He should offset the Flowers comp pick.

KC fans seems to think he was underpaid, appreciated his services.

Hooper - I would have paid 4/44. But ... if this year is a "get your feet wet" year and we really are realistically looking at next year 2022 as our competition window then we have some time to find our 3 down TE. But man ... Hooper seemingly checked all the boxes.

Wes Schweitzer - sounds like hes our version of Bergstrom. Plays all over the line, ideal as depth guy but is a great locker room guy. Honestly Id rather have this guy for his contract vs Flowers at 10M AAV.

Im really interested to see how they use Fuller...I don't think he is an outside Corner. Slot Corner who in some packages could be a safety. Fuller is a playmaker tho.

I like the Schweitzer signing because it was a sign of a solid plan if they lost Flowers.

Hooper didn't check all boxes, he's just best of a mediocre crop. Mediocre blocker, which we've lacked at TE for years. Draft is light on TEs so maybe we're seeing whether we coukd get Hunter or Njoku in a swap with TW?

Hope we go after Boston at least. Looks like a good fit.

The Patriots play in Taxachusetts so obviously that hasn't hurt them.
Yeah I see your point, but I think there are some fairly cut and dried differences like state taxes which could be accounted for. In the end it depends on where the player wants to go , but we see so often that money talks and players often go for the highest offer

You can keep Cooper. Don't want him. I just remember that Eagles game at the end of the season. Their season is on the line and he's out there dropping passes and running weak ass routes. I see why Gruden didn't want him. When you need him to be a pitbull he turns into a chihuahua.

Good to have Fuller back. He never should have left.

A lot of people are saying this, but it completely ignores the tax implications. The skins reportedly offered Cooper $110 million; however, cooper would have had to pay 6% state income taxes here. There are no state income taxes in Texas, so its pretty much a wash.

Cooper made it clear he wanted to stay in Dallas. He and Dak have a good relationship. Dallas traded to acquire him when he had a lot of doubters. So there is some loyalty there. If he had chosen to leave Dallas, sell his home, leave his friends, relocate his family, to end up netting, after taxes, slightly more to play for a division rival, it would have been a huge F. U. to Dallas.

So I really don't think Cooper's decision is even a remotely an indictment that players don't want to come here.

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings 2020

Fact remains Dallas are closer to competing right now, thats why Cooper , and Hooper for that matter, would likely have better options

He turned 33 today, happy birthday. A 4 year deal with an acceptable 2 year out would not be bad. Hes productive.

I'll take him with a smile on my face. One of my favorite non-skins players in the NFL.

Same, him working with McLaurin (Who he reminded me of on draft night) on things will only help. He is still productive

If they are still productive and will agree to sign a reasonable contract, there is a need imo. He would make our team better.

For me that kind of big money splashy move should warrant a true WOW factor playmaker, which I don't see Cooper as.

So sure you want to bulk that receiving corps up, but I like what we have, I hope we can find some young talent in the draft, and FA isn't over, I wouldn't hate bringing Robby Anderson, Sanders or Funchess on a cheaper contract.
Elite is a relative term. I encourage you to look at Daks numbers before Cooper arrived and compare them to his numbers after Cooper arrived. Cowboys were in the bottom third of the league in 3rd down conversions. After Amari Cooper arrived, Dallas vaulted to one of the best teams at converting 3rd down.

Cooper doesn't need to touch the ball to make a difference.

Cooper is a young QBs best weapon. My thinking Redskins pursuit of Cooper was more about Haskins than anything. Trying to surround him with premier talent.
