Aaron Rodgers discusses Packers offense without Davante Adams

Aaron Rodgers acknowledged th Green Bay Packers will have to make some changes in their offensive schemes following the departure of Davante Adams. Adams, who earned All-Pro nods in back-to-back years (2020, 2021), was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders this offseason.
For many years, Rodgers and Adams were torching NFL defenses on Sundays. Now, one of the most formidable duos is a thing of the past and Rodgers is set for a life without the player who was his favorite target for many years.
"The offense has to change," Rodgers said, per ESPN. "Last year, when you have a guy who's that talented, it's probably not an exaggeration to say that 80% of the plays in the passing game were designed specifically for 17, so we're obviously gonna do some things a little different."
Rodgers doesn't want to put any kind of pressure on himself
Rodgers, 38, signed a three-year extension with the Packers this offseason.
However, there is no guarantees that Rodgers will indeed play for three more years. Speaking on his future, Rodgers said he wants to keep his options open. "If you say I'm for sure playing two more, three years and then you have a Magical season that ends with a championship and think that that might be the best way to ride off, I don't want to commit to something," Rodgers said.
"You say, I'm only playing one more year and you have a bitter taste in your mouth and still got the drive and the passion to play one or two more years, I just don't want to get pigeonholed into it. So I'm focused on this season.
I'm never gonna drag it out in the offseason. The conversations I've had with Brian have been very honest and direct, and that's not going to change, and we'll sit down after the season, hopefully after a championship and figure out what the next step is."
