Report: Eagles Offered a Second-Round Draft Pick For Amari Cooper
There will be a new wide receiver in the NFC East, and he won't be playing for the Eagles. That's because the Dallas Cowboys acquired Amari Cooper from the Raiders in exchange for a first-round pick.
However, its not from a lack of trying to acquire Cooper, according to NFL Network reporter Mike Silver, the Eagles offered the Raiders a second-round pick in exchange for the wide receiver.
So would Cooper have helped the Eagles?
The Eagles lack that big-play threat, and Cooper has had a case of the drops since being selected with the fourth overall pick in the first-round by the Raiders in 2015. Through six games this season he has just 22 catches for 280 yards and one downtown, averaging just 12.7 yards per catch.
Hardly eye-popping numbers, if the Cowboys wanted to give a first-round pick for Cooper, you're probably better off letting them have him.
