GREEN BAY PACKERS
RANDALL COBB – WR
TIM MASTHAY – P

Consider Green Bay the Denver of the NFC as two former Wildcats start for the Packers. Randall Cobb has been tabbed as one of the breakout players for the NFL this year and will be following up on his outstanding rookie season. Cobb made his impact known in week one for the Packers with a kick return 108 yards for a TD and catching a TD reception. Unfortunately, Cobb got lost with all the other Packer weapons at WR and finished with 25 catches for 375 yards and a TD. He did have 2 return TD’s and racked up 1236 yards in return yardage. As of now, Cobb has Greg Jennings and James Jones ahead of him on the WR depth chart, but he is an injury away from putting up very respectable numbers. In his second year contract, Cobb will make $729,414.

Tim Masthay has emerged as one of the top punters in the NFL with a 45.6% punting average and pinned his opponents within their 20 41.6% of the time. Tim just signed a five year, $6,005,000 contract.

MIAMI DOLPHINS
CHANDLER BURDEN – OG

Burden was in camp with Tennessee but was waived. He signed with Miami just a few days ago but I could not find any contract terms. It’s hard to speculate what a new coach may do, but Burden should get a chance to fight for a roster spot with Miami.

NEW YORK JETS
JOHN CONNER – FB

The Terminator has a solid hold on the starting FB spot for the Jets and as far as I can tell has not been engaged in any of the drama of a REx Ryan team. Conner is one of the top young blocking FB’s in football and has two seasons left on his rookie contract which will pay him $547,870 this year. Don’t expect Conner to carry the ball much as he has just 21 carries for 88 yards and 2 TD’s in his two seasons in the league.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
MYRON PRYOR – DT

Pryor started out last season like a man on fire, but was placed on the IR due to a shoulder injury after just two games. At the time of the injury, Pryor was a key backup for the Pats and should have a chance to compete this year and battle for playing time. Pryor will make $592,870 in the last year of his rookie contract.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
TREVARD LINDLEY – CB

After a 2010 rookie season that saw him play in 11 games, Lindley was waived right before the 2011 season. HE is back with the Eagles on a “reserve” contract that can pay $465,000. it’s hard to say if Lindley will stick with the Eagles, but he can provide some depth.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ers
ANTHONY MOSLEY – DB

It appears that Mosley will be a 49er this year as he has a 3 year, $1,440,000 contract. He has a good chance to make the roster at cornerback, but lets remember that Ronnie Sneed also signed a similar three year deal as well, so nothing is guaranteed. The fact he has a three year deal rather than a one year deal would indicate the 49ers saw something they liked.

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
WINSTON GUY – DB

From all indications, the Seahawks really like Guy and have signed him to a 4 year, $2,210,060 deal. It appears that Guy has a real shot at getting playing time and could compete for the backup SS position behind Kam Chancellor.
