Jon Gruden is shipping another young talent out of town.
The Dallas Cowboys are acquiring receiver Amari Cooper in a trade with the Oakland Raiders, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Oakland will receive a first-round pick from Dallas in the deal, Rapoport added.
Cooper will have the Week 8 bye to get acclimated and will likely slide in as the team's No. 1 option in the passing game. He has been an enigma over the past season-plus, but he's still just 24-years-old and has two, 1,000-yard seasons on his resume. From a rest-of-season standpoint, there is some upside here, though he's joining a new (typically run-heavy) offense in the middle of the season, so there's some downside as well. Consider him a WR4 with WR3 upside if things break his way. If Dak Prescott peppers him with nine-plus targets per game, which is unlikely, he could achieve WR2 value by season's end.
