Randall Cobb says he signed with Cowboys ‘to win a championship’

The Dallas Cowboys signed former Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb this past offseason, and on Tuesday he divulged why he came to Dallas.

It’s all about winning a Super Bowl.

“I’m here to win a championship. I’m here to provide everything I can for this team. I thought it was a great fit. I’ve played a lot of ball. I’ve been on some good teams, but I don’t have a ring. At the end of the day, that’s what this game is about,” Cobb said, per Jon Machota of SportsDay.

It’s debatable that Cobb has a better chance of winning a Super Bowl in Dallas than he did in Green Bay. However, the truth of the matter is that his time with the Packers was over following the 2018 season.

At the age of 28, Cobb may have plenty of tread left on his tires. He will likely be a heavily utilized weapon in the slot for Dallas, which lost Cole Beasley to the Buffalo Bills in free agency.

Yet the entire offense will still revolve around Ezekiel Elliott, who is away from the team this summer amid a contract dispute with the ‘Boys. If Elliott lands his coveted long-term deal, then Dallas may actually have what it takes to grant Cobb his wish. But based on recent comments made by Jerry Jones, things appear to be going the wrong way on that front.
