Ezekiel Elliott Rejoins Dallas Cowboys on a One-Year Deal


The Dallas Cowboys have reunited with running back Ezekiel Elliott who rejoins, bringing him back on a one-year deal worth up to $3 million. Elliott, who spent the 2023 season with the New England Patriots after being released by the Cowboys due to salary cap constraints, is set to rejoin the team that drafted him fourth overall in 2016.

Elliott’s return comes after the Cowboys lost their leading rusher, Tony Pollard, to free agency. The team opted not to select a running back in the recent NFL Draft and will now employ a committee approach in the backfield. Elliott is expected to share carries with Rico Dowdle, Royce Freeman, and potentially younger options like Deuce Vaughn and Malik Davis.

The 3-time Pro Bowler is no longer the dominant force he once was, but his veteran presence adds depth to the Cowboys’ running back corps. During his first stint with Dallas, Elliott rushed for over 8,200 yards and established himself as the team’s third all-time leading rusher. He won the NFL rushing title twice and had 30 career 100-yard games as a Cowboy. While he is unlikely to return to his peak performance, Elliott’s experience and ability to contribute in the passing game will be valuable assets for Dallas.
