GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Not only might Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams be a package deal, but the timing on whether both will return to the Green Bay Packers could happen almost simultaneously.

If the Packers are going to use the franchise tag on Adams, the All-Pro receiver, they can do so as early as Feb. 22, but no later than March 8. Rodgers has already said he does not want to be part of a rebuild and likely considers anything without Adams to be just that.

And likewise for Adams; he would almost certainly prefer to be able to explore his options if Rodgers doesn't return to the Packers.
