After losing Dez Bryant to injury, the Dallas Cowboys moved quickly to fill the void at receiver by acquiring Brice Butler in a trade with the Raiders.

The 25-year-old confirmed the move on Tuesday (Sept. 15), via Twitter. Reports said the Cowboys traded a conditional 2016 NFL Draft pick for Butler.

He was a seventh-round draft pick in 2013 out of San Diego State. In two seasons with Oakland, he recorded 30 catches for 383 yards and two touchdowns.
