The Green Bay Packers aren't opposed to making Davante Adams the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL, but the two sides disagree on the definition of the term.
Adams and his representatives believe DeAndre Hopkins is currently the highest-paid receiver at $27.25 million per year.
The Packers, however, view Hopkins' deal as closer to $20 million annually. That's because Hopkins' deal with the Arizona Cardinals was an extension to his previous contract. He was on a five-year, $81 million deal. So while the new money -- two years and $54.5 million -- indeed averaged $27.25, there were three years remaining on his previous contract.
"I think there's a little bit with that particular situation, it's how you interpret what the highest receiver in the National Football League is getting paid, you know what I mean?" Brian Gutekunst said.
