The Dallas Cowboys failed to make a trade during the deadline despite claiming that they really tried too.
According to multiple reports, the Cowboys were linked to Brandin Cooks but couldn’t come to an agreement with the Texans on his salary as Cooks is guaranteed $18 million next season.
Following the report, Tad Prescott, who’s the brother of Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, took to Twitter to express his displeasure with the franchise for always coming up with the same excuses every year when the Cowboys fail to make a trade:
Cooks would’ve given the Cowboys a legitimate ‘WR2’ to go alongside CeeDee Lamb but the money owed to Cooks for the duration of his contract just wasn’t something the Cowboys were interested in paying.
So far in 2022, Cooks has garnered only 32 receptions for 354 yards and a score in seven games
