Amari Cooper excited with Deshaun Watson’s return to Browns practice

BEREA — The day Deshaun Watson returned to Browns practice, Amari Cooper was getting his usual Wednesday veteran’s day off. When Watson returns to actual game action on Dec. 4, though, you can expect he’ll be looking at the direction of Cooper often.

The quarterback and receiver were able to officially reacquaint themselves on the field Thursday, the first time they were together there since late August. Between now and Watson’s return game in Houston, Cooper knows there’ll be a lot more time spent together to get back on the same page.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson throws a touchdown pass to Amari Cooper during OTA practice on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 in Berea.

“I’ve thought about that,” Cooper said Thursday. “I mean, I didn’t practice yesterday, but after practice and everything like that, just whatever it takes, talking to him, getting more reps in after practice. It’s actually something I’m really excited about.”

The Browns are really excited about the thought of Watson throwing passes to Cooper. It’s what they pictured when they traded for the quarterback on March 18, just six days after they acquired the receiver in a trade with Dallas.
