Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on what you all think about the Randall Cobb situation that's quickly coming to a head.

We have a BYE after next week and it's fairly common to get these types of deals done during BYE weeks.

Has #18 shown enough to lock him up long term?

Will we just let him go due to the emergence of Adams and we have other needs that are more pressing than WR?

I personally would like to keep him (at a reasonable price of course).

This may be influenced by the fact that I own him on my dynasty league, but honestly I really think it makes sense to resign him at his market value. I know he's not the prototype, but having him, Jordy, and Adams on his rookie contract for the next 3 years sounds fantastic. Focus on building the trenches and I think this team will be a force going forward.

FYI, I don't think he's getting $13-15 per. Maybe I'm crazy, but I'm thinking $8-9 /yr. He's been productive, but that broken leg will probably drop his market value, regardless of the fact that it was a fluke injury. It limited his ability to prove he can produce even though he has shown that he can. He's also seen Jennings take the pay day in MN and go from a top WR to a guy who doesn't even get discussed.

He's not sniffing $13-$15 million per year, that's top 3 in the NFL for receivers. My guess is at best he's looking at a similar contract to Antonio Brown, maybe a little less.

for reference (yrs/total/guar):
Jordy Nelson - 4/39/11.5
Percy Harvin - 6/64/14.5
Victor Cruz - 5/43/15.6
Antonio Brown - 5/42/8.5
Golden Tate - 5/31/13.2
Danny Amendola - 5/29/10

he won't get more than Jordy.
I'd guess 5/40/12 range

How the hell do you give Tate $13.2 ?

Gonna be a lot of guys making $10 mill per or more on this team

no way cobb will get $10mil a year from GB. Not even close. There's only 7 WRs in the league making that: Calvin, Fitz, Wallace (lol), Bowe (lol), Vincent Jackson, Percy Harvin, Marshall.

not a chance Cobb sees that with Jordy on this team. he'll see 7.5-8.5 IMO.

Sanders got 5. Cobb is better. I see incog say 7.5-8.5, I am hoping for 6.0-7.0 but maybe incog is being more realistic than me.

Anyone underwhelmed with Cobb lately? he seemed like a guy with tons of potential but is really just mediocre.

He's on pace to catch 19 touchdowns

If it's anything more than the Victor Cruz contract, let him walk.

Still a bit too high, imo

I'm on the fence if I am or not. The homer in me says he has been extremely good, but realistically, outside of being a good RZ target this year he hasnt performed much between the 20's. I think we probably do overrate him a little bit. He's not a prototypical WR, but a quality slot receiver who would probably benefit more with a TE that was able to produce in the middle as well. I do want him back next year, I just dont want it to be on a 8-10 mil contract. Even 7-8 still seems a bit high to me. If we can get him for 5-7ish a year, I would be OK with him back.

cobb doesnt seem like the type that's in it for only the cash, but lets hope its no more than the 7ish per year range...

hes catching a ton of TD's right now so his team will use that as a bargaining chip along with the fact that hes still very young (was the youngest player in the 2011 draft iirc)

guess we'll see how the season plays out but if they let him walk, they'll clearly replace him in the draft & if there is 1 position that we can feel good about this brass drafting its clearly WR's

That refers to the guaranteed money, not how much he makes per year.
