Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has agreed to a six-year, $90 million extension that includes roughly half the money being guaranteed, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Elliott, 24, had been holding out all offseason, with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones growing skeptical last week that a deal would be reached quickly.
"I'm operating as though right now he's going to miss regular-season games," Jones said on Thursday, according to the Cowboys' official website. "My entire expectation for what we're putting together as a team right now would anticipate with him holding out and not having any training camp that he's going to miss games. I just accept that."
With Jones now on board, it seems like a near-lock that he will suit up against the Giants for their Week 1 matchup on Sunday afternoon in Dallas.
The massive extension for Elliott could also have an impact on the future of star Giants RB Saquon Barkley, who is under team control for the next four seasons.
Elliott not only got the deal he wanted, but did so while holding out when the Cowboys still had two years of additional contractual control of him.
Elliott was an absolute beast in 2018, rushing 304 times for 1,434 yards and reeling in 77 passes for another 567 yards.
