Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys Prepare To Part Ways
Amari Cooper and the Dallas Cowboys may be preparing to part ways after Monday’s big moves.
Earlier today, Dallas made the decision to franchise tag quarterback Dak Prescott. In doing so, the team signaled to Cooper that it would try to work with him on a new deal – but that they could not force him to stay.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cowboys have suggested to Cooper’s team that they will continue to try to re-sign him. That said, as of now, there is no contract.
“The Cowboys won’t have a deal for WR Amari Cooper by the time the tampering window opens, but they’ve had talks and obviously want to bring him back,” he tweeted out.
“Those talks will continue.”

As such, Cooper is now free to go out and seek out a big deal from someone else.
To date, Cooper has been mentioned as a potential targets for the New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and several other teams – although it remains unclear how viable of options.
Cooper has consistently maintained that he wants to stay in Dallas. Whether he ultimately gets his wish or not remains to be seen.
