Packers WR Davante Adams named first-team All-Pro in 2021
Davante Adams,

Green Bay Packers’ receiver, was named a first team All-Pro by the Associated Press for the 2021 NFL Season.

Adams broke team records for receiving yards and catches, and was awarded all 50 votes to be first-team All Pro. Los Angeles Rams receiver Cooper Kupp and San Francisco 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel were the other two receivers selected to the first team in 2021.

This is Adams’ second career first-team selection. He received 49 of a possible 50 votes and was a first-team pick last season when he caught an NFL-high 18 touchdown passes in 14 games.

Over 16 games in 2021, Adams caught 123 passes for 1,553 yards and 11 touchdowns. Adams finished second in the NFL for catches, third in receiving yard, and tied for fifth in touchdowns and receiving first downs.

Despite being targeted 169 multiple times, Adams only dropped four passes and caught 72.8 per cent of his targets. He averaged 9.2 yards per target. He hauled in 19 passes of at least 20 yards and four of 40 or more.

Adams played eight games with 100 receiving yards or more, including a career high 206 yard in Week 5. His 206 receiving yardage against the Bengals was the second-highest for a player in the 2021season. He also had an NFL-high five games with at least 10 catches and over 100 receiving yards.

Adams is the third Packers receiver to be selected for multiple All-Pro teams, joining Sterling Sharpe (three), and Don Huston (seven). He is also the first Packers receiver to be selected as a first-team All Pro in consecutive seasons since Sharpe in 1992.

The Packers had three All-Pros on the first team in 2021.
