Earlier this offseason, the Green Bay Packers shocked the football world by trading star wide receiver Davante Adams.
Green Bay and Adams had been in contract talks for months, but couldn't find common ground. After failing to come to an agreement, the Packers decided it was best to just move on.
The team shipped him to the Las Vegas Raiders, where he can play alongside former college teammate Derek Carr. After holding his tongue for a few weeks, Aaron Rodgers finally reacted to the trade.
According to his recent comments, he thought Adams would stick around and play in Green Bay for years to come.
"I thought based on the number we offered Davante and being able to play with me for a few more years would definitely make a difference, but in the end he was ready to move on," Rodgers said via Packers reporter Zach Kruse.
While his comments about Adams were interesting, it was something he said about himself that stole the headlines.
"Play with me for a few more years," was an interesting line because Rodgers has never revealed how long he plans to play. He keeps re-working his contract with the Packers to allow himself an out after every season.
Perhaps he planned to stick around in Green Bay for the long haul after all.
