The drawn-out contract dispute between the Dallas Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott came to an end on Wednesday morning. Following Elliott’s extension, Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams congratulated Elliott on passing him as the NFL’s highest-paid running back on Twitter.

Prior the 2018 season, the Rams handed Gurley a four-year extension worth up to $60 million with $45 million in guarantees. At the time, the Rams’ running back became the league’s richest player at his position.

Then, on Wednesday, that all changed when Elliott was able to negotiate a six-year extension worth up to $90 million and it includes $50 million in guarantees. The Cowboys All-Pro rusher was holding out for a deal that made him the highest paid at his position; he got exactly what he wanted.

The Cowboys selected Elliott with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Ohio State. When Dallas took Elliott, they envisioned him becoming the focal point of their offense for years to come.

Since 2015, Elliott has averaged 334 touches per season with 1,749 yards from scrimmage and 11 touchdowns per season. Behind Dallas’ dominant offensive line, the Ohio State product has led the way for the offense to two rushing titles in 2016 and 2018.

Additionally, Elliott could’ve led the league in rushing in 2017 if it weren’t for him having a six-game suspension in the middle of the season. Despite missing six games, he still was able to gain 983 yards on the ground in 2017 (10th most in the NFL).

Similarly to Emmitt Smith in 1993, the Cowboys are handing their leading rusher an extension that makes him the highest-paid running back in the NFL—in hopes of reaching the Super Bowl this year. With that being said, Dallas is hoping for the same results of the 1993 season; that saw them hoisting the Lombardi trophy.
