Raiders GM says Davante Adams won’t be traded

As the Las Vegas Raiders move through the offseason, much of the chatter will be around star WR Davante Adams.

The star wideout remains the subject of trade chatter after the Raiders failed to make the playoffs for a second straight campaign.

However, new general manager Tom Telesco quickly shot down any notion that the All-Pro talent would be moved.

Adams remains one of the league’s top receivers despite experiencing a drop in production with his lowest receiving yards per catch (11.1) since 2015 and his fewest touchdowns (eight) since 2019.

The Raiders are hoping that their coaching changes, namely bringing aboard Luke Getsy as the offensive coordinator, will jumpstart the offense back in the right direction.

“Open-mindedness and, like I said, that innovation to the offense and a good run-pass balance,” Adams said of Getsy via ESPN. “And that’s what I’m used to, that West Coast style. Going to be fun getting to work on a new system, [yet] something that’s a little bit more familiar.”

Meanwhile, Las Vegas’ biggest free agent will be former Pro Bowl running back Josh Jacobs.

Jacobs is coming off a career-worst campaign, where he posted career lows with 805 rushing yards, 3.5 yards per carry, and six rushing touchdowns.

It comes after putting together his best season in 2022, where he set career highs across the board with 1,653 rushing yards, 4.9 yards per attempt, and 12 rushing touchdowns while playing in all 17 games.

Telesco voiced a strong desire to bring Jacobs back.

“He’s a Raider and he was drafted by the Raiders, so he’s a high-level player,” Telesco said. “So yeah, we’re going to explore pretty hard to see if we can bring him back here and kind of go from there. But as far as a player, running game, passing game, pass protection, he can really help you win games.”

Time will tell if the Raiders can keep their star running back in tow.
