Amari Cooper Held In Check In Wild-Card Loss

Sunday, January 14, 7:53 AM

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper caught four of his five targets for 59 yards in a 45-14 loss to the Houston Texans in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday. Cooper was held in check just a few weeks after he shredded this very same Houston secondary for 265 receiving yards on Christmas Eve. The veteran receiver came into the game dealing with a heel injury that held him out of the previous two games and he did appear to be favoring it at times on the field on Saturday. Cooper remains under contract with the Browns for the 2024 season and will be returning as the team's No. 1 receiver after posting a career-high 1,250 receiving yards this past season.

Jaguars Want To Re-Sign Calvin Ridley

Tuesday, February 27, 2:33 PM

Sports Illustrated's John Shipley writes that the Jacksonville Jaguars want to re-sign impending unrestricted free-agent wide receiver Calvin Ridley this offseason, and there are plenty of reasons to think that Ridley wants to return as well. Ridley will be the top receiver on the market for several teams, so it won't be easy for Jacksonville to bring him back. Meanwhile, Shipley doesn't expect Jamal Agnew to return after being a valuable piece for the team the last three years. Ridley, 29, was suspended for all of 2022 due to gambling and returned in 2023 to catch 76 passes for 1,016 yards and eight touchdowns in 17 games. If he sticks around in Jaguars for a second straight season, he could improve on his numbers from a year ago with more chemistry with quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
