It’s tough to replace a player who had 123 receptions, 1,553 yards, and 11 touchdowns last season.
He also has at least 1,000 receiving yards in three of the last four years.
Adams has consistently been one of the league’s best wideouts after becoming a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time First-Team All-Pro.
The Fresno State alumnus was also the NFL’s receiving touchdowns king in 2020.
But as Aaron Rodgers decided to remain with the Packers on a three-year deal, Adams felt that it would be better to continue his career elsewhere.
That said, he was reunited with his college teammate Derek Carr with the Las Vegas Raiders.
The 29-year-old wide receiver also signed a five-year, $141.25 million deal, making him the highest-paid player in that position by the time of signing.
During the NFL’s annual meeting at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur kept it real when he discussed their current depth chart at wide receiver.

Packers Desperately Need An Upgrade At Wide Receiver
As it stands, Green Bay needs to add a dash of speed to help them stretch the field against defensive backs.
Unfortunately, they don’t have a player who effortlessly leaves cornerbacks and safeties behind.
Their combined stats for last season amount to 72 receptions, 933 yards, and 13 touchdowns.
If one receiver (Adams) surpassed the numbers of these three players, the more that they need reinforcements at wide receiver.
