All is quiet at the moment for the Dallas Cowboys in regards to being involved in any trades before the NFL trade deadline arrives. All teams have until Tuesday, Nov. 2 by 4:00 P.M. ET to pull off any trades with hopes of making moves to either bring immediate success now or acquire draft picks for a brighter future.
Some believe the Cowboys could be in the market for a safety or consider trading Michael Gallup to address some of their defensive needs. At any rate, CEO Stephen Jones recently appeared on 105.3 The FAN to give an update on what the thought process has been so far with the Cowboys and well, confirmed that the lines of communication are pretty much open to other teams.
In an article on WFAA.com by Mark Lane, here’s what Jones had to say about the current roster and how they view this year’s NFL trade deadline:
Stephen Jones confirms the Dallas Cowboys will look at trade offers
"“Feeling really good about between what we have on our 53, as we said, what we have on our practice squad, what we have on injured reserve with players that have great opportunities to return and help us — feel really good about this team,” said Jones. “But at the same time if there’s the right situation out there, we’ll take a long, hard look at it.”"
As always, these latest comments by Jones confirm what the Cowboys tend to do in being “open for business” all year long and willing to hear any offers. Of course, if a good offer comes that both sides get what they need in regards to trading for players and/or draft picks, it should definitely be considered.
At 5-1 and coming off a bye week in Week 7, the Cowboys only need to add a player or two tops to address their needs at safety, defensive tackle, or at cornerback. They’ve done a great job so far this season in showing their identity of being a tough, resilient football team with their current roster but adding a proven starter that can come in and take care of business will only help the cause.
The Cowboys are for real this season and as they continue to prove this to the football world, a key trade by America’s Team to address any of those defensive positional groups could be what pushes the envelope to an unforgettable season. They’re built to win now and if an opportunity comes to add even more talent to an impressive roster already via trade without breaking the bank or messing up the future, the Cowboys need to make it happen.
