Jerry Jones: Cowboys Haven't Discussed Trading Picks

Dallas has moved from their original first round draft position in each of the past two drafts



    The Dallas Cowboys are no strangers to draft day trades.

    They traded down last year to land center Travis Frederick in the first and wide receiver Terrance Williams in the third round, and the year before, they traded up to take cornerback Morris Claiborne with the sixth overall pick.

    This year though, Jerry Jones says it’s been all quiet on the trading front thus far, that the Cowboys haven’t talked to any other teams about the possibility of a deal.

    We haven’t heard a lot from other clubs,” Jones said Tuesday, per the Dallas Morning News. “We haven’t found that to be particularly productive. That’s day-of-draft type dynamics. I’d be surprised if there are not trade opportunities by the time you get to where we’re going to be picking or certainly afterwards.

    “You can use your logic and say that this club may be a candidate for a trade if that’s what you want to think about at that particular time. We go through the (possibilities) of trades and possibilities of the phone ringing. You try to be as ready as you can if that should happen. In general, we haven’t been talking to anybody about trades.”
