Randall Cobb ‘excited’ to be with the Dallas Cowboys

Randall Cobb

The Dallas Cowboys made a move at the wide receiver position this week by adding Green Bay Packers veteran Randall Cobb. Cobb expressed his excitement to be with the organization on Friday.

The Cowboys addressed their need for a pass catcher last season by giving up a first-round draft pick for former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper. The trade drastically turned the team around, so it’s fair to assume adding Cobb will help that much more.

Cobb spent eight seasons with the Packers and now will join an offense headlined by two young stars in quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys lost Cole Beasley to free agency but regained veteran tight end Jason Witten, who ended his retirement to join the franchise.

The Cowboys have a lot to be excited about as they have a solid, up and coming defense as well as an offense that started clicking big time in the second half of the 2018 season. If the Cowboys hope to keep that momentum going, they did a great job in reaching a deal Cobb. The former Packers wideout brings a lot to the table: a veteran presence, a great set of hands, and reliability.

Cobb has every reason to be excited to play with a team that will likely feature him in their offense often. Prescott gains a fantastic target in the offense and will be able to look for him on short yardage, where Cobb thrives. The 2019 season could bring forth big things for the Cowboys offense.
