NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said the Cowboys could try to trade wide receiver Amari Cooper before they release him on March 20.
Dallas is expected to release Cooper when his $20 million salary guarantee goes into effect.
In March of 2020, the 27-year-old signed a five-year, $100,000,000 contract with the Cowboys that included $60,000,000 guaranteed.
Overall, the whole story is another silly move from Jerry Jones and the ridiculous Cowboys front office.
As a member of the Cowboys, Cooper has totaled 3,893 receiving yards and 27 touchdowns.
Yahoo’s Charles Robinson has reported the Cowboys are “buttoning up a long term deal” with Michael Gallup, which ultimately leads to the decision to part ways with Cooper.
At the end of the day, Jerry Jones is looking at the organization as a cash grab over an actual football team, so this really isn’t too shocking.
Cooper will certainly be useful for another ball club that needs his talented services, and he’ll get plenty of phone calls if he’s indeed a free agent this offseason.
