He's not interested in talking about it.

The Dallas Cowboys are going to be looking considerably different next season, given the fact that they decided to part ways with popular former 2016 1st round Draft selection Ezekiel Elliott. 

The unfortunate news for Elliott is that he's been unable to find a new NFL home so far, but there's still plenty of time before teams once again gather for training camp. It would be a stunner if there was a team who wasn't willing to take a waiver on him. 

In the meantime, he still remains a hugely popular figure in the community. He was swarmed by fans making an appearance at the ’'Light It Up’' gala at the Hilton Anatole to help raise money for the Children’s Cancer Fund - though one thing he declined to talk about with media members was his exit from the team. However, he said that he was doing well.

"I'm doing great," he responded. "Doing great." 

The fact that Elliott has been seen working out with quarterback Dak Prescott has given several of them hope that a return to the Cowboys could somehow be in the cards.

“He’s my best friend,’’ Prescott said when asked if he and Elliott were workout partners. “Hell yeah I’m throwing with him.’’

Does Prescott sense any frustration on Elliott's part over remaining unsigned? 

“I can’t tell you that,’’ Prescott said. “Honestly, I’m not going to pick on that. When I see him, I don’t talk about that.

“But hell, I would be.’’
