Combine on NFL Network
In advance of the draft, Marcus Mariota and others will look to showcase their skills at the combine (Feb. 17-23), only on NFL Network. SCHEDULE
Instead the sides will attempt to negotiate a long-term deal, discussions of which could take place this week at the NFL Scouting Combine, as the March 10 free agency date approaches.
ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky's reports that Cobb is seeking a contract that averages in the $9 million per year range.
Cobb currently sits as one of the most sought after receiver targets in a market flush with talent -- and more could join that group. His ability to play multiple positions and run-after-the catch ability provides unique ability among his peers.
The 24-year-old is coming off his best season: 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns. With those numbers, Cobb is set to cash in on the open market. The question is whether the Packers will pay his asking price, or whether he'll change addresses to get paid his worth.
