NFL Moves: Packers Trade Adams To Raiders, Watson Looking At NFC South Teams

Jonathan Grant | March 18th, 2022

The Green Bay Packers are getting Aaron Rodgers back for the 2022 NFL season. That doesn’t mean that everything is going to remain the same, though. According to sources, they have moved on from wide receiver Davante Adams, the four-time MVP’s favorite target, shipping him to the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for the #22 and #53 selections in this coming draft. The 29-year-old’s move isn’t all that surprising as he had been asking for a deal like this seeing as how Vegas immediately signed him to a five-year contract that is guaranteed to net him $67.5 million overall and up to $28.5 million per season.

The Pack will now need to find wide-out help for Rodgers if they are to make another run toward the Super Bowl crown they yearn for. In other NFL action, there could be a move under center for either the New Orleans Saints or the Atlanta Falcons, as reports state that maligned Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson only has those teams left on the board as far as options are concerned. Watson didn’t play last year because he was in a contract dispute with Houston and he also has sexual misconduct allegations that he’s dealing with, but both of the NFC South teams are interested in acquiring his services nonetheless. The Saints haven’t had a franchise, go-to QB since Drew Brees retired while the Falcons seemingly never know what they have in Matt Ryan, so it will be intriguing to see which of the teams lands Watson and how well (or how much) he can play once he does get there.
