This marks third time under Jerry Jones that Cowboys have traded a No. 1 draft pick for a veteran WR: two firsts for Joey Galloway, a first and three other picks for Roy Williams and now Amari Cooper. The first two were epic failures.

This season, Amari Cooper has 22 catches for 280 yards through 6 six games which is mediocre. He also left the last game early with a concussion. Soooo, the Dallas Cowboys traded away a first-round draft pick for a bad wide receiver who is one hit away from missing serious playing time.
Laugh out loud.
Games failing to exceed 10 receiving yards:
Amari Cooper – 12 (out of 53)
Dez Bryant – 6 (out of 116)
Larry Fitzgerald – 5 (out of 234)

Now, I think the Cowboys made the correct decision in letting Dez Bryant go. He could not get any separation from defenders which made the passing window to Dez reaaal tight. Small passing windows aren’t great for Dak Prescott who is one of the least accurate starting quarterbacks in the league.
Having said that, Dallas giving away a first round pick for a wide receiver that is objectively worse than Dez is hilariously dumb.
Only two receivers last year had drop rates over 12%: Dez Bryant and Amari Cooper.

BAHAHAHA the Cowboys seem dedicated to being mediocre both this season and now that they don’t have a first round draft pick, next season as well.
To shit on the Cowboys even further, the Cowboys gave Jon Gruden that pick. Of all people to bail out, Jon Gruden is the one guy who doesn’t deserve it. After trading away the best defender in the league for 2 first round draft picks, Gruden somehow manages to pass Go and collect another draft pick.
The Raiders might fuck around and end up having an amazing draft haul next summer and I blame Dallas for taking away my Gruden jokes next season. I’m pissed at Dallas. I mean, I’m always pissed at Dallas. But now that they’ve taken jokes from me, I’m LIVID.
Amari Cooper 22 catches, 280 yards, 1 TD
Sterling Shepard 31 catches, 341 yards, 2 TD
