The Raiders are terrible at personnel management. They also cut Amari Cooper.

You sure?

They got a 1st rounder for Cooper.  Everyone thought Dallas overpaid at the time and that it was a great trade for the Raiders.

The Cooper trade seems fair to everyone involved.  Cooper didn't want to be in Oakland and is doing well so far in Dallas.  The first round pick is useful for a rebuilding Raiders team and Cooper can be replaced.  The Mack trade was horrible for the Raiders.  Still drives this long time Raider fan crazy.

Future first rounder. Turned out to be the 27th pick. For a player they drafted with the fourth pick and who was pretty clearly the best player on their offense.

NOW the Cooper trade seems fair.  At the time, it seemed like Oakland got the better of it for sure.  Hard to judge a trade after the fact, with all the information at the time, Oakland did well there.

Mack, sure that hurt them.  They got a good return though.  Would they have contended last year, this year, or next year with Mack though?  I think not.  So in terms of playoff runs, in the long run I think that Mack trade will pay off.

He was awful in Oakland.  For whatever reason.  Might have been Carr, but Carr is still the QB.  Cooper wasn't going to suddenly turn it around and be a stud in Oakland.  It was a fantastic trade for Oakland, what Cooper did in a new offense with a new QB is irrelevant.  He sucked in oakland and that likely would have continued.

Uh, he had two 1000-yard Pro Bowl seasons in Oakland.

The team was imploding. Which is my point. To say "but Anderson was cut by the Raiders!" when all the evidence is that the team was imploding, and a bunch of people left the team and had success in their next stop (including Anderson), shows that being cut by the Raiders isn't indication of a performance issue.

Never said it was. Sometimes players just aren't working with their current system, qb, coach, city, teammates, etc. Whatever the situation was, if the team was imploding or whatever the case, he was no longer a good fit there and wasn't performing well there.  Given all those circumstances, no the Raiders shouldn't have kept him at that point and yes I think a 1st round pick (which they had no idea would end up 27th) was a fantastic return for them. Most people were shocked they got that.

From what I've heard Anderson was cut by the Gruden as a favor to join the Superbowl Contender Rams.

Free agent RB C.J. Anderson will work out for the Texans on Tuesday.

The Texans have quickly written off Duke Johnson as an early-down option, and Carlos Hyde came back down to earth in Week 3. 28-year-old CJA still had plenty of juice left in his legs down the stretch for the Rams last season. If not the Texans, he figures to sign somewhere soon.

Houston would be a nice landing spot for Anderson IMO. Despite talk to the contrary prior to week 1, it's clear the team doesn't see Duke as a workhorse. And after a solid week 1, Hyde is showing signs of the guy we saw the past few years rather than the emerging stud in his first few years.

The problem is that this may become a 3-headed RBBC monster. Yes, Duke hasn't proven to be a workhorse, and Hyde hasn't been terrible, just variable.

It's a good depth signing for HOU, but I'd much rather see CJA go to the Giants where his chances for a meaningful role from a fantasy perspective are more significant (until Barkley is back to full speed).

So Duke Johnson cannot be relied on as part of a 50/50 or 60/40 split? That's what we are hearing. Guess the Browns knew. 

I thought for sure that Duke could catch 50-75 balls in this offense and look good doing it...hmmmm

I thought the NYG would run to sign this guy.

It's hard for RBs to get check down work when the QB is more apt to just tuck it and run.

I don't disagree, but in NY, there's no guarantee that he would leapfrog Gallman (who is very good in the passing game) and the Giants will likely be throwing the ball a lot. Plus, it would be a relatively short term opening assuming Barkley is out only a month or so.

In Houston, he could conceivably take the job for good and, quote/unquote, run with it.

And even when he doesn't tuck it and run, Watson can extend the play with his legs.  He has the arm talent to take a broken play and create magic downfield.

Or holds the ball until he gets sacked. He won't make it through the season if he plays like he did last week.

CJ Anderson obviously ate all the food he had stored up and needs a payday to restock the shelves.

I'm hearing they passed on him and did NOT sign CJA after the workout

He looks nothing like the back that was a force with the Rams.  Entire offseason at Hometown Buffet.  Non-factor wherever he goes.

Do people on this board watch football? Cooper was a terrible fit for a rebuilding Raiders team and getting a first for him was a great move.

That said, Cooper has been great for a Cowboys team that has SB aspirations this year and was probably worth the trade. Both teams can benefit from a trade.

Currently watching TannerSlays on Twitch, and he partied up with CJ Anderson (along with TSM Viss) to play some Apex Legends.

When they grouped up, CJ Anderson was absolutely pumped, talking about some huge great news that he couldn't share yet, but it's been news he's been waiting for and couldn't be more excited about. He said he couldn't say anything else about it now, but news should be out there soon.

Obviously it could mean absolutely nothing, Anderson is very active in the gaming community and is extremely charitable so it might have something to do with those and nothing to do with football, but it may be worth a speculative add for those with deeper benches. Weirdest place I think I've ever potentially scooped news from though if there's something to it.

Leaguemate of mine says CJA is helping Topgolf get into esports...that could be his big news, idk.

I already owned him in one league and scooped in another just in case. Fairly deep roster dynasties.

I just cut him, so he is probably about to sign in a dream situation 

He will eat his way out of the job in a few weeks so no big loss for you.
