Cleveland Browns offseason moves being overshadowed number 1- Amari Cooper, wide receiver
When the Browns first acquired wide receiver Amari Cooper from the Dallas Cowboys, a lot of people didn’t pay much attention because of the uncertainty at quarterback. Though there is still uncertainty with a possible suspension looming it seems appropriate to revisit the Cooper trade.
Cleveland had to find a reliable and consistent number one receiver and that is exactly what Amari Cooper is.
In Cooper’s eight seasons in the NFL, he has compiled five seasons of at least 1,000 receiving yards and at least five touchdowns. He is one of the best route runners in the league, which also helps teach the young wide receivers, and has never had a passer rating when targeted below 96.
Cooper is the type of receiver that is who you look for when you need a play to be made and he usually makes it. He creates consistent separation, has the speed to stretch the field vertically, and has reliable hands.
When you are looking at a new quarterback you must have a receiver you can count on to show up week and week out and that is exactly what you get from Amari Cooper.
