A year and a half after rejecting the Packers’ contract offers to facilitate a trade to the Raiders, wide receiver Davante Adams recently admitted to ESPN that his experience in Las Vegas is not what I wanted, suggesting the team has lacked a Super Bowl formula.

Shortly after making those comments, Adams voiced his frustration with his lack of involvement in the offense.

The perennial All-Pro has 13 catches on 21 targets for 131 receiving yards and no touchdowns over the past three games.

I’m sure people are thinking, ‘They won the game, why is there an issue?’ I mean, you see why it’s an issue, Adams said, via ESPN.

Y’all should know who I am, know what I’m about at this point … when you’re a player like me, mentally, my benchmark is not wins and losses — it’s greatness.

So when I go out there, I expect to be able to have that ability to put that on tape and have an influence on the game. That’s my purpose for being here. I’m not here just to hang out; I came here to win and to do it the right way.

Adams, who signed a five-year, $140 million deal with the Raiders in 2022, hasn’t requested a move out of town. And he remains committed to working toward a title run with Las Vegas, for now.
