With the Los Angeles Rams crowned the winners of Super Bowl LVI, the NFL can now turn its attention to the upcoming NFL offseason, where fireworks are sure to happen.

There are several situations worth monitoring around the league, with most people focused on the future of Aaron Rodgers as he is reportedly going to mull a change of scenery. The Green Bay Packers also may need to worry about Davante Adams, who could also choose to leave in free agency after the team fell short in the postseason yet again.

Every franchise could use a receiver of Adams’ caliber, but the Las Vegas Raiders would make sense as a landing spot for the star. Not only are the Raiders in need of another receiving option outside of Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow, but Derek Carr and Adams also remain friends, and both have previously discussed playing together.

Carr will reportedly agree to an extension with Las Vegas at some point, but in an appearance on “The Morning Tailgate with Clay Baker,” Hondo Carpenter of Sports Illustrated said the quarterback could take less to reunite with Adams as transcribed by Raiders Beat:

“I one hundred percent believe Derek Carr would take less money if it went into the Davante [Adams] pool,” Carpenter said on Raider Nation Radio 920 AM’s The Morning Tailgate with Clay Baker. “Let’s just say that I believe that with 100 percent certainty based on conversation I have had with people who are in the know. If Derek has to take a little bit less to get Davante, he will.”

While a Carr-Adams pairing would be ideal for the Silver and Black, the Packers could simply franchise tag the wideout and try to work out a long-term extension after the two sides broke talks this past summer. However, things change quickly in the NFL, and it will be interesting to see how Green Bay handles Adams’ contract situation in the coming weeks.
