Impending free agent receiver
Green Bay did not slap the franchise tag on Cobb, and the 24-year-old star believes he can do better than the
Other teams can start negotiating with Cobb at 3 p.m. Saturday. The Jaguars, who have $69.3 million in cap room, "are expected to be all over Cobb" as they need a dynamic threat from the slot to help quarterback Blake Bortles, the paper said.
Oakland has $56.6 million in cap room and also is preparing to bid for Cobb, the paper said, adding: "Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie helped draft Cobb for Green Bay in the second round four years ago and wants to reunite him with steady James Jones."
Cobb set career highs last year with 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns.
While he did not receive the designation, there are reports that Cobb and the Packers are working on a long-term deal to remain in Green Bay and he is looking to get $9 million per year.
Cobb posted a career season in 2014, catching 91 balls for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns, all career highs.
The Raiders are looking to build a solid receiving group around second-year quarterback David Carr and Cobb would have the makings of being an immediate No. 1 receiver. It would also mark the second year in a row the Raiders go after a
In 2014, Cobb posted career-bests with 91 catches, 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Williams' agent Rodney Williams is trying to get the Packers to see what a stalwart Williams has been since signing with Green Bay in 2007.
"Everybody looks at that number 32, and it's based strictly on whether you're going to start breaking down and missing games," Rodney Williams said at the NFL combine. "You're talking about a guy who's played in 140 out of 141 games, so if there's any player on that team that's going to show up every day, it's Tramon Williams, so I think that's going to be the exception to that age number that some people are putting out."
Williams totaled 71 tackles in 2014 and added three interceptions, tied for a team high.
Thompson passed up on the chance to re-sign wideouts Greg Jennings and James Jones in previous offseasons, and could avoid a similar scenario this time around.
"I can't speak to those other fellas, but Randall Cobb is one of the guys we'd like to have on our team, yeah," Thompson said at the NFL scouting combine. "Just like several others."
The Packers have until March 2 to decide whether to use the franchise tag on Cobb, keeping him for a year at a little over $12 million. He's reportedly seeking $9 million a year, similar to the four-year, $39 million contract fellow WR Jordy Nelson signed with the team last year.
Cobb registered a career-high 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014.
