WR Randall Cobb headed to Cowboys for 1-year, $5M deal

ARLINGTON TX- JANUARY 15 Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb runs after a reception during the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers

Randall Cobb gives the Cowboys another receiving weapon alongside Amari Cooper. More

It's the only 1,000-yard season of Cobb's career.

"For the past eight seasons, Randall was a terrific leader and great player for the Packers".

The tight end rotation the Cowboys started the season with were Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz, and Rico Gathers. The tight ends on the roster simply didn't have any National Football League experience.

The need for a proven slot receiver was massive for the Cowboys offense, as Beasley ran 87 percent of his routes from the slot over the past three seasons. Hurns is coming back from a gruesome ankle injury suffered in the wild-card win in January against the Seattle Seahawks, and Austin agreed to a one-year deal last week.

It was after that season when he signed a four-year, $40 million contract.

A second-round pick out of Kentucky in 2011, Cobb was a dynamic slot receiver and returner and a Pro Bowler for the Packers in 2014.

The title will also let you play as iconic characters from the franchise, such as Price and Ghost, if that floats your boat. The game features "multiple game modes" across a number of different maps, including popular ones like Nuketown and Crash.

Looks like the Cowboys found their Cole Beasley replacement.

Cobb was acquired in free agency by the Cowboys on Tuesday.

Two former members of the Green Bay Packers have inked deals with other teams.

Cobb spent the first eight years of his National Football League career with the Green Bay Packers, though he was limited to nine games last season because of a hamstring injury and a concussion.

Cobb missed six games in 2018 with the Packers due to nagging hamstring injury. Both are heading into the 2019 season hoping to have a healthy season, although it is unclear how much of a role they will have. Austin recently re-signed with Dallas on a one-year deal and is also a return man in addition to his receiving duties. Dallas has primed itself to have arguably its best receiving corps since current Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott took the team over in 2016.
