A recent report – citing sources close to Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott – says the Dallas franchise running back is planning a training camp contract holdout, despite having two years left on his deal.
Today in The Herd, Colin said the Cowboys shouldn’t be held hostage by Elliott and trade him instead of paying him. It’s undeniable Zeke is one of the top running backs in the NFL, but the running back position has never been more replaceable, and he’s a headache a minute with a seemingly endless stream of off field issues.
Elliott is an elite talent, but his value will never be higher than now, and Jerra could get a haul of assets. Dallas should look to make a deal like Jimmy Johnson did with Herschel Walker.
