ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers bolstered their return game on Monday, acquiring wide receiver Ryan Switzer from the Oakland Raiders.
Pittsburgh sent a fifth-round pick in the 2019 draft to the Raiders for Switzer and Oakland's sixth-round pick in 2019.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Latest on the NFL draft Saturday (all times local):
The Dallas Cowboys have acquired defensive lineman Jihad Ward from Oakland for receiver and kick returner Ryan Switzer.
It's the second trade of the day for the Cowboys involving a receiver, this time with one leaving instead of coming in. Dallas got Tavon Austin, the eighth overall pick in 2013, from the Los Angeles Rams for a sixth-round pick.
DALLAS (AP) — Pharoh Cooper of the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City's Tyreek Hill split 10 of the 11 first-place votes in The Associated Press kick returner rankings. The overall tally wasn't nearly that close.
Cooper finished with 102 points, 43 ahead of the Chiefs' speedy multipurpose man because Hill was left off two ballots and barely made three others on the voting panel that includes Hall of Fame receiver James Lofton and 10 AP pro football writers.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott was getting X-rays on his swollen right hand when rookie Ryan Switzer scored his first career touchdown on an 83-yard punt return.
The extra time with the Dallas offense on the sideline kept Prescott from missing any plays, and last year's NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year led the Cowboys to their first win after three straight losses without suspended star running back Ezekiel Elliott.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Ryan Switzer exchanged a high-five with Dez Bryant, then two more, followed by a shoulder bump and a couple of dance moves with his celebrated Dallas teammate.
The rookie receiver isn't a typical fourth-round pick cloaked in anonymity. The 5-foot-8 speedster ran with the starters during offseason practices and he cooked up an elaborate handshake with Bryant, who wasn't the only Cowboys veteran to notice.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have signed eight of their nine draft picks, including first-rounder Taco Charlton.
Dallas announced the signings Friday at the start of the team's rookie minicamp. Along with the eight draft picks, the Cowboys also signed 13 undrafted rookie free agents.
The 6-foot-6, 277-pound Charlton, a defensive end from Michigan, was drafted 28th overall by the Cowboys in their search for a strong pass-rushing threat. He had 10 sacks for the Wolverines last season.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The all-Atlantic Coast Conference football team, as announced Monday following a vote of 48 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association, with first-team votes worth three points, second-team votes worth two points and third-team votes worth one point.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Mitch Trubisky kept scanning the field, delivering the ball on target with a cool composure for North Carolina — down to when he made the game's biggest play in the frantic final seconds.
The junior threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Bug Howard with 2 seconds left to help the Tar Heels rally past Pittsburgh 37-36 on Saturday in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for two teams that finished 1-2 atop the Coastal Division last season.
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — In a story Sept. 11 about North Carolina's game against Illinois, The Associated Press misspelled the last name of North Carolina's quarterback on some references. It is Mitch Trubisky, not Trupisky.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Trubisky leads North Carolina past Illinois, 48-23
Tar Heels ride Trubisky's big night to 48-23 win at Illinois
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — A year ago, a 48-14 win over Illinois got North Carolina going and propelled the Tar Heels on a run to the ACC championship game and a bowl.
Coming off a 33-24 season-opening loss to Georgia that knocked them out of the Top 25, the Tar Heels could use a repeat performance Saturday when they travel to Illinois.
