Cowboys make big trade for wide receiver Amari Cooper

Instant Analysis 1st round pick for Cooper is huge investment Instant Analysis 1st round pick for Cooper is huge investment

As part of the trade terms, the Raiders have agreed to send the Cowboys WR Amari Cooper in exchange for the selection. Dallas ranks 29th in passing yards per game with 183.1, while their rushing offense is third-best in the league with 136.9 yards per game. But few believed the Cowboys were desperate enough to give away their future first round pick in an attempt to save their season. According to the rumors, several teams including NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins were interested in Cooper. A first-round pick for a receiver who has 280 yards and just one touchdown through six games in 2018?

Gruden was never going to pay Cooper top-five receiver money - which would most likely surpass $16 million in average annual value - because the 24-year-old isn't even a top-10 wideout.

The Dallas Cowboys found their Dez Bryant replacement, it appears. He started his career with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and had two 100-yard games this season, but had just two targets and one catch since the second of those games. That came after teams had been contacting the Raiders about a deal since the offseason, and after the aforementioned Eagles offer.

Oakland, meanwhile, appears all-in on a rebuild and now will have three first-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring another first-rounder from the Chicago Bears in the Khalil Mack trade.

Gruden is basically blowing things up in Oakland, and there's a belief that Derek Carr could be the next big piece to go.

"This is where we get a great opportunity to build", McKenzie said.
