Who knows how differently things would've gone had Aaron Rodgers not torn his Achilles on his New York Jets debut? Signing Randall Cobb was a move made for Rodgers. Without the four-time MVP, it hasn't been a season to remember for Cobb in New York.
The veteran receiver has barely made an impact on the stat sheet, with only four catches for 35 yards and a touchdown in the eight games he has played.
Cobb isn't the explosive playmaker he once was. The Jets signed him for his chemistry with Rodgers. With Rodgers injured, Cobb hasn't made an impact on offense.
And he's barely played. Cobb was a healthy scratch for four straight weeks. In his return, he made zero catches.
Cobb did play 15 snaps in the Jets' win over the Houston Texans last week, catching a 15-yard touchdown from Zach Wilson. But unless Rodgers comes back this season, it's hard to imagine Cobb making a consistent impact in the Jets' offense.
The tough question the Jets must answer is whether Cobb returns in 2024. Rodgers will likely want him back, and there's no doubt he has a better chance to contribute with Rodgers in the lineup. But Cobb hasn't made the impact the Jets would've hoped for this year.
