Cowboys Quiet as Trade Deadline Comes, Goes



    The Dallas Cowboys, and just about everyone else in the National Football League, watched the trade deadline come and go Tuesday without making a move. This is the second consecutive season the Cowboys have stayed put on deadline day; in 2008, of course, they went out and landed Roy Williams.

    Last season, there was some talk of a deal with the Bengals, that would send Martellus Bennett to Cincinnati for what Jerry Jones described as a “game-ready player” and a “premier” draft pick, but the owner opted to hold on to the 23-year-old tight end.

    This season, there was not so much as a whiff of a potential deal for the Cowboys--and actually, only one deadline deal was reported. The Kansas City Chiefs sent defensive end Alex Magee to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for an undisclosed draft pick. We know, we know, this is exciting stuff.
