Default More trouble in Big D? Now Zeke wants more dough

Report: Is Zeke Elliott planning to hold out of training camp?

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has privately said that he will hold out of training camp unless he gets a new contract according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.com.

The Cowboys have not been focusing on signing Elliott to a new deal because he still has two years left (with the fifth-year option) on his rookie contract. They instead rewarded pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence, who played on the franchise tag last year, and are working to sign both quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper-both of whom are scheduled to become free agents after the 2019 season. Due to make a salary of $3.85 million this year and $9.09 million in 2020, Elliott ultimately could looking for at least $10 million per year

Elliott making a stand now makes good business sense as his value to the Cowboys (or any other NFL team) could plummet with another two years of heavy wear-and-tear and the NFL's penchant for seriously devaluing running backs. But the Cowboys, however supportive they may appear in public, may be reluctant to sign their workhorse back longterm considering he is again dealing in with another off-the-field issue after an altercation with a Las Vegas security guard in May.

Given their other pressing issues, it seems unlikely the Cowboys will re-sign Elliott this summer unless he is willing to take a team-friendly deal and they certainly cannot afford to sign him before theylock down Prescott and Cooper. It will be interesting to see if Zeke follows through on the holdout threat.

I'd be kind of surprised if he does. He's got two years left, and they have a couple of guys that they absolutely have to get signed first. And, if he does hold out, I don't expect it to linger into the season.

But, if it does, that'd be great.

I'd be happy to go down to the Big D and pour a little gas on that fire if it would help

Heck no coony if they all post we will be like the bullet, we don't want that do we?

Now if we could get all of them to a race track at one time then we would have a race.
