During the final game of the NFL regular season, Green Bay Packers wide receiver (WR) Davante Adams broke a team record during the 1st quarter.

The record in question is most receiving yards in a single season. The previous record-holder was Jordy Nelson, who had 1,519 receiving yards in 2014.

Adams surpassed that mark today with one minute left in the first quarter, with the game tied 7-7. Breaking the record is just the cherry on top for Adams, who has had yet another remarkable season as the Packers' top WR.

Not only was he named to his fifth Pro Bowl, but he also became the first NFL player to have consecutive seasons with 115 or more catches, 11 or more receiving touchdowns, and 1,350 receiving yards, according to a tweet from the Green Bay Packers official Twitter account.

Adams has certainly climbed through the ranks to become one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. At 29 years old, he will be a free agent at the end of the season. Whether or not he will stay a Packer is undecided, but he's been vocal about how much he loves playing with QB Aaron Rodgers, who he has hailed as the best quarterback to ever play the game.

Rodgers, who may also be a free agent by the end of the season, will have a big impact as to if Adams will return. With Rodgers on the verge of possibly winning his 4th MVP, it would be in the Packers' best interest to sign both of them.
