- As if Green Bay Packer Nation couldn’t love Randall Cobb any more, another report comes out about this. Randall Cobb weighed his options this off-season but stability for his young family attracted the veteran slot receiver back to the Green Bay Packers on a reduced salary. Cobb, who turns 32 in August, agreed to slash his base salary by over $5 million to stay in the Green and Gold.

Randall Cobb said he took a hefty pay cut to stay in Green Bay because he wants stability for his kids after moving so often the last couple years.

“Maybe I could have said, ‘Hey, I’m not taking a pay cut,’ and went and played someplace else. But I’ve moved five times in the past four years. I’ve got kids now,” Cobb said. “I want to have a little stability for my kids. That’s my focus, first and foremost. They have familiarity with being here in Green Bay, and I want to keep that for them.”
Over 12 games last season, Cobb caught 28 passes for 375 yards and five touchdowns. He exited a win over the Los Angeles Rams in November with a core muscle injury that required surgery but was able to return for the Packers’ playoff loss to the 49ers.
Randall Cobb continues to be one of the fan favorites in Green Bay and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
