Davante Compares Derek Carr to Aaron Rodgers, Calls a Hall of Famer

Although Derek Carr is a skilled quarterback, most football fans and players would agree that Aaron Rodgers is probably a step ahead of him in terms of signal-caller ranks and Hall of Fame potential.

Davante Adams is not included in that category.

When asked about the transition from catching passes from Rodgers on the Green Bay Packers to Carr in Sin City, the wide receiver for the Las Vegas Raiders replied,

"Anytime you change quarterbacks from Hall of Famer to Hall of Famer... it's going to be a little bit of an adjustment."

Adams will undoubtedly stand up for Carr.

They did play together in college at Fresno State, and they'll now try to compete for a Lombardi Trophy in the professional ranks.

The wide receiver, who the Raiders obtained in a trade with the Packers, also decided to sign a five-year contract with them this offseason, ensuring that he will play alongside Carr for the foreseeable future.

Even so, it would be a big leap to assume that he will join Rodgers in the Hall of Fame.

On the short list of the greatest players at his position in NFL history, the Packers' quarterback is a four-time MVP, one-time Super Bowl champion, 10-time Pro Bowler, and four-time All-Pro pick.

Although Carr has made three Pro Bowls and has thrown for more than 4,000 yards each of the previous four seasons, he has yet to win a playoff game in his career.

Adams should aid him in that endeavour, but the Raiders are still in a competitive division with the Denver Broncos, Justin Herbert's Los Angeles Chargers, and Patrick Mahomes' Kansas City Chiefs.

Adams is at least used to catching passes from Carr from their time together in college,

which will help determine how competitive the Raiders are in the AFC West depending on how well he adjusts to a team other than the Packers for the first time in his career.

If he stays among the top wide receivers in the NFL while playing for the Silver and Black, he might even enhance the quarterback's Hall of Fame resume.
