According to reports circulating the Internet, Randall Cobb will be running routes for the Green Bay Packers this fall as the second round draft pick has been signed.

Compared by many to the Vikings’ Percy Harvin, Cobb’s addition to the team should add a new wrinkle to the Packers offense and in addition, the rookie could also be used on special teams.

Bus Cook, a familiar name among Packers fans … Brett Favre’s agent … has announced that Derek Sherrod, the team’s first round draft choice, has also agreed in principle, but the two sides are still trying to agree on the number of years that will be guaranteed.

In addition, the Packers continued their signing frenzy by reaching a deal with sixth-rounder D.J. Smith. With these signings, the Packers have yet to ink third round running back Alex Green, fourth round pickDavon House and seventh-rounder Lawrence Guy.
