Although the Dallas Cowboys have won five straight games and boast the NFL's highest-scoring offense, fans shouldn't be surprised if the team has an aggressive approach prior to the Nov. 2 trade deadline.

"We're open for business year round," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday, according to Jon Machota of The Athletic. "On the other hand, we got a unique situation because we've got players coming that we're gonna have to have roster spots for. We got a little bigger problem than trading for somebody right now."

The Cowboys currently have several players on injured reserve who are expected to return to the active roster soon, including wide receiver Michael Gallup and defensive tackle Neville Gallimore.

Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday he'd welcome a trade, but Dallas currently doesn't have anything in the works with the deadline around the corner.

"It's always nice if there's an opportunity out there," he said. "But at the same time, we have a lot of confidence in this roster."

The Cowboys are among the NFL's most impressive teams after six weeks. Dallas currently ranks first and 21st in overall offense and defense, respectively, according to PFF, and could look for help on the defensive side of the ball.

This is the first time Dallas has started a season 5-1 since the 2016 season. The Cowboys, winners of five Super Bowls, haven't played in the big game since the 1995 campaign. The team has won only two playoff games since 2009.
