Dynasty Oakland Traders The Dynasty Ramifications of Amari Cooper in Dallas We break down the trade of Amari Cooper to Dallas

Former NFL defensive back Jerraud Powers first reported the deal, which was later confirmed by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, ESPN's Adam Schefter and others.

Cooper was the fourth-overall pick by the Raiders out of Alabama three years ago. With their season all but officially flushed down the toilet, this team does not need Cooper, who has been seriously underwhelming of late. Instead, the Cowboys sit at 3-4, tied with the Eagles for second place.

Jerry Jones really wanted to acquire Amari Cooper. The trade of Cooper makes it clear the Raiders are blowing things up and restarting in year one of the new Jon Gruden era. And Cowboys receivers haven't made many big plays in their first season without Bryant and retired tight end Jason Witten, the club leader in catches. Cooper has just 22 catches for 280 yards and one TD in six games.

DeRisi was arrested in 2015 for unrelated threatening voice messages, according to the complaint against him. Capitol Police used phone and bank records to trace the calls back to DeRisi, according to the affidavit.

Cooper has been in concussion protocol since Oakland's loss to the Seahawks last week in London.

While the compensation was much better than most expected, it now seems that the downtrodden Raiders are going into fire-sale mode ahead of the October 30 trade deadline. They gave up two first-round picks for Joey Galloway in 2000 and multiple picks, including a first-rounder, for Roy Williams in 2008.

The Cowboys went all-in on giving Prescott the best wide receiver they could trade for, sacrificing their 2019 first round selection in order to do so. Cooper has been held under 30 yards receiving in 13 of his past 26 games.
