Amari Cooper attended the University of Alabama, where he had a highly successful college career from 2012 to 2014. His outstanding performance in his junior year earned him the Fred Biletnikoff Award for the nation’s top receiver and he finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting.
Following his successful college career, Cooper declared for the 2015 NFL Draft and was selected fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders. In his rookie season, Cooper quickly made his mark, becoming the first rookie Raider to surpass 1,000 receiving yards and earning a Pro Bowl selection.
Cooper continued to be a key player for the Raiders until the middle of the 2018 season, when he was traded to the Dallas Cowboys. With the Cowboys, Cooper’s performance excelled even further. He became a favorite target for quarterback Dak Prescott and played an instrumental role in the Cowboys’ offense.

Rodney Peete is a former quarterback who had a long career in the NFL. He was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the 6th round of the 1989 NFL Draft.
Peete played for the Lions from 1989 to 1993 and would go on to play for several other NFL teams including the Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins, Raiders, and Panthers. Over the course of his career, Peete threw for more than 16,000 yards and 76 touchdowns.
While he never made it to a Pro Bowl, Peete was a reliable starter for several years, particularly during his time with the Lions. His longevity in the league is a rarity for a player who was not a high draft pick.
