Randall Cobb Signs with Cowboys

After 8 seasons as wide-receiver for the Green Bay Packers, Randall Cobb signed as an unrestricted free agent

Earlier this week, Randall Cobb posted an emotional Instagram photo announcing his departure to his followers. In the post, he reflected on some memories he and the team shared, as well as thanked his now former coaches and teammates.

He finished out the post by saying that “This was inevitable. All good things must come to an end. But this isn’t the end of the story. Just the end of this chapter” and shortly after posted a picture of him at the signing with the caption “It’s GO Time! #CowboyNation.”

Cobb’s last season with the Packers was a tough one. He ended up with his worst statistical NFL year because his hamstring and concussion issues limited him to a mere 9 games.

He addressed these concerns by saying “I’m excited to get back out there and prove myself. It definitely was a tough year for me last year. But that’s all in the past now, and I’m ready for a fresh start. I’m excited to be here, to get rolling, and get to work, and bring a championship back to Dallas.”

2018 aside, there’s no denying that Cobb is bringing plenty to the team. Cobb ranks sixth in franchise history with 470 receptions, and 11th in both receiving yards (5,524) and receiving touchdowns (41). Then there’s Cobb’s 2014 season with career highs in catches (91), receiving yards (1,287), and receiving touchdowns (12) and his first Pro Bowl appearance.

Cobb ends his time with the Packers as one of five players in franchise history to register more than 60 receptions in four consecutive seasons (2014-17).

While Randall Cobb received many farewell tweets and messages from fans, an especially bittersweet goodbye was said by teammate Aaron Rodgers.

He posted a few pics of the two together, captioned by an emotional quote from The Shawshank Redemption that best sums up how we all feel:
