The Cowboys sent a first-round pick to the Raiders for receiver Amari Cooper. The move comes after Dallas’ latest loss on Sunday to the Redskins.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie confirmed the trade Monday. Oakland will now have three first-round picks in 2019 after also getting the Chicago Bears’ selection in last month’s Khalil Mack trade.
“I got a call from [Cowboys vice president] Stephen Jones this morning, he put it on the table, what he wanted to do, and he wanted the player, and he gave me the pick, and that’s what it came down to,” McKenzie said.
A lot of people have given their opinions on the deal. Many saying the Cowboys got the short end of the deal. Former Cowboy Dez Bryant isn’t among those giving his opinion. He was asked about the deal on Twitter and responded that he has no feelings about the deal.
I feel no type of way.. congrats to coop but that’s none of my business… I’m a fan of league https://t.co/vuh3vLavQY

It’s hard to believe Dez doesn’t have any thoughts on the Cowboys having to trade for receiver after cutting him before the season. Especially when he is still without a team.
