Jerry Doesn't Expect Any Deadline Deals

The NFL's trading deadline is Tuesday at 3 PM Central



    The NFL’s trading deadline will most likely come and pass today at 3 PM Central without the Cowboys making any moves, this according to owner Jerry Jones.

    "I'm thinking we're not making a trade today," Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, via ESPN Dallas.

    The Cowboys could certainly use some help in some areas--the defensive line, for instance, remains a patchwork job, with DeMarcus Ware dealing with a quad injury, Jay Ratliff no longer a Cowboy and Anthony Spencer on the injured reserve, which leaves Jason Hatcher as the only healthy true starter--but they don’t really have the cap room to do anything about it.

    As it is, the Cowboys are less than $2 million under the cap.

    “You're always looking to improve yourself," vice president Stephen Jones said Monday. "We certainly are wide open to it, but it's got to make sense."

    Up against the cap as they are, it seems doubtful they’ll find a deal that “makes sense” by this afternoon.
