It's expected that the next 24 hours will include a flurry of NFL trades. The Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals kicked things off on Monday with a deal sending RB Kenyan Drake to the NFC West.

But what are the Dallas Cowboys doing before tomorrow's deadline?

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Jones recently said that the Cowboys may be looking into safety help. Per the report, the team may be seeking a replacement for veteran safety Jeff Heath.

Jones said nothing is on the table but he told the Star-Telegram that safety will be the area of focus if the Cowboys do make another move, possibly as a replacement for strong safety Jeff Heath.

The Star-Telegram noted that the Miami Dolphins could make two-time Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones available. However, the report noted that his $13.1 million salary could be too steep.

Another potential target could be either of the New York Jets' starting safeties - Jamal Adams or Marcus Maye. But Jets Wire reported on Monday that Maye is not available.

Dallas has one of the most talent-laden rosters in the league. But at 4-3, if the playoffs were to start today, they'd be a four-seed.

It certainly looks like the Cowboys have some idea of what they're shopping for as the trade deadline approaches.

Stay tuned.
