Cowboys Trade First-Round Pick To Raiders For Amari Cooper

Amari Cooper is heading to the Dallas Cowboys. More

The Dallas Cowboys have made a major trade to bolster their beleaguered wide receiver group. With the trades of Cooper and Khalil Mack, the Raiders will reportedly now have $74 million in cap space entering the 2019 off-season, as well as three first round picks. Cooper gives the Cowboys a legitimate No. 1 receiver option, while the Raiders continue to stockpile first-round picks.

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. Last year, in 14 games, he only had 680 yards receiving.

But of all the teams that need wide receivers, the most intriguing is Dallas, and it would not be the first time that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has dealt for a receiver before the league's trade deadline. At 3-4, they're tied with the Eagles in the NFC East, 1.5 games behind the 4-2 Redskins.

Moscow has suspended all manned space launches, while Rogozin has ordered a state commission to investigate what went wrong. It had taken off, as usual, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the country's south.

The Cowboys' trio of offseason additions - Allen Hurns, Deonte Thompson and Tavon Austin - have combined for 32 catches, 391 yards and 3 touchdowns as the receiver snaps have been split relatively evenly these first seven games.

The Cowboys have a bye in Week 8, too, so Cooper will have a little extra time to get acclimated in Dallas.

In 2000, Jones sent two first-round picks to Seattle for Joey Galloway before the first of three straight 5-11 seasons. In six games this season, Cooper has 22 catches for 280 yards and one touchdown. 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.
