Vikings signed WR Josh Cooper.

Cooper was cut by the receiver-needy Browns last month. He played for new Vikings OC Norv Turner in Cleveland last season, catching nine balls for 60 yards. Cooper will battle for one of the final spots on the 53-man roster.
Fri, Jun 13, 2014 11:31:00 AM

Browns waived WR Josh Cooper, WR Tori Gurley, FB Chris Pressley and TE Andre Smith.

Cooper was waived/injured, and will revert to injured reserve. The Browns continue to subtract, rather than add, bodies at the receiver position. It's an odd strategy with Josh Gordon facing an indefinite suspension, but neither Cooper nor Gurley are intriguing talents at this point in their respective careers. Shuttled back and forth between the practice squad and active roster last season, Cooper caught nine passes across five games.
Mon, May 19, 2014 05:28:00 PM

Josh Cooper caught five passes for 34 yards in Cleveland's Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

Cooper's eight targets were second only to Josh Gordon. Cooper ran as the Browns' No. 2 receiver for the final two weeks of the season, moving ahead of drop-prone Greg Little on the depth chart. A second-year undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State, Cooper will be in the mix for slot duties next season.

Josh Cooper caught four passes for 26 yards in Week 16 versus the Jets.

Cooper finished second on the team behind Josh Gordon with his six targets. Cooper manned the slot with Davone Bess (personal, NFI) done for the season. He's not a long-term option for the Browns. Cooper is a No. 4 receiver.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 05:32:00 PM

Browns signed WR Josh Cooper off their practice squad.

Cooper replaces Armanti Edwards, who was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury Wednesday. Brandon Weeden's old friend from Oklahoma State won't get any preferential treatment from Jason Campbell if he's even active Sunday.
Wed, Nov 20, 2013 10:25:00 AM

Browns waived WR Josh Cooper.

Cooper was BFFs with Brandon Weeden, who is no longer the starting QB in Cleveland. Active for just one game this year, Cooper did not catch a pass.
Mon, Sep 30, 2013 05:33:00 PM

Browns declared WR Josh Cooper inactive for Sunday's Week 15 game against the Redskins.

Cooper is a healthy scratch for the third straight week. The Browns continue to operate as one of the healthiest teams in the league and are favored to beat the RG3-less Redskins. Their inactives: CB Trevin Wade, S Eric Hagg, RB Brandon Jackson, TE Brad Smelley, FB Owen Marecic and OL Jarrod Shaw.
Sun, Dec 16, 2012 11:48:00 AM

Browns declared WR Josh Cooper, S Eric Hagg, CB Trevin Wade, RB Brandon Jackson, DT Ronnie Cameron, OL Jarrod Shaw, and FB Owen Marecic inactive for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Cleveland didn't deactivate a single injured player. They're one of the NFL's healthiest teams at this stage of the season, and will be a dangerous spoiler team down the stretch. They're playing the Chiefs today.
Sun, Dec 9, 2012 11:41:00 AM

Browns declared WR Josh Cooper, RB Brandon Jackson, CB Dimitri Patterson, FS Usama Young, S Ray Ventrone, DT Ronnie Cameron, and OL Jarrod Shaw inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Young is out with a head injury, so Tashaun Gipson is going to start at free safety. The rest of the bunch is relatively healthy.
Sun, Dec 2, 2012 03:01:00 PM

The Browns are expected to "continue to find playing time" for WR Josh Cooper.

Cooper was targeted eight times by Brandon Weeden in Week 7, and has six catches for 92 yards in two games since being promoted from the practice squad. With Travis Benjamin and Mohamed Massaquoi (questionable, hamstring) returning from injuries, the Browns will continue to carry Cooper on their active roster. It's possible Cooper could find himself in a full-time role at slot receiver, but he isn't on the fantasy radar.
Sat, Oct 27, 2012 07:47:00 PM

Browns WR Josh Cooper caught four passes for 53 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss to Indianapolis.

The undrafted rookie slot receiver was targeted eight times, and now has six catches for 92 yards in the past two games. Cooper is Cleveland's undrafted rookie slot receiver, playing in between Greg Little and Josh Gordon.
Sun, Oct 21, 2012 04:33:00 PM

Browns promoted WR Josh Cooper from their practice squad.

Travis Benjamin tried to practice Friday, but was "very limited." The Browns are down to Greg Little, Josh Gordon, and Josh Cribbs at wide receiver. Cooper, a college teammate of Brandon Weeden, is expected to see snaps in the slot versus the Bengals. He's not a fantasy option until proven otherwise.
Fri, Oct 12, 2012 10:39:00 AM

Browns waived or released WR Josh Cooper, DT Brian Schaefering, S David Sims, CB James Dockery, WR Rod Windsor, G Jarrod Shaw, DL William Green, and LB Ben Jacobs.

Cooper was competing with Jordan Norwood for slot duties. Per beat writer Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns hope to stash Cooper on the practice squad. A three-year veteran, Schaefering appeared in all 16 games last season as a rotational lineman.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 06:04:00 PM

Browns slot WRs Jordan Norwood and rookie Josh Cooper are likely vying for one roster spot.

If the Browns don't keep six receivers, both are on the outside looking in. Rookies Josh Gordon and Travis Benjamin are already listed as the second-team wideouts on the depth chart. Josh Cribbs has the fifth spot locked up due to special teams prowess. Cooper has been quiet in camp after an impressive spring.
