Report: Cowboys ‘likely’ to release WR Amari Cooper

Report: Cowboys ‘likely’ to release WR Amari Cooper

The “likely” will release wide receiver Amari Cooper by the start of the new league year later this month, ESPN reported on Friday.

Cooper is due $20 million in fully guaranteed money on March 20, the fifth day of the new league year.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones previously called out Cooper for failing to produce on the level expected given his salary on the heels of a $100 million contract extension.

Cooper, 27, caught 68 passes for 865 yards and a career high-tying eight touchdowns in 15 games last season. His totals in receptions and receiving yards trailed team leader CeeDee Lamb (79, 1,102 yards), while his touchdown total matched tight end Dalton Schultz for the club lead.

Fellow wideout Michael Gallup is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 16. His availability for the start of next season is in question after he tore his ACL on Jan. 2.

A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Cooper has 517 catches for 7,076 yards with 46 touchdowns in 108 career games with the then-Oakland Raiders and Cowboys. He was selected by the Raiders with the fourth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The Cowboys acquired Cooper in October 2018, sending a first-round pick in the 2019 draft.
