The Dallas Cowboys have struggled to find a playmaking wide receiver since they had Dez Bryant in his prime. Fairly or not, some of the blame has gotten placed on quarterback Dak Prescott. Although adding Amari Cooper last season via trade did a lot to alleviate those concerns. Now they’ll pair Randall Cobb next to Cooper.

Still, the Cowboys have one of the league’s premier running games with Ezekiel Elliott and a top-notch offensive line. (Even though that offensive line had a relative down year last year due to several injuries.)
Nonetheless, Dallas is on a mission to try and assemble a better passing game. They lost receiver Cole Beasley in free agency to Buffalo. But tight end Jason Witten ended his retirement after one year to come back. And now they have the 28-year-old former Packers receiver aboard on a one-year, $5 million contract.
In eight seasons with Green Bay, Cobb has 470 catches good for 5,524 yards and 41 receiving touchdowns. He also accumulated 352 yards on the ground off of 59 carries. Further, he’s served as the Packers’ kick and punt returner at times during his tenure. He’s had three total returns that went for touchdowns.

Cobb was taken in the second round out of Kentucky by the Packers during the 2011 NFL Draft.
