GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Mike McCarthy said this offseason that receiver Randall Cobb's status as the team's kick returner will be up to his teammates.

If someone else proved capable in that role, the Green Bay Packers coach would remove Cobb from special teams and allow him to concentrate solely on his duties within the offense -- which are expected to be wide-ranging.

One by one through the first five practices of training camp, the Packers have tried myriad returners: Jeremy Ross, Sam Shields, James Nixon, Loyce Means, Jordy Nelson, Johnathan Franklin and even Omarius Hines (the free agent receiver signed on Monday).

To date, none has shown enough for McCarthy to take Cobb off of special teams. Franklin, for example, muffed a kickoff that came out of the JUGS machine during Wednesday’s practice.

“If we were to play a game tomorrow,” McCarthy said Wednesday, “Randall would be my returner. The opportunities that these young men had, the preseason will sort that out for us.”

I like what Cobb can do on ST. Certainly. I don't like a starter playing on ST unless there is a real need and it is late in the season or the playoffs.

We have discussed it before, the average yardage difference between most returners is not that much. Not muffing the ball would be a major factor as well. But I think it is a matter of practice and getting comfortable with the job.

TheKanataThrilla (6h) : Would we consider trying Rollins a S?
gbguy20 (6h) : so what's the deal then, are we to expect to see josh Jones in Morgan Burnetts spot this season? i guess I can't say I'm opposed to the idea.
Smokey (12h) : BG is in no hurry to anounce a new Rodgers deal. Smart !
gbguy20 (13h) : When is Rodgers signing that extension that was supposedly only awaiting Kirk? Typing on a phone makes things tough.
Nonstopdrivel (15h) : That's what I was thinking: I wasn't aware that he was quitting.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Hopefully not for a long time. We need him.
gbguy20 (20h) : when is 12 resigning
Nonstopdrivel (22h) : I have to say I like it, even if it means I have to put up with occasional ads for Maseratis. 😂
Nonstopdrivel (23h) : Interestingly, since I blocked third-party cookies, ads I see tend to relate to the content of the page instead of my most recent Amazon searches.
TheKanataThrilla (17-Mar) : Mathieu to Texans? I thought he wanted to go to a play that was all about winning football games?
hardrocker950 (17-Mar) : Bears already matched
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Bears will certainly match it though. Maybe restructure after year one?
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : but bears got lots of money, didn't think anyone would make the offer
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : good question
Nonstopdrivel (16-Mar) : Can another team come and big even higher, or is it a one-off thing?
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Bears WILL match the Kyle Fuller offer, but still, good move.
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : @RapSheet Source: The #Raiders are expected to sign #Colts FA CB Rashaan Melvin. More defensive talent adde
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Packers sign Bears CB Kyle Fuller to offer sheet
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Packers have signed TE @TheJimmyGraham. Graham will wear No. 80 for the Packers

Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Eagles are releasing DL Vinny Curry
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : CB Bashaud Breeland cut his foot in a non-football injury and it got infected, source said. He is now a few months away from being able to pass a physical.
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : @massey_evan Can confirm that the #Packers have been in touch with Tyrann Mathieu.
hardrocker950 (16-Mar) : Good CBs don't come around every day... It shouldn't be a surprise that they get paid well.
DarkaneRules (16-Mar) : These CB contracts were out of control. Maybe there's value in the later rounds of FA
DarkaneRules (16-Mar) : pack runs a tight ship
Cheesey (16-Mar) : Jennings didn’t act like a jerk when he was here. After he left he did.
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : We should bring S Eric Reid, played some LB and is just 26.
Smokey (16-Mar) : OK--> lol
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : ww = we ? I'm not sure.
Smokey (16-Mar) : Who is ww ?
gbguy20 (16-Mar) : the way greg has acted since he left i can't believe ww ever liked him
Cheesey (15-Mar) : Jordy got his big payday. And went to the team where players go to die.
Cheesey (15-Mar) : Jennings must still think he’s the GREATEST! (That’s why he’s no longer wanted as a player)
