Well, the Cowboys finally got the receiver they needed, but boy did they pay a lot for him. Dallas will send a first-round pick to Oakland for a year and a half of Amari Cooper. Cooper was a Pro Bowl wide receiver his first two years, but his numbers have fallen to 70 catches for 960 yards and eight touchdowns in the last season and a half (20 games). That's still pretty good, and he'll be the best receiver on the Cowboys, but he's getting out of a bad situation and into... another bad situation, at least as far as offensive scheme? Meanwhile, you only get a year and a half of Cooper, and that fifth-year option in 2019 is a top-20 salary cap number for a wide receiver. The Raiders now have three first-round picks next year: their own, Chicago's, and Dallas'.
