The Green Bay Packers had a really tough decision to make. Either let their best and news-loving quarterback Aaron Rodgers go and split the money, or keep Aaron at all costs and then try to cut costs as much as possible. They chose the first option and it would be fair to say that they might be a little disappointed.
Davante Adams is undoubtedly one of the best wide receivers out there. So when he announced he wouldn’t be playing under the franchise label, something had to give way since Green Bay had already sunk a lot of money into keeping Rodgers.
“Packers valued Aaron Rodgers more than Davante Adams”: Keyshawn Johnson
Keyshawn Johnson recently had a few things to say about Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers on The KJM Show. He said Adams would have left the Packers whether or not Green Bay kept Aaron Rodgers. He explained that Adams was fed up with Aaron Rodgers drama.
“Davante Adams was frustrated with Aaron Rodgers. He already envisioned with the Las Vegas Raiders whether Aaron Rodgers would stay, come or go. Aaron Rodgers and the franchise tag made it easier for him to go to the Packers and say I’m done.‘ Keyshawn said.
“The Packers also didn’t try to salvage their relationship with Davante, they just said, ok, we’ll trade you. They just valued their quarterback more than Davante Adams. They considered Adams expendable anyway,‘ Johnson claimed.
Now that Davante has been boxed in by the Raiders and the Packers have kept Rodgers, it will be interesting to see how things play out in the upcoming season.
