    Take 9 million a year but more guaranteed years. Stephen dumb *** only looks at money and will cut a one except the q b if they make too much.

    And Stephen s already planning to release him. He made the q b look good and got him a deal along with cooper. Now they’re ready to throw him out with the trash after he ran the. To the playoffs 3 times. If he asks for 6 million per but has it guaranteed for 4 more years, he can. Retire a cowboys and help the team. I’d personally keep him for 5 more years.

    Prescott has been assertive regarding situations away from practice/games, e.g. contacting prospect WR Jalen Tolbert before the draft.
    Will Dak go to bat against Jones & Jones for his draft day colleague, backfield teammate, and friend for 6 years.... going on 7 now?
    Perhaps No.4 gets with No. 21 when 2022 season ends and advises him to "redo" his contract to remain with the team.

    What does Zeke do when he leads the league in rushing yards and rushing TD's this season?

    Bring this up again next year. Zeke's money for this year is guaranteed, and has been since last year.

    It would be a shame to break up such a friendship. Perhaps Dak takes 90% of Zeke's contract out of his base salary for Zeke.

    Personally I'd blow a snot bubble if he did. It's not too far fetched. Look at what Zeke ran for in 2021 and THAT was with a bum knee and abandoning the run game.

    I'll be waiting to hear the Bullish when it happens

    Or - Prescott includes Elliott on a few of his endorsement deals.

    No, please dont take a pay cut. We need him outta here ASAP if there is any hope of revamped run game in Dallas. We must move on from the overpaid, over the hill, slow and plodding, doesnt like to share, wont come out when injured Zeke Elliott.

    Please... this is his last season. Need to get younger in next year's draft. RB's are a dime a dozen. Just like wide outs.

    Zeke is a detriment on the field and with his pay. I wouldnt want him if he cost me 2 million per year.

    LOL...........will take that be for anything you want. Zeke barely hit 1000 yards the last two years and can no longer handle or deserve 350 carries a year.

    Then they better find another back to protect QB1 like he does. I know his yards per carry are down, but no back protects his QB as often or well as Zeke

    Im sorry what did he do? The run game was abandoned because Zeke just sucked at his job and averaged like 3 ypc the 2nd half of the year.

    If he had a bum knee he should have sat down.

    I agree with him that wideouts now have to be treated like RB's. Draft em, 4 or 5 years, then let them go when they want big money. Draft a new one.

    I think churning them is possible in todays game because college teams are developing more WR than ever before
    I’d churn them in the last year if their rookie deal when they have the highest trade value. But that means you have to keep drafting them to make it work
    I’d even be thinking about Lamb very soon

    Agreed. Its because they are pumping them out now. KC and Tenn were brilliant. Have em for 4 years then trade for a first and draft another one.

    Too bad Jerry wont catch on fast enough.
