Jerry Jones on @1053thefan discussing Amari Cooper: “He’ll definitely change the dynamics of the offense. There’s no question about it.” Believes Cooper's presence will help Dak, Zeke, and in turn, the Cowboys' third-ranked defense. #cowboyswire
Amari Cooper after his first practice as a Cowboy: “It’s a fresh start. This is a good team. I’m just giving them something to build on, I guess you could say. And it’s America’s Team. Who wouldn’t be excited?” #cowboyswire
At this point in the news cycle, all this stuff has been said a few dozen times. But if you’re looking for a snapshot of why the Cowboys felt comfortable giving up a 1st for Amari Cooper, this quote from Jason Garrett does the trick. #cowboyswirepic.twitter.com/VsPCTg3oZX
Jason Garrett confirms what has been suspected since yesterday, referencing the Cowboys’ scouting department. Doesn’t seem like they’re sold that the Cowboys can find a receiver as good as Amari Cooper at the top of the 2019 draft. #cowboyswire
Garrett's evaluation of Amari Cooper: "We feel like he's a very physically talented guy. He's big, he's fast, he's quick and explosive, he has play-making ability, he's a good route-runner, makes contested plays on the ball." #cowboyswire
Jason Garrett says on @1053thefan that Dak Prescott saw Michael Gallup on the sack/fumble in the fourth quarter and was preparing to throw, but Ryan Kerrigan care free and broke up the play #cowboyswire
Jason Garrett says on @1053thefan that Amari Cooper’s youth and experience made the Cowboys feel better about using a first-round pick on him, especially since they would’ve likely been looking for a WR in the draft #cowboyswire
2. Man, that’s a high price to pay. The beauty of a 1st round pick is that they’re supposed to provide 4-5 years of elite play at a low price. Cooper’s price tag is going to sky rocket after these nine games. And what about his long-term future?
