Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams is officially the newest member of the “99 Clubs”, a special group featuring all virtual players as the 99 overall in the “Madden NFL” video game franchise.
Teammate Aaron Rodgers welcomed Adams to the club with the video above.
“It’s about time,” Rodgers said. “Finally you deserve me, my man.”
“One-seven is officially in the 99 club,” Adams said.
Adams joins Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald, Carolina Panthers Christian McCaffrey, Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins, Kansas City head quarterback Patrick Mahomes, New England Patriots cornerback Heman Gilmore and Chiefs tight end Travis Kelsey in the “99 Club” .
Adams started the season at 94 overall. He had hit a point in five different times and most recently improved to 98 in Week 13.
In just 13 matches this season, Adams has 109 catches for 1,328 yards and an NFL-high 17 touchdowns. He caught three more touchdown passes against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
The honor included a “99” necklace.
“I think the necklace is the same color as a jacket you’ve been wearing in about a decade. I hope you like that color, because it looks good on you.”
Rodgers joined the “99 Club” during the 2018 season.
“I’ve worked a lot for it, so I’m glad it’s paid and I’m glad it’s getting recognized,” Adams said.
The Packers currently have five players, with a total of 90 or more: Adams (99), David Bakhtiari (96), Rodgers (95), Cornerback Zayer Alexander (93) and Aaron Jones (90). .
