Jerry Jones Claims Cowboys Have No Interest In Trading Mike Jenkins

Last weekend, there was a report from ESPN Dallas that suggested the Detroit Lions would be interested in trading for Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins. The Indianapolis Colts are believed to be interested as well, but there's a problem for both teams: Dallas claims it has no interest in dealing Jenkins right now.

Although the Cowboys have maintained this particular stance on Jenkins, the belief has been that they will change their mind and trade Jenkins later in the offseason. For now, at least, Jerry Jones says that isn't the case and that Jenkins will remain in Dallas.

"There's nothing that I can conceive that would help us more as a football team and help us accomplish where we're going to be next year than having Jenkins on the team," Jones said during the team's Wednesday workout at Cowboys Stadium. "I'm sure not interested in anything in the future. I'm all about what we can do (this) year."

Things could always change, but for now it appears that Jenkins isn't going anywhere.
