Cobb got a four-year, $40 million deal with $17 million guaranteed.
Randall Cobb back to Green Bay on a 4-year, $40 million deal, per source.

The deal has a slightly higher average salary than the one Jordy Nelson signed just last offseason. Nelson’s contract averages around $9.8 million.
We didn’t anticipate the Packers would be willing to go this high for their No. 2 receiver. However, it was clear Cobb was likely going to get more on the open market as, arguably, the top overall receiver available.
More on the contract as details become available.
Fuck da Bears!
you guys think is was bullshitting about the SkiDoo hey…told ya.
That’s a lot of $ for a slot receiver. Salary cap purgatory….
Let’s get Bulaga for a 5 year deal now…& Raji for a 2-year deal on the cheap.
Sure, it’s a lot of money for A slot receiver, but R. Cobb is THE slot receiver in the NFL, plus so much more. Yet again, a good deal for both sides orchestrated by TT. Congrats Randall and the GBPO. Looking forward to another 4 years and multiple potential SB berths. Now time to lock up Bulaga, and maybe even Tramon (though doubtful).
Reports say Bulaga is looking for 7 to 8 million a year. Don’t think Ted is gonna stretch that far for him, but I didn’t think he’d go to 10 mil for Cobb, so who knows.
Guaranteed $ will be the key…… If it’s 20… That’s a two year deal.
This came out almost exactly as expected. It makes it easier to figure the outcome when Sexton puts so much shit out to the media. It will be interesting to see if there is a poison pill in year four. This deal may only last for three years. Good for Cobb and the Pack.
It is a lot harder to see what is going on with Bulaga as his agent keeps negotiations private, however the earlier signings today for tackles has probably set Bulaga’s contract value.
Hey Fritz, I called it! The next key is Bulaga
Green Bay has two top receivers locked up. The passing game will get even better with cobb’s ability to get open and jordys awesomeness! Davonte has a full spring and summer to get better. Richard Rodgers might have the best hands on the team. Aaron Rodgers will have his best receiver group.
I’m just kind of please that Cobb’s re-signed. Ted rolled the dice on Cobb last year, Cobb won the bet and it may have wound up costing the Packers more to keep him in the fold.
The question now is will that extra money keep him from being able to sign Bulaga?
An AR on the sidelines in sweats will make the money spent on Cobb look as effective as the ‘too big to fail’ bailout.
Great news for all. Maybe Abbrederis will contribute assuming he remains with the team.
And P.O.S. Suh is out of the NFCN. Awesome day!
Great news…but it’s old.
What about Bulaga? Any offers on the table? Any other team bringing him in for a visit?
Thank You Uncle Ted! Go Pack Go!!!
