It looks like a deal might be on the horizon for Ezekiel Elliott.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport stated on Tuesday that the disgruntled running back is going to fly back from Cabo to Dallas just so he could be in town if his new deal gets done.
Rapoport also stated that the deal is not done as the two sides are still working through obstacles.
#Cowboys RB Zeke Elliott, who has been in Cabo since training camp began, is flying back to the Dallas area in case his extension gets done, sources say. The deal is not done. Some obstacles remain. But he will be in town if it gets finalized.

The two sides reached a snag over the weekend after the Cowboys became “frustrated” as they expected more compromise from Elliott’s side to get a deal done.
Elliott is still seeking to exceed Todd Gurley‘s four-year, $57.5 million deal that he received from the Los Angeles Rams.
For now, the 24-year-old is set to make a base salary of $3.85 million for the 2019 season.
