The Inexperienced Bay Packers had been capable of preserve star quarterback Aaron Rodgers within the fold this offseason, however ended up buying and selling Davante Adams away to the Las Vegas Raiders. Rodgers and Adams had been one of many NFL‘s premier dynamic duos over the previous few years, and headlined an explosive offense that gained 13 video games in three straight seasons.

How Rodgers will fare with out Adams and the way Adams will fare with out Rodgers are two large storylines heading in to the 2022 season. Packers legend Brett Favre says his former workforce will most likely be OK, however as for Adams, he is anticipating him to take a step backwards from the 1,553-yard, 11-touchdown marketing campaign he had in 2021.

“No disrespect to Davante in any respect — zero disrespect. I do assume that Davante will make Derek Carr higher and, in time, they are going to be a dynamic duo. Now will or not it’s the duo that Aaron and Davante had? Time will inform,” Favre informed TMZ. “I feel Derek Carr’s an excellent quarterback, however he isn’t in Aaron’s league but. And will by no means be, and that is no disrespect both, however I do assume that Davante owes an excessive amount of gratitude to Aaron and the Packers drafting him. That is to not say he isn’t a terrific participant as a result of he’s an amazing participant and we’ll see that with Las Vegas. Nevertheless it’s simply laborious to shift gears, particularly from a participant as prolific as Aaron Rodgers. I would be shocked if he had the identical yr he is had the earlier yr. That is to not say he cannot do it, however I’d be shocked.”

Favre did say that you could’t change a participant like Adams, however he believes Rodgers will be capable of depend on Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon on the bottom and in play-action, after which choose his photographs downfield. 

Rodgers is somebody who has confirmed he can win with no matter is round him. Again in Week 8 final yr, he took down the final undefeated workforce within the Arizona Cardinals with out Adams and Allen Lazard. Adams performed only one recreation with out Rodgers in 2021, a 13-7 loss to the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs by which he caught six passes for 42 yards from Jordan Love. It is true that Carr is a greater quarterback than Love, however Adams should show that he may be the most effective huge receiver within the NFL with out Rodgers. It is what Vegas paid him for.
