Aaron Rodgers voices confidence in Packers rookie WRs after Davante Adams departure

Aaron Rodgers says he is happy with what he has at his disposal as he believes the Green Bay Packers have some very talented wide receiver and that will be just fine after the departure of Davante Adams. This offseason, the Packers suffered a major loss when Adams decided against signing an extension with the team.

Instead, Adams decided to sign with the Las Vegas Raiders and that was the end of the Rodgers and Adams days in Green Bay. Adams wasn't the only big player the Packers lost this offseason as Marquet Valdes-Scantling is now a Kansas City Chief.

The Packers used the draft to address the departures of Adams and Valdes-Scantling and Rodgers is happy with he has seen so far from rookies Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and Samori Toure. "Every year there's opinions that start coming out about players in helmets and shorts, and I would say let's everybody just take a nice deep long breath and trust the training camp time that we have, trust the coaching staff, trust the relationships that will continue to be formed, trust the guys in the room like Allen Lazard, and Randall Cobb, and Sammy Watkins to help these young guys out," Rodgers said, per CBS Sports.

"Physically, they definitely look the part, all three of them. All three of the guys we drafted, they all have physical gifts," Rodgers said. "Obviously the top two picks are bigger, Doubs and Watson, but the seventh-round pick's got a lot of stuff to him.

So I think it's going to be great." The Packers have a talented secondary and Rodgers thinks that will help Watson, Doubs and Toure adjust to going up against NFL defenses. "There's no better teacher for them on what NFL ball's going to be like than going against our top three corners, Jaire [Alexander], Eric Stokes and obviously Rasul [Douglas].

So those guys will get a real quick initiation into the NFL," the two-time reigning MVP said. For many years, Rodgers and Adams were considered as one of the most dangerous duos in the NFL. Just recently, Packers legend Brett Favre said he doesn't think Adams will be less successful with Derek Carr as his quarterback.

Favre noted Adams will still likely post great numbers but he doesn't expect them to be as a big as they used to be while Rodgers was his quarterback.
