“I wouldn’t have paid that fool. No way in hell. No way in hell would I have paid this guy.”
This is Rex Ryan get started on NFL star Amari Cooper … to say that the broad recipient has not earned his 5-year $ 100 million extension with the Dallas Cowboys ONE BIT !!!
“I wouldn’t have paid this guy,” Rex said on ESPN’s “Get Up!” Friday. “For me, this is the biggest missing act in the National Football League. It doesn’t show up on the street … if the competition is good – if it’s against the top corners, this guy disappears.”
Rex added: “He doesn’t love football! Damn, he stops his routes, he does it all!”
Cowboys owners, of course Jerry Jones would strongly disagree … because on the first day of the free agency last month – he did Amari has top priorityand paid him in advance Dak Prescott.
But Rex says he believes this is a big mistake … because while the 25-year-old Amari has recorded nearly 2,000 receiving yards in just 25 games in Dallas, he claims the guy can’t get out consistently.
“There is only one time that I can remember recently with elite receivers and disappeared acts like Amari Cooper,” says Rex. “That was the kid the Raiders had a few years ago – oh! That’s right, that was Amari Cooper! That’s who he is!”
Rex says he paid Prescott – who was recognized by the team as a franchise company last month – first, and Jerry will regret his decision about the free agency.
“You made a big mistake here,” says Rex.
