Report: Packers not shopping Randall Cobb
Are the Green Bay Packers shopping wide receiver Randall Cobb? Reporters are split on the matter.
The Ringer’s Mike Lombardi said on his podcast that Cobb’s name has been shopped around in trade talks.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says that while some teams have checked in with the Packers about Cobb, the team is not shopping him.
Saw this referenced on @ringer. It’s normal for teams to inquire about players entering the last year of their contract. I know of some that checked on Randall Cobb. But the #Packers are not shopping him & expect him contributing on their team. https://t.co/A489Swjael

There is a big difference between others checking to see if a player is available versus a team shopping one, which suggests they are actively looking to get rid of the player.
Cobb, 28, is making $8.6 million in the final year of four-year deal. He, Davante Adams and Jimmy Graham are expected to give Aaron Rodgers some excellent receiving options this season, especially with the team having moved on from Jordy Nelson.
