How the Cowboys trade for WR Amari Cooper affects the Eagles

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 are off to a 3-4 start and have been looking for some receiving help for quarterback Dak Prescott. After posting back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons to begin his tenure in Oakland, Cooper was only able to muster 680 yards and seven scores past year in 14 contests.

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

In a statement Sunday, the governments said attacks on journalists are unacceptable and "of utmost concern to our three nations". Khashoggi has been the subject of news reports since his disappearance after a visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

Amari Cooper #89 of the Oakland Raiders runs after a catch against the Kansas City Chiefs during their National Football League game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on October 19, 2017 in Oakland, California. What makes that number even more alarming was the fact he had over 100 yards in only two games and much of his statistical output was due to an 11/210/2 game he had against the Chiefs in early October previous year.

Rookie Michael Gallup has improved steadily with productive lines in each of the last two games, including his first career touchdown catch Sunday against Washington. The Raiders, coming off a bye week, are 1-5 as they head into a Week 8 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

Cooper is owed about $14 million for next season, the previous year of his rookie deal.

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.

The disappointing Oakland Raiders can be looked at in a lot of different ways right now, but boring clearly isn't one of them. Cooper has 3,183 yards and 19 touchdowns in three-plus seasons. Galloway, drafted eighth overall by the Seahawks in 1995, didn't have a 1,000-yard season in four years with the Cowboys.

This will be the third time since 2000 the Cowboys have traded a top pick for a veteran receiver.
