Oakland Raiders second-year wide receiver Amari Cooper burst on the scene in 2015, showing his accomplished skills as a rookie. However, after having a complete offseason under his belt, the pass catcher believes he’s ready to take on a bigger role along with quarterback Derek Carr.
“Yeah, I feel a lot more fresh. I was just able to focus on football and things I need to work on in the offseason, so it was a great feeling,” Cooper said, via Raiders.com.
On working with Carr:
“I mean we have a lot more time together. We have time to talk about things, talk about what we want to accomplish when we come out for practice. We have time to talk about the script because every practice is scripted. How he wants me to run certain routes. That’s the biggest thing”
