When the Las Vegas Raiders traded for superstar wide receiver Davante Adams, expectations soared. Many figured Adams and former college teammate Derek Carr would become a terror in the AFC. Unfortunately, the reunion between Adams and Carr lasted only one season. The Raiders parted ways with Carr in the off-season, and he now leads the New Orleans Saints.

This surprised Adams, and the star wideout is left at a standstill. He’s on the heels of the most productive season in Raider wide receiver history. But now, he has a new quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo. According to NFL.com, Adams has quite a message for his team.

“I’m going to have to buy into this and try to be as optimistic as possible. It’s not what I expected to happen, but it’s something that’s the reality now,” Adams said via NFL.com. Adams also noted, “We don’t see eye to eye on what we think is best for us right now” to The Ringer, where this interview took place.

In the end, though, Davante Adams had another message for his team: He wants to change the organization and win a Super Bowl.

“My goal is to win a Super Bowl with this team,” Adams said via NFL.com. “And that’s why I didn’t come here to just be cute with Derek. It is to really try and have a shot and change this organization.”
