Davante Adams says Raiders are not celebrating Josh McDaniels’ firing, admits readiness for some ‘change’

All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams is in the midst of his second season with the Las Vegas Raiders, but he has not exactly had the smoothest experience so far.

He has previously been vocal about the direction of the Raiders’ offense, and he now has to contend with a major shakeup in the front office and the coaching staff. 

Head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager David Ziegler were both fired earlier this week.

Offensive coordinator Mick Lombardi was also reportedly dismissed, and linebackers coach Antonio Pierce was elevated to the interim coaching position. In light of the recent changes, Adams addressed the notion the Raiders are happy McDaniels will no longer be on the sidelines. 

Adams did thank McDaniels and Ziegler for bringing him to the Raiders. He also reaffirmed his desire to work through the obstacles in Las Vegas.

“As I’ve said countless times, I want to be a Raider and I want to make this work,” Adams said.

At 3-5, the Raiders could still turn their season around, but they will need to start winning soon. Las Vegas hosts the New York Giants Sunday.
