Packers Legend LeRoy Butler Suggests Team is Leaving No Stone Unturned to Give Aaron Rodgers His Next Davante Adams

After the Green Bay Packers inked Aaron Rodgers to a massive extension, the franchise shockingly traded the star quarterback’s favorite passing game weapon in Davante Adams. The Packers left a gaping hole in the offense that the front office must fill before the 2022 season.

Green Bay sits fixated on maximizing Rodgers’ remaining window to contend for another Super Bowl. All that has led former Packers star safety LeRoy Butler to voice a promising remark regarding the team’s efforts to replace Adams.

Davante Adams’ departure leaves a significant offensive void

The Packers’ decision to trade their best passing game weapon has gutted them of their most reliable offensive playmaking factor.

Over the last several seasons, Rodgers developed an irreplaceable connection with the star wideout. Adams is coming off another phenomenal campaign, where he set single-season franchise records with 123 catches for 1,553 yards. He became the sixth player in league history with at least 120 receptions, 1,500-plus yards, and 11-plus touchdown catches.

Meanwhile, Adams is the only player to record three seasons of at least 110 receptions, 1,350 receiving yards, and 11 touchdowns. His departure leaves the team in a tough spot, but that has led to an all-out effort in finding Rodgers his next star wideout.

Packers legend suggests team is leaving exploring all options to give Aaron Rodgers his next Davante Adams

Davante Adams’ departure has left a massive void in the passing game that the Packers must fill.

Reports have indicated that the franchise wants to bring aboard a new proven target for Aaron Rodgers. Former Packers star safety LeRoy Butler took to Twitter on Tuesday to voice that the organization is leaving no stone unturned to replace Adams.

“Make no mistake about it!” Butler tweeted. “The Packers are exploring Every option to replace 17, it might be someone who you would never guess that was available.”

The Packers’ front office doesn’t have a history of big-splash moves, especially at the wide receiver position. However, the franchise desperately needs a star wideout. The surprising potential options could see the team pursue Michael Thomas, DeAndre Hopkins, or DK Metcalf.

Thomas missed all of the 2021 season due to a foot injury, but he isn’t exactly on the most stable footing with the New Orleans Saints. Meanwhile, the uncertainty around Kyler Murray’s situation with the Arizona Cardinals may have led the Packers to attempt to pry away Hopkins. The All-Pro wideout saw his 2021 campaign end after Week 14 due to a torn MCL.

Lastly, Metcalf has become prominently mentioned in the open market since the Russell Wilson trade. However, the Seattle Seahawks have reportedly remained firm on declining offers. Other potential options could include Julio Jones or Odell Beckham Jr. in free agency, as both possess the proven track record to perform at an elite level.

Regardless of how much credence Butler’s comments hold, the Packers possess a major need at the wide receiver position.

Packers can add WR help through the draft

The Packers may bring in a proven commodity or two through a trade or free agency, but that won’t shut the door on adding passing game threats through the upcoming draft.

The 2022 draft class is filled with promising talents, such as Garret Wilson, Drake London, Jameson Williams, Treylon Burks, and Jahan Dotson. A few of these names may be off the board when the Packers are on the clock, but the organization possesses four picks within the first 60 selections sitting at 22nd, 28th, 53rd, and 59th.

It would be surprising to see the Packers not take at least one wide receiver to address their pressing need. Losing Adams is a significant blow, but Green Bay has its options to fill the massive void.
