Amari Cooper has his eyes on a career-high vs. Steelers

Read Time:1 Minute, 48 Second

The Cleveland Browns are set to close out their season against the Pittsburgh Steelers (although Jadeveon Clowney may not join them). And wide receiver Amari Cooper is just 80 yards away from hitting his personal best in career yards. Cooper was asked if reaching a new career-high in receiving yards was an important mark for him, and he did not deny it. Coming off of a two-touchdown performance against the Washington Commanders, Cooper had this to say about eclipsing his career-high in receiving yards:

“Of course. I would be lying if I said it wasn’t. Every year you want to get better because like they say, if you are not getting better, you are getting worse. You don’t work real hard in the offseason and the preseason, to get worse. Yeah, it is something that is very important to me.”

Here are other highlights from Cooper’s press availability today

“No, I wouldn’t say so, but maybe (laughter). I don’t know. I haven’t really reflected on it like that.”

“There are a lot of plays I want back. That drop on fourth down that I had on the sideline. The touchdown that I slipped and it kind of hit my chest in the snow. I can name a few.”

“It has been cool. Scored a lot of touchdowns and made some plays. I am really the type of player that oftentimes reflects back on the plays I didn’t make. I definitely feel like I left plays out there, but that is why we practice and that is why we work hard in the offseason so we can come back the next season and be better. That is what I plan on doing.”

“Ultimately, obviously we set a big goal which was to make the playoffs and win the division. We kind of fell short of that. As one of the leaders on the team, I take responsibility for it. Hopefully, come back and we can accomplish that.”
