When you thought the news couldn’t get any worse for Green Bay Packers fans, it does. It appears star wideout Davante Adams and his team have broken off negotiations for a long-term contract, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. This, of course, comes on the heels of MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers skipping OTAs and letting it be known that he doesn’t want to play for the Packers anymore.

Rapoport goes onto say that, “The two sides have been negotiating for months, but they are now in a bad place, sources say.” He also adds that there are no plans on resuming talks. Adams and Rodgers are the keys to the Packers offense and losing either would be a huge detriment to the team. Adams doesn’t seem to be positioning for a hold out, so he is likely on board to finish out his contract this season, but could be on the move in 2022 when he is a free agent.
