According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, The Dallas Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott are close to 6 year-$90 million extension that would keep Zeke in a Cowboy jersey until 2026.
Zeke recently left Cabo to be in Dallas in case a deal got done. According to these reports, the extension should be done sooner, rather than later.
@TrevStonePSE reported that Zeke and the Cowboys would have a deal done by week one a few days ago, and it looks like he was correct.
This news comes after Right Tackle La’el Collins agreed on a 5 year-$50 milli on extension earlier today.
Comp update: Cowboys and OT La’el Collins reached agreement on a five-year, $50 million contract extension that includes $35 million guaranteed, per source. It’s the highest guarantee given to a right tackle.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 3, 2019
According to spotrac.com, the Cowboys should have around $89 million in cap space in 2020. This is of course before taking these two extensions into consideration.
We will wait for the official signing details and update if/when they come in.
Is there enough for Dak Prescott to get paid what he thinks he is worth? Or are the Cowboys drafting a QB next year?
Time will tell what Jerry Jones can pull off.
