He wanted Green Bay to lock up wide receiver Davante Adams to an extension.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports via Twitter that Adams will sign a multi-year contract extension in Green Bay worth "roughly $14 million per year".

Adams gets $18 million to sign, and $32 million in the first two years, according to Rapoport.

Adams was set to become an unrestricted free agent, but he'll now be under contract until 2021.

Adams tweeted he'd be making a big announcement live on his app.

Adams leads the Packers with 74 receptions for 885 yards (12.0 avg.) and 10 receiving touchdowns (tied for No. 2 in the NFL) this season.

He suffered two concussions from hits that resulted in suspensions for other players. Adams is the only player in the National Football League to have registered 70-plus receptions and 10-plus receiving TDs last season and this season.

The Packers will likely have to make some tough decisions during the off season. With a wide receiver core of Adams, Randall Cobb, and Jordy Nelson, the Packers look to rebound back to contention in 2018.
