After seven seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, the team has decided to part ways with running back Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott ends his time with the Cowboys as the third-leading rusher in franchise history. He joined the team as the fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft.
While injuries began taking a toll on him towards the tail end of his Dallas stint, he was still a quality back. With the emergence of Tony Pollard paired with Elliott being one of the top-paid running backs in the league, it makes sense why this move was made.
In his 103 games with the team, he finished with 8262 yards and 68 touchdowns on the ground. Along with this, he totaled 2336 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns through the air.
Even though his time in Dallas has come to an end, he still has a lot to contribute to whichever team will take a chance on him. A lot of this will depend on how much of a pay cut Elliott is willing to take compared to his original deal with the Cowboys.
If he is willing to take a substantial cut, he could end up joining the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, or even rejoin the Cowboys on a more team-friendly deal.
