Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams wants to be in Las Vegas, and insists he’d be gone by now if he had any desire to be traded.

“If I wanted to be gone, I’d be gone by now. This is where I want to be,” Adams said at his football camp Sunday, according to multiple reports.

New general manager Tom Telesco told reporters at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine there was no plan to part with Adams.

“He’s a Raider,” Telesco said in Indianapolis.

Adams, 31, was linked to a reunion with former Green Bay Packers teammate Aaron Rodgers with the New York Jets.

Adams said in February he was excited instead to be back with new Raiders offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. The two got to know each other when Adams entered the NFL in 2014 and Getsy was the Packers’ offensive quality control coach.

“He’s the type of coach that’s open-minded … he’s going to be open to hearing things from the veteran players that know how this thing works and the best way to do things,” Adams said at the time.

Adams had 103 catches for 1,144 yards and eight touchdowns in 17 games last season.

A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Adams has 872 catches for 10,781 yards and 95 touchdowns in 150 career games (143 starts) with the Packers (2014-21) and Raiders.

Telesco, 51, led the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers’ front office from 2013-23 before the franchise dismissed both him and coach Brandon Staley after a disastrous 63-21 loss in Week 15 — to the rival Raiders.
