The Dallas Cowboys will have a lot of hard decisions to make in the 2020 offseason. Among them will be how to tie down star wide receiver Amari Cooper.
Fortunately for the Cowboys, Cooper appears very willing to deal with the Cowboys heading into free agency.
Speaking to Cowboys reporters today, Cooper made it clear that he wants to re-sign with Dallas. He took it a step further be asserting that he has “no interest in going anywhere else” via free agency.
“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Of course. Like I just said, I love it here. I want to be here. I just love this situation, my teammates. I just feel it’s the place for me.”

The Cowboys acquired Cooper in a blockbuster trade with the Oakland Raiders last season. They gave Oakland a first-round draft in exchange for the Pro Bowl wideout – and the move quickly paid dividends.
In nine games with the Cowboys last year, Cooper recorded 53 receptions for 725 yards and six touchdowns, making his third Pro Bowl in the process.
During his time with the Cowboys, Cooper has averaged over 80 receiving yards per game – a higher average than any of his years in Oakland.
Suffice it to say, Dallas could probably love to have that kind of production around for the long term.
