"We don't anticipate DeMarcus and Byron being ready to go right at the outset of training camp", said head coach Jason Garrett.

Linebacker Jaylon Smith simply said: "I love the hell out of Zeke". We do that by unit - offense, defense and the kicking game, and we do that by position. We get a chance to relax and get everything fine-tuned tonight. "There are a few other guys who we're going to see about when they have their physicals on Friday morning".

Zeke would be fined $40,000 per day of training camp he misses.

Executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed Friday that the Cowboys have negotiated with Elliott's agents.

Basically, Elliott wants to be paid like the best running back in football if he can get the job done. "So maybe I should be sure and say that".

In February, Trump declared a national emergency and usurped Congress' constitutionally mandated power to allocate funds. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) called Trump's emergency declaration a "pathetic attempt to circumvent Congress".

The 24-year-old Elliott is due to make $3.9 million in the fourth year of his contract and $9.1 million in the final year, which is a team option. Dallas may not be willing to pay Elliott that kind of money.

"To me, this game is a business", Frederick said, per The Athletic. Mike Weber Jr. was a seventh-round choice from Ohio State.

At some point in the next month, Ezekiel Elliott is going to get his contract finalized and be out on the practice field with the Dallas Cowboys.

For the second time in three seasons, the Cowboys finished on top of the NFC East a year ago, although the Eagles were still at least able to earn the final Wild Card spot in the NFC playoff picture. We've got a lot of talent out there.

He earned his second rushing title in three years with 1,434 yards on a league-high 304 carries with six touchdowns last season, while adding 77 receptions for 567 yards with three touchdowns. And if a holdout is on the cards for Elliott, he might eventually get the Cowboys to offer him a new and more favorable contract before the 2019 regular season starts.
