Ezekiel Elliott admits he did not expect deal to get done Tuesday night

Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was pleased to wake up to a deal on Wednesday morning — but he was a bit surprised, too.

Elliott admitted Wednesday that he went to bed “in a bad place” on Tuesday, as he did not see a deal getting done with the Cowboys when it ultimately did.

It’s an interesting window to where the sides thought talks stood hours before a deal was agreed. We heard recently that Elliott’s camp was more optimistic about getting a deal done, but even Elliott was clearly beset by doubts as late as Tuesday. While negotiations were ongoing for a while, it sounds as if the deal went from close to done very quickly.
