Dallas Cowboys acquire wideout Brice Butler in trade deal

The Dallas Cowboys confirm that they have signed wide receiver Brice Butler from the Oakland Raiders in exchange for two late-round picks in the 2016 Draft.

The Dallas Cowboys have acquired wide receiver Brice Butler in a trade deal from the Oakland Raiders.

The NFC East outfit lost All-Pro wideout Dez Bryant for up to six weeks due to a broken metatarsal in his right foot sustained in their season opener against the New York Giants.

As a result, Jason Garrett's men have moved to bolster their depth at the position by sending a conditional fifth-round and sixth-round pick in the 2016 Draft to the Raiders in return for Butler.

Butler has recorded 30 receptions for 383 yards and two touchdowns in his two seasons in the NFL.
