Report: Cowboys believe little progress is being made in Ezekiel Elliott talks

Ezekiel Elliott

There is still a total lack of clarity regarding the latest on contract talks between Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys.

The two sides even appear to have a different view of how negotiations are going, according to Mike Leslie of WFAA in Dallas. The running back’s camp believes a deal will be struck soon. The organization, however, feels that little progress was made over the weekend, and while the two sides spoke Monday, nothing is close.

It’s worth noting that the Cowboys have made some moves to back up their belief. On Monday, they promoted running back Jordan Chunn from the practice squad. Whether that’s an attempt to make a statement to Elliott or a reflection of their belief that talks have stalled is unclear. Regardless, if the Cowboys felt that progress was being made, they wouldn’t have any reason to make such a move.

The optimism that grew over the weekend seems to have given way, once again, to a stalemate. That’s not great news with the regular season opener looming on Sunday. It is, perhaps, a growing possibility that the two-time NFL rushing yardage leader won’t be with the team for Week 1.
