Still unsure if quarterback Aaron Rodgers will show up for training camp next week, the Green Bay Packers are now reportedly in a "bad place" with star wide receiver Davante Adams.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the two sides have "broken off long-term extension talks" with "no current plans" to resume negotiations." Rapoport says months of negotiations have have them in a "bad place."
Rapoport added that proposals from the Packers "have not acknowledged Adams as the highest paid WR." Adams' current deals pays him an annual average salary of $14.5 million, well below the league's highest-paid receiver, Arizona's DeAndre Hopkins, at $22 million.
Adams is a free agent after the 2021 season, and star players typically aren't forced to play without future guarantees. It'll be interesting to see if the Packers pay Adams what he wants, or possibly trade him.
It's also more bad news for Packers fans who want Rodgers back this season. If Rodgers doesn't have his top target, will he even consider coming back to Green Bay at all?
