first round pick in the 2019 Draft. The quarterback has not played well under Gruden, and Gruden will be in a great position to draft a quarterback next year since he is armed with three first-round picks.

Before the Cowboys finalized this deal for Cooper, another NFC East Rival was looking at him and that was the Philadelphia Eagles. He's no Odell Beckham, but he does give the Cowboys a reliable weapon that can hurt the Eagles where they're most vulnerable. A two-time Pro Bowler, Cooper became just the third player in National Football League history to record 1,000 receiving yards and 70 receptions in each of his first two seasons (2015-16). Despite having been to the Pro Bowl twice in his first two seasons, Cooper is considered to be a very inconsistent player.


This is a very headscratching decision from the Dallas Cowboys. Cooper is making a little less than $500,000 on the past year of his rookie deal this season, and he has already had his almost $15 million option for 2019 picked up by the Raiders.

Now Cooper is expected to come in and save the Cowboys season with just nine games left.


The 1-5 Raiders acquired two first-rounders from the Bears for Khalil Mack this offseason after Gruden took over and started reshaping the franchise in his image.

Whether McKenzie is on board with Gruden's overhaul is unknown - the GM on Monday did claim that he does not feel as though he's being pushed out of the way. Here are five reasons why this trade was a big mistake for Dallas.
