Both Cobb and Nelson are both under contract until the end of the 2014 season, and both receivers will become unrestricted free agents afterwards.
Demovsky mentions that Cobb is a “must re-sign because he’s a budding star” while Nelson’s situation is more difficult due to the fact that he will be 29 next week. With that being said Demovsky questions how long Nelson will be effective and the length of the contract to offer Nelson.
Cobb and Nelson are one of the premier receiver tandems in the NFL and it would make sense for the Packers to lock both of them up to long-term extensions sooner rather than later. Should the Packers not give an extension to either receiver before next offseason it is unlikely the Packers would be able to retain both.
