The Adams Effect
Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick knows what it takes to be an elite player. However, he doesn’t think that Rodgers is suffering a physical decline. Instead, he believes that the signal-caller is missing his former wide receiver, Davante Adams. The Packers traded Adams after they handed Rodgers a massive new contract extension.
“I don’t think age has anything to do with the decline of the entire team and the decline of his play,” Vick said (via Yardbreaker). I just think that not having Davante Adams, I think we all underestimated that situation. Just that connection and I think Aaron did the same thing.” Ironically, Green Bay couldn’t keep Adams because they paid Rodgers too much money.
