The top NFL soap opera of the offseason continues in Green Bay.

Aaron Rodgers did not show up to the team’s offseason workouts, but Davante Adams was there and he went on record to show his support for his quarterback.

"I've got his back through everything so he knows that, at the end of the day, if there's ever a wonder if he's lost a teammate or something because of all that's come out, he knows where I stand," Adams told the media. "I'll stand on the f---ing mountain and scream on the mountaintop that I've got his back."

While Adams has made it clear that he has no plans to holdout this season or to miss any time, it’s important to note that his four-year, $58 million contract is up at the end of the 2021 season.

If the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers can’t figure out their issues, don’t be shocked if Adams explores other options during his free agency. Packers fans will have to hope that if Rodgers returns to the team, the front office's relationship with Adams will begin to heal as well.

The Packers also could put the franchise tag on Adams, but that could cause even more frustration with the organization. Adams is nearing 30, and he likely wants to cash in on another long-term deal.

If the relationship doesn't get any better and the Packers decide not to use the tag, we could see the All-Pro wide receiver in a different uniform come 2022.

It’s still unknown how this saga will end, but rumors have been circulating since April's NFL Draft that Rodgers could be out the door sooner rather than later, and the Denver Broncos have emerged as the most likely landing spot.

The Packers are still listed on WynnBET at +1800 to win Super Bowl 56, but expect those odds to drop if Rodgers is in fact traded before the season.
