The Oakland Raiders have already traded stud pass-rusher Khalil Mack. Could another former top pick be on the way out as well?
It seems like it. On FOX today, Jay Glazer reported that Oakland is discussing trading a pair of former first-round picks.
One of them is wide receiver Amari Cooper. The No. 4 overall pick in 2015, Cooper’s production has cratered the last two seasons.
Through five games this year, he has just 22 receptions for 280 yards and one touchdown. He was limited to only 48 catches last year, for 680 yards and seven touchdowns.
Per Glazer, Cooper and 2016 first-round pick Karl Joseph could be on the move.

If both Cooper and Joseph get traded, that means the Raiders will have shipped off their first-round picks from 2014-16. Not ideal.
Oakland is 1-4 through five games and has been pretty dysfunctional so far. It hasn’t been a good return to the NFL for Jon Gruden.
The Raiders take on the Seattle Seahawks today.
