I wonder if Dallas ends up trading him.  Zeke, while a very good RB, is a head ache off the field.

Do the Cowgirls want to go into the decisive “is Dak a franchise QB” season without his biggest asset? Intriguing.

Yeah, but he's also the only thing that makes that offense work.  They need him badly.

This is a good point.  Keep a problem child who is the engine to the offense, or get something for him and he is no longer the Cowboy's problem; quite a decision.  He is probably a violation away from a multi game suspension.

I don’t think Dak Prescott is a franchise QB. Everything is going RB by committee and Zeke has off field issues. He is a top 5 RB talent but I just don’t see the RB position having leverage in a hold out.

Interesting off season for RB’s. Two are seeing the Le’Veon Bell overpay and thinking it’s the new market value. I think they are sorely mistaking.

Jerruh is prone to making the wrong choice when it comes to his team. If they are smart, they would trade Zeke, play out Dak's final year, and if needed, reboot in 2020. 

 

I hope they are NOT smart, and end up not being any good for a long time.

Who do these running backs think they are?  RB's just aren't worth what they used to be, get over it.

He already had a 6 gamer so next one will be even worse I assume

With his suspension history, he should play on good faith. Dudes a ticking time bomb and any team would be an idiot to give him long guaranteed money. 

 

That contract would need to have conduct clauses

Not the guy you give a long term deal to.  Gotta prove he can stay on field

oh boy   and a co-worker / friend was just saying that the Boys looked to be in good shape and then we did discuss who was holding out in the NFL 

LOL 

 

and then there is this 

 

Ezekiel Elliott is the "target of extortion," attorneys for the Dallas Cowboys running back said Saturday, after a security guard filed a complaint claiming assault during a May altercation in Las Vegas.
 

"Over the course of the past several weeks, Mr. Elliott has been the target of extortion," attorneys Scott Rosenblum and Jason Lampert said in a statement. "Kyle Johnson's filing of a criminal complaint against Mr. Elliott in connection with the Las Vegas incident is the latest attempt to do so. Mr. Elliott and his team are in contact with all of the proper authorities and are fully cooperating with them in their investigations."

It should work for him, but only because it's Dallas.  Any team with an intelligent owner knows that he's way too much of a liability off the field.  I hope Dallas just lets him sit out.

Not sure how Dallas is going to pay Zeke, Dak, and Amare. It's a bit of a catch 22, with the O-Line being a big reason for their success, but also taking up a good chunk of the cap.

I remember a game years ago where some obscure running back ran for 200 yards or so...Tony Seragusa was like: "I never even heard of the guy!"
