Davante Adams says trade to Raiders was ‘meant to be’

GREEN BAY – He spoke with his former college quarterback weekly, two friends sharing stories about life, reminiscing on the past, dreaming of the future whenever their NFL careers ended.

It didn’t matter what time of year. During the season. Offseason. The two college buddies always talked.

On the surface, nothing changed when Davante Adams and Derek Carr continued their conversations after last season. Only these conversations were different. Adams was about to become a free agent. They didn’t need to just dream about what future they might have after football.

Sometime between the Green Bay Packers’ stunning loss in the NFC divisional round against San Francisco, the team Adams grew up rooting against, those conversations became more about business. Adams had a chance, he knew, to rekindle the magic he and Carr shared in college. To not just reunite with his former quarterback, but to join the team Adams grew up rooting for.
