fresh off setting the franchise’s single-season record for receptions and matching Sterling Sharpe’s 18 touchdowns, spoke Monday on “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd on Fox Sports Radio.
“It doesn’t mean potentially I’d be gone, but I’d definitely have to do some extra thinking if my guy wasn’t here,” Adams said when asked how he’d evaluate his future in Green Bay.

Adams said he had spoken to Rodgers since news first broke on April 29, mere hours before the NFL draft, that the quarterback didn’t want to return to Green Bay. In the days since, former teammates John Kuhn and James Jones have given interviews suggesting there’s an opportunity for the team and player to mend fences, but still others like Brett Favre have cast doubt on that relationship being repaired.
“That’s my guy; that’s the only guy I’ve had (at quarterback),” Adams said. “Except for the 2017 season when he got hurt, that’s the only guy that I’ve played with. We’ve built up a special connection over the years that have put us both in really good positions in our career, not that he needed me to come along for it because he was already in that spot, but we established a lot together.”
A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Adams was named first-team All-Pro in 2020 for the first time in his career.
“A lot is still being figured out, so it’s tough for me to get into specifics and speak on it,” Adams said. “Honestly, I would love to. I can’t wait to get on here and tell you that he’s back and we’re back doing our thing that we’ve been doing. But for now, we’ve got to iron out a few things and hopefully I’ll be back on the show, we’ll be celebrating.”
