Jets' Xavier Cooper: Signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper signed with the Jets on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Cooper was waived by the 49ers a week ago but it didn't take him long to find a new home in the NFL. The defensive lineman played in five games this season for San Francisco, posting seven tackles and a half sack in that time. With the Jets dealing with several injuries on the defensive line, Cooper will be brought in to add some insurance to the unit.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers waived Cooper on Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Cooper appeared in five games and logged seven tackles and a half sack for the 49ers, who picked him up on a waiver claim before the season. With bolstering their pass rush on the edge a greater need, however, the 49ers deemed Cooper expendable after signing defensive end Datone Jones in a corresponding move.

Cooper likely won't carve out a big role in his first several weeks with his new team, but don't be surprised if the 24-year-old is a piece of the San Francisco defensive puzzle by the end of the season.

Browns rookie DT Xavier Cooper sacking his way to recognition
by Marty Gitlin |

Browns rookie defensive tackle Xavier Cooper has opened eyes in training camp and through two preseason games. Those eyes opened wider when he registered sacks two and three Thursday night against Buffalo.

The Browns selected Cooper late in the third round because they were intrigued by his quick first step, according to the team website. His success hasn't surprised fellow Browns rookie lineman Dylan Wynn, who played against Cooper in college.

"Coop's been killing it," Wynn said. "He's a monster. He was just like that at Washington State ... He's a special player. He definitely got slept on in the draft and that's why he went third round. ... He just gets it done."
