With three of his team’s biggest stars all in need of (or holding out for) new contracts, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is still feeling pretty positive. Talking to reporters Monday, Jones assured everyone that all the deals for quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott will all get done soon enough.

“Just know that like so many things, it’ll happen. It’ll happen,” Jones said. “There literally is no concern on my part at all about any time frame. That’ll happen. The results are too good for them and too good for the Cowboys. Think about it now. The results are too good for them and too good for the Cowboys. That always happens when it’s that good for both of us.”

Prescott who is due the biggest contract and pay upgrade, is currently in camp, as is Cooper. Elliott is, of course, absent, sipping coconut drinks on a beach in Cabo. The quarterback and running back have remained in touch.

“I’ve talked to him (Elliott),” Prescott said. “We’ve communicated… Obviously we miss the player that he is, but I know that he’s getting better. I know that he’s working on his game, he’s in shape. He’s going to make sure that he comes back, and when he’s back on this team he’s a better player than before camp, or before the spring. And then, yeah, he’s a good friend. Obviously you want him out here, but that’s business. …Friendship is friendship and business is business. You don’t cross those.”

Cowboys cut tight end Rico Geathers

Already looking at a one-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, tight end Rico Geathers will now be looking for a job. Monday, Dallas cut the former college basketball player after he was held out of practice with an ankle injury.

Geathers played in 15 games last season with three catches for 45 yards.
