Cowboys do not reach deal with Amari Cooper before free agency
The Dallas Cowboys only sorted things out with one of their two key free agents before the legal tampering window opened.
The Cowboys failed to reach a long-term agreement with wide receiver Amari Cooper. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Cowboys will continue to try to bring him back, but they will no longer be the only team involved.
The #Cowboys won’t have a deal for WR Amari Cooper by the time the tampering window opens, but they’ve had talks and obviously want to bring him back. Those talks will continue.

The Cowboys used their franchise tag on quarterback Dak Prescott, as expected. That left them needing to negotiate a long-term agreement with Cooper. The wide receiver wanted to stay with Dallas, and may still, but the bidding could increase now that the other 31 teams can get involved.
