Reunited: Jets strike deal to pair WR Randall Cobb with QB for 11th season

Randall Cobb rates among new Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets, which explains the team’s motive for adding the veteran slot receiver on a reported one-year deal.Cobb, 32, spent his first eight seasons with Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers before playing for the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans. The Packers, under Rodgers’ direction at a salty stretch in their partnership, re-acquired Cobb via trade from the Texans in 2021.In 10 seasons as teammates, Rodgers completed 534 career passes to Cobb according to Green Bay game notes, second only to the Rodgers-to-Davante Adams pairing (687).Cobb is reportedly tailing Rodgers to New York after the Jets finalized a trade for the four-time MVP quarterback last week. The Jets already signed former Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard to a four-year, $44 million deal in free agency. Cobb turns 33 in August, and Rodgers will be 40 in December.Like Rodgers and Lazard, Cobb will recognize a few familiar faces in New York, including offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, No. 3 quarterback Tim Boyle and right tackle Billy Turner.Cobb played in 13 games last season with 34 receptions for 417 yards and one touchdown.
