    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Set for more slot routes

    Amari Cooper is likely to line up in the slot more frequently after the Dallas Cowboys selected CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall pick in the 2020 draft, NFL analyst Andy Benoit suggests.The addition of Lamb to a receiving corps that already featured standout talents in Cooper and Michael Gallup gives offensive coordinator Kellen Moore a lot of formation flexibility, as both Cooper and Lamb have experience working inside and outside. With Dallas having lost slot receiver Randall Cobb and tight end Jason Witten (166 combined targets) in the offseason, there should be plenty of looks available for everyone, but even if Cooper's target volume somehow decreases as part of a deeper group of receivers, improved efficiency would keep his overall production afloat. In the best-case scenario, of course, the Cowboys' No. 1 wideout would both see more passes thrown his way and be able to do more damage with them.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Nearing huge deal with Dallas

    Amari Cooper is nearing agreement on a five-year, $100 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.The 25-year-old seemed poised to officially test the open market, but it appears Dallas was able to secure its top wide receiver after the tampering window opened Monday afternoon. Cooper set career highs in yardage (1,189), touchdowns (eight) and YPC (15.1) during 2019 while catching 79 of 119 targets. Quarterback Dak Prescott received the franchise tag earlier in the day, so the Cowboys are set to enter the 2020 season having secured their top two impending free agents.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Preparing for free agency

    With Dak Prescott receiving the Dallas Cowboys' franchise tag, Amari Cooper will be able to test the free-agent market, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.The Cowboys will make an honest effort to re-sign their star wide receiver, but there's no question other teams will be interested. Cooper arguably profiles as the top prize on the market, at least in the non-quarterback category. The Cowboys had been hoping for the option to use both a franchise tag and a transition tag this offseason, but the recent completion of a new CBA eliminates that possibility.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Reiterates desire to stay in Dallas

    Amari Cooper said he wants to spend the rest of his career in Dallas, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.Cooper can become an unrestricted free agent in a couple weeks but has now made multiple comments about his preference to stay in Dallas. He also mentioned that he's back to full health, after dealing with foot, knee, ankle and thigh injuries at various points throughout 2019. With details of a new collective bargaining agreement still being hashed out, the Dallas Cowboys may have the option to use both the franchise and transition tags this offseason, thereby reducing the risk of losing Cooper in free agency. Dak Prescott is expected to get the franchise tag if he doesn't sign a long-term contract before the March 12 tag deadline. Cooper presumably would then get the transition tag, which doesn't involve any draft compensation but does give Dallas the option to match any offer sheet. Both tags allow for long-term contract negotiations through mid-July.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Hopes to re-sign with Cowboys

    Amari Cooper said he wants to stay in Dallas for a long time, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.The 25-year-old wideout may prefer to re-sign with the Dallas Cowboys, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll accept a hometown discount. And while the franchise tag would normally give the team a backup plan for retaining a player of Cooper's caliber, the Cowboys will need to use the tag on Dak Prescott if they can't sign the quarterback to a long-term deal before the start of free agency. As such, there's still some chance Cooper ends up with a new team in 2020, though it isn't the most likely scenario.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Puts together big contract year

    Amari Cooper finished 2019 with 79 catches on 119 targets for 1,189 yards and eight touchdowns.The yards and scores were both career highs, as was his 10.0 yards per target. Cooper battled nagging injuries for most of the season despite playing in all 16 games, leaving the impression that he's capable of even more production than he showed in his first full campaign with the Dallas Cowboys. The 25-year-old is an unrestricted free agent this offseason -- one of two significant names in the Dallas offense currently without a deal, along with Dak Prescott. Whether Cooper returns to the team will depend on if the Cowboys can find cap room for him after getting the quarterback situation settled, as well as whether a potential new head coach and offensive coordinator deem the wideout worth bringing back for big money.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Does little with big volume

    Amari Cooper caught four of 12 targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Eagles.Dak Prescott had little success trying to stretch the field, and as a result Cooper came away with his second straight poor performance. It's the first time this season he's failed to turn double-digit targets into at least eight catches or 85 yards, but the volume does offer hope for a rebound in Week 17's must-win game against Washington.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Quiet in big win over Rams

    Amari Cooper caught one of two targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 44-21 win over the Rams.His day mirrored that of the Dallas Cowboys' entire wide-receiver group, as the team leaned heavily on a dominant running game to generate offense. Cooper, Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb combined to produce three catches for only 22 yards, and Tavon Austin surprisingly led the team's WRs thanks to one 59-yard TD catch. Cooper will look to rebound next Sunday with the NFC East title on the line in Philadelphia, facing an Eagles defense he posted a 5-106-0 line against in Week 7.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Receiving score in Week 14 loss

    Amari Cooper secured six of eight targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Dallas Cowboys' 31-24 loss to the Bears on Thursday.Cooper co-led the Cowboys in receptions while checking in second to Michael Gallup in receiving yardage and targets. The 25-year-old was on the receiving end of Dak Prescott's only passing touchdown of the night as well, securing a 19-yard scoring toss with 4:29 remaining that brought Dallas to within 31-21. The trip to the end zone snapped a three-game touchdown-less streak for Cooper, his longest such stretch of the campaign. He'll look to get back over the 100-yard mark for the first time since Week 10 when he sees the Rams' stingy secondary in a Week 15 matchup, a week from Sunday.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Full practice participant

    Amari Cooper (knee) practiced without limitations Monday, David Helman of the Dallas Cowboys' official site reports.Coach Jason Garrett expressed optimism that Cooper would be ready for Thursday's matchup against the Bears, and Monday's practice report confirms that notion. Cooper appeared back to normal in the Thanksgiving Day game against the Bills before injuring his knee in the fourth quarter, but additional tests found no structural damage. The fifth-year wide receiver will look to continue his trajectory after an eight-catch, 85-yard Week 13 performance in Thursday's tilt versus the Bears' ninth-ranked pass defense (222.2 passing yards allowed per game).
