Amari Cooper is a wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns.

He played college football at the University of Alabama. During his freshman season with the Crimson Tide, Amari’s 11 touchdowns broke Alabama’s 62-year-old record set by Al Lary, and he broke the school’s receptions and receiving yards record. Throughout his college career, he continued to set numerous career records for Alabama. Cooper was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, and he won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver and was a unanimous All-American in 2014. Widely considered the top wide receiver prospect of the 2015 NFL Draft, Cooper was selected with the fourth overall pick by the Oakland Raiders.

After successful rookie and sophomore seasons that included back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns and two Pro Bowl appearances, he was traded to the Dallas Cowboys and his play began to flourish again, including a 217-yard performance, and as a result, was voted to the third Pro Bowl of his career. Cooper also had successive 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020, making the Pro Bowl in 2019.

On March 17, 2020, Cooper signed a five-year contract extension with the Cowboys worth $100 million. On March 16, 2022, Cooper was traded to the Cleveland Browns.

Cooper is an avid chess player. He was first captivated by the game as an elementary school student in northwest Miami, and as a football player, he relates chess strategies to his play on the field.
