Randall Cobb’s eighth season in the NFL kicks off on Sunday and, in turn, ole Goldeneyes made an appearance on “The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz” today, where, predictably, the conversation veered from football to his gorgeous eyes.
“Randall, that game against Georgia,” Stugotz started. “I’ll get to your eyes in just a second here, but that game against Georgia–”
“He does have beautiful eyes,” Le Batard interrupted. “He does have beautiful eyes.”
“They’re the best, aren’t they?”
“I could gaze into them — they’re like lagoons. I could gaze into them for an entire press conference.”
Same. Why were they talking about that game vs. Georgia? Cobb said that was the first time he realized he might be talented enough to play football for a living.
“I would say my freshman year against Georgia was the first time I thought, wow, maybe I can do this professionally. Playing against a lot of guys who get drafted from Georgia — they had a great defense that year — being able to make some plays against them, I thought, wow, maybe I really can do this.”
What about those rumors that popped up a week or so ago that the Packers were looking into trading Cobb? He admitted he was pretty nervous when he heard them — on his 28th birthday, nonetheless — but was assured they were false.
“There were definitely reports I was on the trading block, but [Wide Receivers Coach Luke Getsy] came to talk to me and shut those down immediately, to tell me those were false. That was definitely a great conversation and I heard those reports on my birthday, so that was a great 28th birthday, but it was all good. It’s all good.”
It better be. For the complete interview, watch below starting around the 18-minute mark:
