An era has finally come to an end in Green Bay.
Randall Cobb has been one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets at Lambeau Field ever since being drafted by the Packers out of Kentucky in 2011. However, Cobb entered the offseason as a free agent and has now signed with the Cowboys, meaning 2019 will be his first year in a jersey other than Green Bay's for the first time in his pro career.
I mean, if this picture doesn't make you feel emotion, just read the QB's Instagram caption and see if the tears aren't flowing by the time you're done:
It's incredible just how much the Packers
Thank You, Randall Cobb— IKE Packers (@IKE_Packers) March 19, 2019
Cobb will finish his tenure in Green Bay as the sixth-leading receiver in franchise history
• 8 seasons
• 6 playoff appearances
• 5 NFC North titles
• 517 receptions
• 6,120 receiving yards
• 47 touchdowns

Green Bay needed to shake things up, especially after going 6-9-1 last year and missing the playoffs for the second straight year.
Regardless, the team on the field in Green Bay won't look quite the same next year without Cobb, and while Packers fans are sure to miss the reliable wideout, no one is going to miss him more than his now-former quarterback.
