The Packers could move on from Randall Cobb this offseason
The Green Bay Packers are still waiting to hear back from Aaron Rodgers on his plans for the 2023 season. If Rodgers decides he wants to play next season, and in Green Bay, the Packers might try and sign a few offensive pieces the veteran quarterback wants, like Randall Cobb. But one wide receiver recently became available that might be intriguing if the Packers don’t extend Cobb.
Rodgers would prefer to play with Cobb and Allen Lazard next season. But the Packers appear to be acting less aggressively to keep those wide receivers. The Packers chose to let Cobb’s salary hit the team’s dead cap for 2023 rather than extend him before the February 20th deadline. The team could be looking for veteran help, either for Rodgers, or Jordan Love, for the 2023 season.
Robert Woods is now available
According to multiple reports, the Tennessee Titans released wide receiver Robert Woods Wednesday. The Titans made the cut to save $12 million in cap space for next season. He was the Titans leading wide receiver last season. Though his numbers were short of being elite, the Titans’ offense as a whole struggled with poor quarterback play.
There’s a good chance the Packers could sign Woods for a bargain this offseason. Woods has been in the league for 11 years, so the age combined with his numbers last year will cheapen the price of his services in 2023.
However, Woods has a history of high production. Woods had two seasons, 2018-19, where he 1,219 and 1,134 yards receiving, respectively. He would be an upgrade for the Packers over Randall Cobb, or potentially Lazard, should the Packers not sign them for next season.
