Green Bay Packers were set for a busy few weeks after reports had suggested they would lose star receiver Randall Cobb in the next few weeks during the free agency period.
Reports in the past few weeks had suggested that Randall Cobb wanted a new deal worth $9 million a year, but Ian Rapoport revealed on Saturday night that the Packers had agreed a deal with Cobb that will see him earn $40 million over four years, with $17 million of that guaranteed.
It’s safe to say that that is a very good deal for Cobb, but Packers fans will be happy too because he’s only 24 and has some stellar seasons ahead of him.
Furthermore, the thing that should make Packers fans warm to Cobb even more after this deal is the fact that he was offered more money by several teams across the league. That is, according to Rapoport after he tweeted the following late on Saturday.
This revelation just shows how much Cobb loves the Packers, but has the deal gone down well with Packers fans? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
