Randall Cobb has had quite the NFL career. From Green Bay to Dallas to a short stint in Houston then back to Green Bay Cobb has made an impact on a few different teams. His brief stint with the Jets, however, hasn't gone so well.
Frankly, this was just a move made to help satisfy future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, it's safe to say that the Cobb experiment hasn't worked out quite the way anyone has wanted it to.
It's time for the Jets to start giving some of Cobb's snaps to a young receiver like Jason Brownlee.
The NY Jets should play Jason Brownlee over Randall Cobb
Jason Brownlee signed with the Jets shortly following the 2023 NFL Draft as an undrafted free agent. Brownlee quickly made his presence felt in training camp, and soon after in the preseason.
Cobb, unfortunately, could be one of the worst players at any position in the NFL. So far this season, Cobb has recorded a 40% drop rate, which is the worst mark in the NFL.
He has three catches for 20 yards on 12 targets and has played 49 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps. Simply put, it's time for the Jets to make a change.
This is where Jason Brownlee can come into play. Brownlee finished the preseason with 10 receptions and 102 yards on 18 targets (zero drops). These are all very good numbers for an undrafted rookie, and quite frankly, anything would be better than what Cobb is putting up right now.
With how downright bad Cobb has been, and the Jets already making one mistake by choosing to give more snaps to Cobb over Mecole Hardman, Robert Saleh must do something.
Whether they make a trade for a receiver or not, that doesn't change the fact that a change must take place with Randall Cobb, and Brownlee could very well be the guy to take that spot.
