Aaron Rodgers Found Davante Adams Trade 'Surprising'

May 1, 2022 3:50 PM

Aaron Rodgers said he was "surprised" by the Green Bay Packers trading Davante Adams this offseason in his first public comments since the move.

Speaking during an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers said he believed his return to the Packers would help the team ultimately reach a long-term deal with Adams.

"It was a little surprising with Davante -- obviously when I made my decision, I was still thinking he was going to come back," Rodgers said. "I was very honest with him about my plans and my future and where I saw my career going, as far as how many years I want to play. But I felt like he was going to be back, didn't obviously turn out that way but I have so much love for 'Tae and appreciate the time we spent together and definitely wish him the best in Derek [Carr] in Vegas. But that's a big hole to fill."
