Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb hasn't displayed sure hands so far in training camp.
An all-purpose star, Cobb dropped 10 passes last season to lead the Packers, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy defended Cobb.
"Randall Cobb catches the football very well," McCarthy said. "He might drop a ball. I don't know if there's a concern. But it's something we spend a lot of time on. We need to catch the football better....I've never been part of a perimeter group that accepts anything less than being 100 percent, and that's what we're striving for. As far as Randall Cobb's evaluation of catching the football, he has very good hands."
Cobb has already dropped at least four passes since the start of training camp..
So, what's the issue.
"We'll just continue to make that the primary emphasis for us," receivers coach Edgar Bennett said. "Catching the football, how we're catching the football, attacking the ball, not allowing the ball to cross our eyes, looking the ball all the way in. But he had two today that he definitely shouldn't have. Sometimes, guys might lose that and just take their eyes off of it as far as getting ready to run.
"Generally, sometimes that's what happens. Instead of looking the ball all the way into the tuck, they get ready to see where the defender's coming from and not put the ball away and look the ball all the way in. We'll address what happens and we'll clean it up and we should be fine. It's not an issue. It won't be an issue."
