Randall Cobb, Cowboys agree to deal bringing former Packers WR to Dallas

Randall Cobb, Cowboys agree to deal bringing former Packers WR to Dallas

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 fills a need after the Cowboys lost slot receiver Cole Beasley in free agency to the Buffalo Bills last week on a four-year, $29 million deal that included $14.4 million in guaranteed money. He previously signed a four-year rookie deal and a four-year, $40 million deal after a Pro Bowl season in 2014.

Cobb joins wide receiver Tavon Austin and tight end Jason Witten as the newest offensive additions to the team.

Cobb confirmed the news himself on Twitter, posting a gif of a certain cowboy from Toy Story. As the 2018 season wore on, Cobb seemed resigned to the fact he'd be leaving the Packers after the year.

50% Americans believe the Mueller probe is a 'witch hunt'
Wow! A Suffolk/USA Today Poll, just out, states, "50% of Americans AGREE that Robert Mueller's investigation is a Witch Hunt". Surveys have consistently shown that a strong majority of Americans think President Donald Trump should stop tweeting .

The Cowboys have added a wide receiver.

Headlining the list of available receivers is Cobb's former Packers teammate, Jordy Nelson, who was released by the Oakland Raiders last week. "When he's out there, he's a tough guy to cover".

Without an abundance of salary cap space to work with, the Cowboys have been relatively quiet in free agency, but the team was reported Tuesday to have hosted a couple of the bigger names available: pass-rusher Robert Quinn and safety Eric Berry. And now Cobb is a Cowboy.

He finishes sixth in Packers history in catches and 11th in receiving yards and touchdowns.
