    Is he a free agent or a restricted free agent? Will GB resign him?

    I don’t want Cobb back. The Packers need to get over this thing they do where they sign guys who are often hurt. As much as I liked Cobb the person, his production dropped big time his last couple season...even when he was able to play. I would’ve loveD Cordarelle Patterson as his replacement, but those damn Bears!!

    Unless he's willing to take a very VERY friendly deal, he's gone.

    Man, I missed this moment. Cobb is such a great guy but unfortunately due to age and injuries I dont see him be back either

    Tate would make a lot of sense. Would be a solid number 2 and wouldn't take a long deal. At the same time I am probably someone who thinks this team is closer to competing than others especially after the additions to the defense yesterday

    Tate is intriguing to me.. I think he works hard and still has something left

    Id rather draft Brown/Samuel/Isabella/Hardman and let them battle with Kumerow for the slot wr spot than add Tate or Williams on which I feel will be inflated contracts. Just my two cents.

    also very familiar with the division, though I don't think his numbers against the division are anything spectacular. quick search tells me about 5grabs a game for 50yds. But the help he had in Detroit was not great so hard to look at that stat line and judge him on that.

    We need to draft defense a mlb and a edge the first two picks nobody else yesterdays signings mean nothing has history shows on our team players get injured early and often they have 3 decent linebackers now that is not enough

    Williams is going to try to get stupid money, like $14 mill a year. I doubt he gets it, but watch him try.

    Tate would be 31 when the season starts. I doubt he has that much to offer over Cobb.

    We will expect a team friendly deal from Cobb. Saints will offer more and he'll leave.

    Why is everyone interested in Golden Tate all of a sudden? For guys always talking about age being an issue and whatnot, he's 2 years older than Cobb. On top of that Cobb in the past few years has been better than Tate. Plus he's more familiar with the system and he has chemistry with Rodgers. I get Cobb was injured for the most part this season, but still that would actually buffer our chances getting him on the cheap rather than signing someone else.

    Personally I think we need to resign the dude, because I'm hearing New Orleans and possibly New England have an interest in him, and I'd rather neither of those two teams get him. Cobb is only 28 you guys.

    I was equally confused at the people who thought Cole Beasley was better than Cobb.

    I completely agree with the first part of your post, idk why forum members would take an older Tate (who wil get $$$) over a younger, familiar Cobb (who will probably get only two $$).

    That being said Im for letting Cobb walk, he will definitely get more than he is worth and not only has he an extensive injury history now, he has notable lost some of that what made him a good player along the way (explosive- and shiftiness)

    But the thing is who exactly is better than him that's remaining? If it's a money thing then you have me there, but to my recollection last year was when Cobb really fell off the map in regards to injuries. Yes, I'm aware that he's suffered some during the previous years, but nothing that had taken him out for substantial periods of time. In comparison to how many games this year. I don't recall him going on IR.

    Then take into account that he's a good return man, has great chemistry with Rodgers, very agile and quick, along with his intelligence on the field, I can't think of anyone that comes in and would fill the void he would leave right away. This is the same thing I warned you guys about when you guys said letting go of Jordy was a good idea, when I felt he could've at least stayed for another year.

    If it's the money, then I understand, other than that I'm keeping him personally for a friendly deal.

    I think the chemistry with Rodgers is very underrated in this instance, and when Cobb was hurt and teams would double Adams or he wasn't open. How many throwaways were there? How many sacks? Rodgers yelling "come back to me!" and eyerolls.

    And it all comes down to losing Jordy who seemed to have eyes in the back of his head to know when Rodgers rolled out and ran to the open spot and Cobb not being there that knows to help Rodgers help himself. The young guys seemed to stand in the middle of no where and watch him get hit.

    So if it could be a team friendly deal to keep him around, just the relationship with Rodgers alone would be huge. At some point they need to keep a weapon that Rodgers gels with.

    Im not in favor of signing any of the remainings FA's at WR as I believe all are 3rd tier (some 2nd tier at best) and will probably be offered more than I am comfortable with the Packers offering them given our limited amount of cap space. If we want to replace Cobb, there are some very explosive slot wr's in the draft in Brown/Samuel (around the end of the 1st/beginning of the 2nd), Isabella (2/3) and Hardman/Mclaurin (3/4 round).

    I'd rather spend the remaining cap we have on resigning Allison + either resigning Breeland or signing a guy like Zach Brown

    But why Allison? Has Allison really showed anything that is worth another contract extension? I certainly haven't seen it. If anything I think MVS and Kumerow will beat him out eventually, assuming we don't keep Cobb. I know he's had some flashes here and there, but nothing that was impressive if you ask me.

    This is was why I was not completely against having a weapon such as Brown or Odell on the roster, because I know their play on the field would do for the offense. We are very limited offensively right now. Outside of Devante who do we have that the opposing offenses fear? I get Rodgers will do his thing, but again we saw how frustration pertaining to these receivers at times. They just aren't ready yet. I think we need to bite the bullet and bring Cobb back.

    Opposing defenses wont be frightened by Cobb either. Allison I would bring back PRECISELY for the reason that you would like to bring Cobb back. Chemistry and familiarity for Aaron. Furthermore he is young and still a player who is on the up, and last but not least, he will not take as big of a chunk of our remaining cap space as Cobb would.

    Adams - Allison - draft pick in the slot (Brown/Samuel/Isabella/Hardman) - MVS - ESB - Kumerow would be a very solid WR corps imo.

    I'm not advocating for Tate but this is inaccurate. Tate has been slightly better on a per 16 game basis over the last 4 years. Tate is far more reliable from an injury standpoint as well (only missing 2 games in the last 8 years). Given the choice and assuming the $ was the same, I'd take Tate. That being said, I'd be surprised if either wind up in GB, and I'd rather try and find that slot WR in the draft.

    FWIW, Cole Beasley has been comparable (albeit worse) to Cobb on a per 16 game basis over the last 4 years as well.

    Allison's main problem has been health. He only appeared in 5 games last year (I think actually 6, but was hurt early in the 6th? 1 target, 0 receptions.)

    He projects to a ~900 yard receiver. Not flashy, but solid.
