The Dallas Cowboys failed to acquire a wide receiver prior to Tuesday’s trade deadline. They tried, but they failed.
The Cowboys also discussed a deal with Brandin Cook, a Houston Texans veteran, and inquired about another AFC wideout. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network (h/t Cowboys Country’s Mike Fisher), Dallas offered Jerry Jeudy from the Denver Broncos.
Although it is not clear how serious the talks were, the two sides couldn’t come to an agreement.

Jeudy caught 30 of 54 targets, for 449 yards and three touchdowns, in an underwhelming Broncos offense. Although the former No. 15 pick has not lived up to high expectations from Alabama, he has exceeded 50 yards in four of his last four games.
The Broncos opted not to move the 23-year old, who was under contract through 2023. Denver has a fifth-year option that allows him to be retained for the next year.
Dallas is lacking in receiving depth since Amari Cooper was traded and the team started the season without James Washington and Michael Gallup. Gallup is back in Week 4, and Dalton Schultz, a tight end, has been able to come back on top with Dak Prescott.
The Cowboys have the option of acquiring a free agent receiver to help them out, even though the deadline for trades has passed. Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said that they expect to pursue Odell Beckham Jr.
