Cowboys Trade For Wide Receiver Cooper

Through seven games, they rank 29th in passing offense with 183.1 yards per game.

Cooper is in the NFL's concussion protocol, but the Raiders are on a bye this week and don't play again until October 28 against Indianapolis. What makes that number even more alarming was the fact he had over 100 yards in only two games and much of his statistical output was due to an 11/210/2 game he had against the Chiefs in early October past year.

The fourth-year receiver has 22 receptions for 280 yards and a touchdown in six games for the Raiders this season.

The Cowboys have gone with a committee-like approach at receiver this season since parting ways with former No. 1 option Dez Bryant in April.

It ended up being the worst trade in team history as Williams caught just 94 passes for 1,324 yards and 13 touchdowns in 40 games with the Cowboys.

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

The Cowboys are not alone; the Raiders have heard inquiries on Cooper from, among others, the Washington Redskins and Indianapolis Colts, according to a league source.

Coach Jon Gruden, who will now have three first-round picks in 2019, is in the first year of a 10-year contract and can afford to play the waiting game.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed the deal, and reports Dallas will be sending a first round pick back to Oakland for Cooper. In exchange, they received the Cowboys' first-round pick in the 2019 draft.
