Ezekiel Elliott Isn\'t Feeling Pressure Over Contract 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jul 28, 2022 1:36 pm

Ezekiel Elliott doesn\'t feel any pressure over his future with the Dallas Cowboys.

The running back\'s contract doesn\'t have any guaranteed money on it past this season.

\"I think it is a big season, but I think you can\'t look too far down the road,\" Elliott said. \"I think if I focus on every day, if I focus on having a good day of camp, if I focus on taking it week by week, I think everything will handle itself. And I don\'t think there\'s really a reason to look that far down the road. I think if I handle my business every day, then I\'ll be in a pretty good situation at the end of the season.\"

Elliott\'s $12.4 million base salary is fully guaranteed as part of the $90 million extension he signed in 2019.

The Cowboys have an easier path financially to move on from him in 2023 because there is no more guaranteed money in his contract. He is set to make $10.9 million in 2023.
