We begin in the NFL, and Green Bay Packers are still hopeful of reaching a deal to keep wideout Randall Cobb, who wants 9 million dollars a year.

The star receiver is set to test free agency this offseason, but Packers general manager Ted Thompson is still hopeful of working out a deal for Cobb.

Packers want to keep Cobb 

"We're working on several different levels with several different people," Thompson told NFL Network at the Scouting Combine. "We say the same thing every year, we mean it. It's not a secret that we try to keep and maintain our own guys as much as possible. We feel like that's a good investment for the organization. We feel like, especially, if we have good people like we do, we'd like to do that. We're trying to do that with Randall."

Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy was also quizzed on the future of star receiver Randall Cobb, and he echoed Thompson's thoughts.

"I want him back, we all want him back, he wants to get back. But you've got agents and it's a negotiation. Let's see what happens," McCarthy added. "... He's a four-down player, that's what you want. Smart player, great guy, he's a Packer."

NFL & NBA update 

Stick with the NFL, and shamed star running back Adrian Peterson says he's unsure about returning to the Minnesota Vikings next season.

Across to basketball, and Thursday night brought about two huge trades in the NBA. Kevin Garnett has returned to the Timberwolves via the Nets, and Goran Dragic has joined the Miami Heat after a huge trade with the Phoenix Suns.
