Packers WR Davante Adams is likely set to receive the franchise tag this upcoming offseason.
For as great as Adams has been on the field, the Packers have been reluctant to give Adams a huge contract and likely make him the highest-paid wide receiver in football. As Rapoport notes, the Packers and Adams have not had contract talks since July and he is set to be a free agent in March. The franchise tag would at least give Green Bay more time to extend Adams. The tag is projected to be around $20 million for wide receivers.
