Davante Adams: Aaron Rodgers situation is not something Packers players talk about

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams says he and his teammates aren’t sweating the situation with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is unhappy with the team and has stayed away all offseason.

Adams said players are focused on their own jobs and that they’ll trust Rodgers to take care of his own business.

“Honestly, it’s not even something that we truly talk about like that. It’s just, everybody’s been dialed into what they got to do. There’s enough to worry about with themselves than to be going and worrying about what other guys are doing and what their situation is like, especially when we can’t control any of that,” Adams told Fox News. “I think everybody’s mindset, everybody is going to love Aaron the same way when he returns, and obviously it’s been a little bit of a confusing situation but there hasn’t been any negative talk or anything like that. Everybody’s behind him.”

Adams has said he has Rodgers’ back, but he also recognizes that there’s not a whole lot he or any other Packers player can do to rectify the rift between Rodgers and the Packers.

  1. Yes but will they turn on Rodgers like packer fans when he does not come back?

  2. If I was a Packer player, I would consider him a chump for considering walking out on h team. He is under a contract that he signed as a QB, he is not the coach, GM or President.

  3. Davante: “Everybody is going to love Aaron the same way when he returns.”

    These little slips come out every once in a while when players that speak to Aaron regularly are asked questions. Davante was asked a question and answered it.

    The players and coaches are laser focused on preparing for the 2021 season. Everyone outside of Wisconsin are the ones obsessing on “the Aaron Rodgers situation.”

  4. I’d be impressed if Rodgers decided now would be a good time to pursue something else. He’s a very intelligent guy and his interests are widely varied. He’s already wealthy and will have no problem turning his assets into more assets. I’d tip my hat to the guy. It’s just a game. I couldn’t care less if the Packers “get something for him” or not. I’m already anticipating Love starting on Opening Day, with this team, as-is. If it’s Rodgers under-center with a prepared Love as back-up? Even better.

  5. Imagine being stuck in Green Bay without a shot at winning a Super Bowl… Nearly all of these players depend on Rodgers, whether they’re willing to admit it or not.

    Not true. A lot of Packer fans have commented on the Rodger’s situation here. We also know LaFleor is still pining for his ‘One Hit Blunder’ QB. Even if true that people outside WI are obsessing over Rodgers, it’s what he wants. The ‘Blundah’ seems to thrive off people obsessing over him, which is why he’s still stalling and creating drama, even though he knows he’ll be crawling back to the team this year.

  7. In other words they don’t think he is the “key piece of the puzzle’ and are ready to move on. That’s a great sign.

  8. Yeah right. As to obsession with the “Aaron Rodgers situation”, I just spent 3 days in WI and other than the Bucks, that’s all anyone was talking about — and I don’t think all those folks and media types were outsiders. Having said that, I don’t blame them.

  9. The irony is the Packers have a very good chance to go deep in the playoffs with Rodgers and this squad. That said, they have one of the toughest schedules in the league this year.

  10. Davante having Rodgers back means he also wants the GM fired.
    He did not qualify his position.

  11. Irrelevant without Rodgers, effectively irrelevant with him. One ring in 14 seasons.

  12. Hmmm, Let’s see, Rodgers new contract would most likely be > 50 mil a year + Adams contract will be around 25 mil a year. The rest of the players will take a pay cut for just the honor to be in Green Bay. Looks like a win win in Green Bay.

    Coming from an ACTUAL lifelong Packers fan, I don’t blame AR one bit for being miffed. Between the beginning of his starting tenure when he was getting creamed non-stop due to lack of o-line and RB talent, only 1 season with a top-10 defense (despite year-after-year of 1st round defensive draft picks), lack of WR corp after forcing his best friends Jordy Nelson (would’ve taken veteran minimum)and Randall Cobb out, and now trading up to take a QB. AR has carried Packers for years. I hope he returns, but I don’t blame him. I blame the management. There’s too many checks and balances in GB.

  14. I have not agreed with the draft and trade decisions for a number of years. The Packers’ front office is easily expendable. Rodgers is not. Teams pray for the QB luxury the Packers have had.

  15. Rodgers is disgruntled because he wants a new contract. But he has 3 years left on his. Worse case for a hold out ever. Go Jordan Love! Get those reps in.

  16. Packers have an easy division. I say let Love cut his teeth on those chumps and save AR for the super bowl run

  17. “One ring in 14 seasons.”

    That’s actually pretty good considering the odds of winning a Super Bowl are 1 in 32. There are dozens of NFL teams that would be thrilled to win one every 14 years.

  18. They may not be worried now but if they have to start playing games with Love at QB that will change in a hurry.

  19. The Packers traded up to take Love. So why all the worries? I mean if he is not good, who’s fault is it? I think that its funny that the whole building for the future thing didn’t count on pissing off their meal ticket. Stupid the way the Packer front office handled it.

  20. He’s 13-3 in two straight seasons and is one of the highest paid qbs in the league. What is there to be upset about? Your team led the league in pro-bowlers last year. Stop whining about the gm and put your big boy pants on. You can’t win a championship sitting at home. You’re making a clown of yourself.

  21. Jordan Love was drafted in the first round to replace Aaron Rodgers. Jordan Love is the new Packers QB. Are you trying to tell me that the people running the Packers are so incompetent that they would waste a first round pick, plus a fourth rounder that they gave away to trade up, to pick a guy that wasn’t even going to get on the field? Especially when they already had a reigning MVP QB and were only a player or so away from winning another super bowl? And since nobody in the organization has been fired, it’s obvious that was the plan. What’s to talk about? They have a new QB. Everyone has enough to do to help get the new QB ready. No need for the players to discuss the past. No need to discuss ex-Packers. There’s a season coming up, and it’s a new era in Green Bay. It’s The Jordan Love era. Get used to it.
