When it came time to deciding which of the receivers to sign first, the Green Bay Packers gave Jordy Nelson a four-year contract extension worth nearly $40 million.

One would assume that Randall Cobb would be next.

But Cobb said he has a lot to prove.

Following Sunday’s practice, Cobb said, “I don’t believe I’ve done enough, and I think that’s on me.”

Cobb missed 10 weeks last season with a leg injury (broken leg).  In 2012, he caught 80 passes for 954 yards and eight touchdowns.

Cobb returned to catch the game-winning touchdown pass at Chicago in Week 17, but one wonders if the Packers want to see more from Cobb before they back up the truck and give him a big contract.

There doesn’t appear to be any serious talks between Cobb’s agent and the Packers.

Cobb has seen how the business side of professional football can go with Donald Driver, Greg Jennings and James Jones.  He said, “I don’t believe any of us are deserving of anything.  So I’m going to continue to be the person I am, do what I’m supposed to do and when that time comes, if it comes, it’ll be a blessing.”
