Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is in talks with Dallas about a new contract. But he isn’t too concerned about his new deal.
Cooper is leaving the contract negotiations up to his agent. He’s focused on earning respect with his play.
Via Dallas News:
“It’s kind of weird situation, just being that I’ve never been in this situation before, talking about a contract,” Cooper said Saturday while attending 105.3 The Fan’s Mudbug Bash in Arlington. “But also, I’m under a fifth-year option, so I’m not too familiar with it. I really don’t ask my agent many questions. I’m not really worried about it that much.
“I’m more focused on actually playing and really earning the respect and then the contract.”
There’s a good reason Cooper isn’t concerned about his new contract. He’s going to get a nice raise in pay. The final year of his rookie deal is paying him $13.9 million. A new deal is expected to pay him around $16 million annually.
Cooper has to be extremely happy to be out of Oakland. Not only is he on a better team, he’s about to get some serious America’s team coin.
