Cowboys considering a contract extension for Tony Pollard?
Entering a contract year, it seemed to be a foregone conclusion 2022 would be Tony Pollard’s last with the Dallas Cowboys. With Ezekiel Elliott still handling the lion’s share of the work load and being locked up through the 2026 season, Pollard’s future in Dallas looked to be all but nonexistent after this year. That thinking could have been a bit premature.
Stephen Jones, the Cowboys executive vice president, recently said on 96.7 The Ticket that they have not yet had contract extension talks with Pollard, who is in the final year of his rookie deal.
“There are some things as we move forward that we just have to take a look at,” Jones said, “in terms of that running back position and the cap and how that works, in terms of Zeke and Tony and how we work those two together. So, we’ll continue to see how that’s evolving as the year goes. But the goal is to have Tony Pollard back here next year.”
