Dallas Cowboys WR Amari cooper likely to be released

The Dallas CowboysAre “likely to release wide receivers Amari CooperSources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the new league year was about to begin.

Cooper is due $20m in fully guaranteed money on March 20, the fifth day of the new league season. Cooper's $100million contract was created by the Cowboys in a way that allowed them to get out of it for a pittance after just two seasons. Cooper's salary cap would not be $22 million if they cut Cooper. Instead, $6 million would be added to his salary.

A team with a projected cap of more than $21,000,000 is worth every penny, especially considering the many unsigned key agents (defensive end) Randy Gregory, tight end Dalton Schultz, linebacker Leighton Vander EschSafety and security Jayron Kearse.

They could see a lot of turnover in the receiver spot in 2022, if the Cowboys decide to cut Cooper. CeeDee LambBut, it is not yet final Michael Gallup(who tore the ACL late in last season) Cedrick WilsonThey will be considered free agents
