Packers WR Davante Adams, who’s currently in the final year of his rookie contract, says he isn’t even thinking about his contract situation this year.
“That’s definitely not the type of focus you want to go into a season with,” Adams said, via Rob Reischel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I’ve seen so many guys come into that way and lose focus and lose sight of what they’re actually playing for. You play to get a ring, so I’m not out here thinking about the money. I’m just trying to play ball and do what I can to help this team out. All that stuff will take care of itself at the end of the year or whenever it does. We’ll let it happen then.”
Adam added that he’s in a “perfect place” right now.
“I’m in a perfect place for me and I’m happy where I’m at right now and just going into this season focused and ready to have another successful season.”
Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard mentioned that they have free agent acquisition Bradley McDougald working as both a free safety and strong safety and will likely be the team’s No. 3 safety this year.
“Obviously he is learning both free safety and strong safety, and in the event that something happens to either Kam or Earl, we’re looking for him to be the first safety going into the football game,” Richard said, via TheNewsTribune. “He has done a fantastic job for us. We’re very happy to have him here.”
- Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes that Teddy Bridgewater getting cleared and returning at some point during the 2017 season can’t be ruled out.
- According to Vensel, former first-round WR Laquon Treadwell was working exclusively the third wideout alongside Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.
- Vensel mentions that the only offensive line job still up for grabs appears to be at center where Nick Easton and rookie Pat Elfein are battling for the job.
- Vensel considers DE Danielle Hunter to be a “big breakout candidate this season.”
