Monday brought word that the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers are closing in on an agreement that would ensure Rodgers is with the team for at least the 2021 season.

That means the coming year could be Rodgers’ last dance in Green Bay, but the quarterback’s revised deal could lower the odds that it is also wide receiver Davante Adams‘ final run with the team.

Adams is in the final year of his contract and a report late last week said that he and the team were no longer talking about a new deal, so that seemed like a real possibility. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Adams is now open to resuming discussions about a contract with the team.

Per the report, the reworked deal for Rodgers would free up cap space in future seasons to use toward an extension for Adams. That doesn’t mean that the two sides will come to an agreement, but the outlook for Adams continuing his run with the Packers is looking better than it did a few days ago.

  1. These players, Bahk, Cobb, Adams & ARod must be laughing their butts off at all these gossip stories.

  2. Adams is jealous. He wants the Packer front office to grovel to him too.

  3. So it was the prospect of having to play with Jordan Love after all?

  4. Adams wants Rodgers to help raise his value so he can be the highest paid WR. Winning means nothing! Only about money.

  5. Adams was already committed to playing this season, which means if Rodgers was NOT playing in GB this year, Adam’s would have been playing with Jordan Love as QB. This certainly would have dropped his value for next season. But Rodgers coming back is only guaranteed for THIS season, so its interesting that Adams is interested in contract extension talks again, without knowing if Rodgers will continue to be there beyond this season. Think about it. There’s something more to this story that we don’t know, or Adams really hasn’t thought this through.

  6. Meanwhile, Bears, Lions, and Vikings fans have been seen out on ledges all over their respective cities.

  7. If the Vikings, Bears, and Lions don’t do well it’s due to their own failures. They each play the Packers only 2 games in a season, so in reality, those teams are their own worst enemies. The Packers so far have ruled the NFC north but every year is a different animal. Time will tell.

  8. Adam Schefter has shown over and over and over that he has no idea what he’s talking about. He is as big a fountain of misinformation as the Orange Grump of Mar-a-Lago.

  9. Can not blame Adams or Rodgers the regular fan only sees the players while the front office
    types make or break the team look at the job done in Cleveland these past few years especially since Berry took over i’d trade for him anyday while were stuck with our clueless GM .
