Nelson would like deal before the season

(WNFL)- The Green Bay Packers' two top receivers are both in their contract years. Jordy Nelson says he'd like a new deal before the start of the regular season in September -- while Randall Cobb says he has no control over what happens. Nobody knows whether the Packers will be able to re-up with both standouts, both of whom have said they want to return. Nelson says he's not sure if his agent has started meaningful contract talks yet. Cobb says he doesn't want to know -- and it's all in the hands of his agent and GM Ted Thompson. Nelson is entering the final season of a three-year, 14-million-dollar extension. The seventh-year pro had his best season in 2013 with 85 catches for 13-hundred-14 yards. Nelson is definitely a bargain for the Packers, with the 34th-highest salary among NFL wide-outs. Cobb is entering his fourth season with the Pack, in the final year of his rookie deal. He missed 10 games with a leg injury last season, but he came back in time to help the Packers make the playoffs with a long fourth-down touchdown catch near the end of Green Bay's regular season finale at Chicago. Meanwhile, fans attending this week's OTA practices are getting their first look at second-round receiver Davante Adams from Fresno State. He missed last week's workouts while attending the players union's "Rookie Premiere" event.
