Amari Cooper is a VERY rich man today — dude just agreed to a $100 MILLION deal with the Cowboys … but could he have gotten EVEN MORE to spurn Dallas for its rivals?!!?
Yes … because according to multiple reports — the superstar wideout turned down “significantly” more cash from the Washington Redskins on Monday!!
As for why … Coop’s made no real attempt to hide it — he loves Dak Prescott and Dallas — and the fact that he logged more than 1,000 yards in his 2nd season with the Cowboys didn’t hurt either.
Of course, $20 MIL per season — with $60 MIL guaranteed — wasn’t exactly a hometown discount … only 3 receivers in the history of the league have topped those numbers — Odell Beckham ($65M), Julio Jones ($64M) and Michael Thomas ($60.5M).
As for all those Dallas fans who had to sweat until the deal was officially agreed to on Monday … this wasn’t THAT hard to see coming.
Remember, TMZ Sports broke the story … just days after Cooper’s first season with the Cowboys ended, he got a diamond pendant immortalizing his 1st games in Dallas.
Yeah, you don’t do that just to leave for the rival a year later.
