FRISCO – Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday he expects Ezekiel Elliott to run back to the training camp on time. The Cowboys are scheduled to leave for Oxnard, California on Thursday afternoon with an estimated time of 16.00. Pacific.
Recently rumors surfaced that Elliott was considering holding back because he was seeking a new contract, but Garrett said that was not.
"I did not hear anything else."
The Cowboys are trying to reach agreements on new contracts with several top players, including Elliott, who has two years left. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the franchise would keep Elliott in the long run, stating that the $ 45 million promised to Ram's Todd Gurley was a starting point for negotiations. DeMarcus Lawrence has contract negotiations for the quarterback this spring Dak Prescott, the wide receiver Amari Cooper, the cornerback Byron Jones and Elliott slows down. Prescott said the cowboys exchanged suggestions with his agent. The cowboys had talks with the agents for Cooper and Elliott, but nothing substantial that would lead to a new deal. According to one source, nothing has happened between Jones & # 39; Agent and the Cowboys about a new contract.
Elliott is expected to earn a base salary of $ 3.8 million this year and $ 9 million in 2020. The Cowboys could also opt to make Elliott available as a franchise partner for the 2021
Elliott now stays with the Cowboys, at least for another two years, and his expected appearance at the training camp this weekend alleviates concerns about a possible failure.
"We're just focusing on our team and the guys who will be there," Garrett told the Cowboys Clinic annual trainers from the Ford Center. "Zeke had a great off season and was excited about what he can do for our football team."
