Amari Cooper Excited About CeeDee Lamb Addition

One of the bright spots in the disappointing 8-8 season in 2019 was the passing attack. and each went over 1,100 yards and had 828 yards as the third option. Now, with dynamic first-round pick and his ability to play both in the slot and on the outside replacing Cobb, the Cowboys have one of the most explosive receiving units in the NFL.

Cooper, who signed a five-year, $100 million dollar deal in March, realizes the potential of the Cowboys with Lamb added to the mix, as he expressed on Tuesday.

“I think it was a great pickup,” Cooper said, per 's Todd Archer. “You have to draft the best player on the board. Everybody understands that. He’s a great receiver. I think with me and Michael Gallup going for 1,000 yards last year, the expectation is to have three 1,000-yard receivers this year.”

If it were to happen, they would be the first receiving trio to do so since 2008 when , Anquan Boldin, and Steve Breaston achieved it with the .

The four-time selection also mentioned how he and other receivers, running backs, and tight ends have been working out together for months, including sessions on a football field built at the home of .

“We've all been getting together pretty consistently for months now,” Cooper said. “Working on route-running, working on the and everything like that. We've been getting a lot of work in, getting that timing right as if we were in minicamp or .”

During these workouts, Lamb left a great impression on Cooper and he's ready to add his knowledge to the rookies' extraordinary talent.

“I think he's a quick learner,” Cooper said. “He already has a good foundation. He's fundamentally sound in his route-running. It's very small, nitpicky things that I help him with that I may see with him being a rookie, but I think he has a really good foundation.”

The Cowboys now have three receivers who can lineup anywhere on the field and create constant mismatches for opposing defenses. After having the league's top-ranked offense last season the Cowboys have even more firepower in 2020 and higher expectations as they look to make it back to the after missing the postseason in 2019.

If we can’t win the Super Bowl with this team and coaches then I give up.

I do feel like we have a small window
here and this could be our best shot for a long time, especially if we lose Dak. We have a lot players in their prime especially on offense. Definately feels like we are in a “win now” mode.
