Amari Cooper is convinced he wouldn't have been able to put up the numbers he did in 2018 had he not moved from Oakland to Dallas.

"I don't think it was a good fit for me," Cooper said. "I don't think I was really able to showcase my skills there for whatever reasons, I'll call it extenuating circumstances. But for whatever reason, I wasn't able to reach my heights and I kind of knew that I needed to be gone in order to do some of the things that I wanted to do as an NFL player...
