Dak Prescott didn’t need long to hit it off with Amari Cooper. The receiver arrived in Dallas at the trade deadline in October and caught 53 passes for 725 yards and six touchdowns in nine games.
Prescott has had more time to get to know free agent signee Randall Cobb, but he hasn’t needed it.
Prescott and Cobb have formed a quick connection.
“The biggest thing for me is just continuing to build chemistry with him,” Cobb said. “We’re both very open about talking through things. The more communication we have, the more we’ll be on the same page.”
If Cobb can stay healthy — he hasn’t played a full, 16-game schedule since 2015 — he could lead the Cowboys in receptions. The team’s former slot receiver, Cole Beasley, led the Cowboys in receptions in 2016 and ranked second last season only to running back Ezekiel Elliott.
