EVP Stephen Jones doesn't think Cowboys are close to deal with Ezekiel Elliott Despite reports that a deal with Ezekiel Elliott could be coming any day now, Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones thinks it could still be a while before a contract is agreed to by both parties. Speaking during his weekly appearance with 105.3 The Fan, Jones was asked if a deal will happen soon. He replied, “I don’t think we’re close because there’s not a lot of activity.” Jones did say he’s “optimistic” that the Cowboys will have all their stars on the field and hinted that things could come together quickly. “We feel confident things will get done,” said Jones. “Things happen real quick, sometime within hours.

Ezekiel Elliott Seeking Long -Term Security With Cowboys . The Cowboys have reportedly made an offer that would make Elliott the second highest paid running back in the league. Faulk said he doesn’t want Elliott to be in shape — he wants him in game shape, which isn’t easy to do without

Unlike Melvin Gordon, who is also holding out for a new contract with the Los Angeles Chargers, Elliott has not given the Cowboys an ultimatum or demanded a trade. He simply wants a fair market deal. In fact, he reiterated in an interview with Keith Gordon of Maxim that he loves playing in Dallas and wants to be a Cowboy for life.

“I love playing for the Dallas Cowboys, I love the organization, my teammates. I do want to be a Cowboy for the rest of my life and hopefully that’s a possibility,” Elliott said. “But even Emmitt Smith, the greatest running back ever, ended up going to play a couple of years for another organization. So it’s just the nature of the game, but I want to be a Dallas Cowboy for as long as I can.”

Report: Cowboys offer Ezekiel Elliott new contract, near Todd Gurley’s annual average

Report: Cowboys offer Ezekiel Elliott new contract, near Todd Gurley’s annual average The Dallas Cowboys reportedly have upped their contract offer to Ezekiel Elliott in the hopes of getting him back to the team before the start of the regular season. According to Mike Fisher of Maven Sports, Dallas’ new contract offer to Elliott would be put his annual salary “close to the Todd Gurley range.” Previously, it had been reported that the Cowboys were offering Elliott a deal that put him in between Gurley ($14 million per year) and Le’Veon Bell ($13 million per year). The big catch here is that Fisher reports Dallas still does not want to give Elliott the kind of guaranteed money Gurley received in his huge contract extension with the Los Angeles Rams.

ARLINGTON, Tex. — The rivalry between the Giants and the Dallas Cowboys is long and storied. But the young men involved in the teams’ latest white-hot confrontations do not much care about what happened in 1960, the first time the teams met. They do care about recent history.

“ As long as you keep it about the money, it’s fine.” Ezekiel Elliott is sitting out and the Dallas Cowboys are still successful at the running back There are so many options that the Cowboys have that he doesn’t have. Everyone in the world wants to talk about what he should do because they are

Elliott’s holdout has drawn natural comparisons to the ugly situation between Le’Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but there are many differences. The Steelers used the franchise tag on Bell, so he was not technically under contract with the team because he never signed it. They also likely knew he was going to depart in free agency last offseason because they were unwilling to meet his financial demands. Elliott, on the other hand, has two years remaining on his rookie deal. Not only that, but he does not appear to be that far apart in contract talks with Dallas.

Elliott also spoke with Maxim about how contracts like the four-year, $60 million one Todd Gurley signed with the Los Angeles Rams have helped rejuvenate the running back position. It’s no secret that he wants Gurley money or higher, but many feel the Rams overpaid.

While it may seem like Elliott is not on good terms with the Cowboys because he is working out on his own and was openly offended by a comment Jerry Jones made, that is all part of a contract negotiation. The two sides are motivated, so a deal should come sooner rather than later.
