Reunited and it feels so good.
Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers hung out over the weekend together with his former Packers teammate and friend, Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams, before their teams’ “Sunday Night Football” clash in Las Vegas.
Adams, 30, posted a photograph of the pair on his Instagram Story, which Rodgers, 39, reshared on his page.
Chosen by the Packers within the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Adams eventually became certainly one of Rodgers’ top targets in Green Bay.
He surpassed 1,000 receiving yards thrice with the Packers, including his final season with the team in 2021.
Adams was traded to the Raiders in March 2022 — a move that paired him together with his former Fresno State quarterback, Derek Carr — while Rodgers remained with the Packers.
The four-time league MVP was then traded to the Jets in an April blockbuster.
Since moving to different teams, nonetheless, Rodgers and Adams have endured challenges.
Rodgers has been sidelined since Week 1 after suffering an Achilles injury just 4 plays into his Jets profession.
As for Adams, he essentially became an afterthought within the Raiders’ offense and erupted on the sidelines in a Week 8 loss to the Lions.
The Jets inquired about Adams on the trade deadline last month but were rebuffed.
Very like Rodgers, other members of Gang Green have envisioned Adams in a Jets uniform.
“I’ve at all times said he’s top two — not two — so far as receivers within the league, so to have him a part of my team, could be an enormous honor again obviously,” Allen Lazard, a former Packers wideout and current Jet, recently told The Post’s Steve Serby.
“I’d like to play alongside of him and give you the chance to work with him again and just give you the chance to chase after a hoop again.”
With Adams staying put in Las Vegas this season, he and his Raiders teammates want to construct off of their blowout 30-6 win over the Giants last week.
The sport marked Antonio Pierce’s first as interim head coach following Josh McDaniels’ firing after a 3-5 start.
Kickoff between the Jets (4-4) and Raiders (4-5) gets underway at 8:20 p.m.
