NFL: Browns WR Amari Cooper absent at minicamp


Share post:

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper was a no-show for the first day of a mandatory minicamp on Tuesday.

Head coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed that Cooper’s absence was not excused. He did not confirm if the five-time Pro Bowl selection’s non-attendance was contract related.

Cooper, who turns 30 next week, is due a non-guaranteed base salary of $20 million in 2024, the final season of a five-year, $100 million deal he signed with the Dallas Cowboys in 2020.

Stefanski said “there’s been a dialogue” between the team and the agent for Cooper, who also was not seen at any of Cleveland’s earlier OTA practices that were open to the media.

Cooper caught 72 passes for 1,250 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games in 2023 after catching 78 for 1,160 yards and nine scores in 17 games in his first season with Cleveland in 2022.

He has 667 receptions for 9,486 yards and 60 TDs in 140 games (133 starts) with the then-Oakland Raiders (2015-18), Cowboys (2018-21) and Browns. The Raiders drafted him No. 4 overall in 2015.
