In case you haven't heard, the Dallas Cowboys made the decision earlier this week to cut ties with former 1st round draft pick Ezekiel Elliott.
“We have mutually agreed with Zeke that the best decision for everyone is that he will be able to experience free agency, and we can increase our flexibility and options,” team owner Jerry Jones said in a statement. “Zeke’s impact and influence is seared into the Cowboys franchise in a very special and indelible way.”
And while you'd think that Elliott would have no trouble finding a new team, there's the uncomfortable fact that he's been dealing with several injuries combined with his having posted career low numbers last season.
And according to an unnamed NFL executive, Elliott's options for 2023 may "humble" him.
“Think teams are mostly paying for the name,” the executive said. “I think the open market will be humbling for him.”
However, the good news is that he may not be completely finished.
“The RB market is pretty unforgiving, particularly this free agency,” one of the scouts said, “He's still young 'enough' with a history of production to land an opportunity/role somewhere.
“And I don't think anyone can deny his toughness.”
Where exactly do you see Elliott landing next season?
