The Cowboys really gave up a first-round pick for WR Amari Cooper today and the Internet is ripping Jerry Jones for it.
Even Cowboys fans aren’t happy about it.
At 3-4, in what seems like a wide-open NFC East, the Cowboys sacrificed an opportunity to get a major, relatively inexpensive piece in the draft next season to bring in Cooper and his hefty salary now.
Here’s what some are saying about the deal.

This marks third time under Jerry Jones that Cowboys have traded a No. 1 draft pick for a veteran WR: two firsts for Joey Galloway, a first and three other picks for Roy Williams and now Amari Cooper. The first two were epic failures.— Ed Werder (@WerderEdESPN) October 22, 2018

I’m convinced Jerry Jones has no idea what he’s doing— Shed Sports (@shedsports) October 22, 2018
Jerry Jones got hoodwinked and bamboozled and maybe even snookered.— mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) October 22, 2018

Jerry Jones just made Jon Gruden look like Howie Roseman— White Jesus (@AdrianFedkiw) October 22, 2018
The Browns got a 5th for Josh Gordon, how the hell did Jerry Jones get finessed that badly— Depressed Sho (@TeamOhtani) October 22, 2018
Football fans will remember this pick for a very long time if the player the Raiders' pick in the draft turns out to be valuable. It could come back to haunt the Cowboys.
