Arceneaux added that Elliott is excited to be back in Dallas and he "absolutely" wants to be a Cowboy long-term.
DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) - The long-awaited standoff is finally over as the Dallas Cowboys and star running back Ezekiel Elliott have agreed in principle to a deal, according to 105.3 The Fan's Ben Rogers.
Terms of the deal are unknown.
The timing of the deal is important as it allows Elliott to be at the Star for a Wednesday practice and even a press conference, Rogers said on the air Tuesday.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Elliott was returning to Dallas from Cabo San Lucas and Yahoo's Charles Robinson added that Elliott's representation was also on the flight.
"We'll see how today goes," Jones said. "We'll see how tomorrow goes. We'll see how the ensuing hours pan out."
Jones said that he was "hopeful" to have the star running back available to play in Sunday's season opener against the visiting New York Giants. There are others here in the building who aren't as certain -- even as the consensus is that during Elliott's holdout in Cabo, he worked to stay in shape.
Jones said the Cowboys are preparing to win against the Giants "with the people that we have out here now.'' But Ezekiel Elliott will now be one of those "people.''
