Davante Adams: I’m going to do my best to make Derek Carr’s job as easy as possible

The Raiders acquired receiver Davante Adams in March to help make their offense more dynamic.

In Week One, that worked out well. Adams had caught 10 passes on 17 targets for 141 yards with a touchdown.

But in Week Two, Adams caught just two of his seven targets for 12 yards — though one catch was a touchdown.

Quarterback Derek Carr said this week that he’s getting more and more comfortable in head coach Josh McDaniels’ offense. Adams said he wants to make the transition easier for his once and present QB.

“There are so many things that goes into playing quarterback, man, it’s tough,” Adams said, via Paul Gutierrez of ESPN. “Second play of the game, he’s getting hit. Obviously, that’s something that we all got to work on because that helps Derek to be able to do his job and be comfortable back there. Same thing, he’s not going to be that comfortable throwing the ball if the wide receivers are dropping the ball every single play or … if it’s not great calls.

“That’s the toughest position on the field to play. So, I’m damn sure going to the best of my abilities to try to help him make his job as easy as possible … everyone doing their job to make sure he stays clean and has a clear mind to be able to sit back and deliver.”

Adams has been one of the league’s best receivers for years, so his presence on the field alone helps Carr.

But Las Vegas likely will need more production from the connection to defeat Tennessee on the road this week.

  1. All the “want” in the world isn’t going to make him Aaron Rodgers or any other HOF QB! I don’t get his angle here. I know he needs to say nice things about his buddy, but he knows what he is.

  2. I’m a Titans fan and I’ll be pulling for the Raiders this weekend. TN’s Super Bowl window is firmly shut, thanks to the idiotic efforts of one Ryan Tannehill, and I think I speak for the fanbase when I say it’s time for a change. Let the Malik Willis era (long or short as it may be) begin. It’s time to re-load and try again with somebody else at QB, and we need to see if Malik has the moxxy or if a QB needs to be drafted in 2023.

  3. Unfortunately you can’t play OL or defense which is where the Raiders are seriously lacking.

    Raiders are finishing in last place.

  4. Raiders will win this game, it will one of their five (5) wins for the season, lol!
