First-year Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said he's hopeful that Dallas re-signs Cobb during the offseason, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Cobb previously played under McCarthy in Green Bay from 2011 through 2018, with the 29-year-old turning in the best season of his career (91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014) during that stretch. The wideout hauled in 55 passes for 828 yards and three touchdowns in his first yaer in Dallas in 2019 while playing on a one-year, $5 million contract. Coming to terms with fellow impending free-agent wideout Amari Cooper will no doubt rank as a higher priority for the Cowboys, but Cobb's veteran presence in the slot -- and cheaper projected salary -- could realistically give him a clear path to return to Dallas.
