The Dallas Cowboys don't appear to be in a hurry to extend Ezekiel Elliott's contract.

They picked up the running back's fifth-year rookie option earlier this offseason.

Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott may be in line for new deals as well.

"Well, I think those are all a work in progress," Stephen Jones said. "Certainly we've got a couple years there with Zeke to get that done. We certainly want to get him done. He's the straw, if you will, that stirs our drink. He's a key part of what we're about. Those things take time to get done. They don't happen overnight. Certainly he's a priority in terms of ultimately getting him signed. There hasn't really been a timetable put on this."

Elliott has led the NFL in rushing two of the least three seasons.
