Colin Cowherd Calls Out The Cowboys After NFL Trade Deadline

On Tuesday afternoon, the NFL trade deadline came and went without a significant deal being made. After all of the talk involving Washington Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams and Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, nothing happened.

According to multiple reports, two teams were reportedly close to a deal, though.

The Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets were reportedly close to a deal for star safety Jamal Adams. New York reportedly wanted a first and two second-round picks for Adams, but the Cowboys were only willing to offer a first and a future pick swap.

On Wednesday afternoon, FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd called out Jerry Jones for failing to pull the trigger on a Pro Bowl-caliber player.

"This goes against everything Jerry Jones believes in. Jamal Adams is a special player... You're exactly where you're going to be with Dak at QB unless you surround him with more special people," Cowherd said.

The Cowboys made headlines when they acquired Michael Bennett from the New England Patriots. However, Cowherd thinks the team should have gone all-in on the defense and landed Adams in a trade.

Dallas sits at 4-3 on the season and holds a slight advantage over the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East.

Next up for the Cowboys is a trip to New York to take on the Giants.
