Dallas Cowboys reportedly turned down trade offers for veteran RBs

After selecting former Ohio State Buckeyes star Ezekiel Elliott with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, teams around the league were looking at the Dallas Cowboys running back depth chart with some interest.

According to reports, teams have been calling the Cowboys to ask about the availability of veteran running backs Darren McFadden  and Alfred Morris.

However, Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones says the team has no interest in trading either player.

“We got calls during the draft asking to trade for a couple of our running backs, and we just don’t have that interest,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram.

McFadden is coming off of one of the most successful years of his professional career, rushing for 1,089 yards last season behind the impressive Cowboys offensive line. Morris has also shown in the past that he can carry the load for an offense.

So while Dallas isn’t interested in losing their depth in the backfield any time soon, they could change their tune closer to the season if someone sweetens their offer.
