When will Ezekiel Elliott be able to find a new NFL home? Apparently, it could be soon. 

He was let go by the Dallas Cowboys midway through last month, bringing an end to an era that saw him etch his name into the team record books and become one of the most popular players in recent memory. But after he struggled and posted career low numbers last season, the choice was made to move on from him rather than try and get him to agree to a lower contract.

Earlier today, Bleacher Report released their view that the Los Angeles Chargers could be a good fit for Elliott given the fact that their new offensive coordinator happens to be Kellen Moore, who served in that role with the Cowboys before also being let go by the franchise.

"This offseason, the Cowboys fired Moore months before they cut Elliott," they write. "As a play-caller, the former helped the latter put together a Pro Bowl campaign in 2019. During Moore's four-year tenure as the Dallas offensive coordinator, Elliott improved his ball security (one fumble in 2021 and 2022 after 12 from 2016 to 2018 and nine in 2019 and 2020) and logged at least 10 rushing touchdowns in three seasons."

Bleacher Report then mentioned that Elliott could mesh well with Chargers running back Austin Ekeler at the same time. 

Could Elliott soon be on the move out west?
