07/31/13 - G Jonathan Cooper will make $14.5 million over four years, including a $10 million signing bonus, but he's not focused now on spending his money.
"Right now, I'm still focused on 'get your plays down and don't make mistakes,'" Cooper said after his first practice of training camp. "Once again, it comes back to trying to prove people right and not let people down. I can't really focus on the glitz and glamour of it until I've shown them I've earned this."
04/28/13 - First round pick Jonathan Cooper has drawn comparisons to great guards such as Alan Faneca, Randall McDaniel and Larry Allen. The Cardinals aren't trying to quell such comparisons; they are embracing them. "He can pull, he can get out in space and make blocks, in the alley, on screens and stuff like that," said Harold Goodwin, offensive coordinator and line coach. "Run-blocking wise, he has power. I think he did 35 reps at the combine on the bench press. The upside is there. He's a two-spot player, he can play center and he can play guard."
Cooper is aware of the pressure he's under. "Honestly, it makes me a little nervous," he said. "It's high expectations and kind of a little bit of pressure, but I also put just as much pressure on myself, and it makes me want to get to work immediately." - The Sports Xchange
