“Well, I mean we’ve got it budgeted that we’re going to pay Zeke a significant contract at some point,” he said. "He’s right there at the top with the best of the business, if not the best. We saw what Gurley got paid, and that’s probably where it starts, and we’ll go from there.”
In an interview with 105.3 The Fan after the season ended, Jerry Jones was asked whether Elliott would be a Cowboy for the “foreseeable future?"
"Do we want Zeke in the foreseeable future on the Dallas Cowboys? The answer is yes," Jones told Shan and RJ. "That’d be madness to think any differently."
Jones then went on to add more about Elliott, saying, "that's like asking if you want (Zack) Martin, or (Tyron) Smith. "Now, getting there ... Hell, I want a bigger boat," Jones joked about his new 357-foot yacht.
"The question is. Do you have the resources or do you have a plan to get there? That's the real question ... tell us how you're going to do it," Jones said. "Sometimes you don't know how to do it until you sit there and reach that hand out and shake it."
According to 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher, Dallas has approximately $51 million in cap room this spring.
