The Cowboys have had a much more active offseason than they have in previous years, even trading for a veteran pass rusher in Robert Quinn. One of their more marquee signings in terms of name-value, however, was that of wide receiver Randall Cobb.
The former Green Bay Packers wide out seems to fit exactly what Dallas was looking for after 2018. A versatile slot receiver who can be used in jet packages as well, Cobb could potentially wear a lot of hats for a Cowboys offense that has been starved for explosion as of late.
Initially, Cobb spoke to the difficulty of finding his way within a new organization. But after a few weeks as a Cowboy, both he and head coach Jason Garrett are singing a much different tune. A tune of comfort, and expectations of winning.
Randall Cobb spoke to the Dallas media earlier this week, calling the situation in Dallas “perfect” for himself. Of course, many fans agree, as indicated by the overall excitement which surrounded his arrival in Dallas.
Jason Garrett spoke more to Cobb’s increased fit with the Cowboys, highlighting his football IQ and acumen when speaking to DallasCowboys.com.
“You ask him (about his practice) and he lists off his five mistakes that he made. To him that was a terrible day of practice. But he comes back to get it corrected each day. He’s got a great spirit about him. He’s a real pro.” – Jason Garrett on Randall Cobb, courtesy DallasCowboys.com.
Garrett is a football-guy through and through, and has always valued players who have football savvy minds. Randall Cobb has earned the respect and trust of some of the smartest players in all of football, including his former quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Now that he is getting comfortable within the Cowboys system, and is understanding his role better by the day, he should have Dak Prescott’s on-field trust in no time. And if Cobb is trusted by Jason Garrett, Kellen Moore, and Dak Prescott, he should see a lot of opportunities to make plays on Sundays.
