Tim Brown, Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver and Las Vegas Raiders legend, always tells it like it is. He’s seen it all with the Silver and Black in both his playing and post-playing careers. While speaking on the Maggie & Perloff show via CBS Sports, Brown dropped an interesting tidbit regarding Davante Adams. As we all know, the Raiders will soon be undergoing some changes, including at the quarterback position, which leaves many wondering how Adams feels about all this.
Adams made it clear that Derek Carr was indeed responsible for him joining the Raiders, but he’s yet to declare he won’t play without him. So far, nothing negative has come out of Adams’ camp. For now, at least, all systems go. Right now, the Raiders are beset with negative press, whether it’s the decision to part ways with Carr or the underwhelming 2022 season they had under head coach Josh McDaniels. With regard to Brown, the former wide receiver gave some insight into what’s possibly going on with Adams.
“I’m for sure that Davante is not too happy with this situation, and that’s just me believing that. So, I probably shouldn’t say that I’m for sure about it. I’ll just say it this way: if I [were] in his position, I would not be happy about what’s happening right now. That being said, it may never make the front pages, but I just got to figure he’s talking to them, going, ‘Hey, you guys got to do something here. I didn’t come here to play the next 5-7 years to play with some young kid.’ McDaniels has put himself into a tough position.”
Josh McDaniels, Davante Adams, and the Raiders are all in quite the predicament…
As it stands, the Raiders will either trade or cut Carr. Unless something dramatic changes, that is all we know. That leaves the Raiders without a starting quarterback for 2023. There’ll be some options that McDaniels has connections to, such as Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Jacoby Brissett. Or, the Raiders could draft a rookie to start right out of the gate. Either way, much remains unknown.
As Brown points out, the current situation is likely not what Adams envisioned when he arrived in Sin City. A player of Adams’ level surely can’t be too happy with how things have played out so far in his Raiders’ career. Brown was sure to clarify that he’s not speaking for Adams, but rather, he places himself in No. 17’s shoes. Either way, surely many Raiders fans share Brown’s sentiments.
