Cowboys, RB Ezekiel Elliott agrees to terms for reunion

Elliott, 28, was released in the 2023 offseason by Dallas and made his way to New England, where he signed with the Patriots in August and had moderate success in the struggling offense. He led the Pats with 642 yards as Rehammond Stevenson was slowed by injuries. However, Elliott averaged just 3.5 yards per carry, providing greater statistical credibility that his best Sundays were behind him.

However, Elliott's return to Dallas should offer some positives beyond just nostalgia. The former two-time rushing champion, who was taken fourth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Cowboys, still has a nose for the end zone and is usually a sterling pass protector.

He'll join a backfield that's still flashing a vacancy for a true RB1, as Elliott will be part of a depth chart that includes Rico Dowdle, Deuce Vaughn, and Royce Freeman.

Having declared that his club will go all out this year on more than one occasion, Jerry Jones is unlikely to satisfy a fanbase looking for big additions to the roster.

But Elliott is bound to cause some excitement and anticipation with his return. Not to mention, since this boy is back in town, this might be his last trip, and it would be fitting that it comes with a star on his helmet.
