Cowboys wide receiver Randall Cobb appeared on the Wilde & Tausch podcast Friday to discuss his life after Green Bay.
He talked about how calling himself a Dallas Cowboy has become more normal, what went down between him and the Packers back in March and what he expects from his friend Aaron Rodgers next season.
It turns out the decision to leave Wisconsin for the Lone Star state was rather easy for Cobb because the Packers never made the eight-year veteran an offer. “I know there was never an offer put on the table [from the Packers], before or after the offer from Dallas and a couple other teams,” Cobb said.
Regardless, Cobb didn’t imply he had hard feelings towards the Packers, but he did admit he gained some extra motivation from their decision to let him walk.
“It’s like the ex-girlfriend that broke up with you,” said Cobb. “When you see her five years later you hope you’re in a better situation than you were before — married, with kids, and you’re able to say, ‘Yeah, I did better without you.'”
So far, Cobb appears to be fitting in well in Dallas. ESPN’s Todd Archer went as far as to name him the Cowboys surprise of the offseason.
“The transition’s been great,” Cobb said. “Obviously, it was a little weird at first. When you’re somewhere for eight years and then you go to a different team, you kind of feel like the new kid at school — just trying to find your way around and not knowing exactly what to expect. But it’s been great so far. I’ve enjoyed it. I’m making strides with my new teammates, and I’m just trying to pick up the new offense and get ready for the season.”

The Cowboys will begin training camp in just under a month on July 27th. As for Cobb and his ex-girlfriend, he’ll get the chance to prove her wrong on Oct. 6 when the Packers visit Dallas.
