Superstar Davante Adams has no intention of leaving the Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders are seemingly headed toward another direction under center after benching former Pro Bowl quarterback Derek Carr for the final two games of the 2022 season.

All that immediately put star wide receiver Davante Adams’ long-term future in Las Vegas into question due to his strong connection to Carr. Despite that, Adams has quickly crushed any notion that he could want out next offseason.

“Yeah, absolutely, I wouldn’t have been here or ended up here, originally, probably if Derek wasn’t here,” Adams said in his weekly media conference via ESPN. “But that doesn’t necessarily mean that I won’t be here in the event that he’s not here. That’s my boy. Obviously, I’ve got his back through anything. I think I’ve made that more than clear at this point. I support him and I support everything that he has moving forward as well.

“But my dream was to play for this team before he was a Raider, and at this point I want to try to make this thing work and continue on doing what I’m doing here, myself get better and see the team grow and get better as well.”

Adams definitively reaffirming his commitment to the Raiders publicly lifts additional attention away from the Carr situation. Although the All-Pro wideout would want to continue his Raiders’ tenure with his former college teammate, he will be a significant part of whatever direction the team heads.
