Ezekiel Elliott, RB (FA)
Set to leave Dallas
The Cowboys informed Elliott that he'll be released Wednesday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Elliott's release isn't official yet, but the running back is already expected to begin exploring his options elsewhere. The two-time NFL rushing leader will likely be designated as a post-June 1 cut, with his release leaving Tony Pollard (ankle) as the unquestioned No. 1 option in the Dallas backfield. Across his seven-year career with Dallas, Elliott earned three Pro Bowl nods, but he fell short of 1,000 scrimmage yards for the first time in his career during the 2022 season.
