Cowboys WR Randall Cobb speaks out on facing Packers for the first time
The Dallas Cowboys will be playing a big game when they face the Green Bay Packers in Week 5. However, the big matchup between Dak Prescott and Aaron Rodgers isn’t the only reason why this match is worth watching.
Randall Cobb is a current Dallas Cowboy who was a Green Bay Packer for eight years. He will surely have mixed feelings playing against the only other franchise he has played for his entire professional career.
He was probably anxious for this day to come ever since seeing the season schedule. However, he’s not showing any nerves to his former teammates or the media when it comes to the stresses of the job.
He told ESPN’s Todd Archer that he’ll be approaching this game with professionalism.
“It’s football, you know? It’s part of the business,” Cobb said. “Guys change teams all the time. It’s just how it goes. It’s part of the league, part of the business.”
He’s not wrong with his analysis. In 2018, the Packers used him less, only activating him for nine games. However, he still made the most of the targets going his way, getting 383 yards and two receiving touchdowns.
He’s been a reliable rotation option for the Cowboys this season. Despite only starting one game so far, he’s made 157 receiving yards on 14 receptions and a touchdown.
Whatever feelings he has about the Packers, it will most likely be expressed on the field. Of course, any former player would love nothing more than to beat his former team. That’s exactly what Cobb will be trying to do.
