The Cowboys Massively Overpaid for Amari Cooper

The Cowboys Massively Overpaid for Amari Cooper

Cooper is the second star player traded away by new Raiders head coach Jon Gruden, following the trade of pass-rusher Khalil Mack just before the start of the season.

The Cowboys desperately needed help at wide receiver. Cooper's final year of his deal is next season and carries a $13 million cap hit.

Cooper was the fourth-overall pick by the Raiders out of Alabama three years ago.

The 24-year-old Cooper - five years younger than Bryant - was placed in the concussion protocol after leaving Oakland's last game against Seattle on October 14. Dallas is an obvious fit for the 24-year-old wideout, as the team now ranks 29th in the National Football League with just 202.4 receiving yards per game and has no legitimate receiving threats to speak of after releasing Bryant and losing Jason Witten to retirement this offseason. The Cowboys are going into their bye week, and the Raiders are returning from their break to face Indianapolis at home Sunday. Since joining the club, Cooper has tallied 225 receptions for 3,183 yards (14.1 avg.) and 19 touchdowns. The Raiders general manager, Reggie McKenzie, said on Monday his team will get the Cowboys' pick in the 2019 draft.

In 2000, Jones sent two first-round picks to Seattle for Joey Galloway before the first of three straight 5-11 seasons.

The Cowboys traded first-, third-, sixth- and seventh-round picks to the Detroit Lions in 2008 for wide receiver Roy Williams, in a move that did not work out.
