DALLAS, TX (SPORTSRADIO 610) - The Dallas Cowboys have traded for Amari Cooper. 

The Oakland Raiders will receive a first-round draft pick in exchange for the Pro-Bowl wide receiver. 

When Jon Gruden accepted the head coach position with the Raiders, he called Cooper the "focal point" of the team. 

In the first two seasons with the Raiders, the 24-year old Cooper eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards and was a Pro-Bowler in both years. 

Gruden has traded away the Raiders best defensive player, Khalil Mack, and arguably the best skills player within two months.
