Amari Cooper is determined to build off the success he had last season as a rookie in Oakland.
The former Alabama wide receiver and first-round draft pick was present during the team’s first session of pre-training camp workouts on Sunday. An event that’s normally slotted for rookies, newcomers and quarterbacks saw a second-year wide out, who wants to continue building chemistry within the offense. The Raiders released a video through social media, and one that captures Cooper (No. 89) running routes and catching passes from quarterback Derek Carr.

The duo, known simply as AC/DC, hopes to guide Oakland to the playoffs this season for the first time since 2002. Cooper totaled 1,070 receiving yards and six touchdowns on 72 catches in 2015.
All the veterans are scheduled to report to training camp on Thursday, July 28.
