The Packers and Texans are discussing a trade that would bring Randall Cobb back to the Packers (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero). This comes at the request of Aaron Rodgers, who returned to the team on Tuesday morning.
The Texans signed Cobb to a three-year, $27MM contract in 2020 under the Bill O’Brien administration. So, after picking up slot receiving Anthony Miller over the weekend, they’re probably open to dealing the veteran.
Cobb, 31 in August, is set to carry a $8.25MM cap hit this year. The Packers can probably make it work now that Rodgers has agreed to a reworked deal.
The Packers drafted Clemson wide receiver Amari Rodgers in the third round, but Rodgers still wants his old pal back. Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, and Devin Funchess are also in the mix for Green Bay.
Cobb played eight seasons with the Packers, totaling 41 receiving touchdowns and more than 5,500 yards.
