Last week, Dallas Cowboys made a bold move by shopping for the former Oakland Raiders wide recipient Amari Cooper. At that time, it seemed as if it was just the start of a massive trading period that was full of the gamer movement, but a week or so later it seems we can get the opposite.
With just a few hours to reach the deadline, Jay Glazer reported that the price tag on Cooper (Dallas 201
9 first round picking, currently slated to No. 12 in total) scares other teams of doing business because the price tag rides on other players around league.
Yes it tracks.
As the cowboys have repeatedly noted, Cooper is still only 24 years old and at a certain level he is a “proven” talent. However, when a player who has fought for the better part of two full seasons and just one year and changed after his deal, he becomes an unreasonable price tag (about $ 14 million, including Cooper fifth year) moved to the middle-first round pick Yes, it will throw things off a bit.
Other recipients who have been more productive than Cooper recently but are slightly older, such as Golden Tate, or have better results but also struggle like Demaryius Thomas may have been gettable for mid-round picks as recently as last week but has seen the question because of what Oakland could get for Cooper.
