Cowboys overspend for name value with WR Randall Cobb

May JohnsonMar 21, 2019

Cobb signed with the Dallas Cowboys, while Matthews signed with the Los Angeles Rams.

Cobb, who turns 29 in August, was limited to just nine games in 2018 because of hamstring injuries and a late-season concussion. Cobb joins Allen Hurns and Tavon Austin as a slot player.

But from 2012-2017, he caught at last 60 passes five times, including a high of 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014 when he made the Pro Bowl.

Cobb is leaving Green Bay after eight seasons with the Packers, where he recorded 470 career catches for 5,524 yards and 41 touchdowns.

Cobb hit free agency after completing a four-year, $40 million contract he signed in 2015 with the Packers, who likely deemed him expendable after adding a number of wide receivers in recent drafts. Coming off a 75 reception, 1,005 yard, seven touchdown season, Cooper has made the Pro Bowl in three of his first four National Football League seasons.

Football world reacts to blockbuster Odell Beckham Jr.-Jabrill Peppers trade
Just days after we saw Antonio Brown get traded to the Oakland Raiders, another diva wide receiver with huge talent was traded. So why not kick back at James place while King James rests in L.A.? In the past week, the next step has turned into a rebuild.

Some of Beasley's production on underneath and over-the-middle routes could also be replaced by tight end Jason Witten, who returned to the Cowboys after spending last season as an analyst on ESPN's "Monday Night Football".

Former Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry had a visit with the Cowboys set up for Tuesday, per Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson, but he has apparently come and gone without a deal.

"We want to thank Clay for all that he has contributed to the Packers over the past 10 seasons".

While Cobb would be able to play in the slot as a receiver for the Cowboys if he signs, his value extends much further than just a slot receiver.
