Reports from recent days said that Aaron Rodgers wanted the Packers to reacquire and that a trade was expected to get done.
The Packers made concessions with Rodgers to get him to return and one of them is clearly to take his opinion into account when making personnel decisions from here on.
Cobb, 30, is a former 2011 second-round pick of the Packers out of Kentucky. After his four-year rookie contract expired in 2015, the Packers signed Cobb to a four-year, $40 million extension that ran through the 2018 season.
The Packers allowed Cobb’s contract to expire and he later signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Cowboys. He signed with the Texans on a three-year, $27 million deal.
In 2020, Cobb appeared in 10 games for the Texans and caught 38 passes for 441 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
