Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams had a dream partnership when the pair played together for the Packers. The Raiders WR was perfectly suited for contemporary passes thrown by Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.
After Davante Adams was traded to the Raiders, the Packer’s offence has taken a serious hit. The Packers are 2-1 at the start of the season and rank 12th in offence but just 27th in scoring. This means that, the Packers are lacking a lethal receiver who can score countless touchdowns.
According to Colin Cowherd, things are also looking dim for Davante Adams who switched to the Raiders looking for greener pastures in the NFL but all he has found is disappointment. The Raiders are without a win in their first three games of the season.
Davante Adams has reportedly turned down extension offers from the Packers to move to the Raiders to play with Derek Carr. “Davante Adams chose a perpetually poorly run franchise with a head coach who failed at his previous gig,” Colin Cowherd stated on the Herd.
“The Raiders, over the last several years, have been full of turmoil, strange things, weirdness, instability — it’s part of the everything. It’s part of their everything.” Cowherd added. “I think Davante did something I’ve warned people about: He tried to get happier than happy.”

Colin Cowherd believes that Davante Adams was at a great place and didn’t need to move. The WR was challenging for the Super Bowl every year with the help of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers were also willing to pay him more through a contract extension.
When Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams combined, the Raiders WR Davante Adams was touted as the best receiver in the league recording 228 receptions for 2,927 yards and 29 touchdowns.
Ever since Adams departure the Packers offense is worsening every single game. “Green Bay has one touchdown in the second half in three games — one,” Colin Cowherd stated on the Herd.
“They were a more lethal team in the second half. With him, when Aaron’s rolling out, stuff breaks down, and you just need a trustable dude.”
