Agent -- RB unhappy with Jones' 'Zeke who?' quip

Ezekiel Elliott was not amused by Saturday's "Zeke who?" quip from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and thought it was "disrespectful," according to Elliott's agent.

"I didn't think it was funny and neither did Zeke -- we actually thought it was disrespectful," agent Rocky Arceneaux told ESPN on Monday afternoon.

Arceneaux said Elliott continues his contract holdout while training in Cabo San Lucas "at a great facility."

Jones answered a question about Elliott after the Cowboys' preseason game Saturday in Hawaii with "Zeke who?"

The Cowboys owner then clarified he wanted Elliott to know he was just "cracking a joke at Zeke's expense."

Arcineaux did not reveal any details related to contract negotiations.

Elliott has yet to report to training camp and is subject to fines totaling more than $900,000 as he seeks a contract extension.
