Felix Jones Trade Rumors: Cowboys Strongly Deny Interest In Dealing RB

After reports that the Dallas Cowboys were exploring the possibility of dealing RB Felix Jones came out yesterday, Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reached out to the Cowboys front office about the rumors:

From the scouting department to the front office, the texts came back "no", "not at all" to "Hell No! Totally Inaccurate."

Of course, there's no way to really know how truthful an anonymous sources is being, especially when it comes to something being considered, and not even actually done.

Did the Cowboys explore the possibility of dealing Jones? With the Arkansas RB entering the final deal of his rookie contract and DeMarco Murray's emergence as a star last season, it would have been crazy not to at least consider the idea.

However, with Murray returning from a gruesome leg injury and no other RB with any experience on the roster, keeping Jones is probably the best move for the team.
