Jerry Jones makes it clear: Ezekiel Elliott is No. 1 priority

Jerry Jones makes it clear: Ezekiel Elliott is No. 1 priority Entering the offseason with several high-profile players in line for contract extensions, the Cowboys still have their big three on offense attached to rookie deals. But wide receiver Amari Cooper has voiced no issue with playing into a contract year, and owner Jerry Jones said he has no concern about QB Dak Prescott doing the same. Jones said the Cowboys only have to have running back Ezekiel Elliott signed before Week 1, according tor Ed Werder of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Elliott has been a holdout since the Cowboys began training camp. While Cooper has a guaranteed fifth-year option of $13.9M, Prescott is only set to make $2M this season.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Ezekiel Elliott's workload in the opener didn't matter much after the Dallas Cowboys running back missed the entire preseason in a holdout.

Now there are more questions about how soon quarterback Dak Prescott will get the big payday his backfield mate enjoyed just four days before the season started.

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.

Prescott tied his career high with four touchdown passes while throwing for 405 yards, and the Cowboys rolled up 494 yards under new play-caller Kellen Moore in a 35-17 win over Eli Manning and the New York Giants on Sunday.

BOX SCORE: COWBOYS 35, GIANTS 17

Saquon Barkley ran 59 yards on his first carry of the season , setting up Eli Manning's touchdown pass for a 7-0 lead. But the Giants simply couldn't keep up with a Dallas offense anxious to see what could happen at full strength.

As expected, Elliott didn't seem to be in peak form after spending almost all of training camp trying to stay in shape in Mexico while waiting for the $90 million, six-year contract extension that was settled on the morning of the first full workout of the regular season.

Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott's status not worrying Jerry Jones

Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott's status not worrying Jerry Jones Ezekiel Elliott's holdout has lasted for more than a month, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn't anxious about getting his star RB back into the fold.

The two-time NFL rushing champion did find a seam for a 10-yard touchdown to put the Cowboys up 35-10 early in the third quarter. Elliott finished with 53 yards on 13 carries.

But this going-away win was all about Prescott in his second career 400-yard game, in the first game of his fourth season.

Prescott's representatives and the Cowboys were still trying to reach a deal on a new contract in the days before the opener, but now the issue will linger into the season. Perhaps the NFL's best bargain ($2 million salary in the final year of his rookie deal) isn't getting any less expensive.

The 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year thrived in his debut in Moore's offense, making several perfect throws on his way to a perfect passer rating of 158.3.

Prescott completed 25 of 32 passes without an interception, finding seven different receivers while two of them had 100-yard days: Michael Gallup (seven catches for 158 yards) and Amari Cooper (six for 106).

RB Ezekiel Elliott shows off his stuff on this huge run, leading to a nice touchdown pass by QB Dak Prescott to WR Cole Beasley! The Dallas Cowboys take on

One of the on-the-money tosses was a 21-yard touchdown to Cooper, who's in his first full season with Dallas after a midseason trade that boosted a stagnant offense and helped send the Cowboys to their second NFC East title in three seasons with Prescott and Elliott.

Prescott babied a throw to Blake Jarwin because the tight end was so open over the middle on a 28-yard score that was Jarwin's fourth touchdown in two games against the Giants. The other three were in last year's finale at the Giants, also Prescott's other four-TD game.

Jason Witten -- back for a club-record 16th season for Dallas (Manning reached the exact same milestone with the Giants) after a year in retirement as a broadcaster -- scored his 69th career touchdown on a 4-yard grab.

A multitude of offseason changes on defense didn't help the Giants, last in the NFC East in 2018. After taking the early lead on Manning's 1-yard toss to Evan Engram, they gave up TD drives of 75, 93, 83, 75 and 89 yards on five consecutive possessions from the first through third quarters.

EMPTY YARDS

Barkley ended up with 120 yards on 11 carries after the huge opening run along with four catches for 19 yards. But most of those yards didn't matter much because the Giants couldn't get the Cowboys off the field in the first half until the outcome had been decided. Engram had 10 catches for 110 yards. New York ended up with 470 yards.
