Hunter Renfrow: I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Davante Adams

Hunter Renfrow has been quarterback Derek Carr‘s most consistent wide receiver since the Raiders drafted him in 2019.

But now that the club has traded for Davante Adams, defenses will have more to consider in critical situations.

Renfrow and Adams haven’t been working together for long, but they’ve started to develop a solid partnership. Renfrow told reporters on Thursday that some of their chemistry has come from the golf course. But they’ve also spent plenty of time together talking ball.

“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know him,” Renfrow said, via Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “He’s been so good for so long and just to see him every day and the way he works, whether he feels good or not, it’s kind of uncommon from a superstar, to be honest. He’s very, very consistent. That’s really what I’ve taken from him.”

Originally a fifth-round pick, Renfrow was a Pro Bowler for the first time in 2021, leading the Raiders with 103 receptions, 1,038 yards, and nine touchdowns.

He’s entering the last year of his rookie deal, but if he continues to put up numbers like those, he’ll be in line for a significant payday by next March at the latest.

  1. Hunter Renfrow are my favorite kind of players to follow. Not exactly born with all the athletic ability in the world,but makes up for it with sheer determination and hard work. Ends up out working and out producing guys “bigger,faster and more athletic.”

  2. Renfrow reminds me of Ed McCaffery. Wasn’t flashy or the most athletic WR on the field, but he always produced.Pairing him up with Adams is going to give defenses trouble.

  3. He will sign in with the Packers next year! Get to know Aaron Rodgers and all the Super stars they have!

  4. I’m surprised Adams had time for him with all the apparent time he’s spending with his best dud Carr. . . . .
