Cowboys Begin Talks To Give Ezekiel Elliott Huge Contract Extension Day After Getting Arrested

The running joke is that Jerry Jones can’t wait to give players who get arrested contract extensions in order to keep up the criminal rap sheet of the Dallas Cowboys, but this time, there is no joke.

Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott was detained Sunday night at the EDM Music Festival in Las Vegas after shoving a security guard to the ground.

Just 24 hours later, the team has begun talks to make Elliott the highest paid running back in NFL history.

The team has a tough decision to make on how to split the money between their three stars on offensive, Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, and Dak Prescott.
