Cowboys acquire Amari Cooper from Raiders for 1st-rounder

Getty Images

The 1-5 Raiders reportedly began shopping Cooper earlier this month amid what appears to be a lost season.

The Cowboys are trading a first-round draft pick to the Raiders in exchange for wide receiver Amari Cooper, according to multiple reports. 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. But they have been so lacking at wide receiver this season that they are considering a move with the NFC East being as wide-open as it is.

Rapoport reported Cooper's fifth-year option for $13.9 million comes off the books for Oakland.

Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys are coming off a devastating loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, which puts them at 3-4 on the season.

Cooper was the fourth overall draft pick by the Raiders out of Alabama three years ago. With the trades, the Raiders now have $74 million in cap space and three first-round picks entering the 2019 offseason. That is elite receiver money and Cooper is not an elite receiver, and then you remember the Cowboys are giving up a first round pick that right now would be in the top 10.

The 24-year-old Cooper - five years younger than Dez Bryant - was placed in the concussion protocol after leaving Oakland's last game against Seattle on October 14. The former Texas standout's first season with Dallas was his best, with 596 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.
