Aaron Rodgers really didn’t seem happy to see Randall Cobb leave the Green Bay Packers.

The talented receiver agreed to a deal with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, and that officially ended his time as one of Rodgers’ favorite guys to sling the rock to.

The Super Bowl-winning quarterback posted several photos of them together on Instagram and captioned it with the following:

“I have to remind myself that some birds aren’t meant to be caged … And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they’re gone. I guess I just miss my friend.” #friendship #teammates #brothers #Packers

Despite the fact that I hate the Packers with every part of my body, Randall Cobb seems like one hell of a dude. He’s also very talented and dependable in the passing game. (RELATED: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Says He Won’t Get Surgery On His Knee)

I’m guessing Rodgers is going to miss him a ton, and the Packers are going to have move quickly on finding a replacement.

Having said that, I’m so happy that Cobb isn’t on the Packers anymore. As a huge Lions fan, I don’t want my defense to face Rodgers with Cobb on the field as a weapon for Green Bay.

I want that offense crippled, and it’s substantially better with Cobb out there.
