NFL Analyst Predicts Cowboys Unloading Ezekiel Elliott In Blockbuster Trade
It is no secret that Ezekiel Elliott has been downright terrible since forcing the Dallas Cowboys to sign him to a huge extension.
The Dallas Cowboys running back has had one game rushing over 100 yards all season, with no rushing touchdowns in the last eight games.
Bleacher Report is predicting a blockbuster Elliott trade to go down this offseason, stating he might be on the move to the New York Jets:
“If the Cowboys want to unload Elliott and get some cap wiggle room, a team like the New York Jets would make plenty of sense. The winless Jets sit with the second-most projected cap space in 2021 at more than $81 million and figure to use the No. 1 pick on a quarterback like Trevor Lawrence.
Those Jets could send a second-rounder to the Cowboys for Elliott, who they can use to absorb workhorse punishment while a rookie learns on the fly. The front office could then use the out in Elliott’s contract after the 2022 season.”
If the Jets continue to lose, they will have Trevor Lawrence leading their team for years to come. Having a veteran running back could help out his growth, but if the team doesn’t fix that offensive line, Zeke will have the same issues in New York that he is currently having in Dallas.
Dallas is 4-9 on the season heading into today’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.
