Jerry Jones Says There is a “High Improbability” Cowboys Make a Trade Before Deadline

The NFL is at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The , who are currently 2-6 and on a three-game losing streak, having struggled mightily on both sides of the ball since was lost for the season after suffering a season-ending ankle in Week 5 vs the .

Cowboys owner joined 105.3 The Fan this morning to talk about a variety of topics. When asked about the possibility of the Cowboys making a before Tuesday's deadline Jones said there's a high improbability that'll happen.

“I think your question, normally, would get a pretty — a response that would say, ‘I don't expect anything to happen,' but that's not fair,” Jones said. “Because the way we're structured, the way we can do business, we can make decisions if the opportunity comes up, and we can make them in a short order. We've prepared every scenario that you can think of, almost, walk around like that. And so, if we do get an opportunity, we can make that call.

“And you know, I'm in the mood, but certainly not in the mood to do anything that would knowingly negatively impact our future, both this weekend, as well as we look ahead for now and years to come. So, what does that mean? What does that mean, is that I don't expect anything but if something should come up of any nature, we've certainly got the ability to entertain it and make a decision on it.”

If the Cowboys do make a trade there's one player who won't be involved according to Jones and that's , who currently leads the team with five after a five-year absence.

“I think it's been a positive how he's evolved,” Jones said. “He's a different player than he was, but that doesn't make it a negative … I like his focus. I like his attitude. I like his attitude about the future. I'm not interested in doing anything about Aldon.”

The Cowboys have recently done some shuffling of their roster. Last Tuesday, they traded , , to the for a conditional draft pick. One day later, they released Defensive and . On Monday, the Cowboys finalize a trade that sent a seventh-round pick to the for Eli Anoku to add some depth on the interior.

All eyes will be on the Cowboys today as the fan base impatiently waits for a splash, albeit an unlikely one.
