Cowboys Dealing Pro Bowl WR Amari Cooper To Browns For Draft Compensation

Amari Cooper is officially on the move, as the Browns are finalizing a trade to acquire the 27-year-old receiver from the Cowboys.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Dallas' return is a 2022 fifth-round and sixth-round pick. Along with Cooper, Cleveland will receive a sixth-round pick.

It's a move that was expected, as multiple reports confirmed that the Cowboys were shopping Cooper and his $22 million cap hit in 2022. He has three years remaining on his five-year, $100 million contract he signed in 2020.

Cooper failed to reach the 1,000 yard mark in 2021, albeit missing two games due to COVID-19. In eight seasons with the Raiders and Cowboys, Cooper has hauled in 517 receptions for 7,076 yards and 46 touchdowns. Cooper has been selected to the Pro Bowl four times.

Who he'll be catching passes from will be the question, as the Browns are one of the rumored teams in the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes.

As Cooper comes in, another Browns receiver could be on his way out. Jarvis Landry was granted permission to seek a trade shortly after the Cooper news broke.
