Cowboys traded a first-round pick to Raiders for WR Amari Cooper, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 22, 2018
Now the Raiders have 3 first round picks. I have no doubt that Jon Gruden will do a fantastic job in screwing those up, but that is potential franchise changing type stuff.
It will be interesting to see what this does to receiver trade market. I never expected that the Raiders would actually get a first round pick for Amari Cooper. Now he is younger and arguably more talented than guys like Demaryius Thomas and DeVante Parker, but this might drive the asking price up for those guys for a couple of days. Things will probably settle down a bit as we get closer to the trade deadline because we all know that deadlines spur action.
The Titans will see Amari Cooper the Monday night after the buy when they head to Dallas.
