He started the first 12 games for the Green Bay Packers this season before suffering an injury. Randall Cobb, who spent the 2019 season with the Dallas Cowboys and the 2020 season with the Houston Texans, was once again available for Aaron Rodgers.
Cobb was the team’s fifth-leading receiver with 28 receptions for 375 yards and five touchdowns. After Davante Adams (11) and Allen Lazard (11), those were the team’s third-most aerial touchdowns (8). When he was available, the 11-year pro came up with a number of crucial third-down catches.
That, of course, hasn’t been the case for the past two months. Cobb tore a core muscle in the team’s Week 13 triumph over the visiting Los Angeles Rams. Cobb’s return to the franchise was unquestionably a plus, despite the team’s winning ways.
The Packers are pleased with the Randall Cobb news.
In early December, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett remarked, “It was just a bonus to have that connection come back and be a leader in that room and offer us a lot.” “Those men will have to step up, and they have already done so.” They’ve already demonstrated it. With Randall in the room, I believe they’ve improved.”
Cobb, on the other hand, appears to be ready to play this Saturday evening when Rodgers and the Packers take on the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Divisional Playoffs.
Cobb did not catch a pass and was only targeted once in the team’s regular-season meeting in Week 3 at San Francisco, which ended in a 30-28 Packers victory.
Cobb will make his first appearance in an NFL postseason game since 2016, when he was in his sixth season with the Packers. In 11 playoff appearances with the team, the veteran wideout has a total of 47 receptions for 596 yards and five touchdowns.
