How the Cowboys trade for WR Amari Cooper affects the Eagles

The Dallas Cowboys made a huge move on Monday, giving up a first-round pick, to acquire wide receiver, Amari Cooper from the Raiders according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Cooper has just 22 catches for 280 yards and one touchdown in his first six games this season and is coming off a disappointing 2017 campaign, when he had 48 receptions for 680 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 games.

This seems like a pretty good haul for the Raiders, who have now collected three first rounders this season via trade.

The Cowboys desperately needed help at wide receiver.

His numbers dropped a year ago because of injuries and he was deemed expendable after six games by new Oakland head coach Jon Gruden.

The Cowboys dropped to 3-4 on Sunday with a heartbreaking 20-17 loss to the Redskins that ended with a missed field goal as time expired.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Raiders actually GOT the first-round pick back, as Dallas was apparently willing to give up their first rounder in exchange for Cooper. He is expected to be able to play when the Cowboys return from their bye week to face the Tennessee Titans on November 5.

He is signed through 2019 and is due $13.9 million next season as the Raiders had already picked up the fifth year option on his rookie deal.
