Elliott signs record deal

Well, all’s right in the Dallas Cowboys world and Ezekiel Elliott’s too. They finally knocked out that deal that got Ezekiel Elliott here on Wednesday morning.

The Cowboys signed Ezekiel Elliott to a six-year $90 million extension but essentially it’s an eight-year deal since he had two years left on his contract that he was currently under for $103 million.

So if you do the math on that it comes to about $13 million a year. The deal finally got done at about 4:43 a.m. when Zeke’s representatives called the Cowboys and said they we’re good with it.

But when they went to bed on the other night they said: “no we’re still not good with this.” And I think Ezekiel Elliott was highly frustrated when he went to bed.

So he was relieved that the deal was done and got into practice on Wednesday had the pads on and the Cowboys now have to decide how much he can play on Sunday against the Giants and that will depend on his conditioning and just what they think they can get out of him.

So for the Silver Star Nation, it’s good news here from The Star.
