Report: Cowboys RB Elliott seeking extension
Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott wants a contract extension from the club this offseason, his third in the league, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Saturday.
Elliott, 23, who has won rushing titles in two of his first three seasons, is eligible for an extension at this stage of his rookie contract and is eyeing the extension signed this year by Los Angeles Rams back Todd Gurley, who renegotiated his contract after his third season, Rapoport reported.
Gurley inked a four-year extension with $45 million guaranteed.
The team could opt to do nothing, given that Elliott has one more year remaining on his rookie deal, and the club will most assuredly pick up its fifth-year option on him.
Elliott would join a long line of Cowboys seeking contract extensions this offseason, including quarterback Dak Prescott, newly acquired wide receiver Amari Cooper and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence.
Elliott rushed for a league-leading 1,434 yards this season and amassed more than 2,000 total yards overall, leading the Cowboys to the NFC East title.
The Cowboys selected Elliott No. 4 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
