Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones isn’t seeking to make any trades before next week’s deadline but he will listen to any offers that might be made, he said Tuesday.

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, Jones said he won’t be the one to instigate trade talks that could help his 4-2 club.

“It will have to come our way,” Jones said. “The initiation of an opportunity to make a trade that would help us principally has to start over on the other end. That’s not showing a lack of aggressiveness, it’s just how it starts.”

The trade deadline is Oct. 31 at 4 p.m. ET. Jones said he is content to sit back and wait for the right offer.

“I have areas of the team that we could, if certain circumstances happen, that you might improve. Your best chance to get it done is when it comes by you and you grab it,” he said.

He seemingly is happy where is team is now, in what he considers to be in the top tier of the NFC, despite a 42-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5.

“I’m not going to say that we belong on the field with San Fran, and we haven’t played Philly, but I’m anticipating Philadelphia being what they look like,” he said. “So, I don’t want to go that far, but we’re in the upper echelon.”

The Cowboys will get their first crack at their division rival Eagles on Nov. 5 in Philadelphia. They’ll meet in a rematch on Dec. 10 in Arlington, Texas.
