Davante Adams on Raiders: ‘If I wanted to be gone, I’d be gone’


In February, Raiders general manager Tom Telesco indicated that star wide receiver Davante Adams wouldn’t be traded when he said, “He’s a Raider.”

On Sunday, Adams made it clear that sentiment was mutual.

“If I wanted to be gone, I’d be gone by now,” Adams told reporters from his football camp, according to The Athletic. “This is where I want to be.”




The Raiders acquired Adams from the Packers in 2022 and then signed him to a five-year, $140 million contract extension. That still hasn’t stopped trade speculation the past two offseasons.

However, while he might have had some discontent with Josh McDaniels, his former coach, he is a staunch supporter of Antonio Pierce, his new coach. In January, Adams stumped for Pierce to have the interim tag removed from his title after he led the Raiders to a 5-4 record to end the season. Adams appears to be much happier now that Pierce was hired for the full-time role.


“It’s already helped the morale of the team. It’s what we were all looking for: To be able to continue with the same mindset that we had. That’s our guy,” he said Sunday, according to The Athletic.


Adams also told ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez during the week of the Super Bowl that he’s excited to work with new Raiders offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, who was on the Packers’ staff when he broke into the NFL in 2014.


“He’s the type of coach that’s open-minded … he’s going to be open to hearing things from the veteran players that know how this thing works and the best way to do things,” he said.
