New Raider Davante Adams thanks Packers organization, fans

Newly acquired wide receiver Davante Adams posted on Instagram that he’s excited to get started with the Raiders, but also expressed great appreciation for his eight seasons with the Packers.

He thanked the Packers’ front office, his former teammates and the Green Bay fans.

Adams said wearing the Packers’ uniform was “one of the greatest honors of my life. From day one, you welcomed a kid from the Bay with open arms and made me and my family feel at home there.”

The Raiders acquired Adams in a blockbuster deal Thursday, sending the Packers their first- and second-round picks for next month’s NFL draft in Las Vegas. He has had at least 110 receptions in three of the past four seasons.
