    Packers Signing Davante Adams To Extension

    Friday, December 29, 5:02 PM

    The Green Bay Packers are signing wide receiver Davante Adams to a four-year, $58 million extension on Friday, according to a source. He'll be given an $18 million signing bonus, and he'll receive $32 million in the first two years of the new deal. Adams missed three games with injury this year, but when on the field he was the team's best and most consistent wideout, even with quarterback Brett Hundley filling in for Aaron Rodgers (collarbone). Adams will wind up missing the final two games of the season with a concussion, but he finished 2017 with 74 catches for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns. Adams was due to become a free agent after this season. He could continue to be Green Bay's No. 1 wideout into 2018 with Jordy Nelson showing signs of slowing down with one year left on his deal.

    Davante Adams Biography

    Davante Adams was born to Douglas and Pamela Adams and attended Palo Alto High School. He was a key two-way player in his senior year, when Palo Alto won a state championship. During this season, he had 64 catches for 1,094 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, he was a gifted cornerback who had 44 tackles, an interception, and two forced fumbles.

    He was also the kind of two-sport athlete that Madden has suggested shows off a true talent. He lettered all fours years in high school basketball, averaging a solid nine points and snagging just under six rebounds and six assists.


    Adams shined in college when he was recruited by Fresno State. After redshirting his first year, he played in 2012 and had 102 receptions for 1,312 yards while scoring 14 touchdowns. He was the Freshman of the Year for the Mountain West conference and MVP of the 2012 Hawaii Bowl.

    In 2013, he had 131 receptions for 1,719 yards while scoring 24 touchdowns. This made him the leading receiver in the nation, setting a Mountain West record for touchdowns: he currently ranks fourth in all of college football history. He declared his intention to enter the 2014 draft late in the 2013 season.

    The Combine And NFL Draft

    In his NFL combine prior to the draft, Davante Adams was rated a 5.96. His 40 time was 4.56 seconds, his broad jump 123 inches, his three cone drill time 6.82 seconds, and the 20-yard shuffle 4.30 seconds. He received top performer marks in his vertical jump, which was 39.5 inches.

    Adams scores and Fresno history were impressive enough to inspire the Green Bay Packers to draft him in the second round. When signed, he earned a four-year contract of $3,933,402. His base salary has risen every year since he signed, from a starting $420,000 to a projected $956,373 in 2017.

    2015 NFL Season

    After a relatively low key rookie 2014 season (with just 38 receptions and 446 yards), Davante Adams had a strong season in 2015 with 50 receptions for 483 years. In a packed lineup, Adams remained a reliable third-option who never fumbled and who averaged just under 10 yards every reception. The only area he declined was in touchdowns: in 2014, he had three while in 2015 he had one.

    2016 NFL Season

    With injuries plaguing the Packers and Rodgers struggling to play consistently, the Packers fell to a surprising 4-6 record and were trailing division rivals Detroit Lions. In this scenario, Davante Adams emerged for his breakout season and became one of the key cogs in an 8-0 streak that led the Packers to the playoffs.

    In 16 games  Adams had 75 receptions and a staggering 997 yards. This was good for an average of 13.3 yards per reception. While losing just one of two fumbles, his touchdowns jumped to a staggering 12 (with one two-point conversion) giving him a total of 74-points for the 2016 regular season.

    Personal Life

    Adams was born in Palo Alto, where he attended high school and excelled in both football and basketball. During his senior year, he was one of the most highly-recruited receivers in the nation. Succeeding in college helped him catch the eye of a beautiful young woman named Devanne Villarreal.

    Villarreal is still together with her childhood sweetheart and was with him at home when he was drafted. She finished her degree at Fresno State and is now an esthetician. His Twitter and Instagram accounts show a pleasant and low-key young man who is enjoying his success.
