Las Vegas Raiders' Davante Adams clarifies Aaron Rodgers-Derek Carr 'Hall of Famer' comparison

HENDERSON, Nev. — A laughing Davante Adams on Sunday clarified his current remarks that produced a stir when he compared Aaron Rodgers, his previous quarterback with the Green Bay Packers, to Derek Carr, his brand-new quarterback with the Las Vegas Raiders.

“Anytime you change quarterbacks from Hall of Famer to Hall of Famer … it’s going to be a little bit of an adjustment,” Adams informed CBS Sports on Friday.

Rodgers, who is entering his 18th NFL season, is a four-time league MVP and was likewise called MVP of the Packers’ Super Bowl XLV win.

Carr, who is entering his ninth NFL season, is a three-time Pro Bowler who holds practically every death record in Raiders franchise history and simply appeared in his very first championship game (a damaged best leg ended his season 2 video games prior to the 2016 postseason) however has a profession regular-season record of simply 57-70.

Adams compared his preliminary contrast to a musical gaffe.

“Being a rapper, it’s very vital, you’ve got to have the bars, obviously,” Adams stated Sunday. “You know you’ve got to have the bars. The line’s got to be there. But a very, very vital and critical piece of being a rapper is the delivery, right? I wasn’t a great rapper the other day.

“What I’m not going to do is eliminate from that declaration due to the fact that, why is Derek not a Hall of Famer? What I implied, I left one keyword out of there since that’s not precisely what I implied. But I do believe that Derek’s profession is Hall of Fame-worthwhile, and why not? Does he have the MVPs today? No. Has he won a Super Bowl? Not yet. That’s clearly what we’re chasing after.”

Adams and Carr were college teammates at Fresno State, and Carr’s presence in Las Vegas was a huge factor in the All-Pro receiver being traded to the Raiders this offseason.

“But what I implied to state was, ‘Even if you go Hall of Famer to Hall of Famer, it’s a modification.’ I wasn’t stating, ‘Hall of Famer Aaron to Hall of Famer Derek.’ So, I’m not withdrawing my declaration at all.”

In fact, Adams defended his once and current quarterback.

“Derek’s profession, truthfully, you take a look at the numbers that he’s had and what he’s needed to deal with and the hardship that he’s had in Oakland and concerning Vegas and the kind of things that’s been going on here in the past, which, ideally we’re putting all that things to bed, however, yeah, I didn’t provide that message the manner in which I had in my head,” Adams said. “So later on, when I saw [the original quote] drawn up, it sort of made my stomach drop a bit due to the fact that I resembled, ‘Oh, god, here we go. People are going to blow this up and take whatever I state, and we’re the only group in camp today.'”

Adams laughed.

“But what I’m not going to do is state Derek is not going to be a Hall of Famer due to the fact that at the end of the day I think — and this is not putting any expectations or any additional pressure on him due to the fact that he puts that kind of pressure on himself due to the fact that of what he anticipates each time he touches the field,” Adams said. “But yeah, I did not indicate to state precisely that. I’m going to repeat — even if you go from Hall of Famer to even another Hall of Famer, it’s going to be a modification. Any time you alter quarterbacks, is what I was getting at. So, take that and kept up it and do whatever you wish to finish with it.”
