NFC North Notes: Randall Cobb, Bears, Packers

Randall Cobb

Packers WR Randall Cobb (foot) is no longer using a walking boot and will be “involved” in training camp, but has yet to talk to the team’s medical staff.

I will be involved in training camp when training camp comes around. I don’t know I haven’t talked to the medical staff we’ll see what they have to say. I look great. I feel great,” said Cobb, via WBAY.com.

Bears

  • Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk reports that the standoff between the Bears and first-round LB Roquan Smith is more about the structure of the contract rather than offset language.
  • According to Florio, the future guaranteed money and the structure of roster bonuses paid in future years the two specific areas impacting talks with players taken in the bottom of the top 10 like Smith.
  • On Thursday, Bears GM Ryan Pace told reporters that they’re “optimistic” first-round LB Roquan Smith will report to the team soon. (Tom Pelissero)
  • Bears HC Matt Nagy said they do not expect to have any players open camp on the PUP list and both WR Allen Robinson and G Kyle Long are ready to roll. (Brad Biggs)

Packers

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said that WR Davante Adams has assumed the role as the lead receiver for the team following the departure of Jordy Nelson.

He’s going to be looked at as more of the go-to guy outside the building,” Rodgers said, via Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com. “Naturally, that would probably be the progression for fans to think that way, but I throw it to the open guy. He happens to be open a lot. So I’m sure he’s going to get a lot of opportunities to continue to be that guy.”

Rodgers added that Adams must continue focusing on improving all the qualities that made him a “Pro Bowl-caliber” player.

He’s just got to continue to improve on what he’s done every year. He’s gotten better every year. If he can play 16 games, he’s a Pro Bowl-caliber receiver.”
