Randall Cobb keen on new Packers deal

Randall Cobb is still waiting to find out whether he will remain with the Green Bay Packers next season - and admits he is keen on staying put for now.

The 23-year-old has burst on the scene and is now regarded as one the finest young wide receivers in the game.

He's a free agent next year and would be in line to receive a huge new deal were he to leave the Packers.

As thing stands his team are playing their cards close to their chest - although it is highly unlikely that they will let him hit in the open market.

"Not that I know of," Cobb said when asked if he had been offered an improved contract yet. "My agent hasn't mentioned it to me, so I don't know if there's been any talks."

Despite the potential lucrative nature of a big payday elsewhere, Cobba admits he's happy to stay put for now.

"I would definitely love that," he said. "But unfortunately that won't be my decision. That will be on the team to come to me with that decision."

"I would love to get it out the way and not to have to worry about any of the conversations or answering any questions during the season that would take away from what we're trying to do as a football team."

It may not that be straight-forward however - the Packers have plenty of options out wide.

They'll surely look to secure James Jones in the offseason, meaning one of Cobb or Jordy Nelson may leave.

Despite that, it seems highly unlikely that Cobb will be allowed to walk away and into the arms of a rival.
