Cowboys VP hints Ezekiel Elliott’s agent is hurting his interests
Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones is seemingly escalating rhetoric against the agent of holdout running back Ezekiel Elliott.
Jones didn’t name Elliott or agent Rocky Arceneaux in his comments, but suggested that some agents aren’t pursuing the same interests as the players should be.
Cowboys VP Stephen Jones: “I have a lot of respect for most agents. I really do. I think they’re trying to do their job for these players. But I do think sometimes, they don’t have the same endgame that maybe the player should and we do.”

It’s hard to read this as anything but a thinly-veiled shot at Arceneaux and Elliott given their recent comments. Arceneaux, after all, suggested that recent jokes made by Jerry Jones were disrespectful of his client, and that has clearly angered the Jones family. This holdout doesn’t appear likely to end any time soon.
