Amari Cooper trade grades: Worthy risk for Cowboys, no-brainer for Raiders

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.

The Cowboys are off to a 3-4 start and have been looking for some receiving help for quarterback Dak Prescott. The 24-year old wide receiver earned Pro Bowl honors in his first two seasons with Oakland, racking up more than 1,000 receiving yards in both years, but his 2017 struggles have continued into this season.

Cooper is a two-time pro-bowler.

Cooper is owed about $14 million for next season, the past year of his rookie deal.

That apparently was a resounding yes for Jones, whose team ranks 29th in passing yards and 28th in passing touchdowns this season - yet sits just 1 1/2 games behind Washington in the division standings with more than half the season left to play.

The 24-year-old Cooper - five years younger than Dez Bryant - was placed in the concussion protocol after leaving Oakland's last game against Seattle on October 14.

The DfT said it would work with airlines and airports "to look at what more can be done to deal with disruptive passengers". This included Shadow Transport spokesperson Karl Turner who said he will continue to raise the incident in parliament.

Gruden has not blinked through a season in which a 1-5 record has only amplified the criticism he has received for trading away star edge-rusher Khalil Mack before the season.

But of all the teams that need wide receivers, the most intriguing is Dallas, and it would not be the first time that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has dealt for a receiver before the league's trade deadline.

The disappointing Oakland Raiders can be looked at in a lot of different ways right now, but boring clearly isn't one of them. His numbers have trended down the last two years - he caught 22 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown in the first six games with Oakland this season - but he's tallied 19 touchdowns in his career.

About this time 10 years ago, the Cowboys got Roy Williams from Detroit for three draft picks, including a first-rounder.

The next player who could be on the move is 2016 first-round pick, Karl Joseph. Williams was drafted seventh overall by the Lions in 2004.
