Randall Cobb is more than just a shifty, underneath wide receiver

Though he excels on short routes, it seems Randall Cobb excels when going deep from the slot after all. A few weeks ago, we examined why Randall Cobb is "just" a slot receiver. We acknowledged that though he is probably the best slot receiver in the game of football, that inherently limits the amount of an impact he can have on the football. With that analysis came the assumption that Cobb struggles to get separation on deep routes and instead forces the Packers' coaching staff to play him in the slot because of those struggles and his ability to excel on shorter patterns. Then Matt Harmon...

Randall Cobb Turns Down Bigger Offers To Stay With Packers

McCarthy sees Cobb continuing to grow

 Photo/ Randall Cobb’s versatility is one of his most important qualities, and one that Mike McCarthy wants to continue to utlilize. PHOENIX – Mike McCarthy isn’t sure if there are any other ways he can creatively use Randall Cobb on offense, but the Green Bay Packers coach is excited to have his most versatile offensive weapon back in his arsenal.Cobb lined up predominantly in the slot last season, when he caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 16 regular-season games. Of those, 75 catches for 1,087 yards and all 12 TDs came when he lined up in the slot, according to...

While free agency remains open, Packers likely to stand pat

 Photo/ Although the Packers haven’t signed any free agents other than their own, there’s still time for them to do so. PHOENIX – Although it’s unlikely that Ted Thompson will add any of the free agents that remain on the open market now that the dust has settled – you know, given his track record – the Green Bay Packers general manager isn’t ready to rule out the possibility of a signing or two just yet.So far in free agency, the Packers have kept wide receiver Randall Cobb, right tackle Bryan Bulaga and backup quarterback Scott Tolzien while losing cornerbacks Davon House...

Packers in the hunt for Wes Welker, per report

The team is reportedly in the receiver market. When the Green Bay Packers re-signed Randall Cobb to a long-term deal, many assumed that their attempts to augment the receiving corps had concluded. However, the team may still be looking for ways to improve the group. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Green Bay has its eye on free agent wideout Wes Welker. Welker seems an odd target for the Packers. He turns 34 in May, has a history of injury and is coming off his worst season since his rookie year. Meanwhile, the team is currently stocked at wide receiver, with Jordy Nelson, Cobb,...

Randall Cobb Contract: Packers still have $26.7M in salary cap space

The structure of Randall Cobb's new deal keeps his cap hit low in 2015 and leaves the Packers with over $26 million remaining under this year's cap. The Packers' four-year, $40 million contract with wide receiver Randall Cobb was made official on Monday afternoon, and now that we're into Tuesday, we have the first reports regarding the structure of the deal. It appears that Cobb's contract is structured much like the Packers' other deals; the cap hit in the first year of the contract is relatively low, thanks to a fairly large signing bonus and low base salary. In the second year, the...

Cobb returns in search of 'rings'

Randall Cobb officially signs new contract with Packers, says he's back "to win championships"

It's official. Number 18 is back, and he wants rings. On Monday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers finally confirmed what had been reported back on Saturday night - Randall Cobb is indeed back as a member of the Green and Gold, having signed a contract to play for the Packers for the next few years. Cobb played a part in the announcement as well, sitting down with Packers.com's Mike Spofford to discuss his new contract, the team's 2014 season, and his plans and goals for the future. There's no question that Cobb is happy to be rejoining the team that drafted him in 2011, saying repeatedly...

Report: Rodney Hudson to sign huge free agent deal with Raiders

The top free agent center on the market is headed to Oakland. Rodney Hudson will be signing with deal with the Raiders according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. His reported 5-year, $44.5 million deal makes him the highest paid center in the NFL. That's an average of $9 million a year which is extremely high for a center, but the Raiders had to bid high to make sure they got their man. After all, they had lost out on several other top free agent targets including Randall Cobb (re-signed in Green Bay) and Ndamukong Suh (signed monster deal in Miami). Hudson was among the top five free...

Dolphins attempted to sign Randall Cobb

The Miami Dolphins made a play for wide receiver Randall Cobb, according to a report. The Miami Dolphins appear to have come to an agreement to sign free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh when the NFL free agent signing period opens tomorrow. That was not the only name they chased this offseason, according to a report. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Dave Hyde reports that the team was "in the mix" for wide receiver Randall Cobb. The deal would have paid Cobb "'significantly more' than the four-year, $40 million" contract Cobb signed to stay with the Green Bay Packers. Hyde explains the...

With Cobb Back, the Packers' focus turns to Bryan Bulaga

What The Dallas Cowboys Should And Should Not Do In Free Agency

Free agency is a mere two days and a few hours away, and what an exciting time it can be. I'm here to not only temper expectation but also give my opinion on what should be a successful outing for the Cowboys. We've only just begun, as some would say. First we had all the names being released last week. Staples in their organizations such as Vince Wilfork and Trent Cole have been set free. Others such as Ndamukong Suh and Devin McCourty will go to the highest bidders. We even have players being generous to remain with their own organizations, as did with Randall Cobb's 4 year, $40 million...
