WR - GB
Week 2 Outlook
Randall Cobb caught his lone target for 32 yards in the Packers' Week 1 loss to the Saints.
Cobb also ran once for a gain of one. Green Bay simply couldn't get anything going in this one. A Week 2 matchup with the Lions should get the offense back on the right track.
Randall Cobb restructured his deal after being traded to the Packers, converting $4.075M of his $5.25M salary into a signing bonus. That drops his cap number for 2021 down to $2,687,254, as a void year was added in 2023.
After being traded to Green Bay from Houston, in what seemed like a concession for Aaron Rodgers, Cobb is already showing his flexibility and desire to help the Packers front office by restructuring his deal. The veteran receiver could be a solid flex play due to his chemistry with Rodgers, but also offers huge upside if anything were to happen to Davante Adams.
Adam Shefter of ESPN reports that the Houston Texans have traded WR Randall Cobb to the Green Bay Packers.
Cobb also announced it on his Twitter page. Cobb has been a favorite of Aaron Rodger's and is a big reason why Rodgers is returning. He played for the Packers from 2011-2018 and was a favorite target of Rodgers. Cobb's best season came in 2014 with Rodgers when he caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Packers drafted Amari Rodgers and still have Allen Lazard and Marques Valdes-Scantling behind Davante Adams on the roster, but Cobb should be able to carve out a role in the offense. He's a late round dart throw due to the touchdown upside in the Packers offense.
Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers are close to a trade that would send WR Randall Cobb back to Green Bay.
It had been rumored that Cobb could be back to Green Bay and now it's seemingly almost a reality. The details of the trade are yet to be known but the expectation is that Cobb will soon be reunited with his former QB Aaron Rodgers, who has already returned to the team. The Packers are seemingly making one last push to appease Rodgers and provide him with weapons as his long-term championship window in Green Bay could be limited. Cobb would likely be the number two WR for the Packers opposite Davante Adams and could have solid fantasy upside in late rounds as a slot option. In 2020, Cobb played 10 games for the Texans and had 38 catches for 441 yards and three touchdowns.
Trey Wingo reports Rodgers coming back to GB hinges on the team trading for former teammate Randall Cobb. If Cobb is in Green Bay it looks like Rodgers will be, too.
Cobb injured his toe in Week 11 last season and was placed on season ending injured reserve. The 30-year-old WR is far removed from his Pro Bowl season with Rodgers in 2014, but could still act as a viable option for the Packers, who have struggled to find a WR2. He is under contract with Houston for the next two seasons after signing a three-year, $27 million deal last offseason. There are no reports regarding what it would take for them to part ways, but if this trade happens then it proves the Packers are willing to do anything to keep their superstar QB with the team for at least one more run.
