Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys have officially agreed upon a $90 million, six-year contract extension. This makes him the highest-paid running back in the NFL.

According to The Associated Press, Elliott will get $50 million guaranteed. The $15 million-per-year average on the extension surpasses the $14.4 million Todd Gurley got from the Los Angeles Rams last summer. Gurley’s guarantee, according to the AP, was $45 million.

This ends a 41-day standoff between Dallas and two-time NFL rushing champion Elliott.
