Stephen Jones says Dallas Cowboys are open to making a trade


Somewhat floundering atop the NFC East at 4-3, the Dallas Cowboys aren’t as good as they feel they should be – at least in regards to the standings.

Dealing with injuries and sub-par play from some higher level players, Stephen Jones is well aware that if the Cowboys want to make some noise in the postseason (assuming they get there), they may need a little help.

Case in point? Jones recently suggesting that the Cowboys are open to a trade, if something presents itself.

“We’re certainly open to it,” Jones said Friday. “I know our guys are working back there. I’m working. If the right situation presented itself, we would certainly do something. I mean, it’s no secret we’re moving a lot of guys in and out in our defensive line and that will probably continue to be the case. I think we already have some workouts scheduled for Monday. We’re just taking a look at guys.”

Judging from that quote, it appears the Cowboys are mostly interested in finding some defensive line help though we’ve heard in recent days they may have also been looking at improving their running game.

Offensive or defensive trade, getting a deal done won’t be easy given the Cowboys’ salary cap.

The NFL trade deadline is this coming Tuesday, October 29th.

    Continuing to acquire more and more questionable players via quickly trades the Jerry Jones way is a lot like being a junkie. When you need a ‘fix’ to make the itch go away, you start frantically running around looking at everything and everybody thinking they can help you solve your problem. That ‘fix’ always costs a lot of money and the positive results are always short term. But, most similar, when the smoke clears, the ‘fix’ has come and gone, and you can finally think clearly again about all the damage you’ve done through your lack of discipline, not only do you hate yourself for your actions, but those people who come in contact with you hate you too for what you’ve become and the damage you’ve done to the healthy part of your body. ……. Think about it.
