The Green Bay Packers and wide receiver Davante Adams have broken off long-term contract extension talks, sources told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The sides reportedly have no current plans to resume negotiations, which began months ago.

Green Bay's offers to date did not involve making Adams the NFL's highest-paid wideout, adds Rapoport.

The 28-year-old has only one year left on a four-year, $58-million extension he signed in December 2017, according to Spotrac. DeAndre Hopkins of the Arizona Cardinals has the highest average annual salary among receivers after signing an extension for two years worth $54.5 million last season.

Adams, a second-round pick in 2014, is coming off his most dominant NFL campaign after racking up 115 receptions for 1,374 yards and a league-high 18 touchdown catches through 14 appearances.

The four-time Pro Bowler said last month he'll report to training camp even without a long-term extension.

The Packers have also had contract issues with reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers, who reportedly declined a two-year offer this offseason that would make him the highest-paid quarterback in football. Rodgers has apparently told teammates he's not willing to return to Green Bay in 2021 under general manager Brian Gutekunst.

Adams has publicly shown support for Rodgers amid the passer's contract issues, saying in May he'd "do some extra thinking" about his future if Rodgers leaves Green Bay.
