Davante Adams traded to the Las Vegas Raiders

It’s a blockbuster of a trade, one that Aaron Rodgers is probably none too happy about...

It has been an insane week of trades across two of the big three sports, and the NFL continues to be the whiny younger sibling who can’t just let MLB have the limelight for one stinking week. Here’s the latest:

The prime picks are picks 22 and 53, so a first and second round pick, respectively.

With the addition of these two picks, the Packers now have five picks inside the top 100. That’s now going to matter a great deal, as Aaron Rodgers’ top weapons in the passing game now look like Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb (really, it’s not a joke).

As for Adams himself, he gets a five-year deal worth $141.25 million, and joins a Raiders offense helmed by Derek Carr. Stud tight end Darren Waller and slot man Hunter Renfrow are also in the fold. Josh Jacobs headlines a solid stable of running backs. In short, it’s a heck of an offense.

You should have zero qualms about drafting Adams next year, as his reunion with his college QB (Fresno State) in Carr will surely pay dividends given Adams’ talent.
