Shedding Davante Adams might have made Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers a greater teammate as he approaches the 2022 season with a extra open persona.
Aaron Rodgers needs to win one other Tremendous Bowl with the Packers however he’s going to need to do it with out top-of-the-line receivers within the recreation.
Surprisingly sufficient, dropping Davante Adams to the Raiders in free company might have truly compelled the quarterback to be a greater teammate.
He is aware of he can’t depend on Adams anymore. As an alternative, he’ll need to make due with a receiving corps made up of Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, Randall Cobb and a bunch of rookies, like breakout camp star Romeo Dobbs. Meaning he has to do every part he can to carry that unit up.
“For somebody that’s been round him for a couple of years now, it’s spectacular to me that this man remains to be rising and getting higher and being extra receptive,” Lazard stated, via ESPN.

“How he’s been carrying himself this season has been far more of an open-door sort of mentality on the subject of discussing issues — particularly having so many younger guys who haven’t had that chemistry and don’t but perceive what he’s on the lookout for,” Lazard stated.
