Aaron Rodgers has been trying to recruit Davante Adams to the New York Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

However, the Raiders are in win-now mode and have no plans to trade their star wideout, Rapoport adds.

Earlier in the 2022-23 campaign, it was reported that the Jets would attempt to trade for Adams in the offseason after their attempts at the trade deadline failed.

Adams and Rodgers were teammates from 2014-2021 on the Green Bay Packers. The 31-year-old wideout made five Pro Bowls and recorded 8,121 yards with Rodgers as his quarterback.

Rodgers, 40, was traded to the Jets before the 2023 season, though his first season in New York was limited to four plays. He suffered a torn Achilles in the Jets' regular-season opener.

Adams is under contract with Las Vegas through 2026. His 2024 cap hit is $25.4 million, and his dead cap hit is $40.4 million, per Spotrac.
