Amari Cooper signed a five-year, $100 million contract extension with the Cowboys final month, and former coach Rex Ryan would not agree with Dallas’ determination.

Speaking Friday morning on ESPN’s “Get Up,” Ryan laid into Cooper and the Cowboys for committing large cash to the receiver. Ryan was reacting to an nameless NFL govt’s quote in The Athletic that supplied some criticism of the contract.

“It comes back down to, how many guys are really difference makers? That is who you pay the top of the market to,” the chief mentioned. “I’m sorry, Amari Cooper helps, but he does not tilt the field. He has not shown up consistently.”

Reacting to this, Ryan ended up calling Cooper a “turd.”

“[Amari Cooper] is the biggest disappearing act in the National Football League,” Ryan mentioned. “He doesn’t show up on the road. He doesn’t show up against — when the competition’s good, when he goes up against a top corner, this guy disappears. There’s only one time I can remember in recent memory on elite receivers and disappearing acts like Amari Cooper. That was a kid the Raiders had a few years, oh that’s right, that was Amari Cooper. This is who he is. And then he doesn’t love football. Hell with it, he stops his routes, he does all of this. I wouldn’t have paid this turd. No way in hell. No way in hell would I have paid this guy.”

Ryan added the Cowboys “made a huge mistake” bringing Cooper again.

These are surprisingly sturdy phrases from Ryan, particularly contemplating the season Cooper simply had. In his first full season with Dallas, Cooper completed with 79 receptions for 1,189 yards and eight touchdowns. Ryan does have a sturdy level in Saying Cooper “doesn’t show up on the road.” Cooper completed with 869 yards in dwelling video games and simply 320 yards in street video games this previous season.

Still, calling Cooper a “turd” looks as if a low blow from somebody who used to coach NFL gamers. And many soccer fans and analysts really feel that manner as effectively.
