Adams is seeking to become the league's highest-paid wideout, but he and the Packers have differing definitions on the meaning of that term, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
EDGE Analysis
Adams is set to become a free agent after this season, and he expressed publicly Wednesday that he is looking for an average annual salary that makes him the top-paid pass catcher in the league. That title is currently held by Arizona's DeAndre Hopkins, who, after joining the Cardinals, agreed to a two-year extension that averages $27.25 million per season. Adams is presumably looking to top that number, but the Packers believe the average salary of Hopkins' entire contract -- which comes out a few million dollars cheaper -- is a more appropriate number. Adams averaged 91.6 receptions, 1,127.8 yards and 11.6 touchdowns over the last five seasons, so he has the stats on his side. However, the Packers do have a bit of leverage, as they will have the franchise tag available.

Following the expected restructure of Aaron Rodgers' contract, Adams has indicated he's willing to discuss a new contract with the Packers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Adams and the Packers broke off negotiations for an extension less than a week ago after things grew stale, but the reported new Rodgers deal seems to have spurred the star wideout's willingness to get things back on track. Adams figures to snare a new deal among the top-paid wideouts in the league when he signs on the dotted line as he enters the last season of a four-year, $58.96 million contract with the Packers that he signed in late 2017.

Adams and the Packers have broken off negotiations for a contract extension, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
The two sides have been working on a potential deal for months, but talks have stalled and there's apparently no plan to resume negotiations. Adams is entering the fourth and final year of the four-year, $58 million extension he signed in 2017, and his future with the Packers beyond 2020 is now in doubt. The status of QB Aaron Rodgers remains uncertain with training camp set to begin next week. and it now appears Green Bay will open the season with question marks surrounding the team's two best players.

Adams and the Packers are in the early stages of discussing a contract extension, Paulina Dedaj of FOX News reports.
EDGE Analysis
Adams is entering the fourth and final season of a four-year, $58 million extension, with his $12.25 million base salary an obvious bargain for the Packers after the wideout enjoyed a career-best campaign in 2020. While the uncertainty surrounding QB Aaron Rodgers is far from ideal, Adams says it won't impact his preparation for the upcoming season, nor will it dissuade him from discussing a new contract with the Packers. He'd be an obvious candidate for the franchise tag next offseason if the two sides aren't able to work out a long-term deal.

Adams recorded nine receptions on 15 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' 31-26 loss to the Buccaneers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
EDGE Analysis
As has become the norm, Adams saw a multitude of targets -- accounting for 31 percent of Aaron Rodgers' pass attempts. Adams turned that into a decent statistical performance, but he was held to 15 yards or fewer on all of his receptions. Despite not being able to work deep, he did haul in a two-yard touchdown grab in the midst of a dramatic comeback attempt. Adams will head into the final year of his contract in 2021 and should return to form as a top receiver remaining paired with Rodgers.

Adams recorded nine receptions on 10 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' divisional-round win over the Rams.
EDGE Analysis
Adams delivered in a much anticipated matchup with cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Despite the tough draw, Adams was targeted 10 times, and he's now commanded double-digit targets in five of his last six contests. He beat Ramsey early in the second quarter for a one-yard reception to notch the Packers' first touchdown of the game. Adams also chipped in bigger gains, the' longest of which went for 21-yards and helped set up a field goal just before halftime. While the the matchup may not gain as much hype, Adams will draw another tough defense as the Packers will take on either the Saints or Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game.

Adams caught all six of his targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-16 win over the Bears.
EDGE Analysis
Adams didn't have a big game by his lofty standards, but he still managed to find the end zone. In doing so, he tied the Packers' franchise record with 18 touchdown receptions this season, and he also set a new team-best mark with 115 total catches. Remarkably, those totals came despite Adams missing two games due to injury. Arguably the NFL's best wide receiver, Adams will now have a week off before Green Bay hosts a divisional-round playoff game.

Adams racked up 11 receptions (12 targets) for 142 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 40-14 rout of the Titans.
EDGE Analysis
Sleet, snow and the Titans' secondary could not stop Adams from posting yet another monster fantasy performance on the national stage. The 28-year-old didn't even have his stats boosted by a particular big play, as his game high of a 32-yard reception showed that he and Aaron Rodgers consistently picked up big chunks of yardage throughout the cold winter night. This was Adams' seventh game with at least 100 yards and a touchdown this season, and he accomplished that in just 13 contests as a result of missing two games to injury. If it wasn't for Alvin Kamara's ridiculous six-touchdown game, Adams would likely be named NFC Player of the Week. The good news for those hoping to get another chance to use the star wideout this regular season is that the Seahawks were also victors in Week 16, which gives the Packers something to play for (No. 1 seed and a bye) next week against the Bears.

Adams logged seven receptions on 10 targets for 42 yards in Week 15 against the Panthers.
EDGE Analysis
Adams got off to a hot start, recording 29 yards by the end of the Packers' second possession. However, the team jumped ahead 21-3, which limited Aaron Rodgers to only 10 second-half pass attempts and in turn suppressed Adams' ability to produce. Adams' stat line was further limited by his inability to find the end zone -- the first time he has failed to score since Week 6 -- and the fact that he was limited to working in short areas of the field. More positively, he should be in a bounceback spot in Week 16 against the Titans.

Adams corralled seven of 10 targets for 115 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-24 win against the Lions.
EDGE Analysis
Adams helped Green Bay pose a response to Detroit's opening-drive TD, demonstrating his elite skill set during a 56-yard jaunt. Not only did the three-time Pro Bowler outmaneuver cornerback Amani Oruwariye for the contested catch, but he also weaved past a trio of Lions defenders en route to his 14th score of the season. Adams currently holds an eight-game scoring streak, with an incredible 12 TDs since Week 7. Had he not missed two games in September and October because of a hamstring injury, Adams may be more seriously contending with Randy Moss' single-season receiving TD record of 23 (2007). With Aaron Rodgers under center, Adams is as matchup-proof as they come heading into a Week 15 Saturday night showdown against the Panthers.
