The quiet trading deadline could have been a little noisier if Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had wanted.
“We had a significant offer for a key player that we turned down and
turned down in getting in more extended dialogue for, ” Jones said. “It
was a very firm, significant offer for one of our young players.”
Dallas is deep at running back, but Jones said the offer didn’t come at that position.
Jones didn’t want to make the deal because he likes the makeup of his team. The following quote probably won’t warm the hearts of Cowboys fans.
“I feel as good about what we can do this year as I did last year when
I traded for Roy Williams and gave consideration for Roy playing and
helping us accomplish our goals last year,” Jones said. “I feel every
bit as strong as I felt last year.”
We’re not sure why Jones would reveal information about the offer, although we could come up with a few irresponsible theories. More importantly, we want to know what the offer was.
It’s only a matter of time now before the information comes out, but we’ll let you guess in the comments. Winner gets a lifetime subscription to PFT.
