Raiders Players Call Jon Gruden's Trade of Amari Cooper a "Knockout Punch"

Raiders Players Call Jon Gruden's Trade of Amari Cooper a

The Raiders have fallen to 1-5 and tension seems to be getting worse as The Athletic released a new report Tuesday that players are questioning coach Jon Gruden's accountability following Monday's trade of Amari Cooper, which players found out through news reports.

The only player willing to speak on the record was tight end Lee Smith, saying he was "concerned" for his teammates that could be traded any minute because they're losing interest in playing football under Gruden. And with the National Football League trade deadline quickly approaching, some players are beginning to wonder if they'll remain a Raider much longer. "We are just waiting to see if we will be here next week".

"When what you say and what you do are two different things, there is a problem", one player told the reporter.

"Raiders headquarters is not the best space for Carr".

He added: "The attacking of our strongest leader and the strongest man in our locker room is absolute horsesh-. We didn't want to believe it was coming, and Coach said we weren't going to trade him". And I know how hard guys work all year. And nobody is happy that we traded Amari. And having five first-rounders in the next two years is pretty good.

The relationship between the Raiders quarterback and his teammates is "fractured", leading some inside the organization to conclude he's no longer the quarterback of the future, The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II reported Monday, citing team sources. The organization hired him to get them back on track after last year's disappointing 6-10 campaign, and they obviously had great faith that he could do it thanks to the fact that they signed him to a 10-year, $100 million deal.

Smith called the report "the biggest joke" he's ever seen and reiterated the support Oakland has for Carr.
