Too franchise tag or not to franchise tag that is the question
Once the domino falls and Prescott has signed the next player the Dallas Cowboys will turn their focus towards will be a wide receiver, Amari Cooper. But here’s the problem with the Cooper situation, which player you going to get?
The receiver that early in the season was burning cornerbacks and seemed uncoverable or the receiver that seemed to fade late in the season and was easily taken away as a weapon when the Cowboys needed him most?
A fair question, if Jerry Jones didn’t already know the answer and that answer is, it doesn’t matter. Jones spent a first-round pick on Cooper and is not going to let that investment in a player go so easily, he is going to want something in return for Cooper.
Jones also got a taste of what Cooper can do when he is on and that is the kind of thing that gets Jones pumped enough to throw a nice deal Cooper’s way in hopes that he will take it.
Now it does take two to tango and right now the Dallas Cowboys sole focus has been on getting a deal with Prescott done. We also don’t know if it will help matters now that Cooper has change agents before the start of free agency. Which is why the franchise tag makes the most sense for the Cowboys dealing with Cooper.
They would be able to continue contract talks while also fielding calls to gauge interests from other teams at the same time. So you can say that the rumors about franchise tagging Cooper are true.
Survey Says: This is true, the Cowboys will franchise tag Cooper.
