The Dallas Cowboys enter the offseason with a strong desire to re-sign top receiver Amari Cooper and the feeling is clearly mutual. While Cooper could ultimately have the option to sign with another team in free agency, the Pro Bowl receiver’s heart resides in Dallas.

During an appearance on 105.3 The Fan, Cooper made his desire to remain with the Cowboys obvious. From the organization itself to everything that comes from wearing the star on his helmet, the 25-year-old seems to embrace it all.

“I love being a Dallas Cowboy. I love everything about it,” Cooper said, via 105.3 The Fan (h/t Jon Machota). “Prime time games. I love it here in Frisco. Just the aura of being a Dallas Cowboy. You can’t beat it. I want to be a Dallas Cowboy for life.”

Coming off another excellent season with 1,189 receiving yards and eight touchdowns, Cooper wants to remain in Dallas. Fortunately for both sides, contract talks are reportedly expected to intensify soon.

Cooper also made it clear that he would welcome the opportunity to play with Dez Bryant. The 31-year-old receiver has looked incredible in workouts and owner Jerry Jones is open to a reunion. If the opportunity presents itself, Cooper would take advantage of sharing the field with Bryant.

The Cowboys will certainly make bringing back Cooper and quarterback Dak Prescott as their top priorities. Once those moves are made, maybe we’ll see Bryant get the reunion he and so many others are hoping for.
