    Let the front office know what you think of the trade. Keep in mind the salary cleared off the books.

    Browns - Amari Cooper, 6th round pick swap

    Cowboys - 5th, 6th round pick swap (9 spots higher), 16 million in cap relief

    B. Considering everybody knew we would cut him getting a fifth is something. Use it on the all world punter and I'm happy.

    We are just incompetent-trading Cooper and signing Gallup is just an unbelievable move.
    The correct thing would have been to keep Cooper-sign Cedric and let Gallup and his bad knee walk.

    Eh. They got him off the books. I think Cooper wanted out so they got rid of a malcontent. The added bonus is they sent him where he can’t hurt them (or anyone for that matter).

    C. The market spoke. No other teams wanted that $20 million contract.

    You got something for him after saying he was gonna be cut, and actually found someone willing to pay him 20m$. B

    D because most of the cap savings will go to a lesser WR named Gallup who rarely sees the field :thumbdown:

    F for sure. Amari is worth more than a 5th. We'll waste that pick in a trade down to get like three 6ths or something ridiculous

    The move does nothing to improve our roster. Cap relief is little comfort as it is needed desperately for other mistakes this FO has made— and with the same leaders making decisions— more mistakes are bound to occur.

    2022 was already looking grim with a “status quo” “continuity” “run it back again” “we’re so close!” PR campaign… and yet they have managed to squeeze the last drops of hope or promise out of the season before FA even begins.

    Where do you think he goes? There's no way he is drafted in the 2nd, maybe 3rd?
