Randall Cobb has accepted a $5.5 million pay cut to remain in Green Bay.
With the restructure, the veteran wide receiver will make $3 million, which helps the Packers get under the salary cap prior to the new league year. The 31-year-old has played 9 of his 11 professional seasons in Wisconsin where he has always had a great connection with Aaron Rodgers. The Packers need all the cap room they can get while they continue to negotiate a contract with Davante Adams.
Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel speculates that the Packers could release veteran wide receiver Randall Cobb this offseason.
Cobb's return to the Packers last offseason was memorable as it coincided with the end of Aaron Rodgers' holdout. Though 12 games, the veteran wideout tallied 28 catches, 375 yards, and five touchdowns. Thus far, he has spent 11 seasons with the Packers and one apiece with the Cowboys and Texans. It remains to be seen which jersey he'll don in 2022, assuming he intends to keep playing pro football.
Per Aaron Wilson, the Packers have activated Randall Cobb off of injured reserve.
Cobb has spent the past several weeks on injured reserve but has since been activated off the list ahead of their playoff game with the 49ers this weekend. The move likely means the veteran will play this weekend.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers.
Cobb has been sidelined since Week 12 with a core injury. The veteran slot receiver has not been very consistent for the Packers in terms of snaps and production but could be leaned on during the playoffs. At the very least, he should give Aaron Rodgers a trusted safety valve when he is on the field.
