Cowboys acquire WR Cooper from Raiders for first-rounder

Jon Gruden Raiders now loaded with 3 1st-round picks in 2019 NFL draft

Today, the purge continued as they shipped the enigmatic and highly inconsistent Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for the Cowboys' first round pick in the 2019 Draft. During his three full seasons with the Raiders, Cooper made the Pro Bowl twice, in 2015 and 2016, before taking a small step back during what was a down year for the team as a whole in 2017.

Those teams also don't play in the NFC East, which the Redskins lead with a 4-2 record. He's no Odell Beckham, but he does give the Cowboys a reliable weapon that can hurt the Eagles where they're most vulnerable. Cooper has just 22 catches for 280 yards and one touchdown this season. It's his fourth season and his fifth year option next year would have a base salary of $13.9 million.

The good news for the Cowboys in that regard: If anybody can help Cooper get back to his 2016 form as an outside threat, it's Linehan, who worked with Bryant in Dallas after working with Calvin Johnson for five years in Detroit. The Cowboys are (heavily) banking on the idea that Cooper can do just that.

Jon Gruden has taken ample heat for his tire-fire of a tenure thus far with the Oakland Raiders, but on Monday, he finally landed his first big win. "Chucky" had already traded away the team's best player in Khalil Mack, an elite pass rusher in his prime, hurting the team's chances of winning in the short-term, but giving them a plethora of premium picks with which to rebuild the team in Gruden's image. Oakland is tanking like none other, sitting at 1-5 and now armed with three first-round picks for the 2019 draft.
