With the NFL trade deadline just over one week away, every team (whether they’re contenders or rebuilding) should be looking into at least one or two deals. It doesn’t mean that they have to make them. But if you’re not even inquiring about potential ways to help your franchise through the trade market, then you’re not doing your job.
With that being said, Cowboys fans can’t help but feel as though Jerry Jones isn’t doing his job based on some recent comments he made regarding the trade deadline.
While speaking on 103.5 The Fan, the Dallas Cowboys owner talked about his team’s current position ahead of the November 1st deadline.
“Absolutely nothing that involves a name of a player or a position that I’m seriously looking at, at this moment,” Jerry told the station, although he didn’t completely rule out the possibility of a deal happening.
“Not one move. But could that change in 30 minutes? Of course it could,” he continued.
Hoping to hear that their front office was actively looking for way to improve their roster, Cowboys fans were noticeably upset about this statement from their team’s owner.
Many of them took to Twitter to voice their frustration with Jones. Some of them even had specific players that they would like to see the Cowboys target over the next 10 days:
The Cowboys are currently sitting in third place in the NFC East with a 4-2 record. They’ll welcome back starting quarterback Dak Prescott for their game against the Detroit Lions in week 7 on Sunday.
As for the trade deadline, Jerry may want to tell the fans that his front office isn’t looking for options, but that’s hard to believe based on some of the talent that’s reportedly being made available this season — especially at the wide receiver position.
Don’t be surprised if Jerry Jones changes his tune over the next couple days.
