Jerry Jones seems to be in a spirited mood for a guy who is likely to not have one of the best running backs available for a few games during the upcoming season.
The Dallas Cowboys owner was asked about the negotiations with Elliott, who’s been holding out for a new contract, and the topic of RB Tony Pollard being his “best negotiator” in the Elliott discussions came up.
Jerry Jones responded with, “Zeke who?”
It should be noted that it was in a joking manner.
“I don’t know when I’ve seen a rookie come in and grasp his assignments and how to execute them. It’s one thing to understand it in the classroom, but to go out and execute it on a full-speed level is impressive,” Jones said earlier in the week, speaking about Pollard.
The Cowboys have two preseason games left and there has been no word on any movement in regards to the team offering another contract that Elliott would like to get him back on the team for the upcoming season.
The team begins the regular season on Sunday, Sept. 8 against the New York Giants.
