Raiders receiver Davante Adams made it clear Sunday that he doesn't want to play anywhere other than Las Vegas despite speculation about his future earlier in the offseason.

"If I wanted to be gone, I'd be gone by now. ... This is where I want to be," said Adams at his third annual youth football camp, according to Tashan Reed of The Athletic.

It was reported in February that Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Adams' former teammate with the Green Bay Packers, was trying to convince the star pass-catcher to join him in New York. The Jets reportedly also attempted to land Adams at last season's trade deadline.

The Raiders' lack of an established starter under center also fueled rumors about Adams, with free-agent signing Gardner Minshew set to compete with sophomore Aidan O'Connell unless the club drafts a quarterback.

But with a new era underway in Las Vegas led by head coach Antonio Pierce and general manager Tom Telesco, the six-time Pro Bowl receiver is locked in for 2024.

Telesco shot down rumors in February that suggested Adams might be moved.

Adams produced 1,516 yards in his first campaign with the Raiders in 2022 following a trade from Green Bay and had 1,144 yards last season.
