Ian Rapoport reported recently that the Raiders were uninterested in trading Adams, despite recruitment attempts by Jets QB Aaron Rodgers.

Adams, 31, is a former second-round pick out of Fresno State by the Packers in the 2014 NFL Draft. He was in the final year of a four-year, $3.933 million rookie contract when the Packers signed him to a four-year extension worth $58 million.

Adams made a base salary of $12 million for the 2021 season and was set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2022 when the Packers used the franchise tag on him at a figure of $20.2 million. He was then traded to the Raiders for a first and second-round draft pick in 2022.

In 2023, Adams appeared in 17 games for the Raiders and caught 103 passes for 1,144 yards receiving and eight touchdowns.
