"They aren't the evil empire anymore": Packers insider details why Davante Adams to Cowboys would be a win-win
Davante Adams and the Dallas Cowboys both head to Week 4 on the back of losses.
After the Las Vegas Raiders' loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football, Adams expressed frustration with his team. As such, fans and insiders began speculating about a potential trade.
Taking to Twitter/X, Packers insider Peter Bukowski expressed a desire to see Adams paired up with Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy once again:
"Don’t kill me. The #Packers aren’t winning the Super Bowl this year. Aaron Rodgers has struck fear into Cowboys hearts for a decade. They aren’t the evil empire anymore. Let Tae go win a ring with Mike McCarthy. It would be legitimately really cool."
What would the Cowboys offense look like with Davante Adams?
The Cowboys already have a strong offense, but adding the Raiders' top receiver would elevate the squad to a new level.
As it stands, the Cowboys have CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, and Michael Gallup out wide on most plays. At running back, the team has Tony Pollard as the lead back.
Adding Adams would set up immediate competition for the top starting role at wide receiver. Given the way the Cowboys and Lamb have started the season, Lamb likely would retain the role of primary wide receiver.
Adams would slide into the second role, pushing Cooks and Gallup to the third and fourth-best cornerbacks, respectively.
Brandin Cooks is the same guaranteed 1000-yard pass catcher of yore and could still wipe the floor with most cornerbacks that deep on the depth chart.
Gallup has turned in a 1000-yard season in his career before and could thrive against easier defensive competition.
When did Davante Adams play with Mike McCarthy?
The Cowboys head coach has been separated from Wisconsin for a decent chunk of time at this point. His last year with the team was in 2018. Davante Adams and Mike McCarthy worked together in that season.
Adams was drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL draft by Mike McCarthy's team and the two worked together for about four seasons.
The wide receiver started slowly, earning fewer than 500 yards through the air on passes thrown by Aaron Rodgers.
However, between 2016 and 2018, he earned at least 875 yards and 74 catches in each season.
