Signed his 6 yr 46M deal i was reading a few minutes ago and they brought up the fact it may be a starting point for Randall Cobb if Ted decides to sign him up early. 6/46 is a bit low average BUT for a guy who can be controlled by the team for a few more years,its a nice deal and i personally would like to see TT buy out 2 years of Cobb restricted years for a nice lower average more cap friendly deal for the next several years.More Often then not,players will play pretty much to the end of those,So paying him more NOW and a lower amount later on ( then if he played out his arby years) will give us more cap flexibility AND lock him up.

Good point eric. If they plan on keep him around long term and a main ingredient in the Packers push for Super Bowl success then paying him now makes sense. I think they will wait though and pay more attention to the soon to be FAs. That being said it only means more money for Cobb in the long run. But slot guys have been getting less and less money. Maybe TT wants to wait and see how low it goes before extending him. Either way I hope Cobb is a Packer for a long long time! He brings more to the table than any other Packer WR I have seen for a long time. He will be a star, especially with Rodgers at QB.
