Cowboys don't expect to make a trade

IRVING, Texas -- The NFL trading deadline is 3 p.m. today, pushed back from Tuesday due to the storms in the East Coast, and the Cowboys don't expect to be buyers or sellers.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said prior to Thursday's practice he didn't believe anything would happen regarding a trade.

"I don’t think so," Jones said. "I'm not totally ruling them out but I don’t think so."

Of course the two biggest names regarding a trade are cornerback Mike Jenkins and running back Felix Jones. Both are in the final year of their contracts but Felix Jones is battling knee issues and it would be hard to send him packing.

"Oh, yeah, he’s got some things going on that are real," Stephen Jones said. " give Felix a lot of credit for playing. We've had players in the past that wouldn't go out like that."

Jenkins was the subject of trade rumors this summer and his agent requested a deal after the Cowboys spent a first-round pick on cornerback Morris Claiborne.

"No, he’ll be here, we need him," Stephen Jones said of Jenkins. "We need corners in case something happens, we only got four corners."
