The Dallas Cowboys won by 50 points over the Chicago Bears, but Jerry Jones was open to discussing a possible trade for a wide receiver. Jones stated to reporters that several teams had reached out to him in an effort to help them with wide receiver. By Michael Gehlken Jones declined to make a decision on whether Dallas would be interested in a receiver.
“We’ll just see. We will see,” said Jones. “We don’t have to do anything, but if it’s right, we’ll do something.”
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said team has received calls from teams offering WR help. “We’ll just see. We will see.” He likes four tight ends and what Jalen Tolbert has shown.

Jones stated to the media that he is a big fan of the Cowboys’ tight ends and also appreciates the talent and experience that Jalen Tolbert, the young receiver, has provided. Jones isn’t concerned about the Cowboys being desperate for the position, with Noah Brown showing promise and James Washington returning from IR.
Although the Cowboys have a wide receiving base, it may not be the consensus across the league. Although CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb are capable of providing a one-two punch for Prescott, they lack a true WR3. The Cowboys’ 6-2 team could use another pair of hands to help them. Dalton Schultz is a key player in their passing attack.
Lamb was Cowboys’ leading receiver with 77 yards in Week 8. On seven targets, he caught five passes, including one touchdown. Schultz had six receptions and a total of 74 yards. Gallup had four catches for 49 yards. Two receptions and 20 yards were the Cowboys’ most impressive feats by any other Cowboys receiver.
Jones would not commit to making any moves to improve the position, even though there are some talented receivers available before Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline. Jones could accept a deal if it was offered to him.
