Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams has been close friends with quarterback Derek Carr since they played together at Fresno State, and Adams was looking forward to playing with Carr in Las Vegas. So it’s no surprise that Adams is unhappy with Carr’s bench and Carr’s likely departure this offseason.
Adams wrote on Instagram that Carr was the only reason he wanted the Packers to trade him to the Raiders.
“This man gave his all. The reason I’m a Raider,” Adams wrote. “One of the most disciplined, loving people I know. I got my brothers back through anything.
Adams added a major emoji that he said was for anyone “can’t respect it.”
This raises the question of whether Adams will return to Las Vegas this past season. When the Raiders traded for him and signed him to a lucrative contract extension, there seemed little doubt that they were invested in him for the long term. But if Adams doesn’t want to be there without Carr, and if the Raiders now see themselves as moving in a new direction with a new franchise quarterback, Adams could be on the verge of being traded for the second straight offseason.
