Davante Adams has become one of the most elite receivers in the NFL.
Adams is a veteran at 29 years old and his voice carries weight in the game.
He recently explained what he tells young receivers looking to improve their game.
What he said is spot on and serves as fantastic advice for all young athletes.
This is an epic Davante Adams quote on what he tells young receivers to work on during the offseason, but my goodness, does this also apply to life, in general, in the social media age. #Packers pic.twitter.com/ZLSofzMXRm

Adams’ advice is simple.
He tells those young players to go run routes and do it at full speed.
His key point is to worry more about football and less about posting on social media.

This is fantastic advice for any young player trying to reach Adams’ level one day.
Simple But Sound Advice From A Great Receiver
Are these comments a direct shot at players like JuJu Smith-Schuster who seem to focus on TikTok just as much as football?
That statement alone is even unfair because those players who do have a large social media following are still dedicating their lives to football.
Adams’ point seems to be telling young receivers to give it their all in training.
And to work hard without feeling the need to post about it on social media every time they take the practice field.
There are even stars who like to post hype videos at any opportunity.
Odell Beckham Jr. is a name that comes to mind.
But he is an established star in the NFL.
Young players should listen to Adams because they will only earn more money if their hard work turns into better performance on the field.
That alone should eliminate the need or even the want to be posting on social media all the time.
