The Dallas Cowboys have been searching for a No. 1 wide receiver even before officially releasing Dez Bryant, but now they may have their man, depending on which Amari Cooper they're getting in this semi-blockbuster trade. With the trades of Cooper and Khalil Mack, the Raiders will reportedly now have $74 million in cap space entering the 2019 off-season, as well as three first round picks.

Cooper was the fourth-overall pick by the Raiders out of Alabama three years ago.

He is signed through 2019 and is due $13.9 million next season as the Raiders had already picked up the fifth year option on his rookie deal.

Jon Gruden continues to trade away the Oakland Raiders roster and now QB Dak Prescott gets another weapon on the offensive side of the ball. The Cowboys are a game and a half back of Washington in the NFC East after losing in miserable fashion on Sunday in D.C., and if this trade doesn't turn things around for them offensively it could look really bad.

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

Cole Beasley leads the Cowboys with 33 catches for 350 yards and two touchdowns. He is expected to be able to play when the Cowboys return from their bye week to face the Tennessee Titans on November 5. In 2017, Cooper notched 48 catches and 680 yards with seven touchdowns before watching his production slip further to start 2018, with 22 receptions and 280 yards, accompanied by a single score. They gave up two first-round picks for Joey Galloway in 2000 and multiple picks, including a first-rounder, for Roy Williams in 2008.
