Derek Carr continues to discuss a possible reunion with Davante Adams.
The Las Vegas Raiders quarterback, who played the Green Bay Packers wide receiver at Fresno State, said on Cris Collinsworth’s podcast that manipulation rules don’t apply to players. So, he will continue to talk to Adams about moving to Las Vegas.
“Davante, he’s one of my best friends,” Carr said, transcribed by Professional football talk. “I will offer him whatever he has to offer. I will buy him a car, whatever he has to do I will offer it to that man. I know he would fit in very well with the receivers we have here. He fits so well in that room. I’m allowed to say those things. Our organization isn’t, but I’m going to say it. He’s my best friend, I think he’s one of the best, he’s the best receiver in the NFL. “
Carr added that his ideal scenario would be for the Raiders to beat the Packers in the Super Bowl and then Adams to sign with Las Vegas in free agency.
“He’s focused on being a packer and I know that because I see how he works,” Carr said. “I know how he works and I know how much it means to him. He’s focused on that and I’m focused on trying to get to the Super Bowl, win. the Super Bowl, hopefully he’s in it so I can beat his ass too. ” . That’s the plan, then recruit him to the dark side. “
Carr’s comments come after Adams said last week that it would be a “dream” to play for the Raiders quarterback again. However, he said recently in an interview with Graham Matthews from Bleacher Report who wants to stay in Green Bay beyond the 2021 season.
Adams is entering the final season of his four-year contract and will be a free agent in 2022 if he does not agree to an extension with the Packers. He led the NFL with 18 touchdowns last season in what was one of his best years in the league.
