Cobb, who recently agreed to sign with the Texans, said he felt better in 2019 than he had in previous seasons, getting good results after he strengthened his hamstrings, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb claims the Cowboys training staff identified his weak hamstrings as a potential limiting factor and worked with him to strengthen the muscles during the offseason. He went on to produce his most receiving yards (828) since 2015 and his best mark for yards per target (10.0) since 2014, despite being charged with eight drops. Cobb averaged 9.1 yards before the catch on his 55 receptions, compared to 3.9 in his final season with the Packers. He's proven himself a bit more dynamic than the typical slot receiver, and Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson should be able to take advantage of Cobb's ability to work downfield from an inside alignment. The 29-year-old has agreed to a three-year, $27 million contract, joining Will Fuller and Kenny Stills in a receiving corps that recently lost DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals.

Cobb agreed to terms on a three-year, $27 million contract with the Texans on Monday, James Jones of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was reportedly interest in the 29-year-old returning to Dallas for the 2020 campaign, but he'll instead end up heading to Houston. The Texans shipped DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals earlier in the day, so Cobb will partially fill that significant void for quarterback Deshaun Watson. Cobb caught 55 of 83 targets for 828 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games last season, posting the best YPC (15.1) of his nine-year career.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that he aims to re-sign Cobb for the 2020 season, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb previously played under McCarthy in Green Bay from 2011-18, during which time the 29-year-old wideout recorded his career-best 2014 season (91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns). Having hauled in 55 passes for 828 yards and three touchdowns last season while playing on a one-year, $5 million contract, Cobb will become an unrestricted free agent in March unless the Cowboys opt to re-sign him. Coming to terms with fellow impending free-agent wideout Amari Cooper will no doubt rank as a higher priority for the team, but Cobb's veteran presence in the slot could realistically lend him a clear path to returning to Dallas.

Cobb is more likely to re-sign with Dallas after the hiring of head coach Mike McCarthy, who previously worked with the slot receiver in Green Bay, ESPN.com's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb played 2019 on a one-year, $5 million contract, hauling in 66.3 percent of his targets for a career-high 15.1 yards per catch, with 55.2 receiving yards per game representing his best mark since 2014. He left no doubt about his ability to get open and pick up yards after the catch (6.0 YAC average), but his eight drops were tied for sixth most in the league. Now preparing for his age-30 season, Cobb likely has interest in re-signing with the Cowboys and thus reuniting with McCarthy, but the veteran slot receiver probably won't be as much of a priority for the team as fellow impending free agents Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper and Byron Jones.

Cobb wrapped up the 2019 season with 55 catches on 83 targets for 828 yards and three touchdowns over 15 games.

EDGE Analysis

In his first season outside of Green Bay, Cobb operated as the Cowboys' No. 3 receiver for much of the year and produced his highest yardage total since 2015, as well as 10.0 yards per target -- his best mark in that category since 2014. The 29-year-old is an unrestricted free agent this offseason and would probably be welcomed back in Dallas at the right price given his reliability out of the slot, but the team has bigger priorities ahead of him in Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper when it comes to re-signing free agents.

Cobb caught five of seven targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

It was a solid effort from the veteran slot receiver, as he tied Michael Gallup for the team lead in catches among WRs. Cobb's 747 receiving yards on the year mark his highest total since 2015, and he'll look to make one last impact in Week 17's must-win game against Washington.

Cobb caught one of two targets for minus-3 yards in Sunday's 44-21 win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

The Cowboys leaned heavily on their running game, as Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard each ran for over 100 yards and combined for three TDs, so there wasn't a whole lot of production left over for the team's wide receivers. Even so, Cobb's efforts were notably poor, and his two targets were a season low. He'll try to bounce back Week 16 against the Eagles, but he may not have much more success. Philly held him to two catches for 29 yards in their prior meeting this year.

Cobb (illness) doesn't carry an injury designation for Thursday's game at Chicago, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb's practice reps were impacted by an illness this week, but he nonetheless increased his workload by the day, culminating in full participation at Wednesday's walk-through session. Consequently, he's poised to suit up Thursday against a Bears defense that has given up 7.5 yards per target and seven touchdowns to wide receivers in 12 contests this season.

Cobb (illness) practiced in a limited capacity Tuesday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

With that, Cobb -- who caught all three of his targets for 53 yards in last week's loss to the Bills - figures to be a go Thursday night against the Bears, though we'll have to see if he heads into the contest listed as questionable, or without a Week 14 injury designation altogether.

Cobb (illness) will return to practice Tuesday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb sat out Monday's session due to illness but is apparently feeling better, and he'll at least work as a limited participant Tuesday. According to David Helman of the Cowboys' official site, coach Jason Garrett also indicated the ailment shouldn't impact the veteran wideout's availability for Thursday's matchup with the Bears.
