Ezekiel Elliott might have just pulled off one of the best contract extensions in NFL history!
Although the rookie still had two years left on his deal, the Cowboys running back reportedly wanted to get paid “like he was the best running back in the league” and has been holding out for a weeks and wasn’t even showing up to practice. Well now, all Dallas fans can take a breath of relief after Elliott and the Cowboys came to a six-year, $90 million contract extension that will jim on the team through the 2026 season.
According to Adam Scheffer, the new deal has officially become the highest paid running back in the league, raking in $15 million per year, with a guaranteed $50 million.
Elliott is expected to return to practice today, Wednesday September 4th, and will most likely play in the season opening game this Sunday.
