Davante Adams reveals his big goal for rest of career
by | VIEW 305
Davante Adams says his goal for the rest of his career is to become a Hall of Famer. Over the last few seasons, Adams has established himself as one of the best wide receivers in the league. Only 29 wide receivers have made the Hall of Fame.
Currently, Adams' resume includes five Pro Bowl selections, two First-team All Pro selections and he also led the league in receiving touchdowns in 2020. "I want to be in the Hall," Adams said on "The Pivot" podcast, via CBS Sports.
"There's only 29 at my position in that, and I've got that on my alarm clock when I wake up. It's always been a goal. If I am where I am now, and I know I can continue to build that, I've got a chance."
Adams will have to add to his resume
This offseason, Adams left the Green Bay Packers to join the Las Vegas Raiders Adams went from having Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback - the reigning NFL MVP - to Derek Carr.
Adams is still one of the best wide receivers in the game but some think he may not have as much success with Carr as his quarterback. Brett Favre, a legendary Packers quarterback, said he would be shocked if Adams had the same numbers with Carr as his quarterback.
"No disrespect to Davante at all -- zero disrespect. I do think that Davante will make Derek Carr better and, in time, they will be a dynamic duo. Now will it be the duo that Aaron and Davante had? Time will tell," Favre told TMZ, per CBS Sports.
"I think Derek Carr's a very good quarterback, but he's not in Aaron's league yet. And may never be, and that's no disrespect either, but I do think that Davante owes a great deal of gratitude to Aaron and the Packers drafting him.
That's not to say he's not a great player because he is a tremendous player and we'll see that with Las Vegas. But it's just hard to shift gears, especially from a player as prolific as Aaron Rodgers. I'd be shocked if he had the same year he's had the previous year.
That's not to say he can't do it, but I would be shocked." Since coming to the Raiders, Adams has been nothing but supportive of Carr. Adams noted several times that he came to the Raiders to bring a Super Bowl to the team.
