Amari Cooper

When the Dallas Cowboys signed Amari Cooper to a five-year, $100 million contract in 2020, the club built in an escape hatch in the deal beginning in 2022 with no guaranteed money left.

The Cowboys are ready to pull that lever.

Dallas will try to trade Cooper, but will release the veteran receiver if no deal is reached, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday, per sources.

Cooper’s $20 million base salary becomes guaranteed on the fifth day of the new league year, which begins March 16. If the Cowboys follow through with their plan to part ways with the receiver, it wipes off $16 million from the salary cap, with $6 million in dead money. In essence, Cooper’s extension will wind up being a two-year, $40 million deal.
