There’s been a lot made about the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver corps this offseason. After drafting Oklahoma wide out CeeDee Lamb in the first round of this year’s draft, Dallas made a clear commitment to their passing game in a way we worried they never would.
But given of all the hype surrounding this group of Lamb, Michael Gallup, and Amari Cooper – they will need to perform to an incredibly high level to meet the lofty standards.
The eldest of this group, number one receiver Amari Cooper, spoke to the media this week about this hype and the weird offseason the league is facing as they prepare during a pandemic. Cooper made sure to mention that regardless the situation outside of football, he will be ready.
“Whatever the situation is and whatever the circumstance is I feel like we’re going to be ready. I know I’m going to be ready” – Amari Cooper.
Cooper also went on to speak about his love for the Cowboys culture, saying he loves everything about being a Dallas Cowboy. On the field, that love for being a Cowboy is usually clear. After hitting a wall in Oakland earlier in his career, Cooper revitalized his numbers as soon as he was paired with quarterback Dak Prescott.
Amari Cooper has made the Pro Bowl each season in Dallas, totaling over 1,900 yards and 14 touchdowns over 25 games.
Cooper will need to be more consistent on the road in order to elevate himself to top 3-5 status in the league, but with reinforcements beside him like he’s never had before, Cooper may have even more one-on-one opportunities to dominate in 2020.
So while it’s possible his counting stats take a hit with the addition of CeeDee Lamb, he should be as efficient as ever in this new-looked Dallas Cowboys offense.
