Amari Cooper is sharing the wealth.


The former Alabama wide receiver, who is now a star for the Oakland Raiders, posted a picture on Instagran of his mother and her new house and car.





I grew up in the projects, we didn’t even own a car.. The whole story is way too long and melancholic, but just know a dream can go a long way if it’s followed by faith and hard work. It took us 20+ years but now my mother has the house and car of her dreams. You deserve it mama, I love you. #JustTheBeginning
