Davante Adams, like most of the Packers’ best receivers before him, didn’t come to Green Bay with a ready superstar. Instead, he learned from the veterans he had been with as he prepared for his time in the spotlight.
Adams came at a time when Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb were on the threat of 1,000-yard threats. Nelson came when Greg Jennings was in his prime. Greg Jennings became famous when Donald Driver was at his peak. Driver came up when Antonio Freeman was one of the famous.
On Sunday against the Seahawks, Adams did what he had to do: deliver a postseason performance as the No. 1 seed. One receiving option. He finished with eight catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns, taking the game at a pivotal moment to help coach Matt LaFleur lead the team to a 28-23 divisional-round victory.
