The Dallas Cowboys are coming off their bye week, but might be looking for some help in potential trade or trades as the team sits with a 4-2 record .
Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones made his weekly appearance on the “Shan & RJ” show on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas speaking on multiple topics about the team. One subject that was brought up is the upcoming trade deadline and what they might do, Jones responded that they are open to trades, but won’t be the ones to make the first move.
“It will have to come our way. I don’t want to preclude it in any way, but it always does. … The initiation of an opportunity to make a trade that would help us principally has to start over on the other end. That’s not showing a lack of aggressiveness, it’s just how it starts,”Jerry Jones, Dallas Cowboys Owner/General Manager
The NFL’s trade deadline is quickly approaching as it will end on October 31 at 4 pm EST.
Who Dallas Could Go After
While the team is off to a good start on the season, some have questioned if the Cowboys have the weapons on offense to compete with the best units like Miami and Philadelphia. The secondary has been looked at as well as the Cowboys are still trying to recover from losing Trevon Diggs earlier in the season.
Looking at receivers, Tennessee Titans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been a name brought up to be traded. The issue with him is not a lot of teams have shown interest. It could be the combination of his two-year, $26 million contract as well as Tennessee might be asking for too much compensation for him. Dallas could take advantage if Tennessee is desperate to get rid of him.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy could be another option for the Cowboys. The quick receiver has been the topic of trade talks and could make for a good second or third option in the offense. Plus, it may not take a lot to get him as Dallas might only have to give a low round pick for him.
On defense, Chicago Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson is an intriguing option in the secondary. Johnson just had a two interception game against the Las Vegas Raiders and he’s only 24 years old. With Diggs injured, Johnson could jump in and play on the outside with Stephon Gilmore.
Dallas could potentially make moves after this upcoming weekend, but they don’t seem to be picking up the phones to actively call teams. Fans can only hope that the right team calls them with the right players in place to help them make a run for the playoffs.
