Raiders cut Jonathan Cooper

Jonathan Cooper‘s NFL career has hit another bump in the road.

Cooper was cut by the Raiders today after two games he didn’t play in. With guard Richie Incognito back from a two-game suspension the Raiders needed a roster spot, and Cooper is the odd man out.

It’s the latest in a long line of disappointments from Cooper, who was selected by the Cardinals with the seventh overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft and considered at the time perhaps the best guard prospect ever to enter the draft.

Cooper never did much for the Cardinals and was eventually traded to the Patriots. He didn’t last long in New England and also didn’t last long in stints in Cleveland, Dallas, San Francisco and Washington.

Now Cooper has again been cut by a team he barely played for, and it’s fair to wonder whether he’ll ever play in an NFL game again.

  1. Someone tell Steve Keim if you waste a #7 overall pick on a guard, you’d better hope he’s a sure fire first ballot pick to canton. Because you can find starting guards in the 4-5th rounds. Another miss by Mr Keim.

    What NONSENSE. Cooper was highly graded coming into the 2013 draft. EVERYONE had him going in the Top 10. Mayock even at one point had him going 1st overall.

  3. Poster boy for why it’s sometimes tough to project college offensive linemen as pros….along with Greg Robinson, of course.

  4. he could try bull fighting….when it comes to blocking its like ole’, ole’ as the rusher runs right pass him untouched.

  5. Hello, New England. Isaiah Wynn on IR (again) for 8 weeks.

    you do recall we acquired him with a second round pick in 2016 for Chandler Jones right? We cut him by October if my memory serves me correctly.

    If Scar cant get you up to par……better walk away.
