Cooper has dropped a ton a passes over the years. 1st round pick?



They couldíve just waited to draft a WR.

As bad as the raiders are, they are setting themselves up To reload fairly quickly.

They will still suck though.

That an expensive trade.

Chokeland stocking up on picks for the next 2 drafts.
That team will be completely different when they take the field in Vegas.

Talk about a franchise in the dumps. Jon Gruden may well be trolling the Raiders. $10 million per year to take them back to the mid 2000's level of suckage.

I said it the second Gruden was hired. Carr wont be in Vegas and they will cut the fat to make the move. Gruden will totally rebuild that team with CHEAP, draft picks and start completely over. Carr will be traded in the offseason and Gruden will do it in a way that he gets a vet he wants and another draft pick.

If it wasn't clear already Gruden is looking 2-3 years ahead. Whether or not 2-3 years from now is successful for him remains to be seen, but it's always been a given he wasn't going to do anything with the team this year.

Great deal for the Vegas Raiders. Not so much for Oakland.

I thought that the Mack trade was a bad one, but getting a 1st round pick for Cooper? Holy ****. They got over on the Cowboys big time. That was an extremely smart move by the Raiders. What were the Cowboys thinking?

It makes total sense for him to gut the team and rebuild. I'd hate to be season ticket holder in Oakland right now though. I'd burn my tickets, jerseys, and anything else with their logo.

That said, the real joke is on JJ and the Cowboys. A first round pick is a steep price to pay.

Mack trade was dumb since Chicago's picks wont be higher than the teens at best.

Getting a 1 for Cooper was a great deal.

There goes one less DT suitor.

You honestly think anyone is trading anything for an aging, unproductive, overpaid WR, who can't catch a cold?

After 3 dropped catches to start season he hasnít hasnít one in past 5 games and has made some difficult catches.

Continue with the usual DT bull**** and slandering.

Kelvin Benjamin was traded for a 3rd, and DT is way better than him.

Kelvin was on his rookie deal though and DT is essentially a 1 yr rental with how big his contract is. And yes, i could see a team trade for DT if Denver wants to move him.

Wow the Raiders are going to have a top 5 pick and two in the teens. I dont want them getting the Bosa kid or Ed Oliver hell with the draft capital they could get both if they trade for another top 5 pick. This draft will be loaded defensively and the Raiders have a chance to really add some blue-chippers to that side of the ball. The good thing is they need about 5 or 6 starters because their defense is trash.

Herbert could be on his way to Oakland. If they don't get the first pick they have the ammo to get him. A 1st for Cooper is stealing.

Cooper canít catch anything.

https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/loca...283.html?amp=y

Wrote Scott Barrett of PFF: ďCooper led the league in drops (18) and drop rate (20.0 percent) in his rookie season (2015), but then seemed to get past the issue in 2016, dropping only four passes. In 2017, Cooper again led the league in drop rate (17.2 percent). Not only are these numbers bad, but theyíre historically bad. Since 2007, there have only been three players to see at least 100 targets and post a drop rate of 17 percent or worse: Braylon Edwards (2007 and 2008), Greg Little (2011) and Cooper (2015 and 2017

Raiders fans didnít whine about it though.
