Davante Adams, Packers Differ On Extension Amount 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 30, 2021 1:32 pm

The Green Bay Packers aren\'t opposed to making Davante Adams the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL, but the two sides disagree on the definition of the term.

Adams and his representatives believe DeAndre Hopkins is currently the highest-paid receiver at $27.25 million per year.

The Packers, however, view Hopkins\' deal as closer to $20 million annually. That\'s because Hopkins\' deal with the Arizona Cardinals was an extension to his previous contract. He was on a five-year, $81 million deal. So while the new money -- two years and $54.5 million -- indeed averaged $27.25, there were three years remaining on his previous contract.

\"I think there\'s a little bit with that particular situation, it\'s how you interpret what the highest receiver in the National Football League is getting paid, you know what I mean?\" Brian Gutekunst said.
