Cowboys get Amari Cooper from Raiders for 1st-round pick

Amari Cooper is heading to the Dallas Cowboys. More

Monday afternoon, the Cowboys acquired wide receiver Amari Cooper from the Oakland Raiders for a first-round pick in the 2019 draft, according to multiple media reports.

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

Nobody is offering the Carolina Panthers a first-round pick for Funchess. A win in that game would have given Dallas the lead in the NFC East.

In totality, the Cowboys gave up the most valuable asset an National Football League team has for a player who had a drop rate north of 12 percent (per Kevin Clark).

The scout followed up by saying Cooper was a different player in his first two years.

Rapoport reported Cooper's fifth-year option for $13.9 million comes off the books for Oakland.

In 2016, a $1.58 billion Powerball prize was split three ways by ticket holders from California, Florida and Tennessee. On Tuesday, that would mean a total of almost $905 million - before taxes, according to the Mega Millions website.

This is a very headscratching decision from the Dallas Cowboys. That came after teams had been contacting the Raiders about a deal since the offseason, and after the aforementioned Eagles offer.

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. But we also have to give Gruden and McKenzie a tip of the cap for their patience in getting the deal they wanted.

The Raiders will now have three 2019 first-round picks.

The biggest move, and the most controversial one, from the Raiders was dealing Khalil Mack to the Bears for a pair of first round pick, which was only made worse by Mack being great, the Raiders being terrible rushing the passer, and Gruden continuously wondering why that was. Here are five reasons why this trade was a big mistake for Dallas.

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