The Cowboys were expected to release Cooper prior to March 20, which is when his $20 million 2022 salary became fully guaranteed, but ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that several teams had discussed Cooper's availability in a potential trade, and now the Browns will make the move. Cooper has a three-year, $60 million contract remaining that will head to Cleveland, the Cowboys will take on just $6 million in dead cap in 2022 and clear $16 million in salary-cap space.
The Cowboys can now focus their efforts on extending wide receivers Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson, and edge defender Randy Gregory. Dallas used the franchise tag on tight end Dalton Schultz, which carries a value of $10.913 million.
