Our sports media can be absurdly intrusive at times, but Davante Adams still does his best to answer questions to the best of his ability. That commitment won the All-Pro receiver the first-ever unanimous Tom Mulhern Stand-Up Guy Award.
The Packers star offered this lengthy response as to why he puts so much effort into his answers:

“I try and get the most out of everything that I do and that was taught by my parents,” Adams said. “Y’all (the media) have made it really easy to do this. Obviously when I went through a tough time in my career in 2015 where I didn’t want to or I was asked questions I didn’t want to answer. I never felt like I was ever treated unfairly through that whole process.”
However, Adams also went out of his way to differentiate local reporters from those national goons who hunt clicks like blood-hungry vampires. Smart move to make friends with those who cover you at work.
Congratulations to Davante Adams on his well-deserved recognition as a good dude.
