Dallas Cowboys: WR Randall Cobb joins Cowboys on 1-year deal

The wide receivers on the depth chart heading into last season included Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns, Terrance Williams, Michael Gallup, and Tavon Austin.

A second-round pick in 2011, Cobb ranks sixth in franchise history with 470 receptions, and 11th in both receiving yards (5,524) and receiving touchdowns (41).

With most of the major free agent safeties already signed and several teams still holding plenty of cap space, Berry could have plenty of other visits planned.

It will take some getting used to for Aaron Rodgers when he reports to training camp without longtime Packers receiver Randall Cobb at a nearby locker.

The tight end rotation the Cowboys started the season with were Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz, and Rico Gathers. He was given that deal after reaching career highs in 2014 with 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns, and his numbers have dropped sharply since. The tight ends on the roster simply didn't have any National Football League experience.

Fed signals year-long rate pause
It also said it will stop shrinking its bond portfolio in September, a step that should help hold down long-term interest rates. Fed policymakers expect the nation's unemployment rate, now at 3.8 percent , to decline a tick to 3.7 percent by year-end.

That is more than 47 percent of Americans who disagree, according to the new poll, conducted by USA Today/Suffolk University Poll. This is nearly a solid four points higher than the 46.8 percent that said "no".

After the credits rolled, a photo of Mike appeared on the screen alongside the words "In memory of Mike Thalassitis 1993-2019". Mike you are going to be sorely sorely missed. "This didn't need to happen". "Rest in peace Mike...x", she added.

Cobb confirmed the news himself on Twitter, posting a gif of a certain cowboy from Toy Story.

Cooper will be the clear number one receiver for Dallas. The 28-year-old posted 38 catches for 383 yards and two touchdowns in nine games last year. Further, the veteran playmaker has repeatedly proven his consistency with only one drop on 71 third-down targets and has moved the chains on 35 different occasions on third downs in that three-year span. With an entire year of experience, he is set to be even better in the upcoming season as the Cowboys number two option.

Cobb had been mentioned as a potential target for the receiver-needy Patriots, who have added just two low-level wideouts (Bruce Ellington and Maurice Harris) since National Football League free agency began last week.

Cobb had spent all eight of his National Football League seasons with the Packers.

This is a home run signing for the Cowboys. The Packers played the opener that year as Super Bowl champs, meaning Cobb had just missed out on a championship.
