Ezekiel Elliott keeps striking out.
It was reported last week that former Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott narrowed his list of future teams to three organizations. He was weighing options between the Jets, Bengals, and Eagles.
When asked a few days ago about the potential of adding the former Dallas Cowboys star, Jets head coach Robert Saleh did not seem interested in the idea.
“We love our running back room,” Saleh said in a video shared by Jets Videos on Twitter. “I’ll leave it at that.”
Head coach Nick Sirianni does not seem eager to pursue the possibility of signing Zeke either. Sirianni downplayed the possibility of the Eagles signing Elliott, saying the team was happy with its running back room.
Elliott may be having a hard time finding a market right now, at least among the teams he would be most interested in.
He very well may find himself back in Dallas as both Jerry Jones and Mike McCarthy left the door open for his return. Elliott saw his role diminish this past season with the emergence of fourth-year running back Tony Pollard, who averaged 5.2 yards per carry while rushing for 1,007 yards and nine touchdowns.
The Cowboys franchise-tagged Pollard, guaranteeing him a $10.1 million salary for the 2023 season and making Elliott and his inflated salary all the more expendable.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
