Dallas Cowboys researching Amari Cooper, considering trade with Oakland Raiders for WR

The Dallas Cowboys made a huge move on Monday, giving up a first-round pick, to acquire wide receiver, Amari Cooper from the Raiders according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. As part of the trade terms, the Raiders have agreed to send the Cowboys WR Amari Cooper in exchange for the selection. The Eagles had been mention as possibly having interest in the talented wide receiver, but now their focus will shift to game planning to stop Cooper, whom the Eagles will face twice in the next five weeks.

Cooper has just 22 catches for 280 yards and one touchdown in his first six games this season.

The Cowboys decided Bryant wasn't worth $12.5 million in 2018 after three subpar seasons since signing a big contract following his only All-Pro year in 2014. With the trades, the Raiders now have $74 million in cap space and three first-round picks entering the 2019 offseason. 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. The Raiders, coming off a bye week, are 1-5 as they head into a Week 8 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.


Dallas receivers have just one 100-yard game combined through seven games, by Cole Beasley in a Week 6 win over Jacksonville.

The Cowboys lost to Washington 20-17 on Sunday when Brett Maher's game-tying field goal attempt in the final seconds clanged off the upright.
