The Facts: Cobb didn’t say it in front of the media, and he didn’t say it to Cowboys coach Jason Garrett. But Cobb used the same words Earl Thomas did when Cobb ran into Cowboys QB Dak Prescott at NFL Honors in February: Come get me. “Yeah, he said that,” Prescott said. “It’s interesting looking back, and now that I’ve had a couple practices in with him, he’s an incredibly smart guy. I think that’s going to be the best thing that helps him pick everything up and just get going and be a big-time player in this offense.”
Diehards Line:The Cowboys signed Cobb in March to replace Cole Beasley in the slot. The Cowboys like what they have seen from the healthy Cobb so far. He’s only 28 and has extra motivation to have a big season. Cobb, who played only nine games last season because of injuries, posted an Instagram story earlier this week that seemed to suggest he comes into this season with a chip on his shoulder. The photo showed him with a potato chip sitting on his shoulder. “I’ve always got it; that’s nothing new,” Cobb said, laughing. “I’ve had a chip on my shoulder since I was 7." Cobb’s 38 catches last season were his fewest since 2013 and his 383 yards and two touchdowns were his fewest since his rookie season of 2011. He had hamstring and concussion issues that limited him to 466 snaps. We'll see if he can avoid similar issues as we move through the summer.
