Texans Welcome Cowboys WR Randall Cobb!
A little after the Dallas Cowboys agreed to a deal with their top receiver Amari Cooper, they lost wide receiver Randall Cobb. Read on…
CelebNSports247.com reports that SportsDay’s Calvin Watkins dropped the news on Monday night that Cowboys receiver Randall Cobb has agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with the Houston Texans.
Though, NFL Network’s James Jones first reported the news Randall Cobb has officially joined the Texans.
The news of Cobb joining the Texans comes on the same day Houston traded away star receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals for running back David Johnson.
Randall Cobb going to Houston on a three-year deal. Not mad at him.

Talk about change ups. Hopefully its for the better with the team and the players.
Dallas News reports:
New Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy coached Cobb for eight years with the Green Bay Packers. McCarthy expressed last month that he was comfortable with the idea of reuniting with the 29-year-old.
McCarthy said at the NFL combine:
The goal is to have both of those guys back. Amari, having a chance to get through all the tape, he did a lot of great things, and it really looks like he’s in sync with [quarterback] Dak [Prescott]. And I would even say Randall more so. I was very impressed with Randall last year.
He was banged up a couple of years prior to that, but I thought he had a heck of a season last year in Dallas. I was very impressed with his video.
Last March, Cobb signed a one-year deal worth $5 million with the Cowboys and flourished in Dallas, posting 55 catches for 828 yards and three touchdowns. The yardage total was his highest since 2014 when posting career highs of 91 receptions, 1,287 yards and 12 scores.
