Report: Packers could move on from Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson
The Green Bay Packers could look different on offense next year due to some big decisions looming.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Rob Demovsky reported Friday that, after signing a long-term contract with wide receiver Davante Adams, two other highly-paid Green Bay receivers — Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson — could face a pay cut or a release after the season.
Randall Cobb has one more year left on his 4-year, $40 million deal while Jordy Nelson has one more season on a 4-year, $39 million deal. One or both could be in danger of being released or having to take a pay cut this offseason, per @RobDemovsky.

The Packers have committed themselves to Adams, which could be bad news for the other two. Though Cobb and Nelson have been favorite targets of Aaron Rodgers, the financial realities of the league mean that one or both could be shown the door unless they give some money back.
