Davante Adams Explains Derek Carr–Aaron Rodgers Comparison

The internet had a field day with Davante Adams’s comments from a recent CBS Sports Interview where he compared Aaron Rodgers and his new quarterback Derek Carr and referred to Carr as a future Hall of Famer. But on Sunday I addressed those comments.

“Any time you change quarterbacks from Hall of Famer to Hall of Famer, you go Stabler to Rich Gannon, it’s going to be a little bit of an adjustment,” Adams told CBS Sports. “Both are great players and great to be around.”

NFL fans took exception to the comparison between Rodgers, a four-time MVP and Super Bowl champion, and Carr, who is 0–1 in the postseason but has been named to three Pro Bowls. Not only did he clarify his comments about him, but Adams doubled down.

“What I’m not going to do is take away from that statement because, why is Derek not a Hall of Famer?” Adams said Sunday, per ESPN. “What I meant, I left one keyword out of there because that’s not exactly what I meant. But I do think that Derek’s career is Hall of Fame-worthy, and why not? Does he have the MVPs right now? No. Have you ever won a Super Bowl? Not yet. That’s obviously what we’re chasing.
