Ezekiel Elliott Still Mulling Training Camp Options

Jul 22, 2019 9:16 AM

The Dallas Cowboys will open training camp later this week and it remains to be seen if Ezekiel Elliott will be present.

Elliott and his camp have still not decided whether or not the running back will hold out or show up when veterans report on Friday.

"From what I'm told, as recently as yesterday, all options are still on the table," Rapoport said on the NFL Network. "(Elliott) still has not yet firmly decided whether or not he is going to hold out. If he does not hold out, that means contract talks are going in the right direction or at least he trusts the Cowboys to get a deal done."

Elliott has two years left on his rookie contract, slated to earn $3.853 million this season and $9.099 million on the fifth-year option in 2020, guaranteed for injury only.

Ezekiel Elliott: Need To Work Harder After 'Poor Decision'

Jul 3, 2019 10:05 AM

Ezekiel Elliott has issued a statement about his meeting with Roger Goodell on Tuesday, saying he had made a poor decision in Las Vegas and needs to work harder to not put himself in such situations.

Elliott was briefly detained but not arrested in Las Vegas in May when a security guard fell to the ground after being bumped by the running back.

In his statement, which he posted on social media, Elliott said, "Earlier today, I met with the Commissioner to share with him what occurred in Las Vegas and what I have learned from that incident. I've worked hard to make better decisions and to live up to the high standards that are expected of me. I failed to do that here and I made a poor decision.

"I apologized to [security guard] Kyle Johnson at the time and I meant it.

"I need to work harder to ensure I do not put myself in compromised situations in the future. I am rededicating myself to use all of the resources that the league has made available. But in the end, it is up to me and I am determined not to be in this position again."

The Dallas Cowboys star is subject to a fine or suspension under the league's personal conduct policy, which does not require an arrest or conviction for a player to be penalized.

Randall Cobb: Packers Are An 'Ex-Girlfriend That Broke Up With You'

Jul 1, 2019 8:39 AM

Randall Cobb is a member of the Dallas Cowboys after spending his entire career with the Green Bay Packers.

The Cowboys and Packers play one another on Oct. 6.

"It's like the ex-girlfriend that broke up with you," Cobb said. "When you see her five years later, you hope you're in a better situation than you were before -- married, with kids, and you're able to say, 'Yeah, I did better without you.'"

The Packers never extended Cobb a contract offer in free agency.

"I didn't really have any conversation personally. I don't know how much conversation there was between my agent and the Packers organization," Cobb said. "But I know there was never an offer put on the table -- before or after the offer from Dallas and a couple other teams. I think it kind of made my decision easier. If the Packers would have made an offer, I would obviously have had to weigh that decision. But I'm very excited and very happy to be down in Dallas. I think it's a great situation and I look forward to this season."
