It took some time, but 4 of the newest Dallas Cowboys’ rookies have signed their first deal with the team. Ezekiel Elliott, Anthony Brown, Kavon Frazier, and Darius Jackson are all now under contract and ready for what lies ahead in the 2016 season and beyond! It goes without saying that Ezekiel Elliott headlines this group, as signing his contract is just a formality. Ever since his selection was announced, Cowboys Nation has fully embraced the team’s newest dynamic running back. Even still, there’s a certain level of excitement in seeing Elliott in that Cowboys jacket, smiling as he puts pen to paper.

It goes without saying that Ezekiel Elliott headlines this group, as signing his contract is just a formality. Ever since his selection was announced, Cowboys Nation has fully embraced the team’s newest dynamic running back. Even still, there’s a certain level of excitement in seeing Elliott in that Cowboys jacket, smiling as he puts pen to paper.

Outside of Elliott, the other 3 rookies the team signed today could also make big impacts this season. Another running back, 6th round pick Darius Jackson, will hope to compliment Elliott as a speedy back out of Eastern Michigan.

Click here to read about my projected roles for Elliott and Jackson in 2016, along with the rest of the Cowboys’ offensive rookies.

On the defensive side of the ball, CB Anthony Brown and S Kavon Frazier will try to tighten up a secondary for the Cowboys that could certainly use help. To see my projected roles for the entire defensive draft class, click here.

With 4 signings in the books, the Cowboys still have 5 rookies left to lock up. These would be LB Jaylon Smith, DT Maliek Collins, DE Charles Tapper, QB Dak Prescott, and TE Rico Gathers.

As contract information comes in for this first wave of signings, Inside The Star will keep you updated. Also stay posted to see when the remaining 5 players reach their rookie deals.

UPDATE: According to Todd Archer, Elliott’s deal with the Cowboys is worth $24.9 million, with a $16.3 million signing bonus.

      There’s no arguing that secondary help would be appreciated for this defense, but I’m not sure how much of that Cro can provide anymore. Also not like this front office to grab an aging player like him based on his declining production.
