NFL trade rumors: Raiders want first-round pick in return for WR Amari Cooper

The Raiders have a high asking price for Amari Cooper.

Oakland has discussed dealing the 24-year-old wide receiver, according to a report from the NFL Network, but the Raiders want a first round pick in return for the two-time Pro Bowl player.

Cooper suffered a concussion in the Raiders’ 27-3 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. Oakland coach Jon Gruden discussed the trade rumors surrounding Cooper after the game.

“I haven’t heard that,” Gruden said. “I’m just sorry to have to deal with a lot of these reports. I just hope Amari is OK. Like I said, he’s going to be a big part of our pass offense, and we’ll see what happens here. Hopefully he’s all right.”

Cooper has caught 22 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown in six games this season.

Oakland originally selected Cooper out of Alabama with the fourth pick in the 2015 draft. He has tallied 19 touchdown receptions in 52 career games.

The Raiders have opened the season with a disappointing 1-5 record and will face the Colts next in Week 7 action Sunday.
