Packers WR Adams Responds To Raiders QB Carr About Playing In Las Vegas Next Season

On Tuesday, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr spoke about former college teammate and good friend Green Bay Packers wide out Davante Adams. Adams will be a free agent after this upcoming season, if he doesn’t come to a deal with his current team.

Carr heaped praise on Adams for what he’s done in his time in Green Bay.

“I know that he’s obviously the best receiver — everyone said one of the best, he’s the best receiver in the NFL,” Carr said.

Adams has come back at his old friend, leaving open the possibility of linking up with him at some point in the future.

“Obviously, I love Derek to death. We got a great friendship, and we still communicate really, really consistently,” Adams said.

“He’s one of my best friends, so obviously it’d be a dream to be able to play with him.

“I’m a Packer now, so until that point where we make that decision, I guess we’ll see what happens.”

Carr and Adams were very good together at Fresno State in 2012 and 2013. Adams put up huge numbers with Carr under center. The Packers wide out had 3,031 receiving yards and 38 touchdowns over the course of the two college seasons.

  1. As an actual Fresno State fan, and someone who has seen both David and Derek Carr play in person, it absolutely kills me that the lesser talented Derek gets so much attention.

    He’s literally Alex Smith, only not as good. David had wins over multiple Power 5 teams in his time as a Bulldog, but had his NFL career ruined by the Texans and their terrible O-Line. It’s like a boxer/mma fighter who gets ko’d, and then rushed out again 2 weeks later by terrible management for a payday.

    Derek Carr survived Rutgers and blew it against SJSU in a year the Bulldogs had a legit shot to make a New Year’s 6 bowl. He’s since had extremely talented Raiders surround him, only to check down constantly, and choke consistently.

    If David had Davante, it would’ve been 58 TD’s instead of 38, and multiple playoff wins had he not been drafted by a first year expansion team.

    Derek Carr needs to go away.
