Cowboys, Randall Cobb agree to deal

The Cowboys have added another target for Dak Prescott.

Veteran receiver Randall Cobb has agreed to a one-year deal with Dallas, Jay Glazer reports.

Cobb could be a replacement for receiver Cole Beasley, who departed in free agency.

The 28-year-old Cobb struggled through a difficult season last year, missing seven games and catching just 38 passes for 383 yards and two touchdowns. He joins a Cowboys team where Amari Cooper will be the undisputed No. 1 receiver with a full offseason in the Cowboys’ offense, and Jason Witten is coming back as well. It could be a good situation for Cobb to have a bounce-back season.

  1. Pure class is Randall Cobb.👏

    He will be missed!

  2. The Cowboys are really falling apart. They are rapidly heading back into 6-10 territory. First, the Cowboys sign a has-been failed t.v. announcer to play tight end. Then they court Eric Berry, practically a cripple at this point, but he sensibly recognizes that this team is going down the tubes and walks away. And now the Cowboys sign a receiver more brittle than fine China. It pains me to say this but Jerry Jones may well be going senile based upon these off-season moves.

  3. Wow, the Cowboys might be fun to watch again. I just wish they’d have some better playcalling.

  4. Best of luck Randall….you were a great Packer. Congrats Cowboys….if he can get his legs back, he can definitely help you…and quality addition to the locker room alone.~

  5. Cobb is high risk with his recent injuries, but at least he can catch the 5 yard to 15 yard plays and has better speed than Cole, and compared to 37 year old Witten with no speed or stone hands Cooper Cobb becomes their best receiver.

  6. This has always been a forgone conclusion, but still hits with a thud in it’s finality.

    Randall Cobb is a very classy player, especially known for some big, clutch catches, and dutifully played his heart out for 8 strong years.
    Injuries handicapped him throughout his tour here, never really allowing him to reach his full potential, but he’s been appreciated by Packer fans everywhere.

    I’m a firm believer that change can do wonders for some players.
    The Cowboys are getting a receiver who’s always been better suited in the slot and will provide Prescott with a decent target as long as he can remain healthy.

  7. Now THIS IS HOW YOU BUILD A TEAM! Nothing Blockbuster in FA. Stay with the modest depth signings. Keep hitting on draft picks. Dallas has been AWESOME at it! This deal benefits both Cobb and Cowboys equally. Cobb is young and can still get a nice contract somewhere once he proves he can stay healthy. Cobb is LEGIT when healthy! Dallas gets a player with tremendous upside at low risk.

    Without a doubt Dallas will win the division. This is why.

    1.) Cowboys are the most balanced team especially with Cobb. Dallas has their stuff together, the rest of the NFC East does not!

    2.) Dallas will build on a solid previous season. I feared Foles more then Wentz. Wentz is damaged goods. You can squeeze a little more decent play time out of him. He is going to need a knee brace for the rest of his career. ( Most of you Eagles fans mocked Romo’s injuries. Karma hurts right? )

    3.) There’s no chemistry in Washington.

    4.) Giants are clearly in rebuilding mode. Dallas DOES have an answer for Barkley.

  8. Barneys fans, who thought Cobb was a washed-up bum when he played with Green Bay, now cry crocodile tears bemoaning his loss as a blow to the team. He had some good years with GB, but it was time for a fresh start for all concerned. A couple people nailed this already. Providing the pay isn’t above the one-year prove-it deal level, it’s a good risk for Dallas. Injuries were Cobb’s problem in Green Bay. He COULD bounce back, and if he does, hes a good player. Odds are he won’t, but for one year, at reasonable pay, I’d take that chance.

  9. This guy always scared me as an opposing fan of the Packers — when he was healthy.

  10. The Cowboys will be lucky to get 8 games out of Witten and Cobb combined. The NFC East next year looks like this: Skins, Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants. As the Giants don’t even count, worth noting that Case Keenum has gone much deeper in the playoffs than Wentz or Prescott. The basic tragetory of the NFC East has been set and Cobb ain’t gonna alter it.

  11. So long Randall. Wish you had a ring. Best of luck to a good man.

    Veey involved in the community. Going to miss this guy.

  12. If they want him to be a 2 or 3 and he can stay healthy he will be a good addition, id their number 1 goes down it taxes him a lot as seen when Jordy was injured. He also seems to be on the injury report alot

  13. Randall Cobb is one tough guy. He gave everything he had every play, every season. I guess time moves on. As a Packers fan, I wish him well and I’ll miss him in Green Bay.

  14. This is simply delicious. The Cowboys play the Packers in Dallas this year. Cobb torches the secondary for the game winning TD with no time left on the clock!! As I said, simply delicious!!

  15. For real??? Dallas could sign anybody and all of their fans will scream….OMG!!! What a great signing!!!!….child please!!!! Randall Cobb does not strike fear in anybodys heart so please stop with the madness!!!!

  16. Only 28. I remember on Sunday night his rookie year Al Michael’s pointed out that he was the first player born in the 90’s to play in the NFL. I hope he rebounds.

    So you want to win a close game in crunch time like GB has done to Dallas over the last several seasons

  19. Good slot but definitely not a #2 Wr,also needs to stay healthy..but with 3 developing WRs behind Davante Adams it’s better to see what they can become then sitting on the ok known qaunity

    Yeah, the Skins (with what QB, RB, and what WR not to mention what D) are going to win the division? Keenum was exposed in Denver (he had all of one good year in his career), and will be even worse in Washington. Washington will again be the bottom feeders, and will have to battle it out with the Giants for the basement in the NFC East (a spot Washington is VERY familiar with).

    Even with 8 games out of Witten and Cobb combined, the Cowboys STILL spank the Redskins twice due to the rest of their weapons. And btw, it is “trajectory”, not tragetory, Swifty.

  21. Great guy with plenty of heart and fire, but all his injuries have put about ten additional years on his body and he doesn’t often get separation any more. I’m glad he got signed and wish him the best.

  22. With so many receivers on the roster now, good chance the Cowboys won’t be drafting one in the draft. There’s one wildcard for the Cowboys who was injured who they drafted last year, Cedric Wilson, who may be a big surprise.

  23. JERRYSGLASSESCLEANER, I can’t say I agree with your post at all. Yes Dallas won the division last season but had almost everything go their way and the eagles STILL made it just as far as Dallas did. At one point philly had 13 players injured and ended the season with 9 starters out. Not just 9 players, 9 starters, while Dallas remained relatively healthy. Good luck with that next year with a first place schedule. Even when Dallas beat philly they still had to have things go their way. In the 2nd matchup in the OT game, dak had a career game, cooper had his best game and even your kicker had a career long fg and Dallas STILL had to get help from the refs with that bogus fumble/non fumble and the bogus PI on goedert td and even had to get a lucky bounce of douglas’ hand on the tipped ball to end the game. And even with all that going on last year, eagles showed they had more fight and a lot of the young guys got some good experience. At one point the eagles had 6 DBs that were out. Unless the eagles lose about half their squad again, I don’t see Dallas winning the division. Even the Redskins were up on you guys and beat your team in the first meeting until they got hit by injuries too.

  24. bird2urbrother, excuses much? Wow bro Dig Deep for EXCUSES. M U C H …… LMAO! Yet we played WITHOUT STARTERS, all pro Witten, all pro Dez, and All Pro FREDDY! Also missing Irving a Beast at dt/de as well as all pro Sean Lee. Just to name a Few. So tell us again how bad you S U C ! bro.

  26. Now he has a quarterback who will even give him his personal phone number, unlike Rodgers.

  27. Caliz, no excuses, just facts and reasons why I think eagles will win division. Witten hasn’t been all pro in years and Sean Lee is a backup. And only naming one solid starter that was injured is proof that Dallas was RELATIVELY healthy like i said. I’ll tell you this though. If Wentz played a career game and Alshon and our kicker also had their best game ever, it wouldn’t take overtime to beat the cowboys. And I don’t need oddsmakers to convince me that I think eagles win the division, but just to you people that do, eagles ARE the favorite to win the NFC east. And it’s funny to me how I came on here to talk football and didn’t talk down on your team but here you are with childish insults. Right on bro, your a baaaad man.

  28. @bird2urmother help from the refs? Have things go their way? If that’s what it takes to win care to talk about the “incomplete pass” in the Philly-Chicago game or about Philly “having things go their way” when the Bears kicker missed that game winning FG try?

  29. Cobb has been a great professional all the way around. He plays the game right, talks about his team the right way, and by all accounts, is a decent man.

    That said, his biggest issue over the past couple years is being able to stay on the field. If he can stay healthy, he will help Dak and will help the cowboys win games.

  30. Cboys, so a tipped ball right to your wr and two bad calls favoring your team isn’t considered “going your way”? Why are you bothered by what I said? Believe it or not, teams do have things go their way. My team included. Lol. And by the way that bears fg was tipped by an eagle player and went in the books as a blocked fg.

    Really? Give it a rest, it’s just getting dumb.

    Rodgers and Cobb were quite close in their time together in Green Bay, as evidenced by their tearful pregame hug, Week 17 last season.
    They also frequently vacationed together and Aaron was even a groomsman in Randall’s wedding two years ago.
    This narrative of Rodgers being some kind of a pariah in the locker room has been disproven time and time again.
    It’s just wishful thinking on the part of some very small minds.

    As I’ve said before, if you just want to irrationally hate on the guy, go ahead and hate, knock yourself out, but please come up with a more logical reason.
    Because you’re all beginning to sound pretty moronic about now.

    Bwwaaaahahaha!!!!

  34. I believe Cobb will be the choice to play slot receiver for the ‘Boys. His health is going to be the a big factor in how well he plays. Cooper and Gallup will be the starting WR.

  35. Wishing Randall all the best. He will be missed. Class guy. Great player when healthy. Good luck to you Randall.

  36. Here you go Dak……the Keys to the Maserati. No excuses….Let’s see if you are a Franchise Quarterback or just someone that can win a playoff game now and then.

  37. Cowboys relying on the dymanic WR duo of Austin and Cobb. They will take turns limping off the field.
