Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys have come under increased scrutiny as wide receiver Amari Cooper has found major success with the Cleveland Browns. Dallas shipped him to Cleveland during the offseason for a 5th-round pick, and questions are being raised over whether the Cowboys gave the wide receiver away too easily.

Jones responded to that talk on Friday, one day after Cooper caught his second touchdown in as many weeks for the Browns. Jones argued that the Cowboys could better allocate Cooper’s salary elsewhere, and that they had to make the deal.

Jones definitely has a point here. Wide receiver is a position of strength for Dallas, and Cooper was due to make $20 million for the Cowboys this season. Of course, there is an argument about whether the Cowboys actually wound up making better use of the money they freed up by trading Cooper for a very small return.

Optics matter to a certain degree, and the Cooper deal did not necessarily go over well in the Dallas locker room, even if the reasons were sound. The better Cooper performs with Cleveland, the more that feeling will grow.
