Davante Adams: I’m behind Aaron Rodgers 100 percent

Packers receiver Davante Adams was on the golf course when he first heard the news that Aaron Rodgers and the Packers were embroiled in a standoff.

It ruined his day.

“I didn’t really know what to think. Hadn’t really spoke to him,” Adams told Colin Cowherd on Monday. “It wasn’t the best news to receive when I’m out there trying to have a good time. It scared me a little bit. But there are a lot of things that go into this, so I was like, ‘Let’s just calm down. Let’s see what’s going on.’ We’ll talk to him and then ultimately try to figure out what’s going on with this thing.”

A week ago, Adams tweeted, “Gotta appreciate what u got while ya got it!” Rodgers liked the tweet.

Adams said he since has talked to Rodgers, who has “got to iron out a few things.”

“I defend my guys on everything, man,” Adams told Cowherd. “We all know it’s a pretty dense business. There’s a lot that happens, a lot that goes on here. Just like any other job you want to be happy. Once you have gained that respect, you want to be treated with that type of respect. There are certain things that I can’t speak on specifics, but there are certain things that he wants and maybe the club wasn’t so excited about living up to right away. That can affect a guy who’s done so much for an organization. He’s put his body, and really laid his life on the line out there for that team and for his teammates and everything. I’ve been behind him 100 percent throughout the whole thing. Obviously, I’m praying everything works out and that we get him back and we can continue to go out there and do stuff like what you see on the screen there, because it’s a lot of fun doing that.”

It remains to be seen where the Rodgers’ standoff goes from here, but Adams hopes he has his quarterback on the field with him in 2021.

  1. He also said that he’s pretty much gone after this year if Rodgers leaves. Basically a message to GB to get this done or else.

  2. Are you sure you wanna back a guy who’s choked as many times in the playoffs as Rodgers has? I mean the guy has the same number of Superbowls as Doug Williams

  3. Devante Adams is undoubtedly THE Best receiver in the game. GB better not bungle this. Pay the man and enjoy the rest of his Hall of Fame career.

    Go ahead and retire Aaron, im sure Green Bay will be fine.

    —————————————————————
    Spoken like a true vikings fan.

  5. Advance Adams: I’m behind Aaron Rodgers 100 percent (as in following him out the door out of Green Bay)

  6. Adams is a really good player and i will always route for him because he fresno guy, but he wont look nearly as good without Rodgers. He owes Rodgers alot. Adams will be getting a monster when his contract is up because of Rodgers.

    I think Adams is a bit overrated, but i would for him to come to philly next year. Adams and Smith would be a nice combo .

  7. He has one more year on his deal. I think it more likely he gets a payday from Green Bay if Rodgers is off the team. The cap is strapped next year already without a new deal and nothing short of a new deal will get #12 back.

  8. I mean the guy has the same number of Superbowls as Doug Williams

    That’s one more than Barry Sanders, Dan Marino, Eric Dickerson and the entire 60+ year history of your team.

  9. This is a pretty strong indication that the players are behind Rodgers, something the front office is and should remain aware of.

  10. Imagine a wide receiver not being excited about catching passes from Jordan Love instead of Aaron Rodgers.

  11. Davante Adams: I’m behind Aaron Rodgers 100 percent

    Every target to Adams will be a lateral?

    Yeah! and 1 less than Manning, and we’re talking Eli. Won’t even mention how many more less than Brady. We’ll wait and see if Rodgers can catch up to Eli first before going there. 😂🤣😂🤣

  13. So, Aaron reportedly told all his teammates he didn’t plan to and didn’t want to come back to the team. But Davante says the first he heard of it was when he was on the golf course and the report came out.

    Still wonder if this whole thing is overblown?

    I again, can’t wait to see Aaron and the whole squad at training camp.👍

  14. If Rodgers wants to win, why doesn’t he take a page from Brady’s book and restructure to free up room to bring in more talent.

    Is this about money or winning?

  15. I missed the NFC championship game vs the Bucs. Did Adams play in that one? Heard about the 3 and out, and LeFleur opting to go for the field goal. Did Rodgers and Adams not connect?

  16. As the cheese head turns. 1:00 pm est, 12:00 cst. Staring Aaron Rodgers, Devante Adams, Shailene Woodley and special guest stars the Green Bay Packer fans

  17. Why do people talk of Rodgers’ SB wins as if this sport is 1 v 1? Is it just laziness? I watched HaHa Clinton Dix and Brandon Bostick piss away Rodger’s good game in Seattle in 2014. In 2016 Kap made our D look ridiculous, it wasn’t even a contest. Then repeat Mostert again in 19. This year Rodgers had a better game than Brady and scored 3 TD’s on a defense that held Mahommes to none. Yet all we hear is Rodgers is a choker. It’s just assanine.

  18. Hey pkrlvr!Quit taking the bait man.Every Viking fan on this site complain about Rodgers being a choker,when in fact they are the epitome of chokers.Playoff and SB losses is all they have on their resume!They should call give a banner to losing team in the SB and call it the GrantLevy banner!They would have something to hang in their stadium.
    They will even try to cheapen the 9 championships before the SB era.LOL
    Vikings fans will never understand that they are the least respected fans in football.Do you ever hear about Vilings fans being mentioned as “the best”?Always Packers,Steelers,,Browns,Bills,even the damn Cowboys have better fan base!
    Bears are a real rivalry filled with history,hate,but yet respect.Lions are a team you want to come back because they suffered so long and deserve it for their fans.
    Unfortunately pklvr sites like this are the only outlet for the Viking fans to throw shade towards the 13 time NFL champions!The SB trophy is named after our coach and our city is called Titletown.What else needs to be said?

  19. Adams must feel betrayed because Gutz didnt inform him he is drafting a wide reciever in the draft.no wonder he wants out,cant have a player disgruntled by your draft pick after all.

  20. Since it is never A-Aron’s fault when they lose in the playoffs. He gets no credit for the one hit wonder wild card run.

  21. But but but…..Packer fans told us Aaron hasn’t a said anything public, so maybe this is all fake news. Of course Adams supports Rodgers. He knows Aaron holds grudges and will never throw him passes again if he doesn’t support him.

    Your QB is about to leave, and you’re ranting about the Vikings? Strange. Try to focus on the articles topic.

    First, it’s SB win. Not wins. And it was over a decade ago. And Rodgers absolutely choked last year. He’s great in the regular season. No question but post season? He had one good run in one year. Again, over a decade ago.

    Well, somebody is only hearing what he wants to hear. Adams literally just said there is a problem and Rodgers may not return.
