The Chicago Bears could trade for Amari Cooper, who is rumored to be on the block

Lastly, and most notably, the name which as been in the most headlines as of late: Amari Cooper.

The Cowboys signed Cooper to a massive, 5-year contract worth $100 million. His contract counts $22 million against the cap for the next three seasons, but if the Cowboys cut him, they’d only be out $6 million in dead money.

For the Bears, the contract attached to a guy like Cooper, considering their current situation, shouldn’t matter. They need a true, viable number one option to give Fields, and that’s exactly what Cooper brings to the table.

Talk about route running, Cooper is one of the best in the game. Plus, he offers a ton of extra yardage after the catch. People underrate his speed as well, which is still absolutely there. Crazy enough, Cooper is still lonely 27 years old and right in the prime of his career.

He’s got four Pro Bowls and five 1,000-yard seasons under his belt in seven seasons, and would look to get even more in Chicago as the number one option. If the Bears could get Cooper for something like a future fourth-round pick, it would be quite the steal.
