Derek Carr wants to beat Davante Adams in Super Bowl, then recruit him for Raiders
Derek Carr has not finished talking about a reunion with Davante Adams.
Carr, the Raiders quarterback who played with Adams at Fresno State, said on Cris Collinsworth’s podcast that the tampering rules don’t apply to players, and so Carr will continue to talk to Adams about coming to Las Vegas, although Adams is under contract with the Packers for another year.
“Davante is one of my best friends,” Carr said. “I will give him whatever I have to offer.” I’m going to buy him a car, whatever I have to do, I’ll give it to this man. I know it would integrate perfectly with the receivers we have here. He would look so good in this room. I have the right to say these things. Our organization is not, but I will say it. He’s my best friend, I think he’s one of the best, he’s the best receiver in the NFL.
Carr said his ideal scenario would be for the Raiders to beat the Packers in the Super Bowl in February, and then Adams to sign with the Raiders in free agency in March.
“He’s focused on being a Packer and I know that because I see how he works,” Carr said. “I know how he works and I know how much it means to him. He’s focused on that and I’m focused on trying to get to the Super Bowl, to win the Super Bowl, I hope he gets in there so I can beat his butt too. That’s the plan, then recruit him from the dark side.
Adams has been more cautious, saying he won’t be talking about playing for anyone other than the Packers for now. Carr, however, will continue to say how much he would like the two former Fresno State teammates to be teammates in Las Vegas.
