FRISCO, Texas - The Dallas Cowboys made a move to benefit quarterback Dak Prescott by acquiring wide receiver Amari Cooper from the Oakland Raiders for a 2019 first-round pick. To even think about the playoffs, the Cowboys, the same Cowboys who are 0-4 and the road and haven't won consecutive games this season, will have to turn it on after their bye this week and go 6-3 down the stretch.

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. While the 33-year-old has flashed upside this season, it's going to be worth watching to see what he can do as the go-to receiver.

Cooper was the fourth overall draft pick by the Raiders out of Alabama three years ago. Cooper is making a little less than $500,000 on the past year of his rookie deal this season, and he has already had his almost $15 million option for 2019 picked up by the Raiders.

For Gruden, dealing his most accomplished receiver doesn't compare to the preseason trade that sent two-time All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack to Chicago.

He has just 70 catches for 960 yards since the start of 2016 as his inconsistency has become a bigger problem.

And there is still star potential for Cooper despite his sub-par 2018 as he had 155 catches for 2,223 yards and 11 touchdowns over his first two seasons and made the Pro Bowl following each of them. The former Texas standout's first season with Dallas was his best, with 596 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.
