ESPN's Andrew Brandt reports WR Randall Cobb turned down better deals elsewhere to remain with the Packers.
"I know for a fact he left a lot of money on the table," Brandt said. "And I knew it was going to be hard to pry him away. It's a system he liked; he knows he's playing with the best quarterback." Cobb was reportedly seeking $11 million per season, but settled for $10M annually. His new contract keeps him in Green Bay through his age-29 season. Cobb is a top-15 fantasy receiver for 2015.

Packers re-signed WR Randall Cobb to a four-year, $40 million contract.

A four-year deal always made the most sense for both the Packers and Cobb. Green Bay locks him up for his age 25-28 prime, and Cobb can hit free agency at 29 years old, shooting for another big contract. Cobb's return is a significant blow to the re-draft and Dynasty outlook of Davante Adams, who will remain the Packers' No. 3 receiver for the foreseeable future. Coming off a breakout year where he set career bests in catches (91), yards (1,287), and touchdowns (12), Cobb will again be worth drafting as a borderline WR1 in 2015 fantasy leagues.

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans are making a run at free agents Randall Cobb and Jeremy Maclin.

With Andre Johnson expected to be released, the Texans are in the market for a receiver opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Cobb is seeking $11 million annually as the top wideout available, while Maclin could require a deal in excess of $8M per season. The Texans have also been linked to free agent Torrey Smith.

Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson reports free agent WR Randall Cobb would have to take $1-2 million less per year to re-sign with the Packers.

Green Bay is reportedly willing to pay Cobb $9 million a year, but Cobb is expected to receive offers of up to $11 million a season from cap stacked teams like the Jaguars and Raiders. It is not inconceivable Cobb would take a hometown discount to continue playing with the best quarterback in the game, but $2 million is quite a bit more than a discount. Cobb will likely be playing somewhere else in 2015.

U-T San Diego's Michael Gehlken reports the Chargers are interested in free agent WR Randall Cobb.

This link makes sense. Cobb would be a big upgrade over the departing Eddie Royal in the slot and a great fit in the Chargers' quick-hitting offense. The competition for Cobb will be tough, however, and teams with more cap space than the Chargers could offer Cobb the $11 million per season he is seeking. Cobb is Rotoworld's No. 1 available wide receiver.

ESPN's Adam Schefter believes the Raiders will "prioritize" Randall Cobb and Julius Thomas over Ndamukong Suh in free agency.

Schefter shared his thoughts in a Thursday radio hit, one that came before Mike Silver's report that the Raiders are planning to host Suh. Of the three, Suh would make by far the biggest impact for the woebegone Raiders, but perhaps they don't believe they're realistic players for his services.

A source tells Yahoo the Packers "balked" at paying free agent Randall Cobb $10M per year.

The Packers are reportedly willing to pay Cobb $8-9 million annually, but aren't going to go past that number. So unless Cobb surprisingly chooses to give a massive hometown discount, Aaron Rodgers will be left with Davante Adams and Jeff Janis behind Jordy Nelson. The Raiders and Jaguars, armed with an ocean of cap space and a need to spend it to meet league minimums, figure to offer something around the $11M per season Cobb is seeking.
Mar 5 - 10:57 AM

The Packers reportedly informed free agent Randall Cobb's camp that they are willing to sign him to a five-year deal worth $8-9 million annually.

Agent Jimmy Sexton "basically has told the team he's confident more lucrative offers await." Venerable Packers beat writer Bob McGinn confirms the Jaguars are "expected to be all over Cobb," while the Raiders are "also ready to enter the Cobb sweepstakes." Concludes McGinn, "barring the unexpected ... it appears as if Cobb will be playing elsewhere next season."
Mar 4 - 10:22 AM

A league source told Packer Report's Bill Huber the Raiders are considering offering free agent Randall Cobb "a blockbuster deal."

The same source said Jacksonville is "prepared to make a run" at Cobb. The source claims Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie -- an ex-Packers personnel man -- is willing to offer Cobb $11 million annually, a price Green Bay GM Ted Thompson almost certainly wouldn't match. Cobb would replace James Jones as the Raiders' slot receiver. His fantasy outlook would take a huge blow in Oakland.

The Florida Times Union believes free agent Randall Cobb "should" be on the Jaguars' wish list.

Beat writer Ryan O'Halloran has been beating the drum for the Jags to add a premier playmaker, and is calling for Julius Thomas, Cobb, or even both. Jacksonville has a ton of cap room and seems prepared to blow some of its wad early in free agency. It's going to do everything it can to surround Blake Bortles with talent. O'Halloran suggests ponying up a five-year, $56 million deal for Cobb. He's reportedly seeking $9-12 million per year.
Mar 4 - 8:47 AM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports free agent Randall Cobb could be seeking $12 million annually.

At least that was the scuttlebutt at the Combine. Cobb's original asking price was reportedly $9 million. The Packers could have secured Cobb for $12.823 million by giving him the franchise tag, but instead they'll let him test the market. $12 million isn't a realistic number for a player who, according to Pro Football Focus, played 87.3 percent of his snaps in the slot last season.
Mar 2 - 5:02 PM

The Packers have elected not to use the franchise tag on free agent Randall Cobb.

Cobb becomes the top wideout available after Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas were tagged on Monday. Not yet 25 years old, Cobb has had injury issues in the past, but beasted to a 91/1,287/12 line last season. The Pack will likely work to re-sign Cobb right up until the start of free agency, but there's little reason for Cobb not to let the market set his price.
Mar 2 - 4:05 PM

ESPN Wisconsin's Jason Wilde expects contract talks between the Packers and free agent Randall Cobb to "go down to the final hours" before the market opens on March 10.

Two sources tell Wilde the Packers haven't given up on re-signing Cobb, but multiple reports have come out recently suggesting the sides may be headed for a split. The Packers have sophomores Davante Adams and Jeff Janis primed for bigger roles, and could get a third-round compensatory pick in 2016 if Cobb lands a big deal elsewhere. We strongly suspect he would at age 24.
Mar 1 - 1:31 PM

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports "no deal is imminent" between the Packers and free agent Randall Cobb.

Re-signing Cobb and RT Bryan Bulaga are the Packers' top priorities, but there haven't been any developments in contract talks. Cobb is reportedly seeking $9 million annually. The Packers have $33.2M in salary-cap space to re-sign Cobb, but could move forward with Davante Adams and Jeff Janis behind Jordy Nelson.

The Raiders are ready to make a run at free agent Randall Cobb.

No team is more desperate for receiving talent than Oakland. It's been a full decade since their last 1,000-yard receiver (Randy Moss in 2005). Oakland is said to be targeting Alabama receiver Amari Cooper in the draft, but that won't be enough to turn around one of the league's worst passing offenses. Cobb is still fully expected to re-sign with Green Bay, but don't be surprised if Oakland tempts him with a competitive offer.
