GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers acknowledges that he decided to return to the Green Bay Packers believing he would still have All-Pro receiver Davante Adams as a teammate for the upcoming season.
The four-time MVP quarterback made those comments while talking on Pat McAfee’s SiriusXM and YouTube show.
The Packers announced on March 15 that Rodgers had agreed to a contract extension.
Adams was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders later that week.
Adams’ exit leaves the Packers with a shortage of proven receivers.
While on McAfee's show, Rodgers also talked about the Packers selections during round one of the NFL Draft.
He said he wasn't surprised the team didn't go for a wide receiver. He said in the past, the team had good luck with second and third-round receivers.
"Look at Greg Jennings, and Jordy Nelson, and Randall Cobb, James Jones... those guys turned out pretty good," Rodgers said.
