Packers WR Randall Cobb told reporters on Sunday that he doesn’t believe he has done enough to warrant an extension from the team.
“I don’t believe I’ve done enough, and I think that’s on me,” said Cobb, via Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin. “Last year, I missed 10 weeks, I got injured in a way that there was nothing I could do about it. I think my job is just to come out here every day, do what I’m supposed to, continue to work hard and hopefully my time will come.”
Green Bay locked up WR Jordy Nelson to a four-year extension on Saturday, which leaves Cobb as the next extension candidate to be addressed.
“I feel I have a lot to prove,” Cobb added. “I know the player I’m capable of being. And it’s just going out and showing that on a day-to-day basis.”
Cobb, 23, is in the final year of his rookie contract and stands to make just $812,648 for the 2014 season. He missed a number of games with a leg fracture last year, but in 2012, he caught 80 passes for 954 yards receiving and scored eight touchdowns.
