  • Tony Romo knows how Jerry Jones does business

Following the Cowboys second preseason game in Hawaii - -the Dallas Cowboys owner made a "Zeke who?" joke after Tony Pollard's huge preseason performance. Down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where Elliott is training during his contract holdout, the two-time Pro Bowl player apparently was miffed.

Jones did turn to a camera after his joke and said "we're just having a little fun" before clarifying that Pollard, who had five carries for 42 yards and a touchdown Saturday, would be complementing Elliott rather than replacing him.

On Monday, Elliott's agent Rocky Arceneaux said both he and Elliott found the quip "disrespectful". And when asked if Pollard was his "best negotiator with Zeke", the Dallas Cowboys owner replied, "Zeke who?".

These arrangements would apply unless and until both the European Union and United Kingdom agreed they were no longer necessary. Mr Johnson claimed the Belfast agreement "neither depends upon nor requires a particular customs or regulatory regime".

Arceneaux did not reveal any details related to contract negotiations. If the Cowboys are willing to satisfy Zeke and make him the league's highest-paid running back, they'll need to go beyond the four-year, $57.5 million extension ($14.375M annually) that Todd Gurley received from the Los Angeles Rams. "He knows exactly what to do, and he knows how to do it".

There has not been any "real activity" regarding Elliott's contract dispute, the network reported, as the Cowboys' Week 1 matchup against the Giants inches closer. "Not replace that, and I mean that". Nobody's getting cute here, but it'll certainly be a great complement. "I can picture those guys in the same sets at the same time out there really giving those defenses fits".
