Packers, Cobb Still Not Close To Contract Extention

Considering that he's been an offensive force ever since his NFL debut in 2011, Packers WR Randall Cobb deserves a contract extension. 

Cobb, who will be a free agent after the 2014 season, will make just over $1 million this year, a salary simply too low to make him wanna stay.

Still, according to FoxSports.com, the youngster and the team are nowhere near a new deal, something possibly worthy of a panic.

Last year, Cobb did play in just six games due to a knee injury, but in the end, this news is still a little worrisome. In recent years, #18 has been Mr. Reliable for Green Bay, so the thought of him leaving is definitely not comforting.

I'm not worried. These things can come together pretty quickly.

Cobb's a hard player to compare to. He's somewhat similar to DeSean Jackson (who just received $8 million annually) but Jackson's had three 1000 yard seasons while Cobb's had zero. Cobb's 3+ years younger than Jackson, so an extension now is more about expectations than past performance. But NFL teams usually pay based on past performance.
