Well Ezeikiel Elliot isn’t happy with his contract. And it looks like if he doesn’t get a new one he is not going to be attending training camp.

Source: Per a league source, Elliott has privately said that he will hold out of training camp unless he gets a new contract.
The Cowboys haven’t focused on giving Elliott a new contract, largely because they don’t have to. They have instead focused on players with more immediate paths to free agency, from defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (who has signed) to quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver Amari Cooper (who haven’t).
Prescott and Cooper are due to become free agents next year. Elliott, the fourth overall draft pick in 2016, has two years remaining on his rookie deal, given that first-round selections are subject to a fifth-year option.
Well, quick thoughts on this from me. Trade him. The dude is trouble. Instead of counting his blessings that he didn’t get suspended.. Literally the guy doesn’t get it. Immature. Mean. Seems like he is always out of shape until training camp. I just am not a fan of Zeke. And as we’ve seen in the league, you really don’t need a superstar running back to win a Super Bowl. So, forget it. Get rid of Zeke if he isn’t going to grow up.
