Amari Cooper: Mark Davis Made Decision To Trade Me

Dec 14, 2018 11:07 AM

Amari Cooper said it was Mark Davis that decided to trade him from the Oakland Raiders to the Dallas Cowboys, and not Jon Gruden or Reggie McKenzie.

“They were getting calls about a first for [2020], and they weren’t going to do it,” Cooper said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But when Jerry Jones called about a first for [2019], he felt he had no choice.”

In his six games in Dallas, Cooper has more receiving yards (642), first downs (23), first downs on third down (11) and receptions on third down (13) than any other receiver in the NFL has the past six games.

Mark Davis: Amari Cooper Was Great Player, Didn't Work In Our System

Dec 13, 2018 9:16 AM

Mark Davis said the decision by the Oakland Raiders to trade Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys was about the fit within the system and not talent.

“He was a great, great player. We always had the fastest guy on the field no matter what,” Davis said. “It just didn’t work out in our system.”

Cooper has played extraordinarily well since his trade to the Cowboys.

Jason Witten Can't Return To Cowboys At This Point In Season

Dec 11, 2018 3:25 PM

Jason Witten cannot be reinstated to the Dallas Cowboys because he is on their reserve/retired list at this point in the season.

Players on that list can't be reinstated after Week 13.

There were reports over the weekend that Jason Garrett was attempting to convince Witten to come out of retirement. 

“There’s nothing there,” said Witten on ESPN via the Dallas Morning News. “Look, I’m enjoying where I’m at. Those guys are red hot. They don’t need to change a thing with the way they’re playing, and the way that defense is playing.

“They’re in good shape and so am I.”

Ezekiel Elliott Becomes First Offensive Player Called For Helmet Hit

Dec 10, 2018 9:00 AM

For the first time all season, an offensive player was flagged for lowering his helmet on Sunday.

Ezekiel Elliott was flagged for lowering his head to initiate contact against the Philadelphia Eagles.

He hit safety Corey Graham at the end of a 14-yard pass. Elliott missed five plays after the hit.

"I mean when you're on that sideline, I've got to protect myself," Elliott said. "And if a guy's going low, I've got to go low, too. The rule is meant for the betterment of the game. The rule is for our safety, and if there was illegal helmet-to-helmet contact on there, that's something I need to go look at and work on. That's not OK. It's just a tough play."

Through the first 13 weeks of the season, ESPN's research found that just 10 flags were thrown for lowering the helmet. Until Elliott, all were on defensive players.

Jason Garrett Has Tried To Convince Jason Witten To Return To Cowboys

Dec 9, 2018 3:28 PM

Jason Garrett has made multiple attempts this season to convince Jason Witten to come out of retirement and return to the Dallas Cowboys.

Witten has so far resisted those overtures and remains a color analyst with Monday Night Football. 

Dallas has struggled at the tight end position because of poor performance and injury.

Witten retired from football earlier this year after spending his entire 15-year career with the Cowboys.
