Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys are closing in on a new deal, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk. The extension isn’t done yet, but it’s close and expected to be for six years, $90 million.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday morning an increased urgency to get a deal done with the Week 1 matchup against the New York Giants rapidly approaching. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport also reported that Elliott was flying back to Dallas from Cabo in case a new deal was finalized, with Schefter confirming this detail.

Elliott still has two seasons left on his rookie contract, but he has been holding out in hopes of securing a lucrative new deal after three prolific seasons to start his career. Los Angeles Rams star running back Todd Gurley became the highest-paid running back in terms of annual money when he signed a four-year, $57.5 million deal last year, with $45 million of that guaranteed. An Elliott extension at six years, $90 million would be slightly higher at $15 million per season.

There has been plenty of drama surrounding the Elliott contract talks, with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones very publicly talking about the negotiations. While Jones has taken a hard line at times, there certainly is urgency to get a deal done before the regular season begins.

Elliott is coming off a monster third season in which he rushed for 1,434 yards on 4.7 yards per carry. He reached the end zone six times on the ground. The 24-year-old added 77 receptions for 567 yards and three scores.
