Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper has built up some size and strength in the offseason, something he feels will make him even faster and stronger to go deep a lot more in the coming 2017 season…
Cooper, currently at 217 lbs, plans to shed a little during camp.
“I definitely would love for my quarterback to trust me, even when I don’t really look like I’m open, to throw it up there and depend on me to make a play,” he said, per ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez. “As a skill player on offense, you want the ball. Every play, if you can.”
“You actually do get faster when you get stronger, in your lower body… I always get bigger in the offseason because I’m training. Hopefully it translates on to the field.”
