Two more catches. That's all it's going to take for Davante Adams to surpass Sterling Sharpe's team record of 112 receptions in a single season.
"That would be sweet," said Adams. "We'll see exactly how it goes, but obviously, I got might sights set on winning a football game. If we can accomplish that in the meantime, that would be great."
It didn't always come this easy for Adams. This is his first season corralling 100 receptions. It's been nearly a year since Adams received a four-year $58 million extension. A move that seemed to bring undeserved criticism.
"It's good to be able to shut up, I'll be nicer. Silence the critics," said Adams. They all say 'Maybe, he's overpaid, and this and that' going into it because I haven't had a 1,000 yard season, but it's good to show them what I've been working on. I look forward to doing the same thing next year."
The reception mark isn't the only record in sight. Adams needs 133 yards to break Jordy Nelson's single season reception record of 1,519 yards. If he can tack two touchdowns on to those numbers, the 26-year-old would be the first Packers receiver to ever reach 100 catches, 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns in a single season.
"The best thing about things like this is that I feel like they come when you don't really expect it," said Adams. "Not that I didn't expect to put up numbers, but I didn't go into it saying 'I want to beat Jordy's record.' I went into saying 'I'm gonna try to beat my stuff from the previous years. Be better than I was the first time we played the Lions.' That's my mentality. The good thing about the football gods is they reward you when you have your head on straight, and you're worried about the right things."
Adams added that it hasn't been about the money. That's why you're seeing him only get better under his new contract. Fans can only wait to see what tricks Adams' will pull out of the bag come 2019.
