Green Bay Packers defender Aaron Rodgers has not said anything about Davante Adams’ departure, which is surprising considering their history.
Despite their recent split, Davante Adams loves Aaron Rodgers, and Aaron Rodgers loves Davante Adams.
Rodgers said in December 2021 that Adams is the best player he has ever shared on the pitch during his 17-year career.
Adams made it clear he felt the same way as soon as he got down to Las Vegas, making it clear he was well aware he had to play with the greatest quarterback of all time.
“It was really an idea until it was implemented. I play in Green Bay, it’s a great situation, having the greatest quarterback to play the game, it’s a dream in itself,” Adams said of the Packers’ departure. “This is not the first time a player with an impact on an organization has had to leave. I feel in the end it benefits both sides.”
It worked for Adams, who received a five-year, $140 million contract and the chance to see family in California more often. Perhaps not so much for Rodgers, who also lost Marquez Valdes-Scantling to the Kansas City Chiefs shortly after.
With so much respect and appreciation between these two greats, it might come as a surprise that Rodgers didn’t say anything about Adams’ decision to join the Raiders. Calling and greeting a new teammate and saying goodbye when a beloved teammate leaves is a courtesy in the dressing room.
Rodgers may have spoken to Adams privately, but it is unusual for him to not have a proper goodbye in public. Russell Wilson said goodbye to the Seahawks and his own GOAT teammate, Bobby Wagner. Randall Cobb shared his goodbyes to Adams via Instagram. Seeing as Rodgers, who is no stranger to making statements on social media nor publicly expressing gratitude, said it’s not surprising considering his relationship with Adams.
Aaron Rodgers remains silent on Davante Adams’ move
As Adams said, he appreciates his time at Green Bay, but professional football is ultimately still a business. Not because he chose the Raiders over the Packers but because he wanted the kind of contract Rodgers was offered during his final years at Green Bay. As great as the two have been together, it’s not necessarily fair that Adams should rank the team while Rodgers enjoys the ‘Rodgers Ratio’. As talented as Rodgers is, his two consecutive MVP titles should be shared with Adams more than anyone else on the team.
Considering Adams’ huge contributions to the team, it seems he deserves a well-deserved goodbye from Rodgers, who spoke about everything from his COVID beliefs to his Halo rivalry. in the quarterback room. When Rodgers thanked his teammates recently in a cryptic Instagram post about his future, he mentioned the other teammates by name, but not Adams (although Adams is featured in the game). one of his pictures).
Adams also doesn’t mention Rodgers or feature him on Instagram, but he usually doesn’t: most of his photos are of himself and his family.
It should be noted that although he hasn’t posted anything himself, Rodgers did like the Packers’ goodbye to Adams on Twitter.
Not everything can be inferred from social media, but these platforms offer some insight into the minds of professional athletes. As a dressing-room leader and Green Bay icon, Rodgers should have been the first to express how much he appreciates Adams and wishes him success on his journey — especially especially when Rodgers is thinking for himself about freedom and should understand how difficult these things are. decision is possible.
Finally, Rodgers will take questions about Adams during press conferences, and he will certainly go on to say that he is the greatest man he has ever seen. However, his silence following Adams’ departure is odd to say the least.
