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.

Free agent NT Letroy Guion has agreed to a deferred prosecution deal resulting in probation.

Guion was arrested on Feb. 3 with 357 grams of marijuana, a registered gun and $190K in cash. If he completes the probation, he'll somehow emerge with a clean record. Still, Guion could be penalized under the personal conduct policy as the deal is essentially a guilty plea.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Seahawks will pursue free agent CB Tramon Williams when the market opens.

Seattle GM John Schneider played a role in signing Williams as a UDFA when Schneider was in Green Bay's front office, and the Seahawks need a replacement for free agent Byron Maxwell. The Packers offered Williams a two-year, $8 million deal but were quickly rejected. Williams reportedly wants "at least" $5 million annually from his next team. Seattle has nearly $25 million in cap room.

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

Updating a previous item, police announced no charges will be filed against free agent DB Jarrett Bush.

Vacaville (CA) police detained Bush at an Italian restaurant/bar on Sunday. He was later released. Previous reports had the special teams dynamo booked on disorderly conduct under the influence charges.
Mar 2 - 11:30 AM

Free agent DB Jarrett Bush was arrested on public intoxication charges Sunday.

Bush was booked in Vacaville (CA), about 60 miles northwest of San Francisco for Disorderly Conduct Under the Influence. The nine-year veteran was the Packers' special teams captain in 2014.

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

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.

Feb 28 - 3:39 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 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.
