Fans will just be hoping that the moves they make with those draft resources translate to on-field relevancy, the sooner the better.
Cooper, who left last week's loss in London to Seattle with a concussion, has had a quiet season after earlier being touted by Gruden as the focus of Oakland's passing game.

Their last engagements of the day will be meetings with Bill Shorten, leader of the opposition, and Prime Minister Scott Morrison. But Bill Shorten, the leader of the main opposition party, has promised another vote if his Labor Party gets into power.
Dallas (3-4) has struggled to score points while losing all four road games, including 20-17 on Sunday at Washington. While the 33-year-old has flashed upside this season, it's going to be worth watching to see what he can do as the go-to receiver. While the trades of young Pro Bowlers Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper were jarring in and of themselves, it was the way they were handled that is bothering veteran players. While Cooper did not demand to be traded, Thompson was told by sources that the star receiver "set the wheels in motion" and the Raiders were essentially "obliging Cooper's overtures and got a first-round pick out of it". But it is another example of the Raiders (1-5) looking to the future.
It's not the first time Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has made a big trade for a former top-10 pick at receiver, and the other two attempts didn't go well.
I think Cameron did a good job summarizing the trade. The Cowboys drafted Michael Gallup in the third round and added veterans Tavon Austin, Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson to a group that included Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams.
