A complementary receiver just two years ago, Adams is now the top target in Green Bay, and the Packersí offseason release of Jordy Nelson confirmed that. The four-year, $58 million contract extension that the Packers gave Adams in December shows how important the 25-year-old is to their offense. Adams has scored double-digit touchdowns in consecutive seasons, scoring 10 last year despite missing the last two games. Adams is tethered to arguably the best quarterback in the league, Aaron Rodgers, and being the No. 1 receiver in the Packersí offense could be statistically lucrative.
The arrival of TE Jimmy Graham, a major red-zone threat, could cut into Adamsí TD total. Adams hasnít had a 1,000-yard season yet, and he has a modest career average of 11.9 yards per catch. He had two concussions last season, which is more than a little concerning. Adams has had problems with drops in the past.
As Aaron Rodgersí lead receiver, Adams could be in for a big year. Heís already established himself as a bountiful TD scorer, but now thereís reason to expect bigger reception and yardage totals. Donít hesitate to invest.
