The New York Jets have agreed to sign Randall Cobb, giving Aaron Rodgers another familiar face

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the New York Jets have agreed to sign former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb.

Randall Cobb has long been one of Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets. The two have played 10 seasons together. Cobb has caught an astounding 534 passes from Rodgers in his career, second-most behind only Davante Adams (687).

Of course, the downside to the move is that Randall Cobb may just not have much left in the tank. Cobb produced only 396 yards per season over the last two years in Green Bay.

If Cobb is coming on to be a locker room guy and a depth wide receiver, then this move makes a ton of sense. He can help the young receivers learn the offense and build a strong culture.

If on the other hand, Cobb has been brought in to be the team’s primary slot receiver, things could get dicey. As things currently stand, that’s unlikely. But if the Jets end up moving on from Corey Davis, which would push Allen Lazard out wide, that would change things.

For now, though, let’s look at this for what it is. The Jets brought in one of Aaron Rodgers’ best friends and long-time teammates to be a depth WR. Until proven otherwise, Cobb is a Jet to ease the transition of both Rodgers to New York and the offense into Nathaniel Hackett’s system.
