Amari Cooper says Mark Davis made decision to trade him

Raiders owner Mark Davis said Wednesday Amari Cooper was a “great, great player” who didn’t fit Jon Gruden’s offense. Cooper scoffed at that a day later.

The Cowboys receiver said it was Davis, not then-General Manager Reggie McKenzie or Gruden, who traded him. Cooper contends that Gruden didn’t know about the trade, and McKenzie didn’t want to make it.

“They were getting calls about a first for [2020], and they weren’t going to do it,” Cooper said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But when Jerry Jones called about a first for [2019], he felt he had no choice.”

In his six games in Dallas, Cooper has more receiving yards (642), first downs (23), first downs on third down (11) and receptions on third down (13) than any other receiver in the NFL has the past six games. Cooper also has six receiving touchdowns, which ties for the most of any receiver the past six games.

It won't be Levi.

Me in the Black Hole!

One of the best experiences I've ever had!

Proud to be a Raider Fan!

So V,

You say you don’t, but you really hate Gruden through and through. And that’s fine, I get it.
How are you going to be able to still follow and like this team?

I’m just asking. It’s going to be hard for you...

Same way you all followed the team while hating RM...  ;) ;) ;)

And I don't hate Gruden...

I hate what he DID to this team... and that we now, once again, have to start from scratch...

And his start to this, was to get rid of everything that was ACTUALLY good on this team, instead of building with/from it... 

Best Edge Rusher in the league... (Mack)
2nd best Edge Rusher on the team (Irvin)
Best Punter in the league... (King)
Best WR on our team... (Cooper or Crabtree)
2nd best WR on our team... (Cooper or Crabtree)
3rd best WR on our team... (Patterson)
Had our best CB on the bench to start the year... (Conley)
Had our best Safety on the bench to start the year... (Joseph)

That's a lot of holes to PURPOSEFULLY make... And the worst part, he did all this THINKING he was making the team better... That's what I hate... That we're going BACKWARDS... and the rest of the division is going FORWARD... and will be for the foreseeable future...

And who's to say we aren't STILL goin backwards... Even a dead clock is right 2 times a day...

Actually I never hated Reg? And I’m not trying to start something here.
I just feel the more Chucky could fail, the more redeemed you will be.
Do you think 100% Gruden is here to destroy this organizaion?

I’m starting to see this in a different light now, that’s all.

How can anyone not be excited about the Raider future?

Eventually, even the non believers will come home.

How long have we been "excited about the future"...

Some of us actually like players like Mack, Cooper, Irvin, etc... You know... the guys that were sold as our future not even a year ago... Hell, they were sold even after Gruden was hired...

Just because we're not all Gruden fan boys, doesn't mean we're any less of a fan, so kill that dumb shit.. I'm already home, never a need to "come back"...

Last time I was this excited was back in 1998. Not sure if you were born then or not. And as we all have "liked" players from (pick a year), doesn't mean you start hammering thinking only if V was GM.... this team would contend every year because......... V knows what's best for the Raiders........

You move on or you don't.

When the Raiders move into their new digs and we have a playoff worthy team..... everyone going to remember you for being the guy who didn't agree.

I'm good with that. 

Hate away bra.
Nice post Tibby

Oh Boy!!!

V is going to have a field day with this one!!!

Gruden would need a trusted sidekick to help him in the front office. Of course, Gruden will still have full power and final say regardless of who comes in.

I would think Gruden will look for someone who he knows. That is usually how he operates. He trusts his circle.

One name that has been bandied about is Mike Holmgren. He hired Gruden in 1992 in Green Bay. Holmgren also has experience as a front-office man. He ran the Browns for a while. Gruden and Holmgren still are close. I can see Holmgren jumping t the chance if Gruden wants him,

Other names to consider include Louis Riddick and Mark Dominik. Riddick and Gruden are close form their ESPN days. Riddick is a former Raider player (as McKenzie was) and that sells. Dominik was with Gruden in Tampa Bay. There’s always Bruce Allen, but he is more of a business guy than a pure football man.

With McKenzie gone, there will be names that develop. But the names on this list is a good starting point.
I would not mind Riddick one bit.

He came here saying we could win with what we had, that Carr's regression was due to injuries, that Cooper would be the centerpiece of the passing game, that He came here to coach Khalil Mack... and that the goal is to win a Super Bowl for Oakland, all while knowing we may not even be playing in Oakland NEXT year...

No hypocrit here...

And your point is? So if Gruden had come in and said "We're razing this shit to the ground!" You'd have been okay with it? You wouldn't have objected?

Gruden is in a unique situation because the team is moving. He was charged with placating a lame duck fan base in Oakland that did not want to hear the 'R' word. The team makes a pittance in that stadium as it is. If Gruden had even hinted at starting over, they would have been burning Chucky dolls in effigy.
