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.

The Packers met with free agent FB John Kuhn's player rep at the Combine.

The sides reportedly have mutual interest in getting a deal done. Kuhn made his second Pro Bowl last year, but had a limited role on offense. The Packers should be able to bring him back on a team-friendly contract.

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 Packers are expected to re-sign free agent NT B.J. Raji.

Raji missed the entire season due to biceps surgery, but the Packers want to keep him on another one-year deal. It could be a sign that Green Bay will let Letroy Guion test the open market. Raji is expected to be ready for training camp.

The Packers aren't expected to ask LB Julius Peppers to take a pay cut.

He's due back at his full $9.5 million salary, a figure that includes an $8.5 million base, a $500,000 workout bonus and another $500,000 in per game roster bonuses. Add in the rest of his prorated signing bonus and Peppers will count $12 million against the cap, a steep number for a 35-year-old player who produced 33 hurries on 920 snaps in 2014. At least the Packers were able to clear some cap room by cutting ties with A.J. Hawk.

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.

Free agent NT Letroy Guion's arrest for felony possession of marijuana and a firearm is reportedly close to being resolved.

Officers seized 357 grams of marijuana, more than $190,000 in cash and a 9mm semi-automatic handgun from Guion's truck after a traffic stop on February 3. The handgun was registered in Minnesota. It is unclear what punishment Guion will face, but the settlement will reportedly include the return of Guion's property. Guion is a free agent.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes free agent CB Davon House could command $7 million annually on the open market.

"Because of a dearth of top-end corners and the desperate need for good cover men around the league, the chase for solid corners might get heated," said Packers beat writer Tom Silverstein. "House could wind up receiving $7 million on the open market." The Packers want House back, but would prefer a contract closer to $5 million a season. House is Rotoworld's No. 7 available corner.
Feb 21 - 9:35 AM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Packers have interest in re-signing free agent CB Davon House.

House has been mostly a backup his first four seasons, but is expected to draw starting interest if he reaches the open market. The Packers want to keep House over fellow free agent Tramon Williams, who could command a similar asking price. With Casey Hayward limited to slot corner, Green Bay needs a starter opposite Sam Shields. 26-year-old House is seeking $5 million-plus annually.
Feb 20 - 7:09 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says free agent Scott Tolzien is "definitely an ascending player."

Tolzien is mostly an unknown, having competed in just three games in four NFL seasons. McCarthy gives him a nice endorsement, but Tolzien would probably be lucky to land a backup job this offseason.
Feb 20 - 1:12 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that Aaron Rodgers' "world" is not going to change very much with Tom Clements as playcaller.

Clements has worked with Rodgers since 2006, first as Green Bay's quarterbacks coach and then as offensive coordinator. There's a ton of continuity here even though McCarthy is stepping down as playcaller. Expect a seamless transition for the NFL's reigning MVP and fantasy's No. 1 quarterback.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he thinks second-year WR Jeff Janis will "take a big step" in 2015.

"Obviously, I think we all saw his vertical speed. He’s an extremely physical young man," McCarthy said. "He’s an Olympian in the weight room. He’s got a lot of raw skill, and I look for him to make that jump." A favorite of the metric community, Janis was an extremely athletic but raw receiver when the Packers took him in the seventh round last year. After spending a year honing his craft, Janis will have the opportunity to carve out a role in the Packers' high-powered offense this preseason. He is a strong hold in Dynasty leagues.
Feb 19 - 9:06 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he would "love to have" free agent NT Letroy Guion back.

Guion was arrested early in February for felony possession of a firearm and marijuana. GM Ted Thompson says he is "monitoring" the situation. "(Guion) was an impactful personality and played good football for us," McCarthy said. "I'm hopeful, if we get past this and the monitoring gives us the green light to go forward, I'd love to have Letroy back." The Packers were discussing a long-term deal with Guion before the arrest.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy "definitely" wants to re-sign free agent RT Bryan Bulaga.

McCarthy added "I know Bryan wants to be back." Aaron Rodgers is already on the record as saying re-signing his right tackle should be a priority. Bulaga is Rotoworld's No. 1 free agent tackle.
Feb 19 - 3:29 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy "definitely believes" Julius Peppers will be back in 2015, and "doesn't understand" why people would question so.

Peppers is due $9.5 million between salary and bonuses, but had a successful first season in Green Bay, generating consistent pressure even though he had only seven sacks to show for it. Going by McCarthy's words, a pay cut is out of the question. Perhaps a restructure will be in order.
