ezekiel elliott cowboys agrees to 90 million contract extension

Thanks to a recent, large contract extension, Ezekiel Elliott will continue to wear the Cowboys' star for many years to come.  

The Cowboys and Elliott have reached an agreement on a six-year, $90 million extension, according to people with knowledge of the negotiations, as reported by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Jane Slater on Wednesday.   

According to Rapoport, the whole amount is $103 million spread over eight years, with $50 million guaranteed. Later, the group verified the agreement.  

Elliott now earns more than any running back in the league thanks to the contract extension, surpassing Todd Gurley's $14.375 million annual salary.  

He is also the first running back in Cowboys history to have a total worth of more than $100 million.  

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, stated in an interview with CNBC on Wednesday morning that "Zeke has been arguably our best player." "I'm not attempting to treat anyone unfairly. However, he only contributes slightly to our success.  

We are happy that he has joined the team and that he has a reservation. And he plays a position that has some fairly fascinating dynamics because running backs are fleeting; we had Emmitt Smith, who ran the ball for 13 years and is ranked among the top five greatest of all time,  

but Smith is one of the exception. Therefore, to be a running back, you do not need to have a four- or five-year career. However, Zeke gives us the freedom to mess with the defense so much that we can then pass it and make room for Dak Prescott."
