The Dallas Cowboys are ready to deal before this Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline, but only under the right circumstances. That according to Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones earlier this week. The right circumstance would be a trade for a player that would do more than just fill an immediate need temporarily. That player would also have to have a relativly small contract due to the Cowboys limited salary cap space.

Currently, Dallas has needs along their defensive line and at the safety position. And, if the rumors are true, the Cowboys could also be in the market for a starting running back to replace the injury-prone DeMarco Murray. Therefore, here are my five deals the Cowboys should make by the trade deadline to address their needs.

    You can only hope the highly intelligent Jerry Jones learned his lesson giving a long and outlandish contract to Miles Austin. Of course his ego won’t let him admit how much that has hurt the Cowboys. After all, for most of his tenure as owner it has been his method of operation and he won’t admit it is a major reason the Cowboys are stuck in mediocrity.


      i think if we trade these guys and get some real players in here we will be okay gotta trade austin hes a injury prone bum getting paid way to much work some kind of package with minnasota and get allen and peterson
