Ezekiel Elliott: Jerry Jones’ ‘Zeke who’ comment is ‘far behind us’
There are no hard feelings between Ezekiel Elliott and Jerry Jones.
Jones jokingly remarked “Zeke who?” after a standout preseason performance by rookie Tony Pollard in August, a remark that apparently upset some in Elliott’s camp. To Elliott himself, however, the remark is old news, and he added that he hadn’t taken anything said during negotiations personally.
Ezekiel Elliott said he didn't take anything personally that was said during the contract negotiation process.
When asked about Jerry Jones' "Zeke who?" comment: "That's so far behind us. We signed a deal, so there's really no point of talking about that other stuff."

Jones said several things publicly during the negotiation that could be taken as shots at Elliott. One of them prompted an admonishment from Elliott’s agent. Now that Elliott got the richest running back deal in history, however, it’s all water under the bridge.
