    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb set a franchise record and led the NFL with 2,342 all-purpose yards last season. If not for a late-season ankle injury, he might have become the first player in NFL history with 1,000 yards apiece receiving and returning kickoffs.
    The expectations are even higher this year with Greg Jennings and Donald Driver out of the picture.

    "I really don't think I've peaked yet," Cobb said last week, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I'm 22 years old. I've got a lot of learning still to do."

    Coach Mike McCarthy's preference is to remove Cobb from the kick-return game to increase his role on offense. Aaron Rodgers is counting on Cobb to replace Jennings as his go-to receiver. "I think Randall Cobb is a guy who could be a 100-plus catch guy every year," Rodgers said Wednesday, via ESPNWisconsin.com's Jason Wilde.
