Packers wide receiver Davante Adams is likely to extend his stay in Green Bay after Aaron Rodgers reaffirmed his commitment to play in a green and yellow jersey for the upcoming season.

Based on his current contract, Adams will be a free agent on March 16 and the Packers put the franchise tag on the All-Pro receiver so they could continue negotiations for a long-term deal through July 15.

He was asked last season about the chance of being tagged, Adams said: “I’m not sure how to answer that safely right now. So, we’ll just cross that bridge when we get to it. I’ll just say that. I like to be professional on here.”

With Rodgers staying in Green Bay, the Packers had around $27.5 million over their 2022 projected cap, excluding Adams’ tag number, and they will have to work around that before they can offer the 29-year-old a deal.

Adams signed his recent contract back in December 2017 where he bagged an $18 million signing bonus and the contract itself averaged $14.5 million, which includes base salary and roster bonuses.

Adams certainly deserves a long-term deal as he set Green Bay’s single-season record for receptions (123) and receiving yards (1,553) last season.

The California-born receiver also recorded 120-plus catches, 1,500-plus yards and 11-plus touchdown catches in the same season, making him the sixth player in NFL history to do so.
