The Raiders have acquired All-Pro WR Davante Adams via trade from the Green Bay Packers. Adams will reportedly sign a five-year, $141.25 million extension that will tie him to the franchise for the foreseeable future.
Adams is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL and he will now reunite with QB Derek Carr, whom Adams played college football with at Fresno State.
The Raiders will send their 2022 first and second-round picks in exchange for Adams. Adams was previously franchise-tagged by the Packers this offseason, and although the Packers recently extended league MVP QB Aaron Rodgers, his former top weapon will be wearing Silver in Black in 2021 in the desert with head coach Josh McDaniels calling plays on the sideline.
Since 2018, Adams leads the league receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. Adams has spent his entire career with the Packers after being drafted in the second-round of the 2014 NFL Draft, only 17 picks after the Raiders drafted QB Derek Carr.
Adams joining the Raiders is among the headlining moves of the entire NFL offseason to this point. Wednesday, the Raiders signed pass-rusher Chandler Jones and acquired CB Rock Ya-Sin from the Colts in exchange for DE Yannick Ngakoue.
