Sports leagues face challenges amid plans to reopen
"Sports world, facing setbacks as leagues hope for a return according to reports several NFL. Players including cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott testing positive for covid nineteen. It comes as Brooklyn. Nets star Kyrie Irving reportedly said he was against the NBA's return. Due to nationwide protests, CNBC DOT COM sports business reporter Jabari, your US tonight along with mark, Ganassi's the CO founder of Sports Marketing Powerhouse Sports Core Gentlemen. It is good to see you mark to the NFL I. How is this news of the positive test playing out? You think in the League office or better, yet Roger Goodell's basement. and which which holds which basement that is into night? Here's the thing Scott. The NFL fully expected that there would be. Positive cases the NFL players are part of society, so they knew it was a matter of when not if it protocols in place, they've been working with doctors and medical with the Players Association. They're doctors and with doctors all across the country and the CDC and they've got this sudden got this covered. This was now it said the phases isolation then the next protocol. Protocol will be participation, so they actually expected this. They actually specter will be will test positive even in the fall when Games are taking place. I was GONNA ask you. What is the League willing to tolerate? Do you think in terms of a case number? It sounds from you as though they are expecting that these cases could rise in. They're still gonNA play. They are expecting. There will be cases, but they do expect you know. Three months ago we just got the virus just took root and look how much more we know three months later. The NFL season doesn't start for three months from now imagine how much more information image the protocols that will know that are better and how to deal with it that we'll know in three months, so the NFL is going to use this time wisely it's GonNa Learn. What happens with the NBA Major? League Baseball, the NHL MLS on the soccer. Soccer Teams in your even the Australian rugby they're in contact with to make sure that the NFL the NFL players, association, have as much information as they can have the best procedures and protocols, so the season takes place, and if there are players that that get virus, they will be isolated. They'll be treated in the games will still take place okay speaking of the NBA. Let's bring in Jabari young now in Jabbar. We have issues as we said possibly. As it relates to the NBA coming back as well. What can you tell us tonight? Well, it's just the same. The internal friction! Players probably. Did Not were not aware of all of the dynamics of what debt bubble Dannon. Landau was going to tell. They know that the MLS is want beat. They didn't know that a Disney up. Employees were not going to be quarantine is so now you have a whole bunch of questions from a league body. That's wondering okay. What's going on? And what are we going to do? Sky's get tested nothing. Obviously you see God like the White Howard and Kyrie Irving. Having their own issues with going back because of the protests in what's going without country from a social injustice standpoint, they have every right to stand up for what they believe in, but from an economic standpoint, the players stand to lose a lot of money. If they don't go back so I don't think there's anybody around the league right now. Thinking that July one NBA wants to come back. That date is not gonNA still be fulfilled I just think as a matter of. of WHO's going to go on the NBA has made it clear. They're not forcing anybody to go, but if you don't go, you don't get paid so if the players don't go, they just sit out. They don't get paid and I think that'll have their own form of protests. Some are voicing their concerns. That may be going would be better because of the high profile that the players would have maybe Lebron James Among those taking that stand. What do you know about that? Absolutely. That's the platform you when you down in the NBA platform and I don't think the NBA, nor espn a northerner sports which the Games will air on would have any problem with the players expressing themselves and I think if you players right now. Maybe you kind of go to the table you go to the owners, and you try to get more, and you say. Hey, listen you want us to come back. How each owner donate to some type of social injustice organization, some type of economic reform in a neighborhood. How `bout to force the owners to give back. You guys want us to go back down there. You want us to risk our lives you. You want out health to wants to go play Hibachi give back to black communities are more than which doing set initiatives aside use this platform to not only makes a Mega Stan, but use it for economic purposes, because guess what the owner Dan and make a lot of money from the NBA players coming back down and Landau and risking their lives and play.

Cowboys to move on without Jason Garrett
"Jason Garrett's time up as coach of the Dallas Cowboys Edward a reporting Jerry Stephen Jones have decided coach will not be part of the organization moving forward on Friday and paid Simmons on why this process lasted so long after the season to other Jerry and Stephen Jones have moved slowly out of respect for Jason Garrett you know they have a long history with him as a backup quarterback you to this is that coach a head coach's father was in the organization when Jerry bapa team as a scout and they finally concluded that phase of this process and that's going to end with Jason Garrett not being a part of the organization beyond his expiring contract and when exactly they make that announcement I thought sure what I've been told soon and that the next phase will have them moving into the process of interviewing candidates in the battle begin quickly after phase one is totally finished off yes was contract set to expire January fourteenth status with the team at issue since last February the cowboys didn't give a contract extension they missed the playoffs in twenty nineteen finish eight neighbor the four time in his tenure as coach Keyshawn Johnson on the job candidates and Jerry Jones himself he was on sports and we stand ready to make a decision on it there was the eight their long term in the obvious would clearly felt that their work you say while they waited till Thursday well the food that just won't really it just is so you kind of say okay take a deep breath we get back to the facilities we talk about a little bit we think about we pondered overnight we need or Thursday we meet on Tuesday we meet on Wednesday we have a conversation and we finally so you know women the best thing for us to do if not give the public what they looking for what they looking for me to do is be extremely mad and walk out of there on Sunday night if fire you on the tarmac so instead of doing that this call wait a couple days are you playing for the cowboys you're familiar with Jerry Jones and and and his thinking all what happens next now in this search for the next cowboys head coach I think a guy like Mike Zimmer Minnesota Vikings head coach could potentially be a candidate you say how could that be well I I II coach there in the deepest corner along try defensive coordinator for Jerry Jones is the bill Parcells fact either stay here they know what they're getting in that particular coach but also there's a young officer coordinator in cabin step band he this sitting there in Minnesota the Minnesota Vikings don't want to part ways with him they don't want him all of a sudden start to get interviews and become a category another team so I would be surprised if somehow might dimmer wind up being the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in the cabinet she takes over as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings so a lot of story lines this call come about here over the next with date but I think this time around you will get the head coaching job right where the coach may be season one more before we go do you think that at this point Jerry Jones is ready to surrender more control to a head coach now then he has been willing to in the past as bill Parcells left and and I want to turn this on your stamina I am right now status is not a defense Jerry Jones was some what he is and even as well as we clay as well as Jerry junior what is your you Jones gone wrong with that organization other than the head coaching hire that's a very good question that's very good everybody everybody everybody said here you're you're here the one on that team thank you for calling the latter team for the National Football League I would I would argue and say that their top five channels it is four tally dole is a National Football League the problem is that head coach because you're you're not holding the plate yeah well that gives the player is a free pass for having innate need season the talent on the field didn't win enough games he and Garrett will finish as the second longest tenured and second most winningest coach in team history Tom Landry a record of eighty five and sixty seven the wonders to playoff games unable to get past the divisional round Mike wells Myron Medcalf on Freddie Fitzsimmons the Dallas Cowboys there you know they draw attention but the the the days of being America's team and wanted to be part of what is age and it's not the same anymore it is not the same strictly because of what you have to deal with away from just coaching of football team is not simply you know put together a strong staff the coaster brakes of Amari Cooper Ezekiel Elliott and dak Prescott it's also having the answer constant questions from your boss the owner Jerry Jones deck could become a headache when you're you can't simply just focus on the task of putting your team in the proper position the try to have success there's a side show that comes with it and some people are built or not built to be able to deal with that so you got to find the right coach who is not only a great Exynos guy but somebody who's mentally strong enough to handle the constant you know looking over the shoulders and the pestering of your boss meddling in the inside of things wonder why things are not going well or to give us suggestions on what you should be doing that's not something easy that everybody can handle that type of situation well it and not everybody wants it and that's why I think a lot of these cultures your Matt rules related rallies urban Meyer's why except that to me if you're not going to modernize the structure of your organization so that your owner can do what every other owner does and take a backseat and not be this forward facing figure who's hosting its own press conferences after the game sometimes undermining the head coach then then how can you expect to attract a great candidate bomb out rule no one eight I'm leaving Baylor I got a chance to build something there if I'm leak in Raleigh I'm in Oklahoma and every year I get a chance to go to the college football playoff leave in Oklahoma where I can coach for another decade at least about continue to succeed ever murmur Meyer I'm not leaving LA or on the TV analyst making good money watching a lot of football injuries bouncing around the country see a lot of teams to go to Dallas where I've got a deal with Jerry that's why I think it's going to be difficult if Jerry Jones wants to continue to be Jerry Jones I don't think Mike he's going to end up with any of the top candidates identifying potential replacements Bobby carpenter and fox college football reporter Bruce Feldman gas on Freddie impede Simmons Stephen Jones Jerry Jones offered that coaching job urban Meyer she would say I think that's a hard job to say no urban probably wouldn't be needing to be for another year is that all you but who knows enough the big job at the glamorous job and remember the nose you know damn owns his courage and damn ongoing expound acted it all back thank god yeah I was supposed to do the oil itself journal part of mine and to buy that it was offered so you're going to want to meet your need to guide it was a proven track record we've done it before who's been in the playoffs the only guy that I look at the newest hires cycle that's really available is Mike McCarthy and it's free thank god I'm not that I'm not the biggest Mike McCarthy stand the world but he's the only guy that it holds no one Barty and that is the only thing that Jerry Jones once he is getting older is that you know you if you spend more time on this earth that he's going to spend has the last was starving if you get that oracle Marty troche with them of the order would love to put it in there Mike you've done that you chose to leave and you've been in the playoffs he's done a good job that would be my selection I don't know if they don't know what it does do checks all

The Dallas Cowboys and their internal battle for an offensive identity
"You're if you bet football if your fantasy football all I just love football and what kind of meat sandwich the little. Bits and pieces of film study of Greg Cosell forty years. NFL films somebody. I rely on for the draft after I rely on for a lot of my insight and Greg Cosell is joining us. Greg how were you pre-thanksgiving. How are you doing great? Hope you have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow. Thank Hugh very much. So we watched Dallas in New England. One of my questions with Dallas all year has been. What is their offense of identity? When you watch film what what do you think? They think they're offensive identity. Is I think they're struggling right now. To determining whether their offense still runs through through Ezekiel Elliott or whether they believe that they can transition into a little bit more of a passing team. Given the fact that they're three receivers are among the top two-three receiving trios in the NFL The other issue. I think they're struggling with that. Plays into this is the fact that for the most part over the last three or four weeks. They've not run on the ball as efficiently as they had earlier in the season. So I think they're. They're struggling with exactly what their identity is. They had a really difficult time with New England when you play new England Colin. You have to be able to defeat man coverage you can do that with scheme or you can do that by finding your best individual matchups. They really couldn't do either. Or and Prescott had a bad game in a game like that you don't get a lot of throws and when you do get those throws you have to make them and he missed them and I and therefore they really struggled to move the
Cowboys’ Dak Prescott earning bigger bucks with every start
"What Sunday Sunday's thirty five to twenty seven win over the Detroit? Lions Dak Prescott became one of only two quarterbacks in NFL history with four games of at least three hundred seventy five yards passing two touchdown passes to be first ten games of a season the other. US Oh yeah. That's Joe Montana or a cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman is rallying for Dak tweeting Sunday. I say a man on that note. We welcome Dominique Foxworth on me on that note though. Pay That man. That's it's a good note to come in on. I'M GONNA. I'm Oh no question. Stephanie Has Dak earned his elite payday do better thought he owned it before the season began. I thought he deserved to be paid eight. I thought he deserved to be paid along the same lines as costs winter particularly considering the fact that he's had a considerably better season than Carson Wentz. I think he's validated that even more. I'd like to also stay this though. Even though costs at once had an abundance of people dropping his passes at this number should be better it does not negate the fact the Dak Prescott has looked better. You have a new officer coordinated. Clearly you prioritize passing instead of running you have answered the call and the biggest thing for me that resonate with that that resonates with this something. Say something to be said about filming in the moment now we usually use use it clutch moments when the precious own. Well guess what the pressure has been on Dak Prescott before the ball tipped off the season because you never got paid. It's football. It's a violent sport. You play the quarterback position so you are a target stationary or otherwise for two hundred. Seventy pound lineman Georgian of forty to fifty pound linebackers and everything in between you literally putting your body and your life on the line every single snap you take yes. Here's a guy that is getting paid two million dollars in an age where we've got Russell Wilson example. Getting paid thirty five. This is this guy is getting paid. Two million dollars no security in an age where we've got guys sign up for a hundred and thirty one hundred and forty million dollars. There plays his position and he goes out and he plays. He's like this complete nearly sixty percent of his passes. Got About Twenty One touchdowns nine interceptions. Okay over the last three games. He's throwing nine touchdowns just two interceptions exceptions. You just can't stay Arazi deal Elliott struggling over the last two games combined. Ezekiel Elliott doesn't even have a hundred dollars over the last two games. I think it was forty seven a couple of weeks. Let's go over twenty five last week and look at that and Dak Prescott doing what he does. I think he has more than validated that he deserves his money and he deserves reading.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott back at practice
"The way zeke is now at practice for the cowboys. He signed his contract about fifty million bucks a year which is top of the class. It's in that todd gurley class and i know the rams this morning love their todd gurley contract is he got hurt but zeke zeke is an important player. I don't buy that zeke's the most important player i think dak prescott is the franchise. He's gonna make over double zeke makes he's the guy went in front of the microphone. He's the guy won't touch the ball late but zeke isn't a lot of wow he's twenty three touchdowns thirty five hundred yards but he went a bunch of games and i think he's a grown up in an adult and i think it's dax team. I don't think it's zeke's team. Although i think zeke is really talented. I think aaron donald really talented but i think it's jared goff's team in sean mcvay team not aaron donald in los angeles but i will say if you're a high school running back in college running back n._f._l. Running back this is a good day for you because zeke got paid and there is this narrative out there now that running backs analytically don't deserve the the money

"Just you know mac right a good way when he wants jason. I'm looking on like he just you know whenever uh houston loss can tame and he went on the edge. I mean he ran the balls like okay. There's there's twenty yards stymie. Look up and it's one hundred fifth yard. He's very deceptive acceptive because he doesn't he doesn't have he's not as quick as kyla murray but who is but i was just amazed i looked up there and he's he's stone for three hundred and fifty yards and rushed for one sixty. I mean it's crazy but your question i'd i'd say could be done but after that first bar there could the three heisman trophy winners in pro at oklahoma. Wouldn't that be crazy. That would be nice and you know last week at this time. I think everybody thought <hes> trevor lawrence was going to be the guy he's yeah. Jalen hurts really showed up tony. We got a fun on season up ahead. It all starts on sunday good to be back home. Norman was great. I saw you rock and the letterman. If you'll good yeah it was so we're in the locker birmingham that pitcher i posted if a hall of famers as old hall of famers in there which was a student group but we're gonna lock remove and there's that was a recruits behind us and these guys they look in that pitcher they'd just looked so what am i doing here. We had our letterman's jackets but anyway it was a great time to see those young and the old and yelled so that i used to have a letter jacket like that. I think is still up in my attic but the one that they gave us aware aware at pitcher the one i got's reversible swayed on the inside in excess but it's it's probably there's no telling what's eating that thing up in my attic but that's that's pretty cool.

"The cowboys and you're you're part of something that's at times seems larger than live because you sing it you seeing the struggles in the last twenty five years. A cowboys hadn't won anything and yet. They're the most values sports franchise in the world so i think a lot of that goes along with it. I think jason smith and i think ultimately ultimately jerry jones is a businessman and he will do things that are that are cut throat but he likes you. He pays you and takes care of we then. I'll send you feel like there's acceptance and you're one of his one of his one of his people and just one of the family you know and i think that that's what he does a good job bob look around you. I mean you get on a run and i'd say i'd tell these and i tell stories all the time about being a cowboy back in the nineties needs and the rockstar years but fast forward to twenty years later and there is still somewhat a demand for an old ask cowboy boy that has to simple ranks so i embrace that and i don't run from it i mean i think we try to do things and go and develop business and everything but ultimately it comes back to you and i i in r._j. I will say this the people a lot older the remember me but the people don't forget the success that you have especially in that area so yeah. That is the brand that's part of the whole thing that makes sense and it's it makes sense that jerry would be able to to get certain guys to understand it. I mean it's not a coincidence that cowboys pro shops are now selling you know. Jalen is clear. I view we need to see if we can get ourselves a couple of weeks. Thanks got new. He's got a new jersey hot. Yeah i mean you say it's not white but grey right yeah. I and it's funny because my son we went back to normal last week and we want to win the business. He's a freshman there and my wife had to buy him some something because he she bought for my daughter his twin sister guess what he wanted freaking baker mayfield jersey guess how my cost asked my wife one hundred dollars hundred fifty bucks wow well i mean hey but that your son's sooner now at the guy but my point is has it does the the the apparel and the the jerseys are very expensive and so again in san zeke signs and you mentioned dana smith. Hey that's the first thing the marketing the genius of the marketing of the dallas cowboys and there's a reason why that the cowboys and and if they're playing against the marquis marquis opponent made the giants game for instance. I guarantee we'll we know this r._j. The most watched n._f._l. Game on sunday without a doubt because that's what they carry. It's <hes> it's really interesting yeah. It's really interesting. It's really fine. You mentioned the giants game. This was kind of our are are reset. Get back to normal. We'll preview the giants game and kind of what we're looking forward to <hes> later in the week but i think you mentioned it. Tony these are three. I don't wanna call him cupcakes but these are three not softballs but they're three less intimidating games facing the cowboys starting the season well. It's a great way to gray momentum madam as you mentioned r._j. The winnable games and i'm looking at those first regains and when you got to home the home opener against the giants it's which is probably the better on offense in line <hes> but they have issues a around. They got saquon barkley tremendous talent and they got allied landing. I mean that's got daniel johns looking over shoulder so but that's a winnable game and then they you know the following week they go to washington and i don't know helter skelter. I don't know what washington is going to have this year but i know it'll be a tough game on the road but that should be a i'm gonna say easy when they got the dolphins was probably it'd be taking aching. They got <hes> ryan fitzpatrick man. That's crazy the guy he's just like the energizer bunny i mean he just keeps on going on right now..

"Of this team that is deep everywhere and if that works like why does people are so stuck on a look at look at aaron rodgers he's perhaps the greatest talent ever play the position but he's on a team that is really weak and individually cannot elevate that so i mean even having in aaron rodgers cannot necessarily fix your problems at that makes sense yeah. He said he can't care the team because he's just he's. He's not capable of. I mean he needs some help and more balanced anson he's had injuries and then. Jacoby said he'd just get a nice extension now. Since he's the guy he did years two years thirty thirty. Five male saw also so there's a prime example is a guy that is played but it's been more of a backup role now. He's a starter and they're saying okay. Here's the keys and and by the way we're gonna give you a nice little race but yeah. I think you have to have balance. I mean we talk about it all the time most good teams in the national football league at balance the new england patriots at balanced may when iran at <hes> last year where they run the football in the last part of the season because you know they just became more of a running team the super bowl and then playoffs look what they do. They're able to run the football of course that's gonna make tom brady mean that the super bowl always <hes> the lowest in the low scoring super bowls ever but to my point my point is is that you got to have balance and no one's ever got aunty for having balanced because when you play a team defense on you have to think about different things and more of a dual threat than a lot harder so everyone wants that problem if we had the problem and guess what that means you better players and unfortunately or fortunately for guys that are on that team. They're going to get paid what they're what the value is. I wanna ask you tony about the jalen smith contract and that really about the financials of it but since we haven't seven five <hes> since it happened since it does kind kind of relate to everything going on jalen talked about the brand equity associated with the cowboys and how he wanted to be a part of it and how he recognized it and we know that jalen and could be on shark tank if you want to. He's this really sort of entrepreneurial person. <hes> what are your thoughts on that because i mean you've got a career in the media. I mean you know i mean in to to be frank. I mean is that would ju- attribute that to being a part of the dallas cowboys and specifically being a part of a cowboys group that one you know when you were there two super bowls. I i remember when brett farve retired. There's a lot of people that a lot of guys retired and i said well. I just want to get as far away from football as i can remember brett far says you know that's not me. I'll football always be part of my life. I mean it is a matter if you've been playing for twenty years and i think for me and you no you look in my office behind me. I have a lot of cowboys stop jersey but think being able to be on the part of a team now. Had i not played for the cowboys all boys during the nineties and maybe my life would be a little different but being part of a team that has the brand and people hate to hear that but i think everyone wand reluctant reluctantly says that is on other teams nasa football league that there's something about the star and i'm not just saying that because i was part out of two super bowl teams and played and on a great i would say dynasty team understood. It stays with you and i think if you look at jalen smith breath this is hold. The kadhamy in the type of guy is in the story but you can't. It's a great movie. I mean i would pay fifteen bucks ago watched watch that movie because i know what the indian is something great and so i think a lotta guys especially whenever you're with.

"All those players justify getting extension and contracts jason smith breath we all know the story about him and riff injury and no no one really thought that he would be where he is now because it just how bad injury and what a story that is and so they rewarded him which i think is great the bill to see a guy really just work through hell and just really does work his ass off and get rewarded lael. Collins is another story look what happened when he got drafted allocation. We all know that the there was some there was some really odd a crime that he was basically a named in and and drop them out of the first round has created cowboys suck a flower on him they signed and they gave you know two years ago toward that dill up and extend his contract paid him and then in indiana zeke and you mentioned all these guys that they brought what in the cowboys drafted and really justified why they should get paid and without a doubt. I mean again with zeke elliot. I mean it's a no brainer main. I mean you know you. You have to pay the dude. You have to give him what you know. He deserves and look. I mean back mean everyone. There's always a kind of a question mark and what he can do but i think his i think more than more than anyone else in his team i guarantee daquan zeke elliot the beside because again and it takes a little pressure off dax not all of a sudden had to be the guy tony pollard this expectation guy that had a great preseason okay precincts and i mind that so i think that this is so many things that were factor getting a deal done but i think without that their offense and is collectively kelly moore more jason garrett. I mean just to get this these these things don and put it behind him and move on because we all know there is a lot riding on this season listen. I think this year in in just directly in just looking at what is the expectation on this team. I don't remember your when there's so much ex patient expectation on this especially when it involves a coach's ass in his head job football is finally back doc and nothing adds to the excitement of watching that first game like having a shot at a million dollars draft kings the leader in one day fantasy football is celebrating.

"And now zeke elliott. Almost two hundred million dollars guaranteed to off lettuce crazy crazy so the thanks that the n._f._l. Jerry jones don't have money to pay players. I mean there's a prime example that so oh jerry essentially in the cowboys on a spending spree in his frenzy and i think they got one more couple of guys left in the crosshairs but certainly and as you mentioned lyle collins jalen smith i mean we haven't done the 750 since as jalen smith signed his big deal but <hes> this a lot of a lot of money follow now l. skies and a lot of players in the national football league especially dallas cowboys this filthy rich do you do you because you've you've negotiated shaded with jerry and you've had representation do that. I mean has pie thing that he's been talking about. This whole time is that is that old. Is that something he's used before or is that new. I mean what what how times change i guess from when you were at the negotiating thing. I think every only thing that's changed is how much money players are making now this how big the t._v. t._v. Revenue contracts are in the salary cap how that's just grown distinct spanish italy and yeah. I think that there are certain pi. The shape of the pie is allocated located for different players and i don't know if that that ties about three hundred mil over duration of some of these contracts or did you just mentioned over two hundred million dollars with a guaranteed money money so i think there's a big sliver of that pie allocated towards obviously mark cooper and obviously dak prescott which he'll get his deal dumb but yeah i that's. That's the system and i think that's what all the excuse me all the n._f._l. Owners us and and if you look around the national football league not only count dallas cowboys get paid. Jared goff gets a huge deal out l._a. Rans over one hundred million dollars guarantee the highest guaranteed contracts ever national football league so don't you think r. j. don't you think the dak prescott to saint okay. I see exactly how how much all these other guys are making. I'm gonna get mine just being patient and i'm gonna get filthy rich too well so the thing is really interesting and this is all just one one. I mean it's just one pot of like. Have you ever done that thing. Where like you and your wife don't know what to eat for dinner and it's kind of like what do we have if rages just like we got a little bit of this a little bit of that and you just kind of kind of snack on stuff. It's kind of i think where this contract discussion is. Now obviously slay jared goff getting his deal by the way jarod goff. Nobody wants to talk about him. In the national media on wednesday it's all about the zeke but i mean and so the cowboys are last right because carson wentz got his deal. This offseason graph got his deal and so their last but it's hard to kill them for that because they've they've just been chilling again. They've given out almost two hundred million dollars in guaranteed afford different players. They've been really hustling on the books and so this is just unfortunate but they're gonna that. I mean you know. Jared goff's getting thirty three million dollars per year. I mean they're gonna have to give thirty four right. I mean that's the way this works. I guess the price of playing poker. I i think whether people like it or not there so there's so many fans out there resistance against some guys get paid and i don't.

Dallas Cowboys to make Ezekiel Elliott the NFL’s highest-paid running back
"Or burger we start this time around with the NFL as Ezekiel Elliott is now the highest paid running back in the league after he agreed to a six year ninety million dollar contract extension earlier today with the Dallas Cowboys fifty million of that money comes in the form of guarantees Elliot is expected to play for the cowboys in Sunday's regular season opener against the New York
Jerry Jones talked the talk. But Ezekiel Elliott knew Cowboys owner would pay up
"Begin begins today with jerry jones closing in on a deal with ezekiel elliott as he said he would elliott has flown back from parts unknown and jones's put the money on the table. The dealers is reported to be somewhere in the neighborhood of ninety million dollars for six years which is a pretty nice neighborhood frank. Did the cowboys do the right thing by showing zeke the money yeah well. We know how it works tony. It's all about the guaranteed money so right now. If it's six years of actually being eight year contract because we being extension still has two years left. I think jerry jones and i think is equal. It all knew that he was going to be backed by week one. I think this whole thing all along him going to mexico wherever he was working out. He knew that he would be back. I think he's our most important offensive player and to the point point. Jerry jones is desperate desperate to win the super bowl and he thinks he needs ezekiel elliott and he didn't wanna missing one game so i'm gonna push back gently because they need suzuki and this had to be done. I'm not sure they need ezekiel elliott right now. This has nothing to do with money. In my mind i think they open with the giants the better team than the giants and the redskins. They're a better team than the redskins. I think what went on in jerry's mine is the specter of emmett smith when they went oh and two and he had to publicly sort of eat crow and go and give him the money now. I think you always want ezekiel elliott and to your point. He is their offense. This is not the kid from san diego dago melvin gordon yeah. They don't really need like you put dak prescott out there without zeke elliott and they don't really have a great offense. I'm just i'm just suggesting that it could have been because they're gonna. They're gonna give him the ball so much that he could get hurt. I could they wait for you. Want load management then in the n._f._l. N._f._l. I want him to make sure if i'm trying to win the super bowl. I wanna make sure i understand there's sixteen games before you get to the price. You're my lead guy but you're bringing being up. Emmett smith and emmett smith played with more battle-tested quarterback number one. Yes a better team. They went on to win the super bowl. This team has a long way to go before they can do that. I guess it's it's too important. You know the gauging your talk just chunking up saying they're they're guaranteed win. I don't i don't but that's how that's what jerry jones said. Maybe we'll get him back in a week. We need them in time for the playoffs. Yes you sure you're gonna make. I'm not saying i would wait till the playoffs. That's what he well. He made it sound like we don't need in the first few weeks. We'll play that is public. Posturing that jerry does very very well but the money's money's on the table
Ezekiel Elliott, agent touch down to finalize Cowboys deal
"Our reporter edward or who was in dallas following zeke situation closely. He said i've been told that agent. Rocky arsenault is traveling with running back ezekiel elliott from kabul to dallas. Remember zeke was working out in kabul bob now traveling back to his team's hometown source said an agreement between the team and the two-time n._f._l. Rushing champion is very close. Good news for cowboys cowboys fans as one is a pun us and it would be a good time to agree to a new deal multiple reports say again zeke left kabul to be back in dallas the hope being that if and when a deal gets done he would be in close proximity to the team and could rejoin them very quickly quickly michael. We'd said i this well. It's obviously <hes> on tuesday. You better be preparing with the people that you've got available to you for sunday and so we're working with the people that we have out here now and the ones that we have that we were going to be on the field and that's how we're preparing it will be great will be and would be great if a short period of time passes that zeke would be in that group but we'll see how wow today goes. We'll see how tamara goes. We'll see how the ensuing hours pan out again. Jerry jones commenting on this as he has throughout the process sometimes with better results than others but in any event when i said to you hey rocky. Our snow is with zeke elliot. He said you said what that is. Typically assigned things close. Yes yes exactly when the agents coming with the player that means. We're at the one yard line. We have some details to work out and again. We gotta remember that zeke elliott's already under contract so that's important he just joke right back in in terms of gain the physical done and sometimes it may take a day or two to work out the details with the agent get the approval in terms of some of the details worked out but in the meantime he could get the weekly game plan and there's speaking acclimated back <hes> very quickly so hopefully this gets resolved over the next day or so well jackie said this earlier but just to underscore underscore the point that sooner is better having said that you feel like as long as he's in camp. I mean not camp. I'm sorry with with the team and in practice by thursday day to be in the plan on thursday needs to be in by wednesday so so we gotta be close in order to go twenty four hours or so but it doesn't surly a matter how many players but it could be the most important place and we talked about this earlier you know just from past protections point he may be out there on third downs and in non non running situations because of his conditioning. Tony pollard has taken every rep in every meeting so i got to imagine that tony pollard even with zeke there this week will be a big part of the game well. It's so easy to think about zeke and to be effective. He's got to have the football on his hands but to your point pass protection is something he can do and has done and if that's what it is this week then so be it then you surviving advance so to

Preseason here we go it is quickly approaching coaching and zeke ezekiel elliott is still not in cowboy camp and i gotta tell you i really enjoying the cowboys off season drama. I i never knew that. Jerry jones and steven jones were pro wrestlers but they are tag team partners one day. It's jerry banging on zeke. The next next steven jones banging on d. Then it's jerry banging on zeke and steven jones begging on zeke. These guys are tag team partners w._w._e. Which by the way is coming to fox experi soon. Let me go to the first thing. Jerry came out. Remember that and jerry said you can win. Super bowls without star running backs and then stephen even came out and said couple days later you know any money we give zeke has just taken away from other cowboy stars and jerry came came out yesterday and said albert alfred morris the running back they signed has the best feel of any running back i've ever seen and then stephen came out out later in the day with rich eisen and said he won't call us back here stephen jones. How often are you talking with. Zeke's team these these very rarely. There's this perception out there about negotiations that you know there's these ongoing talks and go on hours at a time and you know that's just not the case a._c. Kinda set the boundaries of where you think it should be and certainly <hes> you know they're all represented by very sharp people and they're trying to do the best for their client line and you kind of sit there and you do on it and you think about it. You know you're always trying to take something that might bridge a gap. Okay so remember this. This is the latest thing it's a tag team partner jerry. You can win super bowls without great running backs steven. You're just taking money out of dagenham. Ariz hands jerry sorry yesterday. Alfred morris has the best feel of any running back i've ever seen and then stephen jones comes out later and says nobody's returning our calls. We're not close. Okay okay so this is tag team zeke. Are they getting nervous. Are they getting anxious. Now i've felt from the very beginning jerry. Stephen have been very shrewd with their public public comments but there is a reason they are going out in public. They are trying to put pressure on zeke. I think zeke has two things going for him here and they're the things that people think well. He's a great player. They need no. He's got two things going for him number. One jerry jones is seventy six years old..
