Adams Extension Is Tricky, but Must Be Done

A contract extenstion for Adams will not be easily agreed.

Davante Adams recently broke off contract negotiations with the Green Bay Packers, with his current contract set to expire after this season. 
 
Following the news that Aaron Rodgers would return for 2021, reports surfaced stating that Adams was now happy to re-open discussions over a new deal. 
 
However, the two sides agreeing on a contract extension is easier said than done, with many factors complicating the negotiations. 
 
Chief among these issues is that Adams has clearly stated he will not sign a deal unless it makes him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL.  
 
Davante Adams is arguably the best receiver in the league and is absolutely entitled to make such a demand, but there is some debate over what figure actually constitutes the “highest-paid” receiver. 
 
DeAndre Hopkins will receive the highest salary among NFL wide receivers in 2021, a whopping $27.25 million, but this was a two-year extension on top of an existing contract.  
 
The next largest salary for the 2021 season is Julio Jones’ $22 million. $5.25 million between Hopkins and Jones is a big difference. 
 
Hopkins’ contract is essentially synthetically inflating the wide receiver market. Adams is well within his rights to not care about that, but it is a gap that needs to somehow be bridged. 
 
The Packers’ 2022 cap situation looks like an absolute train wreck right now, and they cannot afford to spend an additional five to six million dollars willy-nilly. 
 
However, the adjustment made to Rodgers’ contract appears to have opened up some cap space for Green Bay, which could allow some more room to manoeuvre regarding Adams’ deal. 
 
Age is also something to consider when evaluating a potential contract for Adams. 
 
He turns 29 during this season, so signing up for another four or five years would take Adams through his age 33 or 34 campaign. 
 
Adams is absolutely in his prime right now, but it is impossible to predict when a player will start to decline or how rapid that decline will be. A long-term deal would certainly carry some risk for Green Bay. 
 
That said, Adams’ game has never been about blazing speed, he is more of a technician and his skillset may not be as susceptible to a drastic deterioration as he gets older. 
 
Adams could easily go on to have a Larry-Fitzgerald-like career and be productive well into his thirties. 
 
Another interesting wrinkle is that the Packers have actually fared well without Adams when they have had to. 
 
Green bay is 5-0 in the games Adams has missed through injury in the last two seasons. 
 
The importance of wide receivers to team success is probably a little overvalued generally, and Matt LaFleur’s offense schemes receivers open more than the Mike McCarthy attack of old. 
 
But realistically, the Packers’ success without Adams is probably coincidental and they are undoubtedly better with him than without him. 
 
Aaron Rodgers trusts Adams implicitly and his presence allows his fellow receivers to thrive versus single coverage. Not to mention he is a key member of Green Bay’s locker room. 
 
If this is indeed the ‘Last Dance’ and the Packers are going to press the big red reset button after this season, there’s an argument to be made that it makes sense to move on from Adams as well. 
 
But if Green Bay are to hand the reigns to Jordan Love from 2022, having Adams as his security blanket will be invaluable as he makes his first steps in the NFL. 
 
There are certainly plenty of obstacles and reasons to give Brian Gutekunst and Russ Ball pause as they attempt to tie up an extension for Adams. 
 
But overall, the pros of re-signing Adams outweigh the cons, and they will most likely grit their teeth and get a deal done to keep 17 in Green Bay for the long haul.

I'm old enough to remember before Sterling Sharpe was even in college.
When we lost Favre's main man, superstar Sterling, we thought we were screwed.
But the other WRs blossomed.

I love Tae. I'm just not sure paying a 30-year old WR that much (Hopkins) money is a winnable formula. Maybe on a franchise tag one year thing.... we'll see.

There is very little chance the Packers or ANY team will give Adams a contract w/ Hopkins extension money for a full contract, Simply that is not the highest paid. 22M or maybe 23M yes for sure. But more than the 27M extension Hopkins signed is not going to happen even if he hits FA.

Adams IMO is like a Fitzgerald. He's not a WR that has been beaten up and his skills, ability and production doesn't rely on speed to get open. So he will remain effective well past his 30th Birthday.

He can posture all he wants for 27M, and I don't blame him for trying, but its extremely unlikely any team will pay him more that 27M per. Highest paid WR is at about 22M.

"But realistically, the Packers’ success without Adams is probably coincidental and they are undoubtedly better with him than without him."

Hmmmm... Gotta say I disagree. Yes, they're better BUT two games, maybe three is coincidental. When you go 5-0 and IIRC score a boat load of points in those games, it's no longer coincidental. What that is IMO is a MLF scheme at it's BEST, the way the offense is meant to be run.

Packers fans including myself were all over Gute when he failed to draft a WR in 2019 and 2020. But what happened in 2020? The Packers had one of the most balanced potent offenses in the NFL. Like it or not, believe it or not, the Packers are moving towards a run first offense. Jones resigned, Dillion ready to take a much bigger role, and a RB room with Hill and maybe Taylor or Williams gives the Packers a lot of versatility and options.

I don't know what the right thing to do with Adams is. $28 million for a 30 year old WR is a lot of money whether you have a horrible cap situation in 2022 or not. The Packers are clearly all in in 2021. Next season will be the start of a new era, the Jordan Love era with a MONSTER sized, talented, and deep O-Line. A RB room that's as good and deep as any in the NFL, and on paper a pretty damn good Defense.

With a shift towards being a more run oriented offense (at least IMO) in 2022, and a passing game that has proven it came scheme players wide open if you run it the way it's MEANT to be run, and a team with a salary cap in the pooper, Adams may be a luxury the Packers can't afford...Period. Like many said in a piece yesterday...I'm just going to enjoy the ride in 2021 and hope it ends with Championship 14 and not worry about anyones contract. It's been a brutal summer and I'm DONE worrying about next season. GO PACK GO!

I keep seeing you and others saying this. Matt Lafleur is going to a run heavy offense. Up to this point that has not been the case. It’s a myth. We ran 45% of the time last year. We have been middle of the pack since he came to town. There’s no evidence to support this. Maybe some shorter throws, and certainly not McCarthy like, but we aren’t special when it comes to running the ball.

We aren’t going to be an old style run team but we are a much more diverse offense with much heavier back involvement than we were pre LaFleur’s system and we are building to be able to run as the lead weapon if that is needed.

As Nick pointed out, he expects Love to be the QB next year, and it stands to reason with a 1st year starter Lafleur would tilt more toward the run game in his scheme.

Simply....I just don't see the need to sign Adam's as talented as he is for any of the money being discussed. With that said, a major factor will be are the Packer's keeping Rodgers, or are they planning to go with Love in 2022? I think this issue has to be resolved before anything is even considered with Tae. If Love is the QB there is NO WAY with the run heavy play action offense that Adam's is going to be targeted nearly as often. No way! Which means the productivity will be less, yet Adam's salary is up. Mathematically it doesn't make any sense to me. I would prefer trading Adam's if we can and get what we can for him. Believe 2022 is the year the Pack may finally draft a WR in round 1, or round 2. Presently, I agree with Nick and many others about the talent we have at WR. 2022, and Amari will be into his second year.

Yes, I too well remember the Sterling Sharpe and Favre situation and Favre became a much better QB when he did not have to constantly force passes to Sharpe. I see the same scenario with Love. Spread the ball around! I do think Tonyan will be key to resigning in 2022.

I agree. On individual merit you resign an Adams, but football is not like that. It’s about balancing salary/potential/age and timing etc. Alexander is a must extend. Adams is dependent on what we are as a team, If Rodgers stays next year, you find a way of you can without decimating. If Rodgers is gone, you don’t tie up that much and look to develop alongside his replacement. GMs have to look more broadly than just current ability or a franchise will crash fast.

I’m all for giving Adams a 3-4 year deal at 22.5 AAV. But he won’t take it. And plus, like you said, he’s at the age when many WRs start to decline. Adams game is not top end speed, but it absolutely is explosive athletic movements in a phone booth - which goes away quickly when it goes. So, I franchise him for 2022 and trade him before the season starts for a 1st round pick.

Have to disagree with the author. Paying a 30 year WR $27 million a year on a four year deal when he only touches the ball 8-10 times a game and maybe less as the Packers become more run oriented is just nuts. You can't tie up 13-14% of your cap in one guy who doesn't touch the ball very often. Adams is a great guy, a true professional on the field and off, and I deeply appreciate all he has done for the Packers. But the numbers just don't make any sense. The business decision has to outweigh the emotional decision and the Packers should just take the third round comp pick (or franchise him and trade him for more if possible) and move on.

Franchise him! He broke off the negotiations. The packers didn't. If he wants Carr- Go to him. Because Rodgers might not be here. And he didn't want to sign or play if he wasn't, ( per whispers.) I say Gute is making a negotiating blunder. Treat Adams like Linsley. Sign what you can. Extend what you can. But don't pay out what you can't afford. Yes , Adams is great. But so was Bulaga, Linsley, Daniels, and Nelson. Have Adams concusions gone to his head? One more and he could be done. I doubt even a mediator could help.

But you hit on a key point with his injuries and how much you pay a guy who you can expect to miss a couple games.. Between getting his clock cleaned a couple times and annual soft tissue injuries, you have to ask yourself how many games you can expect to get out of #17 each year. It's looking like the over/under is on 14.

As is likely and Rodgers has a great year he stays and is still ringing the bell. No big cash for a WR who cannot free himself in the hook zone. The outlier on the accountant's neuroses scale is Bhaktiari. Can he return to All- Pro status or has Jenkins taken the belt. Time will tell, but the QB is the straw that stills every drink from the Mimosas to the Old Fashioned red hat specials with rot gut brandy. My money is on the MVP. The rest may walk.

If I’m the Packers brass, no way do I touch a $27/yr contract for Davante. Don’t get me wrong, I love him as a person and a player. He’s amazing. In a vacuum, he’s probably worth the money (for now).

But next year, when we all know that Rodgers is 95% likely to be gone and Love takes over, Adams probably at best makes the difference between a 9-7 or 7-9 season. Not worth the money.

The formula is there for winning with a new starting QB:

1. Running game - done with Jones/Dillon

2. Tight End - done with Deguara and use some of Adam’s extension money to extend Tonyan

3. Defense - use some more of that $27M to sign a quality free agent DL and ILB, and this could be a formidable D that can keep a noob QB in games

Is a Love-led Packers offense better with Adams than without? Of course. Is it better enough to justify the contract cost? Personally, I doubt it. We’ll see what Gute and Ball think.

The time to extend Adams was before the start of the 2020 season (hindsight? No, I was pulling for this hard at the time). He likely would have drawn what would've seemed to be a ridiculous amount of money, but it would've been ahead of the big year he just had, they could've manipulated it to keep his 2021 number down (and facilitate other movees), and if they could've added three years to his final year it would've been manageable cap-wise. Knowing how little they had under contract at the WR position in 2021 and beyond, it seemed like a necessity.

It would've also gotten them out from under his deal a year earlier (before he hit his mid-30s). Unfortunately, Covid happened, nobody knew when football would be played or how much, and the cap implications were a mess. The fact that they didn't try to address this earlier likely means the Packers were thinking they were going to move on.

In the end, I think it cost the Packers a blue-chip player going forward.

Like most of you, I wouldn't throw that much money into a WR, especially when we have already painted ourselves into a CAP corner. But of course it isn't that easy now that Aaron Rodgers is driving the agenda. If Rodgers forced Gutekunst to bring back Cobb - how is Gutekunst going to let Adams walk? I doubt the Packers are interested in sinking 20+ million into one WR so we are back to the same bullshit by year end. Make our run, get our picks and start the rebuild - enough of the last dance nonsense.

Adams without Rodgers at QB is completely wasteful expensive contract. I really like Adams playing with Rodgers, but him playing with Love? His numbers will drop like a 2 ton anchor in the ocean and he won't be worth the contract. Now if Rodgers was staying, then you'd figure out how to sign the player.

The management created mess at the future of the QB position has really messed up the future of the franchise, can't say enough about how disappointed I am with the front office.

Wouldn't touch a Adams extension without knowing Rodgers is throwing him the ball for the next 4-5 years. My 2..

I agree with most of the comments, if Rodgers re-structures (which is 50/50 at best) then yes either sign Davante or franchise him.

If Love is our QB next season it’s going to be a mini rebuild anyway so no because it would be prohibitive.

Love is going to need to grow with some of the other young WR and most likely several WR draft choices.

Again it all depends on what they do with Rodgers, Davante & him are like pea & carrots

Correct me if I'm wrong, but to franchise #17, they'd have to clear enough room under the cap to account for his franchise tag number as part of their 51 on the first league day in March? It could be that the franchise number doesn't count until the player signs the franchise tender, though. Help us out, TGR!

They've got a lot of cap to clear just to get to the anticipated number in March, but that's a lot of extra cap to clear.

There is no point in resigning Adams if Rodgers is gone. The Packers will run more and Adams will get less targets and less receptions. It just would not justify such an expensive contract.

13 Times there are 2 possible approaches. First would be to tag him and then trade him.
The other would be to try to trade before his current contract expires. I’m not sure how long after the season that would be but I believe there would be a window between the end of the season and the expiration of his contract.
In any case they should trade him before the draft so they know what they can get in return. Thanks, Since ‘61

They can apply the tag before FA starts. If they do they gain time to negotiate a longer term deal (a second tag starts to get ludicrously expensive never mind player reactions) or trade him. The problem is that, as Dobber has noted, once they tag him they add that cost to cap totals in full. Since we are about 50 million over with him counted at zero, that means some fairly major cuts of contracted players would need to occur before the new NFL year starts. Which means, if I’m correct, before you can trade other players.

With Rodgers that seems extremely unlikely due to his cap even post any extension due to the effect on the rest of the roster outweighing the benefit. It could be done with cuts and renegotiations but no trades available. Without Rodgers it gets a lot easier but a lot more dubious an investment. I may be confusing this, but the odds seem heavily stacked against it if I have understood the timings correctly.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't entirely sure when his contract ends in relationship to the new year officially starting. NFL contracts can be a bit confusing.

Whatever approach they take, I have a really hard time seeing him getting anything in the 24-28 million range with GB. I'm thinking 2021 is the end of the AR12/DA17 era unfortunately. Hopefully it ends with our trophy case having a new addition to it.

The top 10 highest paid WRs are all non-factors to ensuring their respective teams get to the SB, which is the goal that needs to be a huge factor in the money to be paid to that WR.

Tampa Bay could lose Evans and achieve what they have, an SB,
KC could lose Hill and achieve an SB.

None of the rest got their teams close to an SB appearance because of the money they got paid.
I wouldn't even consider Adams's request/demand for the highest-paid WR and would wait until the season plays out and where the Packers end up as to the goal of being in the SB.

I would also ignore whether or not Rodgers was returning as it would be three straight seasons where neither of them produced an SB appearance, much less a win. Yes, not achieving such shouldn't be laid upon either's shoulders alone, but if they get the money under the premise that they will get the team there, then the blame is on them more so and justifies NOT paying them the money.

It's hard enough to justify the money QBs are getting without winning or appearing in the SB, less winning the Division or being a wildcard, to add the burden of excessively over-paid WRs.

Perhaps I should remind the author that while the Packers now have a little cap space this season, they're almost $50 MILLION over the cap next season. That's unworkable by any measure.

If you see all the adjustments the Packers made this year to get under the cap(barely) that means they have little if any wiggle room for next year.

There is no way, as I see it now, that Aaron Rodgers and D. Adams will be on the team next year. I think both of them know that, thus the break off of negotiations with Adams. Rodgers' contract is a type of poison pill, too big to swallow. The trade to Denver is still viable next year for Rodgers and I wouldn't be surprised to see Adams go there via free agency or the Raiders.

No one is questioning Adams ability, that's the reason he's likely to get top dollar value on the market. But there is an end to your resources via the salary cap and the Packers are far beyond it for next year.

I suspect Rodgers, Adams, Preston Smith, Zadarius Smith, Lucas Patrick and maybe Billy Turner,Mercedes Lewis, Kevin King Randall Cobb, Dean Lowry have their contracts for next year on the chopping block. It has to be done as there is no other way after they signed David B. A. Jones, etc. this year.

Sorry to slap a bit of reality to the loyal fans in what could be a very good year for the Packers, but truth is better than fiction.

Somewhat related: I'm totally on board the pressing the big reset button after this season, but let's see what we have in Love before going there. If he looks good in preseason and maybe some spot duty during the regular season, then go for it....without Adams. We can't keep hanging on to every high-priced player. Gute has done a reasonably good job of turning over the roster so far, and I think we should continue on this track.

Perhaps, but my view is regardless of where Love is, Rodgers has to go. Again, he is the MVP and his ability isn't in question. He isn't going to redo his contract again and he will account for nearly 1/4 of the cap by himself. Throw Adams $25 mill into it hypothetically and they would eat up close to 1/3 of it for two players.

Bridgewater would be available as a backup/starter if Love isn't ready to go.

Adams needs to stop pretending that the numbers in Hopkins contract are real and focus on what the Cardinals are really paying him. Some fans might think that Hopkins really gets 27AAV, but Adams and his agents and the Packers definately know it's not real.

I agree on the attitude to the Hopkins deal, but in reality nothing will be done until the league resets expectations. In the end it’s what players, teams and agents see as the trend not the math. The WR market needs to settle and that will take time to get a feel for the going rate.

Perhaps that’s why Gutie made the comment about what exactly IS the highest paid player being paid?

Tag him if needed for the 2 allowable years, he will be 31 and in most cases beyond his prime!

I wonder why everyone thinks Cobb is a definite lock. If the Packers plan to trade Rodgers at end of season or Rodgers is for sure leaving, who says that Cobb MAY not be cut before season ends! Not likely to happen but maybe they wanted to appease Rodgers before season to get him back but cut Cobb after wards! Dirty pool but nothing is beyond doubt!

Why not ask GM Rodgers what we should do about Adams contract?
