The Green Bay Packers' offense suffered a big blow in the offseason. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Davante Adams both left and what was already a thin receiving corps only got thinner.

They signed Sammy Watkins and took Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and Samori Toure in the NFL Draft. However, it still feels like something's missing.

Packers Will Be Ok, Says Favre

Even so, Packers legend Brett Favre thinks there's nothing to be worried about. If anything, Aaron Rodgers can make the rookies look good, as he's done throughout his entire career:

“They’ll be OK,” Favre told TMZ Sports. “It’s hard to replace a great player like Davante Adams. It’s hard to replace Aaron Rodgers. You don’t replace those players. You plug someone and hope that the others take up the slack until that person finds their own way. Aaron’s too good. Much like Tom Brady has gone into every season and manage to systematically tear teams apart with whoever. It doesn’t matter. And that will be the case with Aaron.”

Adams Will Regret Leaving

Also, Favre thinks Adams will miss the Packers more than the Packers will miss him, as going from Aaron Rodgers to Derek Carr is a big downgrade at the QB position:

“No disrespect to Davante at all — zero disrespect. I do think that Davante will make Derek Carr better and, in time, they will be a dynamic duo. Now, will it be the duo that Aaron and Davante had? Time will tell," Favre sentenced.

Carr Isn't On Rodgers' Level, Says Favre

Favre claims that Carr may never reach Rodgers' level and went as far as to say that Adams should be thankful to the organization for making him the player he is nowadays:

“I think Derek Carr is a very good quarterback, but he’s not in Aaron’s league yet," Favre added. "He may never be, and that’s no disrespect either, but I do think that Davante owes a great deal of gratitude to Aaron and the Packers drafting him."

Adams Won't Be As Productive In Vegas

The Hall of Famer also predicted Adams' numbers to go south now that he's left Lambeau Field. With Carr instead of Rodgers, he doesn't expect the same All-Pro level of production:

“That’s not to say he’s not a great player because he is a tremendous player and we’ll see that with Las Vegas. But it’s just hard to shift gears, especially from a player as prolific as Aaron Rodgers. I’d be shocked if he had the same year (this year) he’s had. That’s not to say he can’t do it, but I would be shocked.”

Now, it'll be up to Adams to prove him wrong.
