He has been a First-Team All-Pro member over the last two seasons after compiling 1,374 and 1,553 receiving yards, respectively.
For now, the Raiders have won the trade because they got a proven commodity and it might take time before the players that the Green Bay Packers selected will blossom.
It elevates their offense to another level with Adams being a potent deep threat.
Likewise, Derek Carr could have a 5,000-yard season now that he is reunited with his teammate from Fresno State.
More importantly, the Raiders will have Adams at the peak years of his career which could make him an unstoppable force in the open field.
From a team perspective, Adams would love to help bring a Super Bowl to a franchise that last won the title in 1983.
But individually, Josh McDaniels’ system may help him prolong his dominance over the league.

NFL Network’s James Palmer shared that Adams leads the league in receptions (432), receiving yards (5,310), and receiving touchdowns (47) since 2018.
These numbers help explain why he was ranked the best wide receiver as of today in a recent poll by ESPN from NFL coaches, players, scouts, and executives.
Coincidentally, that was the first year he reached the 1,000-yard milestone with 1,386 yards on 111 receptions to go with 13 touchdowns.

That way, Adams will get more targets that will help increase his numbers.
Developing chemistry between Carr and Adams won’t be a problem because they have played together in college.
It’s just a matter of rediscovering their connection to build on a fantastic opportunity.
