Cowboys WR Amari Cooper’s goal is to reach 2,000 yards in 2019

Amari Cooper, Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver Amari Cooper has some pretty lofty goals ahead of him for the 2019 NFL season: 2,000 yards.

Cooper told Pro Football Talk that he wants to reach 2,000 receiving yards in his first full season with the Cowboys.

No one has ever topped 2,000 receiving yards in NFL history. Former Detriot Lions great Calvin Johnson has come the closest with 1,964 yards during the 2012 season.

After being traded from the Oakland Raiders after six games, Cooper exploded once he found his new team.

In six games with the Raiders, Cooper caught 22 passes for 280 yards and one touchdown.

In nine games with the Cowboys, Cooper caught 53 passes for 725 yards and six touchdowns.

With a full offseason under his belt with the Cowboys once the regular season comes, Cooper will have the base to jump from and attempt to achieve a feat that has never been done in the history of the NFL.

Dallas will have a different offense come 2019, as new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is taking the reins after the team parted ways with Scott Linehan.

Cooper, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, is still in the midst of working out a contract extension with the Cowboys. If a deal does get done, he will likely become one of the highest-paid wide receivers in the entire league.

He would certainly be well worth that money if he can come anywhere close to meeting his 2,000-yard goal in 2019.
