After arguably the worst season of his career, Ezekiel Elliott has sat in free agency for around two months after being released by the Dallas Cowboys. Last season, the Cowboys did not have much of a need for Elliott after the emergence of Tony Pollard.
While Pollard was the back that Dallas would end up bringing back to the team in the off-season, Elliott would only come off of the bench in one game in the 2022 season. Despite this Elliott would serve as more of a ground and pound back, running the ball up the gut and in short-yardage situations.
As a result of this, he would have the least amount of yards and yards per game of his entire career. However, his 12 touchdowns last year were the most that he has had since his 2019 Pro Bowl season.
While his role may need to be adjusted, Elliott is still a very talented back. The Cowboys can not be blamed for releasing him as the move would save them millions, however, there should have been a contending team that has taken a chance on Zeke by now.
Up to this point, there has not been much noise coming about Elliott coming close to signing with a team since the off-season began. Currently, many are speculating that he may even end up coming back to Dallas on a major pay cut.
Regardless of where he ends up signing, it is very hard to believe that no one has gotten Elliott yet. He has fallen victim to running back being the most expendable position in all of football right now. With the league becoming more and more passing oriented every season paired with the talent pool being as vast as it is at the position, it makes it very difficult for big-name backs like Zeke to get paid.
