The Cleveland Browns made a monster trade for Amari Cooper, this tells me that Andrew Berry is ready to go all-in on the 2022 season.
Let me be clear, the situation and players are totally different. The Browns overpaid for Beckham who was known as a freelance player and had nagging injury issues. Cooper was likely to be cut, so the Browns got a steal, and he is known as one of the best route runners in the league.
The comment above is not to say OBJ is a bad wide receiver, it just means that Cooper is the perfect fit for the Browns and John Dorsey certainly reached to try and make Beckham work. Time will tell, but this one feels like a home run.
Not only did the Browns only give up a fifth-round pick for Cooper, but they also got a ton of flexibility. An elite number one receiver with a cap hit of $22 million locked up for the next three seasons. There is also the
potential to move a portion of the cap hit in 2022 to a bonus, which will give the organization even more flexibility.
I’ll never forget the day that the NFL network broke the news on OBJ, and believe me, fans should be even more excited for this one. With Berry appearing to be all in on the 2022 season, here are three other major takeaways from the trade that happened-on Saturday afternoon.
