Can't believe they gave up the first rounder. Steep price for Cooper, we'll see how it plays out.
It's a good but desperate move for them.
Nothing wrong with trying to win now and the guy is 24 years old so he should be able to stick around for their next head coach.

I hope the Skins make a move but it better not be for a #1.

Re: Trade Deadline Moves

I wanted the skins to go after Cooper, but a 1 is ridiculous. A 3rd max - he's on the last year of his rookie deal. Next year you either need to do the 5th year option (~16M I believe) or renegotiate with the chance of losing him in FA.... wow. Gives the Raiders 3 1sts in the 2019 draft and 2 in 2020.

I would have liked to get Carlos Hyde for a 5th. In my opinion if we want a chance of making the playoffs this year, we need someone else at the RB position. Maybe Bibbs can be that answer. We're headed into week 8 and AP is already nursing a lot of injuries. He's playing really well, but as soon as he goes down we're out of options. Thompson shouldn't be run every down,and hasn't been a factor this year anyhow, Perine runs small... Bibbs has some potential but not sure I want him as my every down back.

FUK!

First round trades have worked SO WELL for JJ in the past......Joey Galloway (2 first rounders).....Roy Williams......now Amari Cooper.....

I know Cooper can play WR. I am still not convinced that Dak can play QB and get him the ball.

Re: Trade Deadline Moves

That's two days in a row a Gruden has straight fucked the Cowboys.


I guess they didn't learn their lesson after Joey Galloway or Roy Williams.

Man I can't understate how thrilled I am that the Cowboys, and not us, were the ones to give up a first rounder for Cooper.

Great, so in a few years when Cooper is on the street we'll have to listen to Skins fans begging to sign him?

Patriots gave up a 5th rounder for Josh Gordan. Why in the hell would anybody even waste a 3rd on a guy who's best attribute is being consistent about being inconsistent.

Re: Trade Deadline Moves

As others have said, better them than us. Hopefully, it works out just as well as their other trades of 1st round picks for receivers has. Really smacks of desperation to me.

Meanwhile, in other news, Oakland trades away all their starters for future draft picks. Derek Carr to Jacksonville is next.

Cooper doesn't come with the Off-the-field issues and is younger.

Don't know if this is a reliable feed or a Russian bot, but it is certainly consistent with Jon Gruden's plan so far. <sarcasm font on> Oakland GM McKenzie: "This is just fine."

Re: Trade Deadline Moves

A 1st for Cooper is a huge win by the Raiders and just makes Dallas look dumb. JJ is getting roasted on Twitter.

Gordan is a puff puff pass away from getting banned for life.

Cooper has a pair of 1000yard seasons and is only 24. If he would've ended up with Brees, he would be a ProBowler.

Fortunately for us, he has Dak.

Some people never learn. It's not a good trade at all. The guy can't catch and will want a new deal. As Matty mentioned, just draft Ridley or be patient and wait until the 19 draft. Cowboys aren't going anywhere anyway w/ Dak under center.
