Earlier Tuesday morning, a report suggested the Dallas Cowboys extended a new offer to star running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Dallas' 105.3 The Fan reported that the Cowboys' new contract offer to Elliott that is in the Todd Gurley range.

Unfortunately for Cowboys fans who thought that might lead to a deal, a different Dallas insider suggests there is no new deal.

According to Cowboys insider Clarence Hill Jr., Elliott and the Cowboys both presented their respective offers before Elliott's holdout began.

Neither side has offered a counter, according to Hill.

"Zeke made an offer to the Cowboys before holding out that they deemed as too high. They presented their offer. This is where we are and where we have been," he reported on Tuesday night.

Elliott has been holding out for a month-plus, seeking a new deal with two years left on his rookie contract.

Earlier this week, an interview from earlier in the summer revealed the star running back wants to remain with the Cowboys. However, he knows the NFL is a business.

“I love playing for the Dallas Cowboys, I love the organization, my teammates. I do want to be a Cowboy for the rest of my life and hopefully that’s a possibility. But even Emmitt Smith, the greatest running back ever, ended up going to play a couple of years for another organization. So it’s just the nature of the game, but I want to be a Dallas Cowboy for as long as I can," Elliott told Maxim.

Will the two reach a deal? Stay tuned.
