The Green Bay Packers are working to re-sign impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb, and have exclusive negotiating rights until Saturday, March 7, at 3pm, and exclusive signing rights until Tuesday, March 10. The team has been working to hammer out a deal with Cobb for six months. With WRs Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams under contract, the team did not feel the need to use a franchise tag on Cobb like the Dallas Cowboys did with WR Dez Bryant, and the Denver Broncos did with WR Demaryius Thomas. According to sources, the team said they would sign Cobb to a five-year deal averaging $8-9 million per season, and his agent said he feels confident they can get more on the open market.
Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Cobb playing for another team in 2015, but it is possible the Packers could get him back into the fold if the offers aren't as lucrative as Cobb's agent expects. Either way, Cobb will be a top-flight fantasy option again next season.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is unlikely to re-sign with the team, barring something unexpected. The Packers have attempted to sign Cobb for six months with little room for optimism. The Packers have tried to sign him to a five-year deal worth around $8-$9 million per year.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb had a monster season opposite of Jordy Nelson. Leaving will most likely hurt him, as his most aggressive suitors are the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders. Can Cobb continue to perform at an elite level on an island by himself? It's possible, but he slips to a low-end WR1 or a high-end WR2 in a situation like this.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb posted 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014, and he will turn 25 in August. He still has room for improvement. Fantasy owners are likely hoping he stays with Aaron Rodgers, as they have jelled together nicely in Cobb's first four NFL seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb figures to be re-signed instead of hitting the free-agent market as he is coming off a career year in which he totaled 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns. He'll remain in the WR1 conversation, especially in point-per-reception leagues, if/when he get re-signed.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said prior to the start of the 2014 season that he would prove that he deserved a contract extension, and he finished the season with career highs in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb established himself as one of Aaron Rodger's main targets and one of the most reliable fantasy receivers in the game. As long as he re-signs in Green Bay as expected, he should provide WR1 value in 2015.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent CB Tramon Williams and the team have not yet begun talks on a new contract; and Williams doesn't even know if he's wanted back, according to his agent. Green Bay is currently focused on re-signing impending free-agents WR Randall Cobb and OT Bryan Bulaga, so Williams could simply be further down on the Packers' priority list.
