Three-time All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams is remaining with the Las Vegas Raiders, new general manager Tom Telesco told reporters on Tuesday at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

“He’s a Raider,” Telesco said.

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

Adams, however, told ESPN earlier this month that it was “definitely exciting” to work 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.

During Telesco’s tenure as GM, the Chargers made the playoffs just three times in 11 seasons and never got past the divisional round, despite working with quarterbacks Philip Rivers and Justin Herbert. The Chargers went 84-92 during his tenure.
