Cowboys Officially Add RB Ezekiel Elliott To Active Roster


The Dallas Cowboys officially activated RB Ezekiel Elliott from the exempt list on Friday, according to Field Yates.

The expectation is that Elliott will see a large role in this weekend’s game.

Elliott severed all six games of his suspension from the NFL, despite contesting the matter in court for a good portion of the regular season.

Elliott, 22, was taken with the No. 4 overall pick by the Cowboys back in May. He signed four-year contract worth $24,956,342, which includes a signing bonus of $16,350,068.

Elliott stands to make base salaries of $1.58 million (2017), $2.71 million (2018), and $3.85 million (2019) over the remainder of the contract. The agreement also includes a fifth-year option for the team to pick up in 2019.

In 2017, Elliott has appeared in eight games and rushed for 783 yards on 191 carries (4.1 YPC) to go along with 19 receptions for 210 yards receiving and nine total touchdowns.
