Cowboys bolster receiving corps with ex-Packer Randall Cobb

Cowboys bolster receiving corps with ex-Packer Randall Cobb

The hope is to cover what we perceive as the very best players in this spring's draft, as well as the Dallas Cowboys' positions of greatest need in the first three rounds, using about 200 snaps of the most recent college tape from each of the prospects.

Glazer posted on Twitter that the Dallas Cowboys have signed the Bay receiver.

Cobb, who spent his first eight National Football League seasons with the Green Bay Packers, agreed to terms on a one-year, $5 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys, according to multiple reports. NFL Network reports the deal is worth almost 17-million-dollars. The club also met with safety Clayton Geathers on Monday, with safety Eric Berry, defensive lineman Malik McDowell and defensive end Robert Quinn visiting on Tuesday.

A second-round pick in 2011, Cobb ranks sixth in franchise history with 470 receptions, and 11th in both receiving yards (5,524) and receiving touchdowns (41).

Another area Cobb could help the Cowboys is when the play breaks down.

The Cowboys and Miami Dolphins have had discussions regarding a trade for Quinn, according to multiple sources.

Randall Cobb #18 of the Green Bay Packers scores a touchdown in the third quarter during the NFC Wild Card game against the New York Giants at Lambeau Field on January 8, 2017 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Cobb became a free agent after the 2018 season. A Pro Bowl selection in 2014, injuries limited Cobb to just nine games in 2018 as he caught 38 passes for 383 yards and two touchdowns.
