Ezekiel Elliott isn’t doing anything new.

He’s an NFL RB who is holding out because he thinks he deserves a new contract. He isn’t even the first (or second) former Big Ten back to do this at the next level.

Le’Veon Bell did it with the Pittsburgh Steelers a year ago and Melvin Gordon made his voice heard earlier this offseason. Now, it’s Elliott’s turn.

However, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said recently that he believes a contract will get done. If a contract doesn’t get done, though, what will happen?

Apparently Elliott is willing to sit out the entire 2019 season:

As the gif shows, the situation is escalating. What’s odd and somewhat different about Elliott’s holdout is that he’s not just on the final year of his contract. He has two years left.

If he were to sit out 2019, he would enter 2020 on the last year of his current rookie contract. If nothing got done by then, would he hold out in 2020 as well? And, even if that were to happen, the Cowboys could continue to franchise tag Elliott.

We’re very curious to see when and how this situation ends for the former Buckeye star.
