Trade Doesn't Seem Likely Before Today's Deadline, Jerry Jones Says

FRISCO, Texas – The NFL trade deadline is 3 p.m. Central today, and Jerry Jones sounded doubtful the Cowboys would make a move before then.

"I wouldn't rule out anything right up until the bell rings, the deadline," Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan. "Seeing here this morning it doesn't look like we'll be doing anything regarding something that might be impacted by the trade deadline."

The Cowboys endured two more significant injuries in Sunday's overtime win over the Eagles – starting cornerback Mo Claiborne (groin) and safety Barry Church (arm) could miss extended time – but that doesn't mean the team would look to improve their defensive depth through a trade.

Although they made two in-season trades last year, acquiring quarterback Matt Cassel and Brice Butler to address injuries to Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, the Cowboys have been quiet at the trade deadline in recent years.

(Update: As expected, the Cowboys did not make a trade before Tuesday's deadline.)
