From the moment that the Dallas Cowboys team charter took off to Oxnard, it’s been on the minds of people all over the world.
When will Ezekiel Elliott return to America’s Team? How long will he hold out? Will they come to terms on a contract extension? If they do, how much? If they don’t, what then? There have been so many questions but at long last we finally have our answer.
Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms on a contract extension... for a lot of money.
Final terms on #Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott: 6 years on the extension, $90M in new money with $50M guaranteed. Paid.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 4, 2019
Zeke has led the NFL in rushing in two of his three seasons since the Cowboys drafted him with the fourth overall pick three years ago. He is one of the best running backs in the National Football League and one of the most potent weapons on offense that Dallas has.
This was a big hurdle that the Cowboys have been facing for some time; however, like their new highly-paid running back they managed to finally hurdle it. With the Zeke holdout officially over all signs point to the season opener against the New York Giants (plus the pending deal with Dak Prescott).
The Cowboys have announced that there will be a press conference at The Star on Thursday (updated for clarity), we’ll be sure to bring you everything from it here at Blogging The Boys.
Here we go.
