GREEN BAY, Wis. – When the Green Bay Packers traded for Randall Cobb at the behest of Aaron Rodgers just before the start of training camp, they inherited the final two years of Cobb’s three-year, $27 million contract.
That’s a lot of money for a player who can’t get on the field.
Through the first two games, Cobb has played 27 offensive snaps. He’s been productive in that limited playing time with four receptions for 58 yards, including two big third-down conversions in the second half of last week’s victory over Detroit.
However, there are reasons why Cobb will have to be content with limited playing time.
