The Las Vegas Raiders may have lost to the Miami Dolphins in Week 11, but it was a competitive game throughout the afternoon.
Miami has been one of the most explosive offenses in the league during the 2023 season, but the Las Vegas defense managed to hold them to just 20 points in the loss. The offense, on the other hand, struggled as they only managed 13 points.
Aidan O’Connell had trouble taking care of the football as he had three interceptions, including one late in the game that sealed the Dolphins’ victory. However, Davante Adams had a strong performance as he recorded seven receptions for 82 yards and one touchdown.
Adams hasn’t won many games during his time in Las Vegas and it sounds like the New York Jets are going to try and pry him away again this offseason via Adam Schefter of ESPN:
“The Jets inquired about reuniting Las Vegas Raiders Pro Bowl wide receiver Davante Adams with Aaron Rodgers before last month’s trade deadline, only to be quickly rebuffed.
But the Jets might not be willing to take no for an answer, as sources around the NFL expect that New York will pursue Adams again this offseason.
‘That will happen,’ one source told ESPN. ‘I think so.’
Sources said they believe that whether the Raiders consider trading Adams could depend on how their season finishes. Since naming Antonio Pierce as interim head coach, the Raiders (5-5) have won both of their games and garnered recognition and respect from around the league, while Adams has looked and sounded extremely happy.”
Although Aaron Rodgers is still recovering from a torn Achilles, the Jets are looking toward the 2024 season where they hope to once again compete for a Super Bowl title. Despite being denied previously, New York has reportedly been keeping tabs on the receiver and tried to trade for him at the trade deadline:
“The Jets have been watching and tracking Adams since they landed Rodgers this year. New York ‘s most recent effort to acquire Adams came last month, as the Jets were waiting for the right moment to reach out to the Raiders about the three-time All-Pro wide receiver.”
Should the Raiders flame out toward the stretch run, the organization should seriously consider moving on from Adams in order to restock their draft capital and rebuild the team from the ground up. Adams has yet to officially request a trade, but a reunion with Rodgers might make the most sense for him if he’s trying to win.
