Cobb has spent his first eight years with the Green Bay Packers where he has notched 672 receptions for 5,524 receiving yards and 41 touchdowns over that span. This has included him posting north of 1,000 receiving yards once while surpassing more than 800 receiving yards three times in his career.
The 28-year-old had his best campaign in 2014 where he set career-best numbers across the board with 91 receptions for 1,287 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Since then, he has struggled to stay healthy as he had dealt with nagging injuries.
He is coming off one of his least productive campaigns as he has had 38 catches for 383 receiving yards and two touchdowns in nine games played, which are the lowest totals of his career since his rookie year. Cobb is also set to fill a major need on the roster for the Cowboys after the departure of Cole Beasley on a four-year, $29 million deal with $14.4 million in guaranteed money with the Buffalo Bills.
