The Green Bay Packers will look different at wide receiver this year now that Randall Cobb has moved on to Dallas. It was already the Davante Adams' show, to be fair, but with the new campaign comes the need for the Pack to develop some additional depth out wide to give Aaron Rodgers the best possible chance to lead the charge back toward NFC North supremacy.

And in pursuit of that goal, Adams has introduced a handsome incentive to his fellow receivers: big wads of cash.

Yes, to hear Davante tell it, the Equanimeous St. Browns and Marquez Valdes-Scantlings of the world can earn as much as a couple grand in legal tender in a single game with a sufficiently productive performance. Are there strings attached? Are these payouts capped after a certain point annually, like how your sneering health insurer does it?

Unclear. But for now, let's go ahead and declare Davante Adams a leader and a visionary.

Also unclear: if Jake Kumerow gets a cash bonus just for that hair.
