The Cowboys’ decision to tackle wide receiver Amari Cooper to Brown comes under fire, and Jacobi Brissett fan the flames.
Right after the Cowboys traded wide-star receiver Amari Cooper to The Browns, people wondered if they had been cheated and only got a fifth-round draft and traded the sixth-round pick in return.
In fact, they did. In three games with Cleveland, Cooper received two passes from 100 yards with touchdowns in each. He has been the focal point of Brown’s attack and is receiving rave reviews from his coaches and teammates.
Quarterback Jacoby Brisset said this when Tom Pellisero of the NFL Network asked about the Cowboys who trade the receiver to Cleveland:
“I’m so glad they did. I mean it was incredible, he’s one of the smartest players I’ve worked so hard with, they come here every week, he works hard every day, he does the work and it’s a pleasure to play with him. I know he just wants to keep going. The continuation of this matter.”

That voice you hear in the background is Cowboys fans lamenting the trade after watching their attack flop with or without Dak Prescott. With Michael Gallup dealing with the injury, no future has come forward to fill the void Cooper left. Instead, he rips it off with Brown while Dallas struggles.
It’s a frustrating and somewhat predictable scenario. The idea of letting Cooper go in the first place didn’t meet with much enthusiasm. Allowing him to go for such a trivial comeback only made matters worse. Perhaps it would be fine if Dallas got real value in return. Since they didn’t, this all made matters worse.
The Cowboys can’t get Cooper back at this point, so they have to live up to what they have and try to get the receiver’s success in Cleveland out of their minds.
