Davante Adams was among the first to express his support for Derek Carr when he was benched by the Las Vegas Raiders on Wednesday.
The great wide receiver sent an emotional Instagram tribute for his old pal. "This guy surrendered his whole fortune.
The reason I am a Raider is... One of the most disciplined and kind individuals I know. Got my buddies back by whatever means, and if you can't appreciate that, you!!! Love u bruh, "Adams authored.
The NFL community reacted to this statement on Twitter. "A true buddy would not want to be on a team that mistreated his quarterback.
I hope Adams really has Carrs back and joins whatever team he ultimately joins "a fan wrote in. "Raiders are on the verge of losing both of them," another individual remarked.
The Raiders' decision to sit Carr for the remaining two games of the season hints to a possible separation after the conclusion of the current regular season.
Adams signed a five-year, $140 million deal with the Raiders over the summer, in large part because of his relationship with Carr from their time at Fresno State.
It is uncertain how Adams' benching will affect his future with the franchise.
