News you need to know
General News (Tue Jan 27): said his preference is to re-sign with the team this offseason. "Of course (I want to be back). I think I've made that obvious," Cobb said. "Like I've said before: This is a business. You don't know how it's going to go. What direction it's going to go in. You just have to sit around. I hope that I've put myself in the position where it'll handle itself. But only time can tell."

2014 Week 19 vs DAL (11 / 8 / 116 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Cobb showed off great receiving technique and footwork during the game, specifically on two plays where he had to catch the ball in a way that was difficult. The first was a very low pass down the middle of the field for a first down. On the replay it looked like Cobb might have let the tip of the ball hit the turf, but he got both arms underneath it and was able to scoop it up. After review, the play was upheld. The second catch was near the end of the first half, along the sideline. Cobb was wide open and quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw it right on the sideline so Cobb could get out of bounds and stop the clock without wasting the last time out. Cobb did a tremendous job getting both feet in while securing the ball for the catch, which set up a field goal. Cobb also made a ridiculous catch to end the game. With under two minutes to go at 3rd and 11 and in need of a first down, to keep Dallas from having a chance to win the game, Cobb ran a short out route, but got locked up with a defender. Rodgers delivered the ball anyway, but it was tipped by a pass-rusher and popped into the air. Cobb broke free of the defender and dove for the ball, sopping it up off the turf. Cobb threw the ball in celebration and was called for a delay of game, but the penalty was irrelevant as the new set of downs meant Dallas had lost.
2014 Week 20 vs SEA (10 / 7 / 62 / 1 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Randall Cobb spent part of Saturday in the hospital with some sort of illness, but it didn't seem to slow him down on Sunday. The Green Bay Packers moved him around a lot, putting him inside, outside, even lining him up in the backfield. Still, Cobb and quarterback Aaron Rodgers struggled at times to get on the same page, especially on longer plays. The Seahawks seemed content to let Cobb have the short routes but wouldn't let him get loose long. Cobb disappeared in the fourth quarter as the Packers didn't seem to want to stretch the field and he was blanketed anyway.
Latest NewsPackers | Packers, Randall Cobb to part? (Wed Mar 4, 10:27 PM) - The Green Bay Packers are working to re-sign impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb, and have exclusive negotiating rights until Saturday, March 7, at 3pm, and exclusive signing rights until Tuesday, March 10. The team has been working to hammer out a deal with Cobb for six months. With WRs Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams under contract, the team did not feel the need to use a franchise tag on Cobb like the Dallas Cowboys did with WR Dez Bryant, and the Denver Broncos did with WR Demaryius Thomas. According to sources, the team said they would sign Cobb to a five-year deal averaging $8-9 million per season, and his agent said he feels confident they can get more on the open market. Our View: The two sides have been working on something, but no agreement has been reached. We are likely to see more than a few teams interested in the talented wide receiver.
link to story Chiefs | KC might take run at Randall Cobb (Wed Mar 4, 10:24 PM) - The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to make a run at Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb should he hit the open market. Our View: The Chiefs need as much help as they can get at the WR position. No wide receiver caught a touchdown pass for the Chiefs in 2014, and they need to work diligently to change that. We could see Cobb or Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) be targets for the Chiefs. They also may target a wide receiver in the 2015 NFL draft.
link to story Jaguars | Randall Cobb likely to be courted by Jags (Wed Mar 4, 10:31 AM) - Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is expected to be aggressively pursued by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cobb's agent Jimmy Sexton also represents Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley, and the team has $69.3 million to spend. Our View: The Jaguars have all that money to spend, and they will search high and low to put the best weapons possible around young QB Blake Bortles.
link to story Raiders | Randall Cobb could see Raiders' attention (Wed Mar 4, 10:30 AM) - Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is expected to be aggressively pursued by the Oakland Raiders, according to sources. The Raiders have $56.6 million to spend, and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie helped draft him four years ago. Our View: McKenzie's connection with Cobb might give the Raiders a bit of an advantage over a team like the Jaguars. Cobb is reportedly seeking a deal that pays him around $9 million annually, and that won't be difficult for him to find on the open market.
link to story Packers | Randall Cobb unlikely to rejoin Packers (Wed Mar 4, 10:29 AM) - Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is unlikely to re-sign with the team, barring something unexpected. Our View: When no long-term deal was done, this move became evident. The Packers have attempted to sign Cobb for six months with little room for optimism. The Packers have tried to sign him to a five-year deal worth around $8-$9 million per year.
