With the way the Dallas Cowboys are going this season, owner Jerry Jones does not want any roster movement. Jones did not pull any trade deal especially with rumored interest on Dolphins’ defensive end Cameron Wake.
According to the Miami Herald, the Cowboys have an interest in Wake but with the steep asking price, Jones immediately turned down any offers. The Cowboys did not event use Darren McFadden on the trading block which means Jones is happy with things in the team.
The Cowboys carry a 6-1 record in the NFC East and it brings contentment to Jones with the team. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has already proven that he has the nerves, especially in crucial matches. Prescott managed to avoid a devastating setback when he led the Cowboys past the Eagles in an overtime win in Week 8.

There were rumors of a possible comeback for Tony Romo but Jones immediately dismiss any decision to bring their veteran arm immediately. With Wake, Jones is known not to rush any decision and with the steep price in exchange, he did not give in.
Aside from Wake, the Cowboys were also linked to getting in a trade to bring in Sheldon Richardson but that did not also materialize. Jones wants his team to know that he is happy with what they have and will stick with them till the end of the season.
With their decision not to make a move, addition to the team would come from waivers and promote players from practice squads. The Cowboys are not a team built on quick decision-making, things that happen with the team is carefully thought of. This is the reason Jones never entertained any of the rumored trade offers.
Getting Wake would have been big for the Cowboys but Jones is not the type who would trade its future picks in a heartbeat. No matter what happens Jones believes in the capabilities of his team and players. He would rather keep their future picks for upcoming athletes with star quality that could further bring the team to where they want to – a Super Bowl spot.
