Las Vegas Raiders All-Pro Wide Receiver Davante Adams has entered into an agreement with MGM Resorts International to become the company’s first active National Football League (NFL) Athlete Brand Ambassador.
He will be featured in MGM Resorts marketing campaigns and digital content initiatives, and will participate in select MGM Rewards special events at MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas and regional properties.
“Davante is a class act both on and off the field and has built a strong fan base,” said MGM Resorts International Senior Vice President of Sports and Sponsorships Lance Evans. “We are excited to welcome one of the NFL’s elite players to the family and look forward to his future engagements with our MGM Rewards members.”
Adams arrived in Las Vegas this summer after spending eight seasons with the Green Bay Packers. During that period, he broke the Packers’ franchise record for receiving yards in a single season with more than 1,500 yards in 2021, while also becoming the only Packers player to have two games in a single post-season with at least 100 receiving yards and at least 125 receiving yards in three post-season games in a career.
Moreover, Adams led the NFL in receiving touchdowns in 2020 and has consistently been in the League’s Top 100 players since 2018, as well as earning five Pro Bowl selections.
Adams commented: “From day one, the MGM Resorts team welcomed my family and me to Las Vegas with open arms. It’s truly an honour to be the first active NFL athlete to partner with this world-class company and to continue building a legacy in this new city I am privileged to call home.”
