Looks like it’s time for Zeke to get fed, or else.
Per a league source, Elliott has privately said that he will hold out of training camp unless he gets a new contract.
“Certainly we’ve got a couple years there with Zeke to get that done,” Cowboys COO Stephen Jones told the PFT PM podcast following the draft when asked about an extension for Elliott. “We certainly want to get him done. He’s the straw, if you will, that stirs our drink. He’s a key part of what we’re about. Those things take time to get done. They don’t happen overnight. Certainly he’s a priority in terms of ultimately getting him signed. There hasn’t really been a timetable put on this.”
Among the names of other Cowboys looking to get paid, quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Amari Cooper, corner Byron Jones and of course, Elliott.
