Randall Cobb hosts camp for kids

Packers wideout focused on becoming a No. 1 receiver

LEXINGTON, Kentucky (WKBT) - With the Packers on a break, Randall Cobb is using his time to host a couple of skills camps for kids.

Saturday, the wide receiver hosted around 150 kids near his alma mater in Lexington, Kentucky. Proceeds benefit the Shriner's Hospital for Children. Sunday's camp is in his hometown in Tennessee.

Cobb played in only six games last season after fracturing his fibula against Baltimore.

"I was fortunate enough that there was no ligament damage. It was just a bone issue so once my bone healed up, I was good to go. There was nothing wrong at camp," he said.

The former Wildcat made a name for himself in the NFL as a return specialist, but he said those days are likely behind him. Now, Cobb is focused on becoming an elite receiver.

"Me being the player that I am, I love my versatility. I love playing everywhere on the field, but I think for me to be considered a number one receiver, considered an elite receiver, I have to focus on that so that's been my focus in the off-season. Like I always said, I'm a team player first so if they need me back there returning, that's what I'll do."

Cobb is set to be a free agent after this season.
