Raiders Trade WR Amari Cooper To Cowboys For 2019 1st-Rd Pick


Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that the Raiders are trading WR Amari Cooper to the Cowboys on Monday.

  • According to Schefter, the Cowboys are sending the Raiders a 2019 first-round pick for Cooper.

Over the weekend, Adam Schefter reported that the Cowboys had been calling around to people who know Cooper and gathering as much information as they can about him.

The Redskins and Colts reportedly inquired about Cooper’s availability as well, but the Cowboys were the team to watch all along.

Cooper, 24, is a former No. 4 overall pick by the Raiders out of Alabama in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is entering the final year of his four-year, $22.7 million fully guaranteed rookie contract and is set to earn a base salary of  $705,000 for 2018 to go along with a $2,825,426 roster bonus.

The Raiders picked up Cooper’s fifth-year option back in April, which will cost them $13,924,000 for the 2019 season.

In 2018, Cooper has appeared in five games for the Raiders and caught 22 passes for 280 yards receiving and one touchdown. He has also rushed for nine yards on one carry.
