Cleveland Browns offensive trio leading the charge this season
No. 2: Amari Cooper, WR
Many are already saying the Browns got a steal when they traded for Cooper and only gave up a fifth-round pick. He’s been very reliable so far and has just had his second straight100 yards receiving game, which hasn’t been seen in Cleveland for almost a decade when Josh Gordan accomplished it in 2013.
The Browns were betting on this type of production when they made the trade and he’s not disappointed so far. If it weren’t for a few missed opportunities in Week 1, Cooper may have had three 100-yard games already.
Why the Cowboys decided to part ways with Cooper is somewhat baffling considering he’s been a previous All-Pro and in his prime of an eight-year career. He’s also all about the team and working to improve. He doesn’t bring much flare to the position. He just keeps catching the ball and running great routes and making life easier for his quarterback.
With the next series of games coming up having to face off against teams like the Los Angeles Chargers and New England Patriots the Browns will look to a veteran like Cooper to count on in big moments. Cleveland has had a few wide receivers come through town in the past like Odell Beckham Jr. who didn’t live up to expectations, so it’s been a nice change to see the production already from Cooper.
