Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams is on his way to becoming the team’s no.1 wide receiver, according to NFL analyst Rob Demovsky of ESPN. Adams, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent after this season, has been putting up great numbers heading into week number six. The 24-year old wideout already hauled 23 receptions for 285 yards and four touchdowns this season.

The future go-to-guy

In his article, Demovsky opined that Adams will become the primary target in the backfield for quarterback Aaron Rodgers sooner or later. The wideout’s two touchdown performance against the Dallas Cowboys - just 10 days after he was rushed to the hospital as a result of a helmet-to-helmet hit from Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan – is only one of many reasons why the Packers should pay him top dollar.

Jordy Nelson might be the Packers’ no.1 wideout for now, but Demovsky is confident that Adams’ time as the go-to-guy will come.

Projected value in free-agency

Adams’ market value will only go higher if he keeps posting eye-popping numbers in the Packers’ remaining games. According to Demovsky, Green Bay might have no choice but to pay Adams "Dez Bryant money" (around $14 million per season) for them to keep him in the fold. There’s a possibility for the Packers to use the franchise tag on him. However, a $16MM+ investment for a single pass-catcher is unlikely given that they already shelled out loads of cash for Nelson and Randall Cobb.

Patterson to NFC favorite Packers

NFL legend and analyst Deion Sanders thinks it’s high time for the Packers to add one more piece to what’s starting to look like a Super Bowl caliber roster, encouraging Green Bay front office to make a move for Patrick Peterson.

The perennial All-Pro and Pro-Bowl player is still a shutdown cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals and many teams would take their chance at possibly acquiring a top-notch defensive player like Peterson. The Packers, a team many scribes and fans believe has the tools to win it all this year, is feasible at landing spot for Peterson, according to Sanders.

Patrick Peterson is a shutdown corner. He’s a prolific corner and he’s a prolific punt returner. But he’s getting frustrated in silent frustrations playing with the Arizona Cardinals. I wish they would let him go to a playoff contender, possibly a Super Bowl contender in the Green Bay Packers. That would be phenomenal. That would be good for the game and it would be good for both parties because Arizona can... get a whole lot for a Patrick Peterson,” Sanders said on the NFL show.
