Amari Cooper: I want to be a Cowboy for life

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to ProFootballTalk, wide receiver Amari Cooper would like to be a Dallas Cowboys player for life. Cooper is a free agent.

The Cowboys acquired Cooper in a trade with the Oakland Raiders in 2018. The Raiders — who have since relocated to become the Las Vegas Raiders — for a first-round draft pick.

“I love being a Dallas Cowboy,” Cooper said during a Thursday radio interview. “I think about it almost every day. Just the aura of being a Dallas Cowboy, you can’t beat it. I want to be a Dallas Cowboy for life.”

While these are just words, ultimately money will speak for itself. The Cowboys will attempt to re-sign Cooper, while they will try to franchise tag quarterback Dak Prescott to keep them both.

The 25-year-old Miami, Florida native was the fourth overall pick by the Oakland Raiders — now the Las Vegas Raiders — in the 2015 NFL Draft. Cooper has been playing in Dallas since October 2018.

This past season was his first full season with the Boys. He appeared in all 16 games, including 16 starts.

He had 79 receptions for a career-best 1,189 yards and eight touchdowns. Like the receiving yards being a career-high, the eight touchdowns were also a career-high.

Cooper excelled under Kellen Moore’s first-year as offensive coordinator. If he returns to the Cowboys, he will be reunited with Moore, who was hired as the team’s offensive coordinator under new head coach Mike McCarthy.

Since the 2015 NFL season, he has appeared in 77 games, including 72 starts. Cooper has 357 receptions for 5,097 yards and 33 touchdowns.
