Cowboys trading for Raiders WR Amari Cooper

The Dallas Cowboys have been searching for a No. 1 wide receiver even before officially releasing Dez Bryant, but now they may have their man, depending on which Amari Cooper they're getting in this semi-blockbuster trade.

Cooper was at practice in Alameda on Monday before multiple reports surfaced that he had been shipped out.

But now, including the pick the Raiders got in the Cooper deal, the franchise is sitting on three 2019 first-round picks, and many are speculating whether quarterback Derek Carr could be dealt to add to the total.

Many thought a first round pick was a lot to ask, but the Cowboys are hoping he becomes the Cooper of old, where combined for 2,223 yards in two seasons.

The Eagles obviously felt like Cooper wasn't worth losing a first round draft pick.

While the Cowboys remain in the middle of the NFC East race, sitting a game-and-a-half behind the Redskins, tied with the Eagles for second place, they're one game below.500 through seven games. But few believed the Cowboys were desperate enough to give away their future first round pick in an attempt to save their season.

Instead, Dallas tried to implement a receiver-by-committee approach that has resulted in the 29th ranked passing offense in the National Football League so far, averaging just 183 passing yards a game.

After a day off Tuesday, Raiders players will sit down in the auditorium at their facility Wednesday morning and listen to coach Jon Gruden. Recently, we'd heard rumors that Amari Cooper, Oakland's star receiver, was on the trade block, although Gruden denied knowing anything about that.

For Gruden, it's just another step in the rebuild.
