Randall Cobb signs three-year deal with Houston Texans

Randall Cobb will suit up for a new team, his third, in his tenth season in the National Football League. The former Kentucky Wildcat will join the Houston Texans on a three-year deal worth $27 million, a nice payday for the veteran wide receiver who saw a resurgence in his statistics last season as a Dallas Cowboy.

The Cowboys had hoped to keep Cobb now that one of his biggest fans, former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, is the head coach in Dallas. But Monday’s re-signing of Amari Cooper took up $100 million, thus allowing the Texans to swoop in and steal Cobb away from America’s team.

Houston had just given up its superstar wide receiver, Deandre Hopkins, to the Arizona Cardinals in a highly-scrutinized trade earlier in the day. The Texans sent the All-Pro wide out to Arizona and got little in return, which has led some Texans fans to direct their frustration toward Cobb online. (Not his fault.)

I’m upset that Cobb is going to a team I hate, but happy he’s getting paid. I will only root for him 363 days out of the year now.

Titan up, Randall.
