This was reported by the daily « Dallas Morning News » Monday evening, a day after the elimination of the Texas club against the San Francisco 49ers in the semifinals of the National Association of the NFL.
Thus, following the 19-12 loss, the running back said he wanted to stay with the “Boys”.
« I really thought about it, » Elliott said when asked about his future with the organization. I want to be here. However, I don’t have a crystal ball. I can’t predict the future, but I really want to be here. »
In 2023, « Zeke » will receive $ 10.9 million, but will have an impact of $ 16.72 million on the payroll of his training.
Elliott recently played his seventh season in the NFL. The wearer, however, was never able to replicate his brilliant performances from his first year on the Goodell circuit. During the most recent season, he had 876 yards and 12 touchdowns on 231 carries.
The first-round pick (fourth overall) in the 2016 draft has shared the Cowboys’ backfield job with Tony Pollard for the past few years.
He has just had his best career campaign. He could become a free agent in the next few weeks, but it looks like the Cowboys are keen on keeping him. Pollard also suffered a broken leg against the Niners and will have to go under the knife.
