Report: Cowboys not expected to extend Pollard before deadline

The Dallas Cowboys and franchise-tagged running back Tony Pollard aren’t expected to reach an agreement on a multi-year contract before Monday’s deadline, reports ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Dallas placed the tag on Pollard in March after he set career highs with 1,378 scrimmage yards and 12 total touchdowns last season. The 26-year-old, who already signed his tender, will earn $10 million in 2023 by playing on the tag.

Pollard is expected to lead the Cowboys’ backfield this year following the departure of Ezekiel Elliott, whom Dallas released after seven seasons.
