Adams dreamed of this moment since 3rd grade, when he predicted in his yearbook he would be an NBA or NFL star when he got older. What was Adams wearing in his yearbook photo? A Charles Woodson jersey.
If you think that story sounds a little too convenient, Adams showed his work.
Adams also supported Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown, who predicted Adams would “demolish my records” on Twitter.
@Raiders Alright Raider Nation! I just spoke with @tae15adams. Y’all are gonna love him! A little background: my wife and his dad’s fiance were good friends in Oakland, I’ve been hearing about him since he started playing the game. Now i get to watch him demolish my records! Lol! pic.twitter.com/YNmG91cDOj

Following his press conference, Adams sent a message to Raiders fans, telling them he “could not be more excited” to be a member of the franchise.
Davante Adams surprisingly dealt to Raiders
Adams was traded to Las Vegas on Thursday in a surprising move. Adams, considered the best receiver in the NFL, spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Green Bay Packers. He expressed frustration with Green Bay after the team gave Adams the franchise tag. Adams said he would not play under the tag, hinting that he wanted a long-term extension.
Adams is coming off his second consecutive All-Pro season. He gained 1,553 yards and scored 11 touchdowns in 16 games with the Packers. He managed that despite being double covered at an extreme rate.
