Randall Cobb, the Green Bay Packers wide receiver who is seen as one of, if not the top free agent still unsigned, will have plenty of suitors knocking on his door in the coming hours and days.

That’s because as of 11 a.m. (CST) today, Saturday, March 7, the Packers lost their exclusive negotiating rights with four-year phenom Randall Cobb; Cobb is now open to negotiate with whomever he pleases.

Adam Schefter calls it “Legal Tampering.”

And then at 3 p.m. this coming Tuesday, Cobb will be free to sign with any team he likes.

The question at this point is which direction he goes. But even more importantly – and a question raised this morning by Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press Gazette – is whether leaving Green Bay would be in Cobb’s best interest.
