NFL rumors: Ezekiel Elliott down to 2 groups, Cowboys not concerned?
Former Cowboys operating again Ezekiel Elliott nonetheless hasn’t discovered a crew but. Right here’s the place one barely sketchy supply thinks he’ll find yourself this offseason.
The Dallas Cowboys parting methods with Ezekiel Elliott was probably the most apparent outcomes this offseason. Folks would have positioned large bets to see Zeke get launched, no matter what infamous madman Jerry Jones was saying on the time.
In March, Zeke received lower. Slightly over two months later, he hasn’t but discovered a crew prepared to take an opportunity on him. Zeke’s former coach driving down his value didn’t assist. His damage historical past and career-low numbers from final season didn’t assist, both.
As a top-ranked free agent at a non-premium place, Zeke’s barren wasteland of suitors could have simply grown two inexperienced sprouts.
Provided that you imagine this “supply,” nevertheless.
In response to Sportskeeda (first crimson flag), a league insider stated the more than likely touchdown spots for Elliott are the Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Chargers.
The Chargers make a ton of sense. However what are the Browns doing there?
Ezekiel Elliott’s prime rumored landings spots are Chargers and Browns
The nameless supply doesn’t clarify. She or he solely provides a short snippet on the potential explosive pairing of Elliott and the Chargers:
“Elliott, paired with Chargers beginning operating again Austin Ekeler, would give the Chargers arguably probably the most deadly operating again tandems in all of soccer – one that might function elusiveness, energy and velocity.”
Former Dallas offensive coordinator Kellen Moore transferring to LA to run the Justin Herbert Present in 2023 makes a Zeke-Chargers partnership fairly believable.
Ekeler and Herbert’s heroics apart, an incisive end-zone menace and largely dependable RB2 like Elliott could be a possible playoff-push piece for a franchise with horrendous luck and simply dangerous juju. Zeke could not cleanse the crew of its evil spirits (contemplating his personal home abuse allegations), however it may well’t harm?
Onto the Browns, maybe a greater ethical match for Elliott, who would get to work with Deshaun Watson. From a schematic perspective, the Browns additionally want an RB2 after shedding D’Ernest Johnson and reducing Kareem Hunt, however would Cleveland actually shell out the money for Elliott? The Browns produce other needier positions to deal with, and having 2022 fifth-rounder Jerome Ford as the following man up isn’t the tip of the world.
As for the Cowboys, they aren’t at the moment thought of viable suitors for Elliott, however wouldn’t or not it’s so humorous in the event that they had been?
The funniest doable transaction that would occur this offseason could be the Cowboys bringing in Ezekiel Elliott on a team-friendly deal.

That’s the sort of amusing endgame we’re hoping for. And perhaps it was Jerry Jones’ plan all alongside.
