Cowboys, WR Cobb agree to 1-year deal

ARLINGTON TX- JANUARY 15 Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb runs after a reception during the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers

Dallas has made some minor moves thus far in 2019 free agency, and will try to avoid once again being seen in the middle of the National Football League pack.

The Packers let him go in free agency after just 38 catches for 383 yards in 2018. But he's never been able to hit that form consistently since, and he's also only played in all 16 regular season games once since re-signing four years ago. As another receiver who operates out of the slot, Cobb could be a natural replacement for some of Beasley's routes.

If healthy, the Cowboys are likely hoping he could bring the type of numbers he had in 2014 when he brought in 91 catches for almost 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Cobb enjoyed his finest season with the Packers in 2014, when the 5-foot-10, 192-pound receiver posted career highs in catches (91), receiving yards (1,287) and receiving touchdowns (12) on the way to his first career Pro Bowl appearance.

Cobb visited with the Cowboys at The Star on Monday, taking a physical and meeting with coaches and staff. Cobb became a free agent after the 2018 season.

Bale and Isco give Zidane winning start against Celta
But Zidane was back to his usual winning ways immediately, Isco and Gareth Bale handing his men a comfortable win. There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding de Gea's current contract situation at Old Trafford.

Cobb was acquired in free agency by the Cowboys on Tuesday.

The Green Bay Packers appear to be going through a minor rebuild, while still hoping to compete for a title while Aaron Rodgers still has stuff left in the tank.

While dealing with hamstring woes and a concussion a year ago, Cobb played in just nine games, recording 38 receptions for 383 yards and two touchdowns.

This is a home run signing for the Cowboys. He should fit in as Dallas' slot receiver, replacing Cole Beasley. Having five solid, diverse receivers deep will be key next season and will be hard for defenses to plan for.
