No, Brett Favre does not believe Davante Adams will be as good with the Las Vegas Raiders.

With Davante Adams switching teams this offseason, Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre does not think he will find similar success now that he is with the Las Vegas Raiders.

“It’s just hard to shift gears, especially from a player as prolific as Aaron Rodgers,” said Favre to TMZ Sports. “I think Derek Carr is a very good quarterback, but, he’s not in Aaron’s league yet. May never be, and that’s no disrespect.”

Adams had spent his entire professional career in Green Bay prior to being traded to the Raiders this past spring. He reunites with his college teammate and close friend Derek Carr in Las Vegas. Adams grew up on the West Coast and rooted for the Raiders as a youth. While Rodgers is the two-time reigning NFL MVP, Adams does have a strong rapport with Carr, who is not retiring soon.

Here is the entire clip of Favre speaking with TMZ Sports about the wide receiver switching teams.

Look. Adams is entering his age-30 season out of Fresno State. Rodgers may forever be the better player over Carr, but one is going to be out of the league in three years and the other is not. While it may have served Adams to stay put in Green Bay for as long as Rodgers decided to play, he has to do what is in the best interest of his career and family long-term. Maybe this was in Las Vegas?

Though the Raiders have been poorly run throughout much of Adams’ lifetime, the Silver and Black did make the AFC playoffs last year with an interim head coach. Carr is a proven Pro Bowl-level commodity under center. With other elite playmakers in the receiving corps like Hunter Renfrow in the slot and Darren Waller at tight end, there are reasons to be bullish on Las Vegas.

However, Green Bay does play in the weaker of the two NFL conferences. Outside of the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who else is challenging the Packers this season in the NFC? Las Vegas will have success this year and beyond, but Favre is right that Rodgers is the better quarterback, who did benefit from playing in a better organization.

Even if Adams downticks for a year or two, Las Vegas has the shot to be a better long-term spot.
