Tuesday afternoon news broke that the Dallas Cowboys will be signing former Packers wide receiver to a 1-year, $5 million deal.
This is the kind of signing the Cowboys needed for their offense that under-performed greatly in 2018. The Cowboys needed to replace Cole Beasley and they got a similar aged player with more versatility, better career stats, and a much smaller contract in Randall Cobb.
Cobb has been plagued with injuries as of late in Green Bay and consistently will miss a game here and there, but he has the potential to wreak havoc on opposing defenses in 2019 if he can stay healthy. The entire Dallas receiving corp is very versatile now with Randall Cobb, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Allen Hurns, and Tavon Austin lined up outside. The Dallas offense has the potential be extremely dangerous in 2019 under first-year offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore. The addition of Cobb could also open up the run game more and with the all-world running back the Cowboys possess in Ezekiel Elliott that could lead to some great things.
This is a move the Cowboys fanbase has long awaited this offseason and one the Dallas offense needed to make. Signing Cobb could help propel the already playoff level team to elite status next season.
