Report: Packers have made league aware of Randall Cobb availability
The Green Bay Packers are reportedly aggressively looking to move Randall Cobb.
Doubling down on a disputed previous report, Michael Lombardi of The Ringer said on The Ringer NFL Show podcast that “everybody in the league” is aware that the Packers wide receiver is on the block, but is unlikely to draw interest due to his salary and injury history.
"Everybody in the league knows Randall Cobb is available (for trade)." — @mlombardiNFL. Lombardi acknowledged Cobb likely has no market, however, based on salary & injury history. Can't be surprised if Cobb just gets cut. #Packers https://t.co/94ZUME3df3

Cobb had been the subject of similar reports a week ago, albeit disputed ones. There is some sense to them, though. Cobb is entering the final year of an $8.6 million deal, and while not a bad player, he’s caught fewer than 100 passes for two seasons running now. There’s clearly some doubt about his future in Green Bay.
