Cowboys Trade for Raiders WR Amari Cooper

But they have been so lacking at wide receiver this season that they are considering a move with the NFC East being as wide-open as it is.

The Cowboys' revamped receiver corps has struggled to get on the same page with Prescott and is considered a collection of No. 2 and No. 3 receivers while lacking a bonafide No. 1 threat.

Despite the promise offered by a still-young player who posted 1,000-plus receiving yards in his first two National Football League seasons, there are a couple of question marks around Cooper as he arrives in Dallas. A first-round pick for a receiver who has 280 yards and just one touchdown through six games in 2018?

Dallas receivers have just one 100-yard game combined through seven games, by Cole Beasley in a Week 6 win over Jacksonville.

His numbers dropped a year ago because of injuries and he was deemed expendable after six games by new Oakland head coach Jon Gruden. ‏ Although Raiders head coach Jon Gruden and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones are the final decision-makers on the respective teams, McKenzie said he handled the deal with Cowboys executive Stephen Jones, Jerry's son.

Gruden has not blinked through a season in which a 1-5 record has only amplified the criticism he has received for trading away star edge-rusher Khalil Mack before the season.

Oakland figures to have a good shot at the No. 1 overall pick in 2019, and now has three first-rounders with the Cooper trade.

The disappointing Oakland Raiders can be looked at in a lot of different ways right now, but boring clearly isn't one of them.

This last time a desperate Cowboys team made a midseason trade for a receiver came in 2008 when they gave up first- and third-round draft picks to acquire receiver Roy Williams from the Detroit Lions. Cooper has 3,183 yards and 19 touchdowns in three-plus seasons.

Nobody is offering the Carolina Panthers a first-round pick for Funchess.
