Packers adding a wideout

The trade deadline is nearly upon us and some eyes are on Green Bay to see if the Packers make a move to add to their receiving corps.

Any addition to the lineup would work alongside Davante Adams and the Packers’ leading receiver addressed the possibility during a Tuesday press conference. Adams didn’t say it was a must, but did see where such a move could benefit the offense.

“I wouldn’t say it’s a need, but I don’t think it’s any secret that could help us, potentially. So I wouldn’t be opposed to it,” Adams said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Adams has 43 catches for 502 yards and seven touchdowns in five games this season. The team’s other wideouts have 38 catches for 622 yards and four touchdowns. The latter numbers would likely be higher if Allen Lazard had not missed the last four games after having core muscle surgery, but there would seem to be a place for another wideout even with Lazard back in action.

We’ll find out soon if the Packers feel that way.

  1. Like who cares what he thinks. He should be lucky none of the other receivers are worth a lick or he woudnt have the numbers he does. Scantling drops every other ball and runs crazy routes. St Brown get hurt tripping on the chalk lines and when he does have a chance he drops the ball, ditto just like he did in college. Lazard who I like in accident prone, the TE’s have to do more bloking then route running so he has the field to himself.

  2. Think how much better they’d be if they hadn’t wasted that pick on Love and took a WR

    LOL!

  3. Well, he is seeing constant double teams because he’s lining up opposite from practice squad WRs.

  4. Too bad they didn’t have a 1st or 2nd round pick to use on a wide receiver last draft

  5. The Packers did pick up Devin Funchess in the offseason but he was the lone covid hold out. Adding another would either be a short term lease or make for a crowded WR group when Funchess returns. Its a tough spot given a receiver typically garners a 4th round or better draft pick.

    So many inaccuracies with your comment. To begin, all Packers fan and I care about what he has to say. Second, many of the top corners in the league have stated Adams is the most talented when it comes to release and route running. Third, it’s actually MORE impressive he has the numbers that he does because most of the other WR’s on the team are mediocre. Hence, leading to more double-teams. You’re welcome.

  7. GB won’t use the reported 2nd rounder to get Will Fuller because GB intends on using that pick on yet another no-name DB who will be off the team in their 4th year. Sad reality.

  8. Hey You injury prone diva, trying playing 16 full games before you cast stones in a glass house !

  9. What is with the obsession with receivers????? The bend-but-don’t-win defense is the problem. Fix that first. The offense is fine. They have two “solids” at RB and WR injured and our. Fix the freakin’ defense.

    They took Aaron Rodgers in the 1st round when QB wasn’t a pressing need with Favre as the starter, and that worked out. I don’t really see how this was any different. The problem is that in a very deep WR draft, they didn’t take wideouts at all.

    I’m not really sure you understand what that expression means…

  12. Yeah, he called out the the other WRs for being soft! I thought the Wrs played good in Sunday. Cant believe Ezra Cleveland pushed Clark around like a rag doll.

  13. Them Packas aren’t nearly as good as my Vikings at drafting wide receivers. We had Laquon Treadwell, Troy Williamson, Sidney Rice . . . we’re always winning.

    Here’s the difference… Rodgers was a in the running to be the #1 pick and for some reason fell. Also, when they drafted Rodgers; Favre was waffling between playing and retiring whereas Rodgers has publicly committed to the Packers for the next 5-6 years.

    Also, just because they caught lightning once with Rodgers doesn’t mean they did it again. It’s like saying “all teams should wait until the 5th to draft a QB because of Brady.
