Cowboys Reportedly Sign Former Packers Star WR Randall Cobb

It's going to be a change of scenery for now-former Packers receiver Randall Cobb.

The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free-agent receiver Randall Cobb.

Get it? Woody is a cowboy (sort of).

In signing Cobb, the Cowboys acquire a player who performed well against them, going 4-1 vs. Dallas in the regular season and playoffs combined. He previously signed a four-year rookie deal and a four-year, $40 million deal after a Pro Bowl season in 2014. The end of the Cobb-Aaron Rodgers connection will take some getting used to, but at least the tweet was great.

A 4-year-old girl also remains in a critical condition at a hospital in Auckland after being transferred there on Saturday. A gun club in the northern town of Kaitaia burned down early on Tuesday and police were treating the blaze as suspicious.

Cobb will help the Cowboys replace slot receiver Cole Beasley, who signed a four-year, $29 million deal with the Buffalo Bills during the first week of free agency.

The Cowboys' receiver corps include Amari Cooper, Allen Hurns, Michael Gallup and Tavon Austin, in addition to Cobb. So it's an understandable move by general manager Brian Gutekunst not to re-sign Cobb, but the same was true when Jordy Nelson was released previous year.

Cobb has shown that he can also play on the outside and as a running back in certain packages. The 2011 second-round pick out of Kentucky has registered 470 catches, 5,524 receiving yards and 41 touchdowns on 675 targets in his career, but he only posted 383 receiving yards last season after missing seven games with a hamstring injury. Cobb just doesn't seem to be worth the big money.
