Houston Texans – Randall Cobb
Who would’ve thought that any teams best signing would be Randall Cobb?
Cobb was actually a good wide receiver with the Green Bay Packers in 2014, and at that time I would’ve bet that he could’ve been a number one guy on many other teams. But just one season after his 1,287 yard Pro Bowl year, his production was almost cut in half.
I’m afraid that Randall Cobb’s better days are behind him, and that he will never be quite what he was that one season with Aaron Rodgers.
The Texans signed Cobb to a 3 year $27 million deal. This is a bit more than I would’ve been willing to pay Randall Cobb and for a much longer stint too. Maybe the Texans believe that Cobb can be their saving grace after trading away DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals.

Giving the Texans an F for the Hopkins trade is a bit of an understatement. Bill O’Brien should have immediately been fired as soon as word of this trade got out into the public. But as Titans fans, we have to sit back and smile, right?
Who knows if a combination of Will Fuller, Kenny Stills, and Randall Cobb can make up for the Hopkins sized hole that Bill O’Brien has made. All I know is that if I was a Texans fan, I wouldn’t bank on it.
