The Browns will receive a receiver with experience and several Pro-Bowl selections for the next three years and the Cowboys will save around $16 million for their 2022 salary cap, which was the reason they were looking to move Cooper.
The fourth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft was traded mid-season by the Raiders in his fourth year in the league. In three and a half seasons in Dallas, Cooper recorded 3893 receiving yards and 27 touchdowns.
