The Facts: Cooper played the final season of his rookie contract in 2019, and with free agency looming, his future is uncertain. With more than a month before the official start of free agency, he's not stressing over it -- yet. There is a chance he lands elsewhere, though, if he and the Cowboys can't work out a new deal before then. "I'm just taking it day by day," Cooper said Thursday. "I don't really feel like there's nothing that's imminent. I'm not anxious, I'm not apprehensive. I'm just living life."
Diehards Line:As NFL.com's Nick Shook notes, Cooper found such success with his move from Oakland to Dallas, racking up 1,914 receiving yards in 27 games played with Dak Prescott in between the final nine contests of the 2018 season and all of 2019. He also completed his best season of his career in 2019, posting career-high marks in receiving yards (1,189) and touchdowns (8). Cooper's destiny now rests in his own hands. Whether that will include a new contract in Dallas or a move elsewhere remains to be seen. One thing is for certain, though: While the Cowboys will have a projected $81 million in cap space to work with (per Over The Cap), for Cooper, it won't be just about the money.
