Cowboys overspend for name value with WR Randall Cobb

Headlining the list of available receivers is Cobb's former Packers teammate, Jordy Nelson, who was released by the Oakland Raiders last week.

The Dallas Cowboys are signing wide receiver Randall Cobb, and they appear to be overpaying for him.

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

Get it? Woody is a cowboy (sort of).

Despite young players like Davante Adams passing him in the pecking order, and his own struggles with injuries, Cobb gave the Packers an excellent return for a second-round pick and is still just 28.

Also, the Toy Story 4 trailer came out on Tuesday, so we must appreciate Cobb's pop-culture awareness. Cobb posted career highs in receptions (91), receiving yards (1,287) and touchdown catches (12) in 2014. Before a Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions, Cobb shared an emotional moment with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and after the game he acknowledged they were feeling the "uncertainty" of his situation, "not knowing what the future holds".

Dallas has brought in Cobb and re-signed receiver Tavon Austin to a one-year deal since slot receiver Cole Beasley left in free agency last week for a four-year deal with Buffalo.

One of my biggest disappointments as a Packers fan is that Cobb never won a Super Bowl ring in Green Bay.

The Cowboys and Miami Dolphins have had discussions regarding a trade for Quinn, according to multiple sources.
