Davante Adams said he wouldn't play under the franchise tag for the Green Bay Packers, and that appears to be the case.

The Las Vegas Raiders are acquiring Adams from the Packers in exchange for their 2022 first- and second-round picks, and giving the superstar receiver a new five-year, $141.25 million contract,

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.

Adams will make a per-year average of $28.25 million and becomes the new highest-paid wide receiver in NFL history, Rapoport added.

The picks being sent to Green Bay are the No. 22 and No. 53 overall in April's 2022 NFL Draft.

Rapoport reported that Adams agents confirmed the Packers offered the wideout more money than the contract he'll receive from the Raiders but it was his lifelong dream to play for the Silver and Black

It's a deal that's quietly been in the works for days with the teams finalizing details and the contract extension for Adams being worked out.

It is expected to be completed barring any late setbacks, per Rapoport.

Adams, 29, has long been part of a splendid tandem with two-time reigning AP NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers´╗┐, who recently re-signed with the Packers.

Rodgers was aware during his contract negotiations that Adams "would never play for the Packers again" as "the situation was too far gone," Rapoport reported.
