It was all business for Adams when the two were talking about a jersey swap after their Sunday matchup.

“We did talk two days ago, he said he needed a jersey after the game. I told him ‘go get a Cooper Kupp jersey’ since that’s obviously his guy and that’s who he wanted to be with,” Adams told Irvin. 

“That’s my guy, man. I love Odell. I think he would’ve been a great fit here but I wish nothing but the best for him.”
