Cowboys signing former Packers WR Randall Cobb to one-year deal
The Dallas Cowboys have done their best to provide quarterback Dak Prescott with as many weapons as possible moving forward. It appears former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb can now be added to the mix.
The Packers finally parted ways with Cobb this offseason after years of speculation. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, he has agreed to a one-year deal with Dallas:
Cowboys are giving former Packers’ WR Randall Cobb a one-year, $5 million deal, per source.
This is certainly an intriguing move by the Cowboys. They have made quite the investment in their receiving corps starting with the acquisition of Amari Cooper. Meanwhile, Michael Gallup, Tavon Austin, and Allen Hurns are also looking to establish themselves in Dallas. The front office has even gone so far as to bring tight end Jason Witten out of retirement. They are hoping that their new addition can become another integral piece of the offense.
There is no question that Cobb has struggled to produce at a consistent level in recent years. He is coming off perhaps his worst season yet after registering just 383 yards on 38 receptions after missing seven games due to a hamstring injury. The veteran will have his work cut out trying to get acquainted with a new offense this offseason.
It seems the Cowboys are hoping Cobb can fill the void left in the slot by wide receiver Cole Beasley. Working from the inside has been his area of expertise throughout his career. Cobb will have a solid chance at a bounce-back season if he can manage to stay healthy.
