The Green Bay Packers are one of the teams Odell Beckham Jr. is reportedly considering playing for. Davante Adams is hoping his friendship with Beckham can make it happen. 

Adams hasn't been shy in recruiting Beckham to Green Bay, off to a 7-2 start and in the midst of another Super Bowl contending season -- which could be the final season with Aaron Rodgers as the team's starting quarterback. 

"They are pretty high, I'm not going to lie. Hopes are up there pretty high," Adams said, via Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal. "(I've) been talking to him a little bit, so we'll see what happens. But like I've said previously, I don't expect anything to happen — but if it does, that would be great."

Adams and Beckham have been friends since both were rookies at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine. Beckham was taken in the first round by the New York Giants and Adams in the second by the Packers. 

"It hasn't been extensive talks, but we definitely have entertained the idea — just trying to see where his mind is," Adams said. "I don't think he knows right now what the deal is...But it's a business, so there's lot that goes into it. It's not as easy as, 'We want him and he wants to be here.' So, we'll see what happens."

Beckham has only 17 catches for 232 yards and zero touchdowns in six games this season, expressing his frustration of his lack of involvement in the Cleveland Browns offense through outside sources like his father. The Browns publicly defended Beckham, even though both sides agreed it was better to move on -- which led to his release from the team earlier this week. 

Beckham had 114 catches for 1,586 yards and seven touchdowns in 29 games with the Browns, averaging 13.9 yards per catch. In Beckham's final game with Cleveland, he finished with just one catch for six yards.

Adams promised a higher lump-sum. 

"I can guarantee you we can get him more than that over here," Adams said with a big smile. "As long as he's good with two catches -- 12 yards, we should be straight."
