Aaron Rodgers will return to the Packers center in 2021. Now the only question left is whether his favorite target will join him at Green Bay.
Like his quarterback, Davante Rodgers had refused to return to the Packers. On Sunday, the duo hinted that a comeback for the two could be in the works by posting the same photo of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen from the ESPN documentary, “The Last Dance,” to Instagram.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the restructured deal with Rodgers will give Green Bay more ceiling space and help the team make another attempt at Adams extension.
FOLLOWING: Five reasons Rodgers isn’t holding out for the 2021 season
The 2021 season is Adams’ last in his current four-year, $ 58 million contract with the Packers.
Obviously, bringing Adams back would be a major boon for the Packers. A season ago, he had 18 Rodgers touchdown passes, tied for the third most touchdown receptions in a single season. He also led the league with 98.1 yards per game when he amassed 1,374 yards in 14 games. Since 2016, no quarterback receiving tandem has connected for more touchdowns (53) than Rodgers to Adams. The receiver also totaled the sixth-most receiving yards in that span, with 5,639 yards.
If Rodgers is back, the chances of Green Bay at least having Adams return to the field for 2021 should be higher – but there is still a lot of uncertainty if the Madden 22 club’s first 99 member will re- will sign with the Packers or continue his wait.
