Despite the mouth of Jerry Jones refusing to stop, it looks like the team will be signing their disgruntled running back soon.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter dropped this news on Saturday that extension talks between the Cowboys and Zeke are intensifying and the two parties are aiming to wrap up a new deal this weekend.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had previously stated that he expected Zeke to miss multiple regular-season games, so things have clearly changed within the last few days.
The 24-year-old signed four-year contract worth $24,956,342, which included a signing bonus of $16,350,068 when he was drafted No. 4 overall in 2016.
Elliott rushed for 1,434 yards on 304 carries and hauled in 77 receptions for 567 yards receiving and nine touchdowns last season.
