Inexperienced Bay Packers legend Aaron Rodgers wasted no time in roasting Davante Adams for his comparability to Derek Carr by making his personal Corridor of Fame claims.
As quickly as Aaron Rodgers set foot into camp, he ensured that NFL headlines would revolve round him and his heroic Con Air aura.
The back-to-back NFL MVP didn’t disappoint, firing a exact shot again at former Packers broad receiver Davante Adams.
“I imply it’s at all times powerful going from Corridor of Famer to Corridor of Famer,” Rodgers mentioned of transitioning from Adams to Allen Lazard. “From Davante to Allen, it’s gonna be a transition, however he’s able to quite a bit.”
Aaron Rodgers takes petty to a brand new stage with hilarious Davante Adams-Derek Carr jab
For context, Adams mentioned that each Carr and Rodgers had been future Corridor of Fame quarterbacks when requested about transitioning between the 2.
“Any time you modify quarterbacks from a Corridor of Famer to a Corridor of Famer, Stabler to Wealthy Gannon or whoever you go to, it’ll positively be just a little little bit of an adjustment,” Adams mentioned.
Adams has spent the offseason speaking up the abilities of Derek Carr who, in Adams’ protection, remains to be thought of underrated with reference to his capabilities. When Jeremy Fowler ranked the High 10 quarterbacks within the league, Carr’s title was conspicuously absent. Tyreek Hill meant to do the identical factor when saying that Tua Tagovailoa was extra “correct” than Mahomes, however as in Rodgers’ case, speaking up his new quarterback infected followers of his previous fanbase.
For Packers followers reveling in highlights of the heralded Rodgers-Adams connection — one which helped Rodgers safe these two consecutive MVPs — it’s straightforward to bristle on the comparability.
However Adams did expound on his assertion, clarifying what he meant just some days later.
“I used to be ready for this. Oh, God, I used to be ready for this,” Adams mentioned when requested about his earlier feedback.
“What I meant to say was even when you go Corridor of Famer to Corridor of Famer, it’s an adjustment. Even whether it is Corridor of Famer to Corridor of Famer, there’s going to be an adjustment. I wasn’t saying Corridor of Famer Aaron to Corridor of Famer Derek. So I’m not retracting my assertion in any respect. I didn’t ship that message the way in which I had it in my head. I didn’t imply to say precisely that.”
Rodgers, who’s famend for his pettiness in terms of controlling media narratives, made positive he despatched the message to Adams that he too might make Corridor of Fame predictions.
Hilarious as that is, Rodgers’ jab at Adams does come on the expense of an harmless bystander: Allen Lazard. All jokes apart, maybe Lazard can actually step up and have a breakout season in gentle of Adams’ absence.
