Fans reckon they know exactly what the Dallas Cowboys will decide in regard to running back Ezekiel Elliot given the latest development within the team.
Elliot is keen on remaining in Dallas and is willing to take a pay cut in order to secure a future with the Cowboys. However, fans think he’s going to be cut despite his willingness to restructure his deal and take home less money.
According to Ari Meirov, the Cowboys have placed the franchise tag on Tony Pollard. As a result, they will be 12 percent over the salary cap given that their RBs are set to earn over a combined $27 million, marking the highest total in NFL history, per Warren Sharp.
Fans are now speculating over Elliot’s future as the aforementioned figure is a lot to be spending on the position in today’s NFL.
Matt Lombardo is reporting that the notion around the league is that the Cowboys are going to cut Elliott’s salary by a significant amount, which suggests the team plans on keeping him around for the foreseeable future.
Should they release the player, the move would be considered a good one in terms of business. On the other hand, they would be cutting a player who has been one of the best in his position for several years, though it’s been rumored that the RB doesn’t have much left in his legs and other NFL teams are aware of it.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
