Davante Adams has become a household name in the NFL, even if many struggle to spell it. Adams and the Green Bay Packers are two home wins from reaching the Super Bowl and the wide receiver has played a major role in getting them there. For those who continue to misspell Adams’ first name, he has some advice for you.
Davante Adams has blossomed in 2020
Despite missing nearly three full games this season, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams still managed to lead the NFL in touchdown receptions. He was also tops in yards per game. Adams has proven to be one of the best, if not the best, receivers in the league.
Besides his strong route-running and his great hands, what makes Adams so special is that he is successful without much help. The Packers don’t have a No. 2 wideout, never mind a No. 3. Teams know where quarterback Aaron Rodgers is going with the ball and Adams still gets the job done.
Despite missing two full games and much of another, Adams finished the season with a league-leading 18 touchdown receptions. He racked up 1,374 receiving yards. Adams had four games with 140 or more yards and he had a pair of three-touchdown games. He only failed to score a touchdown in three games.
Adams and the Green Bay Packers are red hot
The Green Bay Packers finished strong in 2020, allowing them to claim the NFC’s lone postseason bye. The Packers had the best record in the conference at 13-3 and won the final six games of the regular season. They claimed victories in eight of their last nine games.
The Packers offense has been rolling. In six of their last seven games, Green Bay put up 30-plus points. The Packers led the NFL in scoring and were just one of two teams (Buffalo Bills the other) to score more than 500 points this season.
Aaron Rodgers is a leading candidate to win his third MVP. He and Adams have been clicking all year. Aaron Jones is a dual-threat out of the backfield. Throw in home-field advantage at frigid Lambeau Field throughout the NFC playoffs and the Packers should be tough to beat in the conference.
Adams has a message for those who misspell his name
By now, Davante Adams is a recognizable name. The first name still gets butchered when it comes to spelling. Adams reached out via Twitter Monday night to address those who can’t spell his name.
“From now on if u misspell my name make sure it’s Devonta cuz he that boy,” Adams wrote. Adams took to social media during the college football title game between Alabama and Ohio State. Adams was referring to Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith.
Smith, the Heisman winner this season, had himself quite a first half. He had 12 catches for 215 yards and three touchdowns before halftime. Alabama crushed Ohio State 52-24.
