    You could easily replace his production the last few years with a mid round pick. You'd probably upgrade it.

    I was just alerting you in case you didn't know. I used to spell words incorrectly that I thought I was spelling correctly. So, I'm open to having people correct me because I simply may not know.
    Not everyone is open.
    Thanks for not taking offense.

    This FO is completely inept if he isn't gone next year.

    We will see what they will say or do in January of 2023. If he is playing for Dallas in September 2023, this front office will prove it is inept and clueless.

    Not opposed if he earns it with his play this season.

    Does everyone remember they restructured him needlessly last off season making it near impossible to cut him this offseason?

    yes this is what makes what fish is saying silly, as most of us here know they cant dump E due to the stupid contract they gave him!!

    Maybe after the next 2 seasons they can or will, but knowing the jones boys they will extend him again!:omg:

    Right. It's nearly a $12 million extra cap hit to cut him this year. It's stupid to even consider it.

    Next year, they save nearly $5 million against the cap by cutting him, so Elliott will need to play like one of the top five backs in the league in order to not get cut or asked to take a pay cut. It's most likely if he played like one of the top-five backs in the league that we would restructure so that his cap hit for the next couple of years is not nearly as high. And I have no problem with that if he's playing at a high level.

    If I were a tourist (tourist!) and approached by Fish I would give him $5 bucks and walk away quickly.

    Sorry but no. Let's not forget how he "negotiated" his last contract. Nah, let him show that he can earn his money for two seasons in a row without sitting out or anything and then sign him in the middle of his last year. If he plays it ugly again, let him walk.

    Zeke's future with this team is riding on this coming season being a good one for him. This reporter, Fisher doesn't know anything so never believe his BS.

    If Zeke ran for 1200 and 10 tds I would still let him go with that crazy contract.

    I was in the pay Zeke camp and really liked him and wanted him to get payed. Boy was I wrong! I thought he was built like truck and would be a solid back and would last 8 years. Didn't realize the shelf life was going to be so short for him. It seems like ever since Leveon Bell started that dancing routine behind the line of scrimmage waiting for a hole Zeke has seen that and ruined his game. Most of us can see that Zeke is done but it's going to take one more year for Jerry to realize.

    Totally agree! Looking around the league a lot of teams use a stable of RBs.

    Ugh.

    This team is going nowhere. The commitment to bad contracts just doesn't end. If anything, it's getting worse.

    I believe the upgrade of LG combined with the development of 1 of our young Centers will greatly improve the running game

    The decisions that Jerry and Stephen make they give an over abundance of time to succeed. Jason Garrett, Conner Williams, Jaylon Smith, LVE, Kellen Moore, Tristan Hill just to name a few.

    Agree, but then we come back around to Jerry accepting that the football decision to give Zeke the contract was a big mistake....at the time and confirmed in hindsight.

    If comparing to what happened to the Tank contract, we need to take into account that DlAW'S's still getting $35m guaranteed money from 2023. If 'regoing' Zeke's contract still gives him increased guaranteed money moving forward then we just need to bite the bullet and release him in 2023.

    We all point to Zeke as the poster child for bad running back contracts but at least he plays games. Kamara, Henry, and CMC have missed over 6 games in a season since signing there extensions. Gurley and Bell were absolute disasters. I don’t know if one of the big running back contracts have worked out. Word is the Giants tried to trade Barkley in offseason but nobody wanted to offer a premium pick. The 49ers have the blueprint on running backs, the Cowboys need to follow their plan.
