Randall Cobb, Bryan Bulaga set for market after team passes on tags

The Green Bay Packers have all the salary cap money in the world to use toward free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb and offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga, but it doesn’t mean they are going to spend it on someone else’s terms.

Randall Cobb, Jeremy Maclin take one more step to free agency

It's not known yet if the Kansas City Chiefs will be players in free agency. But if they do clear up some salary cap space and decide to make a run at someone in free agency, there could be a few quality receivers available. Neither Jeremy Maclin nor Randall Cobb were franchise tagged by the Eagles or Packers, respectively, on Monday afternoon. The Chiefs brass has connections to each as you know; Andy Reid with Maclin while with the Philadelphia Eagles and GM John Dorsey's time in Green Bay with Cobb and the Packers. Judging by the reports out of Philadelphia, it seems like there's a...

Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for March 2nd, 2015

We're just eight days away from the official start of free agency and five days out from the beginning of the legal tampering period. Isn't the lead-up to free agency a blast? Amid the conflicting reports on Randall Cobb's status, one thing is certain: he will be the highest-priced free agent Packer this season, but when and where he signs is still very much in question. We at APC believe that the Packers' best shot to retain him is to sign him to a new contract prior to the official start of free agency on March 10th. However, doing so runs the risk of paying him more than market value, a...

Randall Cobb rumors: Packers to let WR test NFL free agency

A player a lot of people want the Jaguars to sign appears to actually be hitting the open market. The Green Bay Packers appear prepared to let wide receiver Randall Cobb test the free agent market, according to a report by CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora. Rather than tagging Cobb or trying to sign him to an extension, the team is believed to be more focused on re-signing players like Bryan Bulaga and Letroy Guion. Cobb has been the apple of a lot of Jaguars' fans eyes, along with players like Bulaga and tight end Julius Thomas. Cobb reportedly is looking for a deal that will pay upwards of $9...

Packers to let Randall Cobb test market, focused on signing Bryan Bulaga and Letroy Guion, per report

Green Bay could retain one of its biggest free agents and an important defensive contributor. The Green Bay Packers have plenty of cap space after releasing A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones. That doesn't mean GM Ted Thompson is about to deviate from his frugal, long-term approach to team building, however. According to Jason La Canfora, the Packers believe Randall Cobb's market is "likely to get out of hand" and have focused their efforts on retaining other key free agents. Reports surfaced last week that Cobb and his camp desire a deal worth an average of $9 million per year. While less annually...

Free agent receivers for the Chiefs not named Jeremy Maclin or Randall Cobb

When we mention free agent wide receivers and the Kansas City Chiefs, folks are immediately going to bring up Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb and Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin. We've talked plenty about those players but today I want to look at a few of the top free agent receivers not named Cobb or Maclin. Pro Football Focus released their list of top 10 free agent wide receivers. The list starts with Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, who both will likely re-sign with their teams or get franchised. They're not going anywhere. Then there's Cobb...

Packers Free Agent Rumors: Randall Cobb targeted by Raiders

A former Thompson disciple appears poised to target yet another former Packers receiver. Reggie McKenzie just can't seem to get enough former Packers on his team. The Packers' former director of player personnel has spent the last three years as the Oakland Raiders' general manager, and has signed numerous former Packers - Charles Woodson, James Jones, and C.J. Wilson come to mind. He is apparently targeting yet another: wideout Randall Cobb. No shock, but hear expectation around NFL is #Raiders will make run at Cobb. But #Packers not expected to hit him hit FA. — Bill Williamson...

Randall Cobb: Potential Jets

Randall Cobb gained 1,324 yards from scrimmage this season. He is 24 years old. He is going to be an unrestricted free agent. That is quite a combination. Would the 2011 second round pick from Kentucky be a good fit in New York? Cobb is not a traditional outside receiver. He's only 5'10" and 192 pounds. He's a slot guy and a very productive one at that. He caught 75 balls for 1,067 yards, and 12 touchdowns from the slot alone in 2014. He was injured for much of 2013, but in 2012 he caught 63 passes for 835 yards, and 6 touchdowns. One could make a case that Cobb has become the most...

Packer wide receiver Randall Cobb wants $9 million a year

Wide receiver Randall Cobb has apparently set the price tag he hopes to get in a new contract either from the Green Bay Packers or another team in free agency. He wants $9 million a year according to ESPN, which would come close to the four year $39 million deal the Packers gave their top receiver, Jordy Nelson, last summer. Cobb is valuable because he also can return kicks and he won’t turn 25 until Aug. 22. Last year, he had his best season with 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns. read more

Ten Thoughts on the NFL: Chicago Bears and beyond

There is no off season for NFL fans! 1) Green Bay Packers' free agent receiver Randall Cobb is reportedly looking to get close to Jordy Nelson type money. Nelson is making almost $10 million per season and Cobb is seeking about $9 million per year. Today is the first day teams can use the franchise tag, but the Packers aren't expected to tag Cobb. If they can't work something out, the 24 year old Cobb will be able to take his services to the highest bidder, and seeing as how he just had a career year (91 receptions, 1,287 yards, 12 TDs) there will be plenty of bidders. 2) The NFL team...
