Ezekiel Elliott’s Agent Deems Jerry Jones’ Comments ‘Disrespectful’

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones cracked a few jokes when interviewed after Saturday’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams. Ezekiel Elliott and his agent did not find it humorous.

With Elliott continuing a holdout in Cabo, rookie Tony Pollard started at running back in Week 2 of the preseason. On eight carries, Pollard rushed for 42 yards and a touchdown. As a result of the impressive  outing, heads were turning on the Cowboys sideline including Jerry Jones.

While in an interview after the game, Jones addressed Elliott’s negotiation process. The owner sarcastically stated, “Zeke who?” when asked about Pollard’s performance.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted Elliott’s agents thoughts on Jones’ comments.


Later in the interview, Jones stated that Pollard would “not replace” what Elliott brings to the Cowboys, only complement. Still, the joke that Jones made is what caught Elliott’s attention.

Last year, Elliott led the league in rushing yards with 1,434 on 304 carries. In addition, the All-Pro tacked on six rushing touchdowns as well as three receiving touchdowns. Elliott proved to be the backbone of the Dallas offense in previous years and is now expecting to be paid handsomely.

With the NFL season opener fast approaching, Elliott continues his hold out. Due to this, the Week 1 starter at running back for the Cowboys is still in question.
