Amari Cooper Cowboys Jersey

There was the Robert Quinn trade, getting the DeMarcus Lawrence contract done, picking up players like Kerry Hyder, George Iloka, and Christian Covington in free agency, and some intriguing draft choices and UDFAs added to the team. The team also had only one notable loss in free agency, slot receiver Cole Beasley. That created some concerns (because around here, we obsess about the negative), but those were quickly quieted when the team made an uncharacteristic move. They signed Randall Cobb to step into the slot. He is much more of a “name” player than Dallas has gone after since the failed Brandon Carr signing. And based on what we have seen in the first week of OTAs, he may well be a significant upgrade as well.Although he has been in the league a year longer than Beasley, Cobb is actually a bit more than a year younger. He is also bigger, 5’10” compared to 5’8”, and carries about ten more pounds. And so far, he has shown no lingering ill effects from the injuries that limited his production with the Green Bay Packers last year Dak Prescott Jersey , forcing him to miss seven games. While OTAs don’t give much to gauge a player with no contact, he is looking good, as reported by Todd Archer of ESPN.Filling a need is the prime objective for Cowboys free agent signings. Cobb certainly looks to have that well-covered. That is good. What is intriguing about his arrival is how he may expand the role he steps into. Dak Prescott commented on that.Now, if you have read my posts here for a while, you might be aware of my penchant for connecting some dots. And those are some very intriguing dots, because they seem to tie directly into what we all hope new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is bringing to the mix: Moving players around, confusing the defense, and getting favorable situations for the offense to exploit. The fact Prescott talked about doing so many different things with Cobb makes you think that has been a subject of discussion with Moore. That should get all Cowboys fans a wee bit excited.Beasley was not used much other than as a traditional slot receiver, although that is likely more a reflection of the predictability of the previous Dallas offensive scheme than any limitations Beasley had. Now, we hope to see more from the young new OC (who, it is interesting to note, is at the moment the same age as Beasley). And Cobb looks very much like exactly what Moore needs to bring some innovation and change. This is one position where flexibility is very much an asset, and it opens up the possibility of sometimes using Amari Cooper and his John Wick-level route running out of the slot. (Sorry for the gratuitous pop culture reference.) You can do that without sacrificing much by having Cobb out wide. It just adds options, and options are very, very good.Cobb brings a very important intangible to the table as well. He was a standout athlete in high school, being named “Mr. Football” by the governing body for high school athletics in Tennessee - primarily as a quarterback. He would also play QB his freshman year at Kentucky, before switching to wide receiver. Those years of being the passer give him a lot of insight into what the offense does overall, and it has already shown up in the OTAs.This has led to an immediate chemistry between the QB and WR that will only increase as they get more reps together. Prescott’s continued growth at his position is crucial for the Cowboys , and Cobb’s savvy and knowledge will only assist with that.It also doesn’t hurt that Cobb wanted to come to Dallas, as has been reported by Charean Williams of NBC (among others). As fans of the team, we want to think that Dallas is a preferred destination for many if not most NFL players and prospects. In this case, it is rooted in truth, as Cobb is joined by Quinn in having taken some initiative in landing with the Cowboys. Now, he is exactly where he wanted to be, and it looks like he is exactly what the team wants in a slot receiver. With a talent laden roster and head coach Jason Garrett in a contract year, there is a lot riding on this season. Cobb is showing every indication that he is more than able to shoulder his share of the load. Let’s go. Both stars are in line for a big payday, plus other news." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBlogging The BoysBlogging The Boys, a Dallas Cowboys fan communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryCowboysOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsFiled underBig Grinallas Cowboys NewsCowboys News: Updates on contract talks for Dak Prescott and Amari CooperNew,275commentsBoth stars are in line for a big payday, plus other news.CDTShareTweetShareShareCowboys News: Updates on contract talks for Dak Prescott and Amari CooperMatthew Emmons-USA TODAY SportsNFL Rumors: Cowboys Making ‘More Progress’ Toward Dak Prescott Contract Extension - Alaa Abdeldaiem, Sports IllustratedNow that free agency and the draft are over, the Cowboys front office has turned their attention to the financial future of their offensive stars. They already picked up Ezekiel Elliott’s fifth-year option, and now word is coming out about contract discussions with Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper.Cowboys contract rumors: Amari Cooper has shockingly high demands, Dak Prescott likely to join exclusive club - John Breech, CBS SportsAmari Cooper may be very quiet in comparison to other star wide receivers around the league, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to be paid like those other guys. According to reports Amari Cooper Cowboys Jersey , Cooper’s initial asking price is much higher than most would have thought it would be. Jerry Jones: Cowboys QB Dak Prescott ‘worthy’ of long-term deal - Alex Butler, United Press InternationalDespite winning 32 games in the last three years and snagging two division titles, there are still some who doubt whether Dak Prescott is worthy of the kind of contract he’s likely to receive. Don’t count Jerry and Stephen Jones among those, though, as they think very highly of their quarterback.

But the latter is exactly what Ezekiel Elliott has been doing this year, a welcome change from previous summers.Mailbag: Pollard Comparison; Best Spot For Lee? - Rob Phillips & Bryan Broaddus, DallasCowboys.comThe drafting of Tony Pollard and subsequent sort-of comparison to Alvin Kamara has understandably perked up some ears, as has the report that the Cowboys will move Sean Lee to SAM linebacker.

While it’s not a done deal, it seems likely that the All Pro center will play again in 2019, and that’s a testament to who Frederick is as a person given everything he’s overcome.
