Leave it to social media for making a big deal out of nothing once again.
Davante Adams caught the attention of online sleuthers when he posted a cryptic Instagram post right around the time Jimmy Garoppolo signed with the Raiders and when news that Aaron Rodgers was being traded to the Jets was being considered ‘done.’
All in all, Adams just wants everyone to know that they shouldn’t read too much into it.
Don’t make too much of it…phone dry then here comes everybody tryna get the inside scoop. Shit is annoying thats it. Jimmy let’s get this 💰 👊🏾

What are people saying now?
Shortly after he made the first Instagram story, Adams made another, proving that the original was, in fact, not about football. The second post was another black screen with white text, but much more hyped.

Sad he has to explain himself because people take things the way they want to and not the way he means. https://t.co/9zPFlMbNgX

What is Jimmy Garoppolo’s contract with the Raiders?
Garoppolo is joining the Raiders on a three-year deal at a base level of $72.25 million, a hefty step up from the $67.5 million that was confirmed earlier Monday morning.
New #Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo’s three-year deal has a base value of $72.75 million, including $24.25M in Year 1.
An $11.25M roster bonus on the third day of the 2024 league year is guaranteed. So Jimmy G is effectively locked in as Las Vegas’ starter for two years and $48.5M.

Garoppolo is joining a heavy Raiders offensive line, as their starting quarterback, with Adams, Josh Jacobs, Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller.
What is Davante Adam’s contract with the Raiders?
Adams signed a five-year extension with the Raiders with $140 million last offseason, keeping him tethered to the Las Vegas area through the 2026 season.
