Amari Cooper, Browns restructure contract

The Browns have restructured Amari Cooper's contract, converting most of his $20 million salary into a signing bonus.

Fantasy Impact

The team also added two void years which saves them over $15 million in cap space for 2022. The restructure is similar to Deshaun Watson's and, in fact, the two together will make $66 million in cash but only count $15 million against the cap.

Amari Cooper traded to Cleveland Browns

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has been traded to the Cleveland Browns along with a sixth round draft pick in exchange for a fifth round pick and a sixth round pick, according to multiple reports.

Fantasy Impact

Cooper has been rumored to be on the trade block for a few months now, but the Cowboys' compensation for the Pro Bowl wideout is somewhat surprising. The Cowboys need cap space, and Cooper is due $20 million in each of the next three seasons, so this was a financially motivated move. Cooper immediately steps in as the No. 1 wide receiver in Cleveland, while CeeDee Lamb, tight end Daulton Schultz, and Michael Gallup (assuming he is re-signed) figure to benefit in Dallas.

Amari Cooper drawing interest from the Browns

Per Jordan Schultz, sources are linking the Browns as a possible landing spot for Amari Cooper.

Fantasy Impact

According to Jordan, the Cowboys could still elect to trade the former Pro Bowl wideout instead of cutting him. Dallas is looking for a third-round pick, but "might settle for a 4." Cooper's dynasty value would take a big hit if he ends up with Baker Mayfield as his quarterback in a run-heavy Browns offense. However, one positive aspect of potentially leaving Dallas for Cleveland would be a higher target share for the 27-year-old.

Amari Cooper drawing interest from Patriots and Dolphins if released

According to NFL reporter Jordan Schultz, Both the Patriots and Dolphins would have great interest in signing Amari Cooper if he’s released by the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Rumors continue to fly around the 27-year-old standout WR in Dallas. With the Cowboys in cap jail and having Dalton Schultz, Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown, Malik Turner, and Conner Williams all headed to free agency n the offensive side of the ball, cutting Cooper could help them retain some of their free agents. A move to cut the veteran wideout could save the team upwards of $15 million.

Amari Cooper not generating much trade interest

According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo, teams have shown minimal interest in trading for Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper.

Fantasy Impact

It was reported on Friday that the Cowboys are expected to move on from Cooper, but Robinson points out that teams across the NFL have known he's been on the trade market for at least a week. Still, the other 31 franchises haven't shown significant interest in trading for Cooper and his $20 million annual salary. Teams don't want to give up significant compensation in a trade because they know there are "many quality wideouts available and too many coming into the league," writes Robinson. This past season, the 27-year-old appeared in 15 games, catching 68 passes for 865 yards and eight touchdowns. He's a four-time Pro Bowler who has posted four-digit yardage totals in five of his seven pro seasons. However, the Cowboys like what they have in CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, among others, leaving Cooper as the odd man out. Trading or releasing the former No. 4 picks would cost Dallas $6 million in dead money while creating $16 million in cap space. Cooper will likely rank as a low-end WR2 heading into fantasy drafts this summer, but his exact value will depend on his landing spot.
