The Green Bay Packers did not get everything they wanted this offseason.
No one knows Adams’ reasons for leaving, especially when he’s putting up big numbers while playing alongside arguably the best quarterback in the league today.
However, life goes on for the Packers as they enter their first season after the Adams era.
Rodgers will continue to lead the Green Bay offense through his pinpoint passing.
But the biggest pressure of all might be on Randall Cobb‘s shoulders as he fills in for the All-Pro wide receiver from Fresno State.
That said, Rodgers is showing support for his teammate.

Rodgers tweeted, “All the feels in this @rcobb18” as a response to a two-minute video shared by CheeseheadTV’s Tyler Herrick.
Herrick captioned the video with, “No one is expecting Randall Cobb to fill the shoes of Davante Adams, but his leadership is going to be to critical to whomever is brought in to fill out the WR room in 2022.”
Cobb’s Redemption Tour Continues
Last season, Cobb returned to the Packers after playing for the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans.
But before playing for those teams, he suited up for Green Bay from 2011 to 2018.
“I needed to get away and reconnect with myself, find myself on a football field, and find my passion again. I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be playing again for this organization. Get to wear the G. Get to wear the green and gold. I thought that ship had sailed,” Cobb said in the video.
He also shared about Rodgers, “I’m so happy that we get to wear the same uniform and play together again. To see him do it for 17 years and see it up close and in person for nine of those years. He’s a special talent. He’s a special person to my life.”
Packers fans hope that Rodgers and Cobb will elevate their on-field connection to keep them in contention in the NFC.
