To the dismay many of their fans, the Dallas Cowboys held a fairly quiet trade deadline.
The Cowboys did acquire defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins last Thursday, but they didn’t make any further moves Tuesday. ESPN’s Ed Werder reported they were in talks with the Houston Texans to make a deal for Brandin Cooks, a wide receiver. The trade window closes at 4 p.m. ET.
“I really love this team, but why do we get this same tweet every year,” Tad wrote on Twitter. “We were going to trade but ran out time, you can make the deal before deadline day.”
He said that he wasn’t angry at the Cowboys for failing to acquire Cooks, but that he was disappointed in their inactivity as other title hopefuls strengthened their rosters.
“Let’s be clear, I’m not upset the Cowboys didn’t land Cooks,” he added in a separate post on Wednesday morning. “For the money, we could have kept [Amari Cooper]. What I am saying, is we should have done something. Every other team in contention for the SB made a move to better their teams.”

Robert Quinn, their NFC East rivals, was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles to give them a better upgrade to their defensive line. The San Francisco 49ers made a trade for Christian McCaffrey, their star running back. TJ Hockenson was the Minnesota Vikings’ tight end.
Dallas should provide more support for Tad, his brother who led the Cowboys in two wins since he returned from a thumb injury. They are now one of the NFC’s most formidable contenders at 6-2 with their star quarterback healthy.
Dallas will have a Week 9 bye, before taking on two big road games against the Green Bay Packers or Vikings.
