Cowboys wideout Amari Cooper has joined Giants RB Saquon Barkley in the halcyon of athletes who have granted very generous gifts to an entire squad. TMZ has reported that Amari bought his QB and the entire Cowboys receiving corps custom diamond-encrusted dog tags.

Cooper went to Gabriel the Jeweler for the custom gift, which was then shared on Instagram. Gabriel has previously done work for Odell Beckham, Davante Adams, and Aaron Donald. Each piece displays the jersey number of its recipient and the word “DAWGS” is etched across the top.

A video of the tags was posted to the web by TMZ sports. The expensive gift is nothing less than flashy. If you live in Dallas, you may want to wear sunglasses to avoid the glare.

Cooper and the Cowboys improved to 6-1 on the season on Sunday. Dallas edged the Minnesota Vikings without star QB Dak Prescott who was out with an injury. Backup Cooper Rush went 24/40 for 325 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Cooper pulled in eight catches for 122 yards and a touchdown.

It is notable that Cooper ordered the bling before his teammates helped him lead the way to the improbably victory. If they didn’t deserve a pricy gift before, they do now. It was a remarkable performance in the face of adversity.

Amari Cooper is having a solid 2021 campaign. Through Sunday’s game, he’s caught 38 balls for 495 yards and 5 touchdowns. Cooper started his career in 2015 after the Raiders drafted him fourth overall out of Alabama. He joined the Cowboys in 2018.
