Jones spun away from answering whether the team would fine Elliott.
Now with Elliott's holdout official, the Cowboys will likely have to make a choice between their star running back and quarterback Dak Prescott. I don't want to seem cavalier about it, but I also don't want to be unrealistic being alarmed about it. "This is the air we breathe", owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "You just deal with what you have". "You wouldn't be functioning".
Elliott, 24, has started all 40 games he has played in over the past three seasons. In the spring, they traded proposals with the agent for Prescott.
"It provides for that", Jones said.
But not solid enough to get deals done yet.
In 2015 Garrett signed a five-year extension with the Cowboys worth $30 million. And I've got excited about the work we got done in our OTAs and then our minicamps. There have been rumors that the player is looking to holdout, but the management says otherwise.
According to Yahoo Sports, Elliott, who is seeking a contract extension after shouldering a massive workload in his first three seasons in the National Football League, is looking for a contract that exceeds Todd Gurley's four-year, $57.5 million deal ($14.375 million annually) with the Rams. Cooper is set to make $13.8 million on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal. The fourth-year running back is one of the faces of this franchise, and he has led the league in rushing in two of his three NFL seasons. Sports, Elliott is wanting to leapfrog the deal that the Los Angeles Rams gave to Todd Gurley.
Following a few jokes from Jones, he said "Next question". "One thing we know how to do is figure. We can figure and we can anticipate what the cap is going to be and what the revenues are going to be and what's going to be available".
