The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly interested in acquiring Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper. The former first-round draft pick is reportedly available for the right price.

The price is reportedly a first-round draft pick.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the team has been gathering information on Cooper “as much as possible as they mull whether to make a move for the former first-round draft selection, according to sources.” The team has extensively researched him in recent days.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently said the team has not had a No. 1 receiver in a long-time. Cooper, if he gets into the right situation, could develop into one.

The 24-year-old Miami, Florida native has 22 receptions for 280 yards and one touchdown this season. He was targeted just once in last week’s 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

He suffered a concussion in the game and is presently in concussion protocol after suffering the injury in London. The Raiders are presently on their bye and return to action on October 28th against the Indianapolis Colts.

His best game of the season came in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns when he had eight receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown. This is his lone score of the season.

He only has had two games, where he surpassed 100 or more in a game, as he had 10 receptions for 116 yards in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.

Cooper is in his fourth season with the Raiders. However, this is his first season under head coach Jon Gruden.

Gruden, like he did with star defensive player Khalil Mack, would like to deal Cooper and safety Karl Joseph. Mack was traded to the Chicago Bears in a blockbuster deal.

Cooper has started 47 of 52 games with the Raiders. He has 225 receptions for 3,138 yards and 19 touchdowns.

The Cowboys, who are 3-3, are led in receiving by Cole Beasley. He has 26 receptions for 294 yards.

Geoff Swaim is the second-highest received with 180 yards.

Beasley and Tavon Austin lead the team with two touchdowns each.
