Ezekiel Elliott is still just 26, and he has two NFL rushing titles under his belt. But his performance has been the subject of contentious conversations among fans for the last few seasons.
We have seen him come into every year looking absolutely huge, but those days may have changed.
The Dallas Cowboys running back is looking pretty thin in a new photoshoot and it has fans wondering if it was done intentionally.
“Is it me or does Zeke look skinner then last season?,” a fan asked.
How fans reacted:
Elliott’s contract runs through the 2026 season, but there’s no more guaranteed money on the deal after this year and he will likely need to have at least one of the best years of his career in order for the Cowboys to keep him around at a $10.9 million salary and $16.72 million cap hit next season.
Elliott finished last season with 1,002 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns off 237 carries. It was a step up from his 2020 season when he had 979 yards rushing and six touchdowns.
