The Dallas Cowboys created a hole on their roster when they released slot receiver Cole Beasley. They invited Randall Cobb to see if they are the right fit.
Randall Cobb is set to meet with Dallas in hopes to sign a contract and become a Cowboy. Cobb, an aging 28-year-old wide receiver with some injury concerns, has managed to miss out during the first wave of free agency.

Now in the second week of the madness, Cobb might feel desperate and take a salary cap friendly deal. In 2018, Cobb had a career low. “Boasting” only 383 yards and two touchdowns– the receiver has undoubtedly slowed down.
The Cowboys will most likely seem him work out and do medical tests on him themselves to truly gauge where Cobb is at physically. If he is anything close to what he has been in the past, it would be a perfect fit.
Cobb is primarily a slot receiver but has the ability to play outside. This versatility could provide new offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore, with some ways to move Amari Cooper around the formation.
If the Cowboys bring Cobb on to the team for around $5 million dollars per year, on a one year deal, this could set the offense up for big things in 2019.
Cooper, Michael Gallup, and Cobb could be a massive upgrade in a “Dak scheme-friendly” system.
