The Green Bay Packers officially announced Monday that they have re-signed former University of Kentucky star Randall Cobb.
"I'm so excited," Cobb said in an interview posted on the team's website. "It was a very stressful last couple of months. ... It's just a blessing, and I'm excited to be back."
Terms of the agreement were not released, but the Associated Press previously reported that it was a four-year, $40 million deal.
"I love this team. I love this organization," Cobb said. "The four years I've had here have been phenomenal."
Never miss a local story.
Cobb capitalized on a career year when he had 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns. He joined Jordy Nelson to become a potent receiving tandem during quarterback Aaron Rodgers' MVP campaign.
Cobb said he had been in contact with Nelson and Rodgers during the past couple of months, but they "didn't sell me on anything. ... I know what I have here."
He chose to stay with the Packers despite reports that he had more lucrative offers.
"I want championships," Cobb said. "I feel like being in this offense, in this organization, was the best place for me to win those championships. That's my goal, day in and day out, is to get those rings. I'm going to do everything in my power to help this team get to that position."
Cobb said the big contract won't change his approach to the game.
"It's still the same me," he said. "Obviously, my price may have changed a little bit but ... I'm going out and every day with the same intention to get better, to continue to grow as a player, and to be the best player I can be. I don't think I'm where I can get to."
And there's still a lot of work to do, including avenging a loss to the Seattle Seahawks in this year's NFC Championship game.
"I don't think I can ever get over that. ... It left a sour taste in my mouth," he said. "I think that was another selling point for me. I know how close we were to a Super Bowl this past year. And I want to get back there. I want to get to a Super Bowl and not (just) come so close. We have unfinished business."
