Raiders Are Reportedly Unhappy with Jon Gruden Trading Cooper

"All these reports about this locker room being fractured with Derek Carr is the most obnoxious and ridiculous thing I've heard - ever", Lee said.

"I think many of us realize we won't be here next year", the player told The Athletic.

"You have to wonder if we haven't been playing for draft picks all along", the player said. "We didn't want to believe it was coming, and Coach said we weren't going to trade him".

Just when we thought the situation in Oakland couldn't get any worse, it amazingly continues to get worse.

"Nobody was happy when we traded Khalil".

At this point, Jon Gruden is coaching and orchestrating like a man who knows he'll be employed far longer than any of his players.

Gruden said publicly that he was not entertaining trade offers for Cooper, and he was apparently telling the team the same in private. However, McKenzie also hinted that anyone on his roster was not safe from a trade.

Derek Carr hurt his arm during the Raiders' Week 6 loss against the Seahawks, and as Oakland fell to 1-5 on the season, a video circulated on Twitter that appeared to show a crying Carr shout for help. Though, Gruden tells ESPN's Chris Mortensen and affirmed that Derek Carr would be safe and they are "not trading anyone else", and "trying to stay competitive".

Whether players will take Smith's advice to sit down with Gruden and express opinions on the team's current path remains to be seen. "Our job is to play football". "I am a leader on this team and I am under contract next year, but more importantly I care about all my teammates". But at least Gruden has a lot of draft picks to potentially waste next year.
