The Dallas Cowboys are close to completing a contract extension with running back Ezekiel Elliott, reports Charles Robinson.
Clarence Hill Jr. echoes the Cowboys and Elliott are moving toward a deal.
It’s been one of the biggest stories of the offseason as Elliott has been a holdout over his contract, opting to train alone in Cabo. Elliott, who has two years remaining on his rookie contract, has been seeking Todd Gurley money ($15 million annually) in contract negotiations.
The Cowboys have been reluctant to meet his demands but seem to be trying to get a deal done before their Week 1 game next Sunday against the New York Giants. If Elliott is not signed, rookie Tony Pollard is projected to be the lead back in Dallas.
