Randall Cobb sets Green Bay Packers History


Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb entered today’s game vs. the Tennessee Titans with an opportunity to make Packers history in just his second year in the NFL. Early in the contest, Cobb became the franchise leader for most combined net yards in a season with 2, 342 combined receiving, rushing, and return yardage.

Cobb was also the game’s leading receiver, with 62 yards and a touchdown and also had three punt returns for 39 yards before he left the game with an ankle injury and did not return. His services were not needed at that point, as the Packers blew away the Titans, 55-7. While it was a great accomplishment, Cobb is more focused on bringing home the Packers franchise their fifth Super Bowl championship:

There have been so many great players, it’s definitely an honor to be mentioned with those names. But I’m a championship guy. Records can be broken, but you can’t take championships away.

Congratulations to Cobb for this tremendous accomplishment. He’s quickly cementing himself in Packers history after a memorable collegiate career at the University of Kentucky that will hopefully earn him a spot in UK’s ring of honor someday.
