rumors started circulating that the

A week ago Womens Fred Warner Jersey , Oakland Raiders were looking to trade wide receiver Amari Cooper and safety Karl Joseph, among others. This past weekend, there were reports the Raiders were ready to deal anybody if the price was right.It looks like we have the first deal. The Raiders are trading Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson. It appears to be for a first round pick, according to Adam Schefter. That’s a steep price, but he is a significant upgrade to their wide receiver depth chart. Their leading pass catcher is Cole Beasley , with 33 receptions for 350 yards and two touchdowns. It’s been a mess in Dallas, and while some blame rests on Dak Prescott’s shoulders, some rests on the personnel department.Cooper is on track to surpass his numbers last season, but would fall well short of his first two seasons, when he had back-to-back seasons over 70 catches and 1,000 yards. Derek Carr has been a mess of late Womens Tress Way Jersey , and the Raiders as a whole are a disaster this season.The San Francisco 49ers need help at wide receiver, but a first round pick in 2019 would not make any sense given how high the pick is likely to be. The Raiders now have three first round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft: their own pick, and those of the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears (Khalil Mack). Considering they’ll already be drafting near the top, they have some serious options. The warning signs were there, from the moment Reuben Foster became one of the very rare draft prospects to be sent home from the Scouting Combine. Concerns about his temperament and a dilute urine sample (which counted as a positive drug test) caused plenty of teams to steer clear of the former Alabama linebacker.But not the 49ers. After landing him at the bottom of round one, the 49ers boasted that they would have taken Foster with the third overall pick in the draft Youth Weston Richburg Jersey , if the Bears had selected Solomon Thomas in the wake of a San Fran/Chicago flip-flop of the second and third overall picks.Foster retained a high level of esteem among the 2017 draft prospects even after the 49ers explored all of the various red flags and rabbit holes of Foster’s character.“I鈥檓 proud of that,鈥?G.M. John Lynch said last year regarding the vetting of Foster. 鈥淲e were exhaustive in our getting to know the kid. We met with him at the Combine. We had him out here for a visit. Kyle [Shanahan] and I both spent a lot of time on the phone with him, facetiming. And then, I think when we really started to zero in and get really serious, we sent [vice president of football affairs] Keena Turner and Pastor Earl [Smith] down to Tuscaloosa to meet with Reuben for two days and they had a tremendous visit.”So now the 49ers, who made an unconventional decision to pluck Lynch from the broadcast booth despite no scouting experience , need to make some tough internal assessments regarding how they got it so wrong with Foster. Because they clearly did, getting only 16 games out of a player they’d hoped would become a cornerstone of the team’s defense for years to come.
