Is Ezekiel Elliott nearing the end of his Cowboys' tenure? How running backs have become the NFL's most expendable commodities

Is Ezekiel Elliott nearing the end of his Cowboys' tenure? How running backs have become the NFL's most expendable commodities

The comments may have been as innocuous as they sounded. The Cowboys could use one of their precious and few draft picks Friday or Saturday to seek a backup running back to Ezekiel Elliott for the 2019 season.That's mostly what Stephen Jones was saying at the club's news conference this past week. But when you step back and look at the big picture, at what's going on in the NFL and listen to the words of Jerry Jones that day about allocating money, you wonder exactly how many more years Zeke has to wear the star on his helmet.I think the answer is more than two. It's almost certainly not more...

2019 NFL Draft: Six running back prospects for the Cowboys and when they should target them

2019 NFL Draft: Six running back prospects for the Cowboys and when they should target them

The Cowboys will be on the look out for a backup for Ezekiel Elliott but when will they pull the trigger? The Dallas Cowboy don’t have any glaring needs entering the NFL Draft and you can thank the crack-shot staff over at The Star for that. They’re sitting in pretty good shape, but there are some positions where they could use some extra depth and running back is one of those spots. Nobody touched the ball more than Ezekiel Elliott last season as he had a league-high 381 total touches and there were times during the season where you could sense it was catching up to him. The Cowboys...

Commitment issues: Cowboys may be considering life after Zeke

It may be just caution or normal business, but the latest from the team can be interpreted more than one way. The Dallas Cowboys took care of their most important offseason priority when they worked out the new deal with pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence. That leaves them with a quartet of players who are seen, in some order, as the next ones they need to get done: Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, and Byron Jones. The Prescott situation has been attracting all the attention of late in wake of Russell Wilson’s big new contract with the Seattle Seahawks. According to the team,...

Cowboys want a better backup for RB Ezekiel Elliott, but does the role warrant a draft pick?

Cowboys want a better backup for RB Ezekiel Elliott, but does the role warrant a draft pick?

FRISCO -- Of all the positions the Cowboys have addressed this offseason, backup running back is noticeably absent. The team is open about wanting to improve the position behind Ezekiel Elliott, who has won the league rushing title in two of his first three seasons. Dallas needs better insurance if Elliott were to be unavailable or injured. They go to Zeke as much as possible -- he rushed 304 times and led the team in receptions, too, with 77. The Cowboys haven't re-signed Rod Smith during free agency. Last season's backup had 44 carries for 127 yards and a touchdown in 2018. Elliott hasn't...

Stephen Jones: Cowboys have “active” contract talks going on with Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper

The Cowboys are looking to lock two of their biggest offensive stars. It hasn’t even been two weeks since the Dallas Cowboys officially locked down defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, but work on moving forward with other long-term contract extensions rolls on. Lawrence was the first of many Cowboys that need notes of promises from the team. Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, and Byron Jones are just the tip of the iceberg as far as pending extensions, such is the price (no pun intended) of having great, young players. While we hadn’t heard anything about progress being made with...
