Report: Raiders targeting Randall Cobb in free agency

Tuesday February 24th, 2015

The Oakland Raiders are expected to target Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb in free agency, ESPN's Bill Williamson reports.

Cobb, 24, caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last season for the Packers. It was reported earlier this month that he wants a contract worth around $9 million per season.

Williamson reports the Packers are expected to sign Cobb to a new contract before he can enter free agency. The Packers finished last season ranked No. 1 in scoring and No. 6 in yards gained.
