Raiders news: How many TD catches will Davante Adams have this season?

The excitement of Davante Adams’ arrival in Las Vegas is off the charts and has been since his successful trade to the Las Vegas Raiders since the Green Bay Packers almost six months ago.

Now, 10 days from the regular season opener, let’s get down to business. How many touchdowns should he expect from Adams, who is widely considered the best wide receiver in the NFL, in 2022? As pointed out in a recent tweet by The Associated Press’ Josh Dubow, the Raiders’ franchise record for single-season touchdown receptions is by Art Powell in 1963.

It’s remarkable Powell’s highly underrated set topping a 14-game season. Adams, of course, will play in a 17-game season, so he has a chance. Adams had 11 touchdown receptions in a 17-game NFL season in 2021. He had a career-high 18 touchdowns in 2020 in 16 games. Former Raider Randy Moss holds the NFL single-season record for touchdown catches with 23 in 2007 when he was with the New England Patriots.

Plus, with Hunter Renfrow and tight end Darren Waller, the Raiders can also challenge their team record for touchdown tandems.

So do you think Powell’s franchise record is in jeopardy this year?
