Dallas (CBS DFW)- Training camp for the Dallas Cowboys kicks off on July 26th in Oxnard, CA and according to a new report, the team could be without one of its key pieces when practices get underway. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported that running back Ezekiel Elliott has “privately said” that he’s planning on holding out of camp if he doesn’t get a new deal. Yahoo’s Charles Robinson also weighed in with a report, that says while Elliott hasn’t definitely decided that he will skip camp, he “definitely wants an extension in the works.” According to Robinson, if progress isn’t made towards a deal, the situation “could go sideways fast.” The 23-year-old Elliott is entering his fourth season in the league and, because he is a former first round pick, the Cowboys have a team option available to them for next year as well. With the team focusing on locking down starters that could more immediately become free agents (i.e. DeMarcus Lawrence and Dak Prescott), talk of a new deal for Elliott hasn’t been flourishing. The biggest problem for Elliott is the position that he plays. Running backs in the NFL today are seen as more easily replaceable than other positions. Le’Veon Bell, the top running back in free agency this year, signed a 4-year $52 million deal with the New York Jets. The largest running back contract currently belongs to Todd Gurley who signed a 4-year $57 million agreement with the Los Angeles Rams. Elliott is currently slated for a base salary of $3.8 million this season, with next year’s team option worth a little over $9 million. He has led the league in rushing yards and carries in two of his three NFL seasons, which makes the desire for a new contract understandable. But, with the Cowboys having several other key players set to hit free agency after this season, it will be interesting to see how they manage their cap.

Harry Maguire is in the Leicester squad for a friendly against Scunthorpe (Picture: Getty Images) Harry Maguire will reportedly play for Leicester against Scunthorpe in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday nights as talks with Manchester United rumble on. The Mirror reported that Maguire would play no part in the game as he was due an extended break from Leicester despite already returning to pre-season training, but Sky Sports now state that he is included in the squad to face the League Two club. The 26-year-old had been struggling with illness at the start of this week, but he is reportedly back to full health. Leicester have agreed to sell the centre-back to Manchester United, but only if the Red Devils meet their £80m valuation, something they are yet to do. Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to keep hold of the England international if he can, and is clearly willing to involve him in his first team plans until any deal is confirmed. [metro-zone-post-strip] Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers said of the game at Glanford Park: ‘We’re going to play two 45 minutes so lots of players will get the opportunity to play and get their first taste of football this season and I’m looking forward to it. ‘This phase now is just about the preparation so it’s about building that football fitness. Like I said, they’re not in the position where they can go for that 90 minutes yet.’ Therefore, Maguire will certainly not be playing a full game in Scunthorpe, but can be expected to appear at some stage. Reports had suggested that the defender was ‘angry’ with the Foxes for turning down offers from United and Premier League champions Manchester City for his services. It was reported that Man Utd and Leicester have agreed an £80m deal for Maguire, but neither club have confirmed that as yet.

Josh Kroenke met up with Unai Emery on Arsenal’s tour of the United States (Picture: Getty) Arsenal director and son of the club’s owner Stan Kroenke, Josh has admitted that the club are not in a position to challenge for ‘top trophies’ following recent criticism from supporters. On Monday, various Arsenal supporter groups and influential bloggers penned a statement outlining their frustrations and concerns about the current regime following what has been a difficult start to the summer. Unai Emery has been given a prohibitive transfer budget of £45m to improve his squad and aside from 18-year-old striker Gabriel Martinelli, Arsenal are yet to make a significant signing. Besides Liverpool, who won the Champions League and achieved 97 points in the Premier League, all of Arsenal’s top-six rivals have improved their squads with new players. In their statement, Arsenal fans said that they felt ‘marginalised’, stated that the club is at a ‘crossroads’ and questioned what plan was in place to help Arsenal compete for major trophies. Unai Emery has only signed Gabriel Martinelli for Arsenal so far this summer (Picture: Getty) Speaking to Arsenal’s website, Josh Kroenke said: ‘It’s a daily approach. There are no shortcuts. As much as we would love to say that we’ll be competing for the top trophies tomorrow, we know that that’s not the case and that we have to get to work on that. ‘That’s a daily approach to the little things from the top down. We understand that there’s a daily approach and a daily requirement of detail that goes into the overall approach of building the club back to where it needs to be. ‘You can’t miss any of those details and you can’t skip any days of work.’ Although Arsenal have been linked with a host of players including Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney and Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, time is running out to get deals done. Kroenke oversaw an Arsenal training session alongside Edu and Raul Sanllehi in Los Angeles (Picture: Getty) The English transfer window will close in just over three weeks time on Thursday 8 August meaning Emery and Arsenal’s new Technical Director Edu will have to secure targets quickly. Despite that, Kroenke hinted that there will be incomings at Arsenal, saying that fans should be ‘excited’ at what is to come. [metro-zone-post-strip] When asked what he would say to fans concerned about Arsenal’s transfer activity, he said: ‘I would say ‘be excited’. There are a few things that I know our group are working on, and a few things we hopefully have on the doorstep. ‘Nothing is ever a done deal until it’s a done deal, obviously, but we know we have key areas we want to address in our squad, both now and in the future. ‘Our entire football operations staff have a great grasp on that and I’ve encouraged them to be as aggressive as possible.’ [metro-tag-post-strip]

JOSH KROENKE left Arsenal fans in fits of rage after releasing an open letter defending his family. The son of billionaire owner Stan also took the time to have a chat with SunSport in Denver during the club’s pre-season tour. Josh Kroenke (white T-shirt) has angered Arsenal fans with a string of controversial comments While some supporters were happy just to hear something from the Kroenke family, many of his comments irked fans – and these are the five quips that did the damage… STAY IN YOUR LANE [quote credit=”Josh Kroenke”]I understand that the fans just want us to spend money, but frankly that’s not their job. Their job is to come and cheer us on the pitch.[/quote] COULD Kronke have possibly been any more patronising? Football fans pay good money towards their club, watching games live, buying replica shirts and so on. While they don’t expect to have a say in running the club, they certainly won’t like being told to essentially “shut and up watch”. Arsenal fans in particular have watched their club go from “Invincibles” to nothing more than mediocre in just 15 years. To make matters worse, it’s not like the Gunners hierarchy have followed the lead of Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and even Tottenham in spending money in order to get to the top. Telling them to stay in their lane isn’t brave, it’s just plain daft. They have every right to be angry. OUTSOURCING [quote credit=”Josh Kroenke”]I’m over there as much as I can be, and so is my father. And when we’re not able to be there, we instil the work to be done by good people.[/quote] FOR all of his talk of being committed, Kroenke has essentially just admitted to being spread too thinly. The Kroenkes had a host of other sporting interests – many of which are in the US. But if they aren’t in London in person, can you blame Arsenal fans for being frustrated. Telling them now they have “good people” on the case is hardly a silver lining… BEER BUDGET, CHAMPAGNE TASTE [quote credit=”Josh Kroenke”]It’s no secret that we have a Champions League wage bill on a Europa League budget right now. [/quote] WELL whose fault is that? You spend £350,000-a-week on Mesut Ozil and then use it as an excuse against the fans? Sometimes you have to double-down – and in this instance, Arsenal would be advised to spend a little more in the transfer market. That way they could get back to Champions League football and all the money that comes with. But for now Arsenal are too busy low-balling Celtic with an embarrassing offer of £25m in instalments for Kieran Tierney. DON’T EXPECT MIRACLES [quote credit=”Josh Kroenke”]While we’re not going to be in the market for some of the top players in the world at the moment, we’re actively scouting the globe to find the next big thing to become great. [/quote] AND then came the confirmation that the club would not be getting the crowbar out to prize open the old wallet. Arsenal simply must spend if they plan to keep up with City and Liverpool, particularly. Instead, the Gunners are now only expected to bring in youngsters with potential rather than first-team-ready stars.
