The Indianapolis Colts will head into the 2020 offseason with cash to spend ($90M). But the big question is who they will spend it on? While their 2019 season didn’t go as planned, a huge reason for that was Andrew Luck’s retirement and the injuries. One of the main areas of concern for the team heading into free agency is wide receiver. And one name on the top of their list should be Amari Cooper.
The free-agent receiver class is not loaded with superstar talent but there are indeed enough pass-catchers where the Colts should feel comfortable with.

Amari Cooper, over the course of his career, has caught 357 passes for 5097 yards and 33 touchdowns with an average of 14.3 yards per catch. These are the numbers all teams would love to get from the No. 1 receiver. Here are three reasons why the Colts need Amari Cooper.
