Earlier Saturday afternoon, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter finally told Dallas Cowboys fans something they want to hear.

After weeks of back-and-forth with no positive news, Cowboys fans can breath easy.

According to Schefter, Dallas and their star running back are close to a deal. Schefter revealed the deal could come as early as the end of the weekend.

Fellow NFL insider Todd Archer gave the latest on the situation.

"If the Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott are able to reach an agreement on a contract in the next few days, the Cowboys will likely receive a roster-exemption for up to a week," Archer reported.

"If the Cowboys had Elliott active for the opener against the New York Giants, then they would have to create a spot on the active roster for the running back."

For the past few weeks, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made a series of comments leading Dallas fans to wonder if the deal was going to get done.

However, according to Schefter, it looks like the two sides are closer to a deal than we thought.

It's a great sign for Dallas - which looks to build on a run to the playoffs in 2018.

Stay tuned for the latest on Elliott's contract.
