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.
