Zeke Not Laughing At Jones’ Quip
(Undated) — Ezekiel Elliott is not a fan of Jerry Jones’ humor. After the Cowboys’ victory over the Rams on Saturday in Hawaii, team owner Jerry Jones was asked about the Pro Bowl running back who has yet to report while in a contract dispute. Jones replied, “Zeke who?” Elliott’s agent Rocky Arceneaux told ESPN on Monday, “I didn’t think it was funny and neither did Zeke. We actually thought it was disrespectful.” In Elliott’s absence, running back Tony Pollard rushed for 51 yards on the Cowboys’ first drive against the Rams, which ended with his 14-yard touchdown run. He’s due to make 3.85-million dollars in base salary in 2019 and is not eligible for free agency until 2021.
