Current Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver and former Green Bay Packer, Davante Adams, joined Amber Theoharis (Sirus XM) and former Packers WR James Jones in there first episode of the Two Gs in a Pod podcast.

Davante Adams wants Kirk Cousins as his quarterback?

During the show, Adams was asked a bunch of questions about his career and his current situation with the Raiders. But then, Theoharis asked Davante, if he could catch passes from any quarterback in the league other than Aaron Rodgers, who would it be?

Adams hesitated in his response and changed the question a little bit, but said that there are a couple of QBs he has his eyes on right now (remember, Vegas is without a clear starting QB). After a light chuckle, Davante started talking about how much he likes Kirk Cousins and his possible availability (10:30 mark – transcribed below).

“I’ll say this… there’s a couple of quarterbacks I really like. If we’re talking about a dude that can just find somebody, I mean, I like Kirk Cousins. I think Kirk Cousins is a really good quarterback. As far as availability, I think Kirk’s a good player.”

Kirk Cousins To Las Vegas?

As of Tuesday, we haven’t heard much for rumblings of Cousins to Vegas. But the Raiders have a need at QB and Kirk Cousins is set to become a free agent in mid-March. So if their superstar wide receiver is eyeing a new QB1, you can bet Raiders decision makers will listen.

Cousins has mentioned many times that he will prioritize winning, while deciding where to play next season. Have the Raiders built a good enough roster to reel Kirk in? Maybe not, but money and great wide receivers have a way of convincing QBs into things they might not be interested in otherwise.

The Raiders took the interim tag off Antonio Pierce recently, and former Chargers GM Tom Telesco was just named their next general manager. If Telesco’s mission is to make the Vegas roster as competitive as possible in 2024, there’s probably not a better QB option than Kirk Cousins, should he make it to free agency.

Davante Adams to Minnesota Vikings?

Who knows what GM Kwesi Adofo Mensah is up to today, hopefully off somewhere trying to figure out the best way to make sure Justin Jefferson, Kirk Cousins and Danielle Hunter are all under contract next season. Because if Davante Adams openly wants to catch footballs from Kirk, you can guarantee there are a lot of others who are dreaming about the same thing.

During this season, Adams showed his frustration within the organization, and many thought he would be traded, but wasn’t. Anything can happen in the NFL and it’s shown the last few years, so who knows. We are in for an entertaining offseason.

But if the Minnesota Vikings are making plans to let Kirk walk away this offseason, they’re doing a great job of hiding it. Today, they posted a featured video of Cousins participating in their ‘Ready. Set. Send’ campaign, in partnership with TCO Orthopedics.
