Josh Jacobs Texted Davante Adams About Returning to Packers After RB's Raiders Exit

After departing the Las Vegas Raiders to sign with the Green Bay Packers this offseason, star running back Josh Jacobs was hoping to bring one of his former teammates along with him.

Jacobs revealed to reporters on Wednesday that after he signed his four-year deal with the Packers, he texted star receiver Davante Adams to jokingly gauge his interest in returning to Green Bay.

"When I came out here ... I sent him the little eyes emoji," Jacobs said. "I said, 'You thinking about coming back?' But man, he loved it."

Adams spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Packers before being traded to the Raiders prior to the 2022 season.
