Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott set ‘great example’ by showing up without extension

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott may be going into 2019 without a new deal, but that has not stopped him from showing up at Cowboys workouts, and his decision to do so impressed Fox Sports analyst Skip Bayless:

“What a great example he showed yesterday showing up for pretty routine OTA workouts, drills,” said Bayless on Undisputed. “Just setting an example for the rest of the team. ‘I’m here because I believe,’ he believes that this could be a special year for this football team. I believe that this team has a chance to win it all this year. I do agree with you that because Jerry (Jones) believed in him and stood by him that he’s going to give Jerry the benefit of the doubt here.”

Bayless then mentioned how he thinks Elliott developed deep respect for Jerry Jones and the Cowboys front office last season, when Jones stuck with him and stood behind him during the controversy surrounding the halfback’s six-game suspension,
