The Green Bay Packers experienced perhaps the most heartbreaking loss in team history as they blew a 16-point lead against the Seattle Seahawks and lost in overtime.
The offense was shut down by the Seahawks’ defense in the second half as they were only able to score six points. Wide receiver Randall Cobb is now set to become a free agent, and the Packers did not give him a contract extension during the season.
However, Cobb expressed his desire to re-sign with the Packers.
“Of course (I want to be back). I think I’ve made that obvious. Like I’ve said before: This is a business. You don’t know how it’s going to go,” the Packers wide receiver said to NFL.com.
It will be difficult for the Packers to refuse to give him a new deal as he experienced the best season of his four-year career with 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns.
He is reportedly seeking a contract that is similar to New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz though, which is worth $43 million over five years.
The Packers have a chance to lock up a receiving corps that would consist of Cobb, Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams for the next few years. Nelson had signed a four-year, $39 million contract before the 2014 season.
