It’s been reported that WR Randall Cobb recently had surgery to clean the back of his ankle and fix a lingering injury. Cobb being 32 years old, is still weighing out his options if he will play in 2023. He has been a fan favorite for both stints with the Green and Gold. If Cobb wants to play in 2023, do the Packers bring him back? Do they move on from the veteran receiver? The Packers will consider the reasons for both questions for the 2023 season.
Bringing Randall Cobb Back
We do not know if Aaron Rodgers will be the Packer’s Quarterback in 2023. Rodgers’s decision could play a big part in not only the Packer’s decision but also Cobbs. If Rodgers returns, there could be a good chance we’ll see Cobb back. If Jordan Love is the QB, you could still see Cobb back for a veteran WR to help Love and the young receiver’s room. As of right now, the Packers don’t have a slot receiver. Instead of drafting a young slot receiver, the Packers could quickly bring back Cobb to give either QB the security blanket they need. Randall could help the Packers on and off the field with his veteran wisdom of the game. Cobb also showed last year he still has a little bit left in the tank to be physical like he was when he was a young player.
Letting Randall Cobb Walk
One big issue for Cobb is his injury history. He had injury problems in his first stint, which ultimately didn’t get him resigned with the Packers. However, going into his 12th season as a true slot receiver, the Packers might not want to consider bringing him back to be an injury-prone player. Cobb has always been a great player and teammate for any team he was on, but he might not be worth the roster spot anymore with his long history of lingering injuries.
