Packers Should Not Rule Out Potential Reunion With Randall Cobb This Offseason

Randall Cobb spent this past season as a member of the Dallas Cowboys after spending eight years with the Green Bay Packers. Cobb had a solid year for the Cowboys, though the team finished 8-8 and missed out on the playoffs. After signing just a one-year deal, Cobb is right back to being a free agent.

Now that he needs a new team, the playmaker could do a whole lot worse than engineering a reunion with his former Packers. And he might just be exactly what the team needs.

Cobb was a star with the Packers, and he'd be a proper fit with the team that gave him his start. The Packers have a need at the slot position, after all.

Additionally, if the team drafts a receiver, Cobb would be the right kind of guy to teach the tenderfoot the ropes of the NFL.

Packer fans, look alive! Cobb will have options on the open market, and it may be that Green Bay isn't keen to open up the door for his return -- but in case they do, this could be an intriguing match for 2020.
