Randall Cobb Bought his Mom a House
Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb must be getting ready for that big contract extension he’s going to get this summer.
He bought his mom a house this weekend. Then he let everyone know about it.

Clearly, Cobb is taking care of his money because he isn’t making much of it by NFL standards. By you and I standards, that’s another story…
Cobb made $666,766 in 2013. He’s scheduled to make $812,648 this season, which is the final year of his rookie deal. Cobb has made it known that he’d like to sign a contract extension sooner rather than later.
We’re sure the Packers want to lock him up sooner rather than later as well, but they have a few other issues to deal with. Receiver Jordy Nelson is in the same position — entering the final year of his deal and looking for an extension.
Fortunately for the Packers, they have more than $30 million in cap space available. New deals for both Cobb and Nelson should be a breeze and the Packers will still be able to sign some other guys.
Randall needs to pay for that house, Ted. Let’s get crackin’.
