Player News
05/13/2014 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: GREEN BAY PACKERS: Round 2/53 -- Davante Adams, WR, 6-1, 212, Fresno St.,...With wideout James Jones leaving as a free agent, and with free agent tight end Jermichael Finley unlikely to return, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was left without a full deck of pass-catching targets. The arrival of Adams should fill a big void, giving Rodgers another inviting receiver to stretch the field and complement Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. All the jump-happy Adams did the last two seasons in Fresno State's pro-style attack triggered by Derek Carr, taken 17 picks earlier in round two by the Oakland Raiders, was catch and run with the football in great numbers. - The Sports Xchange
