Texans’ Randall Cobb credits one former star teammate for massive impact on career
Longtime Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb will now begin suiting up for his third NFL franchise in as many seasons as he will soon take the field as a member of the Houston Texans. Prior to spending one season with the Dallas Cowboys last year, Cobb was a staple of the heralded Packers while infamously playing alongside another Green Bay legend in Jordy Nelson.
Cobb actually attributes a lot of his career success to Nelson, who lined up alongside him in Green Bay for many seasons.
“I would say, probably the player was Jordy Nelson when I was up in Green Bay, just looking at the way that he approached things,” Cobb recently told reporters on conference call from back on March 27, via USA TODAY Sports.
Cobb also made a point to mention the work ethic and general presence of former Packers wideouts Greg Jennings, Donald Driver and James Jones as well.
“Watching the way that they went about their business, watching the way that they communicated with each other, it was all about the team and how they can make each other better, because they know at the end of the day, the more reps that we had on the field, the better that would be overall,” Cobb added.
Cobb will now look to help the new-look Texans turn things around in a hurry as the team recently traded All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals. Luckily for Cobb, though, quarterback Deshaun Watson is still throwing passes in Houston.
