CelebNSports247.com reports that Elliott secured his goal of becoming the richest running back in NFL history while also helping the Cowboys stay flexible in the cap to continue to sign other players.
Ezekiel Elliott deal still leaves plenty of room for quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver Amari Cooper contract extensions so they can get what they want as well.
