WR Cobb makes good first impression with Packers
Tuesday, August 2, 2011
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Randall Cobb didn't disappear when the Green Bay Packers finally did some hitting in practice.
The second-round draft pick out of Kentucky made several nice catches Monday night, the Packers' first training camp practice in pads.
Although Cobb is expected to make his most immediate contributions to the Packers as a returner, he also wants to prove he can play wide receiver.
It won't be easy. The Packers just re-signed free agent James Jones to an already well-stocked group of wide receivers that includes Greg Jennings, Donald Driver and Jordy Nelson. Playmaking tight end Jermichael Finley is returning from an injury. And there are only so many passes to go around.
