WR Amari Cooper surprises former teammates with gifts

Cary Edmundson - USA TODAY Sports

Another reason why Alabama nation loves Amari Cooper!

His touchdown dance is a humble kneel in the end zone. Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper was the Southeastern Conference’s Offensive Player of the Year and Biletnikoff Award winner in 2014. Once a  four-star prospect, Cooper balanced a quiet personality with playmaking abilities at Alabama. With the Crimson Tide facing Clemson this week, he decided to surprise his former teammates with a few gifts.

Each item had one statement, “Finish strong. Beat Clemson.”

The average cost for a pair of Dr. Dre beats headphones is $200, but can range as high as $700. Cooper signed a five-year deal worth $22.6 million guaranteed upon the night he was selected by Oakland as the fourth overall pick. Alabama had Mark Ingram and Julio Jones observe practice and media days, and now Cooper comes through with presents.
