There is no team that knows Adams better than the Chicago Bears. They have played against him 16 times in his career, and allowed him to catch 81-of-134 targets for 1,024 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Packers won 14 of those games.
How about the Bears signing Adams this offseason? That would be something that would bring joy to Chicago’s fanbase and misery to Green Bay.
The Bears are in a good position to make a huge move this offseason. They have approximately $30 million in cap space entering the new league year, and just so happen to have a pressing need at a star wide receiver. It appears as though Allen Robinson will not return, especially since he was franchise tagged by the team last year. Bringing in Adams would be huge for the development of quarterback Justin Fields.
There is also a Packers connection on the Bears. After the team hired Matt Eberflus as head coach, he brought in Green Bay passing game coordinator Luke Getsy as his offensive coordinator. Adams knows Getsy well, as he was also his wide receivers coach from (2016-17).
The Bears should absolutely make a run at Adams if he were to enter free agency.
If there is one team that has been consistently linked to Adams, it is the Las Vegas Raiders.
Adams already has a relationship with starting quarterback Derek Carr, as the two were teammates in college with the Fresno State Bulldogs. Adams recorded 233 receptions for 3,031 yards and 38 touchdowns in his two years at Fresno State with Carr as the starting quarterback. Carr has also not been shy in saying in the past that he would want to team up with Adams in the NFL.
The Raiders have a need at wide receiver after they parted ways with 2020 first-round pick Henry Ruggs for driving under the influence that led to a fatal car crash. Not to mention that Zay Jones and Desean Jackson are both set to hit free agency this offseason, and it is unknown if new general manager Dave Ziegler will pursue re-signing either of them.
With the Raiders coming off a Wild Card berth, they need to build upon their momentum to compete in the tough AFC West. Bringing in Adams to pair with Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller in Las Vegas’ passing attack would do wonders for the Raiders, who have over $21 million in cap space to work with.
