Packers WR Davante Adams has heard ‘nothing but good things’ about Matt LaFleur
The Green Bay Packers made headlines with the hiring of Matt LaFleur as their new head coach. It appears wide receiver Davante Adams approves of the decision.
Lafleur has established himself as one of the more innovative, young minds in the NFL. According to Kelly Price of NBC26 in Green Bay, Adams is excited to see what he brings to the table:
“I’ve heard nothing but good things so far (about LaFleur), so that’s the good part,” Adams said.
“I kind of like what he’s trying to do with the offense and he’s pretty innovative, so it’ll be a good way to mix things up a bit,” Adams said. “He’s a real young guy. It’s a big change-up from Mike (McCarthy)’s style obviously just off of age alone. He’s really relatable, which is going to be really good. To be able to lead men, you have to entertain them and kind of hold, capture their attention and gain their respect, so he’s a guy I see we can definitely head in that direction with.”
It is encouraging to see that Adams already seems to be fond of his new head coach. LaFleur has come a long way over the past two seasons. He made a name for himself as offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams under Sean McVay during the resurgence last year. As a result, he was poached by the Tennessee Titans for the 2018 campaign.
There is no question that LaFleur is excited to have a bonafide No. 1 receiver on the roster like Adams. Despite the Packers’ struggles on offense this year, he managed to put together one of the best seasons in franchise history after hauling in 111 receptions for 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns. It is safe to assume that he will remain a heavy part of the game plan moving forward.
