After opening the week by proclaiming a team doesn’t need a rushing champion to win the Super Bowl, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is continuing to take a relaxed approach to Ezekiel Elliott’s holdout.
The two-time rushing champ is currently in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico as he waits for an extension on his contract that has two years remaining. Following practice Thursday in Oxford, Calif., Jones said the organization will not budge in its efforts to keep Elliott, quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper “under the same roof,” according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com.
“As far as doing something that would disrupt and shake the base of our plans for how to keep the talent we’ve got here, I’m not about to shake that loose,” Jones said.
When speaking about contract extensions in general, Jones asked the media, “When have I ever not done one?” And in regard to getting the deal done by a certain point, such as the start of the regular season, Jones said, “I don’t see a point. I don’t see a point months into the season.”
