Dallas Cowboys fans are suddenly feeling more optimistic about a return to form next season for star running back Ezekiel Elliot.
A few days ago, the Cowboys running back shared a series of new shirtless photographs and videos to his Instagram revealing his jacked physique.
Somebody decided to have some fun with it and posted a side-by-side photo of his new look and another player rocking his jersey with their huge belly sticking out.
In an interview with The Athletic, Elliott’s trainer Josh Hicks told reporter Jon Machota that Elliott is looking “way quicker, way more elusive, more fluent” than ever.
“I don’t think Zeke has ever worked like this in the offseason. I could be mistaken,” Hicks said. “But me, personally, when it comes to my drills and what I do and how I do it, I know he hasn’t worked like this.”
Earlier this offseason, Dak Prescott told the Dallas Morning News that Elliott also appeared to be in the best shape of his life. “Everybody’s seen the clips of him working out independently with his running back coach. His cuts, just how explosive he is,” Prescott said.
Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing yards in 2016 and 2018, had career lows in yards per carry, yards per reception, and rushing touchdowns in 2020.
