Randall Cobb dismisses doubts about Packers WRs, says rookie Christian Watson has 'total package'

In the aftermath of wide receiver Davante Adams' departure in favor of playing with his college quarterback Derek Carr and childhood team, the Las Vegas Raiders, the Green Bay Packers began the offseason staring at a wide receiver room with many questions and few answers. And that was before free-agent wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling took his talents to Kansas City, intrigued by the opportunity to replace Tyreek Hill.

Randall Cobb, one of Aaron Rodgers' most trusted pass-catchers, recently offered up at least one answer for the doubters, Bobby Kownack of reports.

"I really don't care," Cobb told reporters during the club's organized team activities this week. "I've been doubted my whole life. You think I care? I wouldn't be here. People didn't want me here, I'm here. People didn't want me to leave, I'm here. People didn't want me on the Packers, I'm here. People didn't want me traded back here, I'm here. I don't care about what anybody got to say. I'm going to go out and do what I'm supposed to do and have fun doing it, put a smile on my face and try to win some games."

Last offseason, when even more precarious questions swirled around the front office and its ability to mend an icy relationship with Rodgers, it was Cobb who provided an answer then as well. Green Bay's willingness to trade for Cobb and foster a Lambeau homecoming for the wideout after he spent one year apiece with the Cowboys and Texans essentially amounted to a thank you present to Rodgers for coming back into the fold.

For what it's worth, Cobb has already recognized Christian Watson's ability to do -- if not five or 10 -- at least a few things very well.

"He has the total package," Cobb said. "Just being around him for the past week and seeing some of the things he can do, he has all the tools. He's very gifted. It's about applying it, taking the stuff he learns in the classroom, taking it to the field. He has the tools. It's about refining those tools. And it takes time."
