Rex Ryan Calls Amari Cooper a “Turd”

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

No idea where this came from, but Rex Ryan really went after Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper on Get Up this morning:

“I wouldn’t have paid this turd. No way in hell. No way way in hell would I have paid this guy.”

Jeez. Rex coming in hot with that take. Not sure about the source of the ire.

For what it’s worth, Cooper caught four of 12 targets for 24 yards in the 17-9 Eagles loss this past season. He was, however, really good in the two games prior, which Dallas somehow lost to Chicago and Buffalo even with Cooper going for 168 yards and a touchdown on 14 receptions.

And he played pretty well in the playoffs the year prior, putting up 170 yards and a score on 13 receptions against Seattle and Los Angeles. You could certainly cherry pick some poor individual performances to aid Rex’s “disappearing” take, but Amari Cooper has been pretty damn good since joining the Cowboys.

Edit –

Rex apologized. Via Pro Football Talk:

“I can’t believe I said that, used that word,” Ryan said on SportsCenter a few hours after he initially made the comment. “Obviously it was a poor choice by me to say what I said about Amari. Anybody who knows me — look, quite honestly, I think the world of every player and have a great deal of respect for every single player in the National Football League, including Amari Cooper. With that being said, I think the Cowboys overspent for Amari Cooper. The reason for it is, I don’t doubt that this is an elite player. He has those traits. But an elite player to me shows up on the road, he shows up against great corners, and he shows up in crunch time, and those are three things that Amari Cooper has not done so far in his career. In fact, I think he’s won one playoff game as a player. And all of those things are how I feel about this young man as a receiver. But what I added at the end of that, I want to apologize to Amari again and hope he accepts my apology.”
