Our long Cowboys National nightmare may close to ending. According to Kevin Turner of 105.3 The Fan, there’s news coming in that points to Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys soon reaching an agreement and ending Zeke’s holdout.
The following was just tweeted this morning from Turner’s account:
We had just heard yesterday that Dallas offered Zeke a deal that would make him the second-highest paid RB in football behind Todd Gurley. Was that enough to get Elliott to sign, or perhaps the basis that Zeke’s team used to make a final counteroffer which Dallas agreed to?
Hopefully we’ll find out all those details very soon. For now, we can just take hope in these signs of light at the end of this contract dispute tunnel.
The Cowboys aren’t the same team without Ezekiel Elliott. With so much at stake in this 2019 season, it’s time to get this deal done and get ready to win.
