Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones mentioned during an interview with Pro Football Talk on Friday that signing RB Ezekiel Elliott to an extension is a priority, but there’s still no timetable to get an agreement in place.
“I think those [contract extensions] are all a work in progress,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Certainly we’ve got a couple years there with Zeke to get that done. We certainly want to get him done. He’s the straw, if you will, that stirs our drink. He’s a key part of what we’re about.
“Those things take time to get done. They don’t happen over night. Certainly he is a priority in terms of ultimately getting him signed. But there hasn’t really been a timetable put on this.”
