Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper wasn't in attendance for the start of mandatory minicamp Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Cooper - who'll be subject to over $100,000 in fines if he skips all three days - is entering the final season on his current contract. The 29-year-old is set to earn $20 million in 2024 as part of a five-year, $100-million deal signed while a member of the Dallas Cowboys.

The wideout market has exploded this offseason, with Amon-Ra St. Brown, A.J. Brown, and Justin Jefferson all resetting the top of the position.

Cleveland also gave Jerry Jeudy a three-year, $58-million extension after acquiring him from the Denver Broncos in March.

Cooper set a career high with 1,250 yards last season to lead the Browns in receiving for the second straight campaign since arriving via trade in the 2022 offseason.
