Report: Raiders Shopping Wide Receiver Amari Cooper, Safety Karl Joseph

Cooper has 22 receptions and one touchdown in 2018. 

Khalil Mack may not be the only former first-round pick shipped from Oakland in 2018 according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, as the Raiders are "looking to shop" wide receiver Amari Cooper and safety Karl Joseph.

Cooper was selected with the No. 4 pick in the 2015 draft, while Joseph was picked ten spots later by Oakland in 2016. But it seems as though the new regime under Jon Gruden isn't too keen on the former first rounders.

Cooper has tallied 225 recpetions for Oakland in four seasons, reaching the end zone 19 times. The Alabama product caught 70-plus passes and accumulated over 1,000 yards receiving in each of his first two years with the Raiders, but regressed in 2017, hauling in just 48 receptions for 680 yards. 

Joseph has played in 30 games for Oakland since 2016, starting 24 contests. He has 138 career tackles to pair with one interception.
