Jones and the Cowboys continue their contract negotiations with three key newcomers – Duck Prescott, Amari Cooper and Zeke, with the biggest problem among the three appearing to be Elliott, the only player on the roster who is not in camp for retention.
Neither Jerry Jones nor Stephen Jones would comment in detail on Elliott's negotiations. However, Stephen Jones said he remains confident that all three will do well.
"I'm optimistic," said Stephen Jones. "I already said that, you just have to get into the ball. When you get close, they can end quickly. We're going down the road with these three guys. We can wake up tomorrow and have another (press conference). Will that happen? Probably not. But once you decide to go, it goes on. "
