The Cowboys had to decide if they wanted to create a hat room by cutting Amari Cooper. If so, what are the 5 best landing spots for wide receivers?

The early years of Amari Cooper’s career were defined by his mistakes. During his three seasons with the Oakland Raiders that followed, Cooper suffered a mental breakdown that resulted in oddly low numbers. He dropped 18 passes during his rookie season and would go on to make 18 more in his final two-and-a-half years with the team before being traded to the Dallas Cowboys in the middle of the 2018 season.

The change of scenery worked wonders. Over the next three and a half seasons with the Cowboys, Cooper elevated his status to one of the NFL’s elite broad-trackers. The drop is now not as common as it was in his early days, and Cooper has become a real three-tier threat to the Cowboys and number one receiver for Dak Prescott.

However, 2021 is a relatively low year for Cooper. He caught 68 passes from 865 yards and 8 touchdowns while sitting in the back row behind second-year scorer, CeeDee Lamb. Cooper has hinted throughout the season that he wants a bigger role with the Cowboys in 2021, but a few months – and a disappointing playoff exit – after that, there were significant troubles that Dallas Cowboys willing to part with Cooper in search of limited room creation.

Most teams will be after his signature, but which five landing points mean the most to Amari Cooper?

Dallas is projected to go over the $26 million cap in 2022 and faces some tough decisions during the season and, clearly, a Cooper cut could become a reality. If that happens, the market for Cooper will be huge. He will be just 28 years old by the time the 2022 NFL season begins and is still in his prime.
