Unnamed Raider calls the Amari Cooper trade a 'knockout punch'

Derek Carr has lost confidence of teammates, appearing to 'cry after being sacked' didn't help [report] Derek Carr Has “Fractured Relationship” With Teammates Due To Him Crying Against Seahawks (VIDEO)

That player's fears are not unfounded as Oakland (1-5) will likely make some more deals before the National Football League trade deadline on Tuesday. "Despite everything the coaches told us at training camp".

The Athletic, citing multiple sources, reported that teammates' confidence in Carr "has waned", in part, because of film that appeared to show the quarterback crying after taking a hit in Oakland's loss to Seattle in Week 6. "But the Cooper one was like a knockout punch, especially because we had just walked back in the door from the bye".

"I think many of us realize we won't be here next year, " another player told The Athletic. The team needs to play better, and getting a win Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts would go a long way.

Cooper, for example, was pulled off the practice field Monday and Gruden didn't inform the team of the trade after the workout session. According to McKenzie, trading players away makes sense for the Raiders because it gives them a "great opportunity to build". "Certainly, I don't see us trading our quarterback". Players later learned about the trade by checking their phones, and Gruden still had not addressed the team about it as of Tuesday.


If Khalil Mack can be traded, and if Amari Cooper can be traded, then anybody could be traded at any point in time. " Smith said. "You never ever want to trade elite, homegrown talent". It's no secret that he got a 10-year contract.

One player who spoke to The Athletic without anonymity was tight end Lee Smith, who confirmed he has worries about the locker room and voiced frustration with the idea of a rebuild. They are now loaded with five first-round draft picks over the next two years - but it's cost them this season.

No one on the team is denying the Raiders subpar start in 2018; 1-5 is not where Smith, or any of his teammates expected to be at this juncture. But at least Gruden has a lot of draft picks to potentially waste next year.
