The Cowboys don’t have a first-round draft choice , having sent it to the Raiders in exchange for Amari Cooper. As Stephen Jones previously has said, the Cowboys will be watching game film of the receiver when the Raiders use the 27th overall selection.During the team’s pre-draft press conference Wednesday, the Cowboys reiterated that they have no regret.Nor should they.Cooper played like a first-rounder, catching 53 passes for 725 yards and six touchdowns in nine games with the Cowboys. Dak Prescott‘s yards per attempt went from 6.88 without Cooper last season to 7.71 with him. “I don’t think there is any buyer’s remorse there,” Stephen Jones said, via Clarence Hill of the . “I think we are really pleased we made that move, but as Jerry [Jones] said it’s painful to go through a draft without a No. 1 pick. We have looked at each other before and said we would never do that again. But certainly, after we have gone through the receivers and looked at that, I think we are very happy with where we have ended up in terms of what we could get at our pick in terms of a receiver or any other player in terms of what we ended up with with Amari.”The last time the Cowboys didn’t have a first-round pick was 2009 when they traded it to Detroit for receiver Roy Williams. Since then, the Cowboys have drafted Dez Bryant , Tyron Smith, Morris Claiborne, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, Byron Jones, Ezekiel Elliott, Taco Charlton and Leighton Vander Esch in the first round.The Cowboys’ initial choice next week is the 58th overall pick.“I want both,” Jerry Jones said. “I want Amari, and I want our first-rounder. I tried to do that with a lot of my decisions, and I do a lot of dreaming. But seriously , I would [trade for Cooper] tonight again. To make that clear. We were that rewarded with our future with Amari and consequently want to be real clear there. But again, its simply a foolish thought of ‘I would have liked to do that another way, instead of having that No. 1 pick.’ But candidly it makes anything we’re doing here very acceptable of reach over there and thinking about Amari Cooper and the Cowboys.” For fans of Chiefs rival teams their recent incidents of domestic and family violence and assault have become a punchline.

But there’s nothing funny about what’s been happening with regard to the team and what has become seemingly more than a coincidence in how many cases of violence against women and children they’ve seen with their players.USA Today did a deep dive into the myriad of incidents that have occurred with the Chiefs and found that in recent years the organization is far and away the worst offender.Tyreek Hill’s incident is not isolated for him either. In 2015 at college at Oklahoma State, he pleaded guilty to assaulting and choking his girlfriend. He would serve probation for the incident. A few months later the Chiefs used a fifth round pick on him. That’ll teach him.The audio recording upon which Hill’s child abuse charge is based has his fiancee telling Hill that their son is terrified of him and Hill responding “You should be terrified of me too.” That surfaced just over a month ago and Hill remains with the team.That situation is pretty fresh, but it was just last December that the Chiefs were faced with a video that surfaced of star running back Kareem Hunt kicking a woman in a hotel.To their credit, they quickly cut Hunt from the team, but that has certainly not always been their preferred course of action.Among the long list of domestic violence and assault perpetrated by Chiefs players is another former running back, Larry Johnson, who on two separate occasions during his time in Kansas City was charged with domestic abuse. The first of which involved threatening his wife with a gun.And these incidents are just in the past 15 years. Since then the rest of the league has been trying to clean up their act. While over the past eight years in particular , the average for Chiefs players being involved in domestic abuse and assault incidents is double the league average.“At some point, it’s going to be bad for the Kansas City Chiefs’ bottom line if they keep ignoring domestic violence and if they continue to select players with those kinds of histories,” Kim Gandy, president of the National Network to End Domestic Violence, told USA Today.The report details the history of domestic abuse runs deep with the Chiefs organization and includes, not just players, but many in the Hunt family as well. It’s not pretty and the Chiefs organization is clearly nowhere near the point of cleaning it up.Follow @LeviDamien
