Watch: Amari Cooper stiff-arms safety on 40-yard catch

The Oakland Raiders may have found an offensive playmaker for the ages. Rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper may already be one of the best in the league.

On this 40-yard catch and run, the fourth-overall pick stiff-armed a Browns safety to the ground and then ran for 20 more yards. The catch gave Cooper over 100 yards in the first half.

It isn’t the first time Cooper has shown off his devastating stiff arm and his ability to run after the catch. Cooper used to do this kind of stuff all the time in college.
