Ezekiel Elliott just got PAID

The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to a massive new deal for running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Fox Sports released this report:

"A person with knowledge of the deal says the Dallas Cowboys have reached agreement on a $90 million, six-year contract extension that will make Ezekiel Elliott the highest-paid running back in the NFL and end a holdout that lasted the entire preseason.

The breakthrough was finalized Wednesday, the day of the team’s first full workout for the opener at home against the New York Giants. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced. Elliott, who has two years remaining on his current deal, will get $50 million guaranteed.

The standoff between Dallas and the two-time NFL rushing champion came with the Cowboys holding high expectations coming off their first playoff win with Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott. They’ve won two NFC East titles in three seasons together."

The Cowboys have now confirmed the new deal through social media.
