Chargers WR Keenan Allen recruiting Davante Adams to LA after GB extension talks die


Extension talks have fallen apart between Davante Adams and the Green Bay Packers, so Chargers wideout Keenan Allen is already recruiting the four-time Pro Bowl receiver to Los Angeles.

“come on home brother! Come on home!” Allen wrote on Twitter, tagging Adams.

Adams is a native of Redwood City, near Palo Alto in Northern California. He played college football at Fresno State. (Not exactly Los Angeles, but we’ll give Allen a pass on that one.)

Earlier on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Adams’ camp has broken off long-term extension talks with the Packers after months of unsuccessful negotiations.

Adams was selected in the 2nd round (No. 53 overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. He’s spent his entire career catching passes from Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.

The Chargers’ receiving depth chart looks pretty good, but any team could use Davante Adams. At the moment, Los Angeles lists Allen, Mike Williams (a stud), Jalen Guyon (511 yards in 2020), Tyron Johnson, and 2021 3rd-round pick Joshua Palmer as the top wideouts around quarterback Justin Herbert.

Adams, 28, has sniffed 1,400 yards in two of the last three seasons. He led the NFL with 18 receiving touchdowns and 98.1 receiving yards per game in 2020. Rodgers threw 48 TDs and won the league’s MVP award as the Packers rolled to 13 wins. They lost to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game.

Should Rodgers opt out of the 2021 NFL season or successfully wriggle a trade from the Packers, Adams will only be more incentivized to seek greener pastures.
