Pharoh Cooper feels like a veteran among a young group of Rams receivers – Orange County Register

IRVINE — Only on this team, in this situation, could Pharoh Cooper be considered a veteran.

Cooper is in his second NFL training camp and has caught 14 passses in regular-season games. Among the 12 receivers on the field for the Rams at UC Irvine on Thursday, only one other guy could say that.

“I’m just kind of embracing the role of being a vet, as you say, with all the rookies coming in,” Cooper said. “I’m trying to help them learn what I experienced last year, all the little tools I can give them. I’m not the top receiver in the game right now, but there are little things I’ve learned that they can add to their game. So it’s fun.”
