Amari Cooper: From Dallas to Cleveland – Beckett Pricing Insider
Ever since he entered the league in 2015, Amari Cooper has been considered one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. He was drafted fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders. After three years he joined the powerhouse offense of the Dallas Cowboys. Cooper found great success there, catching for over 1,000 yards in three of the last four seasons.
But he fell victim to the salary cap this offseason and was traded to the Cleveland Browns. This could be a good thing for Cooper though. Cleveland just cut Jarvis Landry, so he will be the number one guy for the Browns. He will also not have to share the spotlight with the rest of the Dallas wide receiver corps anymore. That could also mean more attention from collectors, although it is away from the bright Dallas spotlight.
Being a first rounder, his cards were immediately sought after by collectors. Over the years, his values have softened. Even going to a highly collected team like the Cowboys didn’t bring his values up.
Being traded to Cleveland could be a blessing for Cooper collectors. Historically the Browns haven’t always been a hot team with collectors, but in recent years they are seen as a team on the rise.
