Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is unlikely to re-sign with the team, barring something unexpected. 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.
Huddle Up: Cobb might find more money in free agency, but the teams reportedly ready to throw that money at him--Jacksonville and Oakland--offer a decided step down in quarterback from the Packers.

The Green Bay Packers are working to re-sign impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb, according to a pair of league sources. And while the two sides reportedly aren't close to any kind of deal, Cobb is viewed as a core player that the team definitely wants to keep.
Huddle Up: While one national story iterated that the Packers weren't focusing on re-signing Cobb, most reports out of Wisconsin still say that the team's priorities are retaining free-agents RT Bryan Bulaga and Cobb -- and not necessarily in that order. Cobb is coming off a career year with 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 TDs and is rumored to be seeking a multi-year deal averaging $9-10 million per season, and if the Pack want to go the franchise-tag route, they have until 4 p.m. ET Monday.

Free-agent WR Randall Cobb (Packers) may be targeted by the Oakland Raiders if he reaches free agency.
Huddle Up: The Raiders have taken castoff Green Bay pass-catchers before; James Jones is currently on their roster. Cobb would certainly provide Derek Carr with a multi-faceted weapon and also give Oakland more flexibility with the fourth overall pick as opposed to using it on Amari Cooper or Kevin White. Or heck, why not stock up at receiver and really give Carr an arsenal?

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said prior to the start of the 2014 season that he would prove that he deserved a contract extension, and he finished the season with career highs in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Cobb and RT Bryan Baluga are the Pack's top two free-agent priorities, but it'll be that much tougher to re-sign the WR if he reaches the open market with teams such as the wideout-needy Raiders and Jets rumored to be ready to pounce.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb 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.'
Huddle Up: Even though the Pack already has doled out recent big WR bucks in re-signing Jordy Nelson last year, look for the team to find a way to retain Cobb, who is coming off a career season with 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 TDs.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb spent three hours in a Seattle hospital Saturday, Jan. 17, due to an undisclosed ailment. Doctors initially thought he had appendicitis but this turned out not to be the case.
Huddle Up: It didn't seem to set back Cobb at all Sunday as he was targeted a game-high 10 times and finished with a team-most seven receptions for 62 yards and Aaron Rodgers' lone passing score -- a 13-yard catch on the final play of the first quarter.
