Packers Receiving Trade Interest In Cobb

The Packers have received trade interest in wide receiver Randall Cobb, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). However, the Packers are not shopping him and expect him to be a contributor for them this season. 

At one point this offseason, Cobb’s spot on the team was in jeopardy. However, the Packers opted to cut fellow wide receiver Jordy Nelson instead, saving them $10.2MM against the cap. Cobb’s contract, and his $12.72MM cap hit, remain on the books.

Cobb has been a major producer in the Packers’ offense for a long time, but he is coming off of two straight down years. In 2016, he missed three games and finished out with 60 catches, 610 yards, and four touchdowns. Last year, he put up a 66/653/4 line while missing only one game, though many of those contests were played without the services of Aaron Rodgers. His performances over the last two seasons are a world away from his career-high 1,287 receiving yards in 2014, or even his 800+ yard showing in 2015.

This year, Cobb figures to serve as the Packers’ WR2 behind Davante Adams and ahead of Geronimo Allison.

    His poor performance in 2017 was my bad…I had him on one of my fantasy football teams.

    Even if he is coming off 2 down years he has to be better than Kevin White. Bears need to be one of the teams showing an interest in Cobb.

    Pats? For the first four games it’s Hogan and who? They have the picks to offer too. (2 2nds and a 3rd) not that it would take all those picks of course

      Why would GB want low 2nd or 3rd round picks from NE? Until NE plays in a reasonable division their draft picks are minimally valuable.

        How much do you think Randall Cobb is worth? 2014 is gone. My guess is the Packers would jump at a two no matter where it falls.

    He better not. Cobb will only be good on Packers in Fantasy and I wanna draft him late

    Got to trade that talent in order to make room for Aaron Rodgers salary. Pathetic. The Packers will go the way of the Colts and all these other teams that rely too heavily on their QB and thus don’t have the talent to win games.

    If the draft picks are high enough like a 2nd or so, you could make that trade, sign Dez for a one year prove it deal and then you’d have 2 firsts and 2 seconds (plus maybe more) next years draft.

    Not optimal….but I also wouldn’t be 100% against it as the team reloads for one more run over the next 4-5 years of ARods career….
