Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys reportedly close to agreement on six-year deal

Ezekiel Elliott

The Dallas Cowboys appear to be moving in the right direction in their contract negotiations with Ezekiel Elliott.

Elliott and the Cowboys are closing in on a new deal that would pay the star running back roughly $15 million per year over six years, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports.

Elliott has maintained all along that he wants to be the highest-paid running back in football, and $15 million annually would surpass Todd Gurley’s $14.375 million per year. Of course, all that really matters with an NFL contract is guaranteed money, and Gurley got $45 million guaranteed from the Los Angeles Rams. It would be a surprise if Elliott’s new deal did not surpass or match that number.

While reports about the talks between Elliott and the Cowboys have been all over the place, Zeke was reportedly planning to fly back to Dallas from Mexico on Tuesday. That’s a positive sign for where the negotiations are at and his potential availability for Week 1.
