Redskins in Amari Cooper chase to 'very end'

When free agency began last month, the Washington Redskins made an aggressive offer to lure wide receiver Amari Cooper from the Dallas Cowboys. The three-time Pro Bowler decided to re-sign with Dallas, but not before reportedly turning down an offer north of $100 million from the Redskins.

Speaking to reporters for the first time since then, new Redskins coach Ron Rivera confirmed his team had offered Cooper a “substantial amount of money” to poach him from their division rival.

“Amari was someone we chased very hard, all the way up to the very end,” Rivera said.
