The Ringer listed eight NFL veterans who need to bounce back in 2019. Randall Cobb is one of them.
After eight seasons with Green Bay, Cobb signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
Cobb is the youngest NFL player named at 28 years old and has a lot left to prove.
Green Bay let the eight-year vet walk in free agency after 38 catches, 383 yards, and two touchdowns in nine games last year—a season marred by concussion and hamstring injuries. Cobb’s performance dwindled even when he was on the field, as he notched career lows in receptions per game (4.2), yards per game (42.6), and yards per target (6.3) while watching his catch rate drop to 62.3 percent—second worst of his career.
With Dallas’ loss of Cole Beasley in free agency and the reported already strong chemistry between Cobb and quarterback Dak Prescott, Cobb can make a splash in Dallas.
With the team’s receiver depth chart muddled after clear-cut no. 1 Amari Cooper, the Cowboys could lean hard on a veteran player like Cobb to master the necessary nuances of the passing game and provide Prescott with a security blanket and playmaker over the middle.
