1. Davante Adams

  • Years with Packers: 2014-21

  • Receiving yards with Packers: 8,121

  • Receiving touchdowns with Packers: 73

Aaron Rodgers said that Davante Adams is the best player he’s ever played with. That says a lot. Rodgers has been teammates with Charles Woodson, Julius Peppers, Jordy Nelson, and Clay Matthews, just to name a few.

During his eight-year stay in Green Bay, Adams became the NFL’s number one wide receiver and shattered multiple single-season franchise records.

Adams finished his Packers career with 8,121 yards and a mind-boggling 73 touchdown catches in 116 games. He has made the Pro Bowl five years in a row and is a two-time first-team All-Pro.

Only Donald Driver has more career receptions for Green Bay. Adams also ranks fourth for receiving yards in franchise history and second in receiving touchdowns.

He owns single-season franchise records for receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns.

Adams ranks first, second, and fourth for most receptions in a single season in Packers history.

Adams wins with his world-class release off the line. Defensive backs are immediately put on the back foot and stand no chance with Adams’ smooth route-running.

This offseason, Adams was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders. But no matter what he does the rest of his career, he will forever be a Green Bay Packers legend.

This season, it will be the first time since 2007 that Green Bay has had a wide receiver corps without either Davante Adams or Jordy Nelson. Two irreplaceable talents. All-time greats.
