The Facts: Elliott has a new massive contract extension that will keep him wearing the Cowboys' star for years to come. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Jane Slater reported Wednesday that the Cowboys and Elliott have agreed to a six-year, $90 million extension, per sources informed of the deal. In all, it's $103 million over eight years, with $50 million guaranteed, Rapoport added.
Diehards Line: The contract extension makes Elliott the top-paid running back, which leapfrogs Todd Gurley's $14.375 million per year. He also is the first Cowboy to eclipse $100 million in total value. .... Ahead of Elliott’s first team practice since June, Slater is told the plan right now is about 20-25 reps on Sunday, rookie Tony Pollard behind him and FB Jamize Olawale as your best blitz pickup guy on 3rd downs. Things can always change but this is the plan heading into today.
