NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Washington Football Team

In 2019, the Dallas Cowboys signed running back Ezekiel Elliott to a six-year, $90 million contract extension which makes him one of the highest paid running backs in the National Football League. Since then, Elliott’s numbers have been on a steady decline compared to years prior when he was averaging over 1,100 rushing yards and 4.5 yards per carry in three of his first four years.

Questions are being raised regarding the future of the former 2016 Offensive Rookie of the Year, but Elliott is more focused on the present moment.

“I think it’s a big season, but you can’t look too far down the road. I think if I focus on every day, if I focus on having a good day of camp, if I focus on taking it week by week, I think everything will handle itself. And I don’t think there’s really a reason to look that far down the road. I think if I handle my business every day then I’ll be in a pretty good situation at the end of the season.”
