MILWAUKEE (AP) - Randall Cobb passed up five offers to stay in a comfortable situation with the Green Bay Packers.

Now Cobb is looking forward to keeping the Packers' offense humming with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and fellow receiver Jordy Nelson also locked up for years to come.

Cobb said Tuesday that leaving Green Bay was a possibility, but he wasn't sure if it was a serious option. In the end, Cobb says his heart was with the Packers.

The sides agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal over the weekend to avoid free agency, which starts Tuesday.

After Cobb, right tackle Bryan Bulaga might be the next priority for the Packers. He was part of one of the best offensive lines in coach Mike McCarthy's nine-year tenure in Green Bay.
