Amari Cooper looking for more deep balls in 2017

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.”
