If Amari Cooper was harboring any ill will towards the Dallas Cowboys after they traded him this offseason, he certainly did not show it.
When speaking to reporters, Cooper was asked how he felt about leaving the Cowboys organization after more than three seasons in Dallas.
“It’s not like I disliked being in Dallas. I actually loved being there. I wouldn’t say I just wanted to leave. But you know, at the same time, it’s never personal. It’s just business,” he said, per Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.
“That’s part of the business of being in this league,” he added. “Things like that happen all the time — players get cut, players get traded… With that said, I am excited about this new chapter.”
The Cowboys turned Cooper from a No. 1 receiver that cost them a first-round draft choice in 2018 into only a fifth-round draft choice. He caught 292 passes for 3,893 yards and 27 touchdowns while leading the Cowboys to two NFC East championships and playoff berths in four of his seasons.
What a lucky guy.
