While everyone is in Eagles training camp, including Malcolm Jenkins, who wants more money, the Birds NFC East rival the dreaded Dallas Cowboys can’t say the same.
Even though Ezekiel Elliott is not at training camp, the Dallas goal is to sign the two-time NFL rushing champion to a long-term deal along with quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper.
The order of who signs does not matter to executive vice president Stephen Jones, who heads up the team’s negotiations. Jones said there are planned negotiations between the representatives for the players, either face-to-face or over the phone, while the team is in California.
“Certainly we’ll be working on it behind the scenes, and we feel optimistic that when we’re all said and done here that things will usually work themselves out,” Jones said during the state-of-the-Cowboys news conference in Oxnard.
