The Dallas Cowboys have already agreed to a long-term deal with Amari Cooper, but they're reportedly not done at the wide receiver position.

According to NFL Network's Jane Slater, Dallas has expressed interest in veteran wideout Emmanuel Sanders. Sanders, who turned 33 yesterday, finished last season with the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers following a midseason trade.

Sanders, who played for the Denver Broncos from 2014 until midway through 2019 and began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010, has multiple ties to Dallas. He played his college ball at SMU, and as Slater writes, he trains in Dallas in the offseason.

Should Dallas sign Sanders, he would likely fill the team's No. 3 wide receiver role. Cooper is the clear-cut No. 1, with the emerging Michael Gallup lining up opposite him.

Randall Cobb, the team's third option in 2019, agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with the Houston Texans this week.

Dallas has been active in free agency, tagging quarterback Dak Prescott and agreeing to a five-year, $100-million contract with Cooper. Last night, the team came to terms with free agent defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

The new NFL league year opens at 4 p.m. ET today. Players can begin signing contracts any time after that.
