Ezekiel Elliot, one of the leagues premier Running Backs, wants a new contract. But should the Cowboys give him one?
The league has become very pass oriented, and Running Backs have become less important to a team's success. But, I think the Zeke case is different.
Dak Prescott, while definitely improving, relies heavily on play-action passing. The team signed Alfred Morris, but his best days are behind him. With an elite young defence, and a star wide receiver in their possession, it’s time for the Cowboys to put all their chips on the table.
Now is the time for them to prove that they’re actually a team worth paying attention to, and not just a product of the NFL’s hype machine.
