In news that Packers fan wanted to hear, Randall Cobb will be catching passes from Aaron Rodgers for the next four seasons.
Cobb was set to hit the free agent market before agreeing to terms with the organization that drafted him in the second round of the 2011 draft. The exact details of the contract were not yet known, but sources are saying the Packers will pay Cobb $40M over the course of the deal, which is nearly identical to the $39M contract extended to Jordy Nelson last season.
Cobb played in nearly ninety-percent of Green Bay’s offensive snaps in 2014 and registered career-highs in receptions (91), yards (1287) and TDs (12).
Green Bay now has its receiving corps, the first duo in NFL history to each record 90+ catches, 1200+ yards, and 12 or TDs in a season, intact through the 2018 season. Quarterback and reigning-NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers’ contract is goes through 2019.
