Packers WR Davante Adams mentioned that the decision to hire Matt LaFleur as the team’s next head coach is “a big change-up” from their prior offense and should be a “good way to mix things up a bit.”
“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, via NBC 26. “He’s a real young guy. It’s a big change-up from Mike’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.”
