1. Randall Cobb, WR
The Cowboys’ wide receiver corps was loaded in 2019 as they were trying to put a frustrating 8-8 campaign behind them. What put that position over the top was the signing of Randall Cobb, who had spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Green Bay Packers.
Cobb was coming off an injury-plagued campaign and took a one-year deal worth just $5 million. He then showed that he was healthy and could still contribute.
In 15 games, he had 55 receptions for 828 yards with three touchdowns as the No. 3 wide receiver alongside Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup.
It seemed as though the hiring of Mike McCarthy meant the chances of Cobb returning in 2020 would be high but that wasn’t the case as the Houston Texans swooped in and signed him to a three-year deal worth $27 million.
Cobb played just one year in Houston before being traded back to Green Bay. He has yet to come close to the production we saw in 2018 with Dallas and he’s not likely to reach it again now that he’s set to turn 33 this summer.
Even so, Cobb is a savvy veteran that understands what he’s supposed to do on each and every route he runs. He would be a safety valve in the slot and the icing on the cake is the relationship he has with McCarthy.
The two worked together for eight years, so it would help the Dallas head coach as he transitions to play-caller this season.
