Davante Adams worked with Getsy for seven seasons with the Green Bay Packers, and he says he is “really excited” to work with him again:
“That was a good feeling knowing a guy that I’ve worked with,” Adams said, via ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez . “I know how he works, I know how his mind works and we’ve had success together. So it’s definitely exciting.”
“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. “So a lot of different things, but just the open-mindedness and, like I said, that innovation to the offense and a good run-pass balance. And that’s what I’m used to, that West Coast style. Gonna be fun, getting to work on a new system, something that’s a little bit more familiar for us. Me and the guys.”
Although there are uncertainties surrounding Getsy’s appointment, key Raiders figures, including Antonio Pierce and Meyers, are confident about the team’s prospects.
