Ezekiel Elliott texted Tony Pollard and the other Cowboys running backs to wish them “good luck.”
Even though Ezekiel Elliott is not currently playing for the Dallas Cowboys, he is still pulling for the team to have a successful season in 2023.
Elliott, who was let go by America’s club in March and is currently a free agent, recently sent a text message to Cowboys running back Tony Pollard in which he wished Pollard and the club the best of luck for the upcoming season.
On Wednesday, Pollard was quoted as saying, “Just telling all the running backs he knows we’ll handle business, take care of everything, and just good luck,” according to Todd Archer of ESPN. “Despite the fact that he isn’t physically present, the fact that he is still concerned about our well-being and making sure we are okay means a great deal,” she said.
Elliott was taken by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and the Cowboys utilized his services throughout his whole seven-year career before releasing him.
The 28-year-old was very productive throughout the early stages of his career, but his performance has steadily declined over the course of the past three years. Coupled with the fact that Pollard has emerged as a viable option for the Cowboys in the backfield, the team made the choice to let Elliott go in order to clear some salary budget space.
Even though Elliott is still available to be signed by a club, there hasn’t been much talk about the veteran, and it’s not apparent which teams might be interested in doing so prior to the 2023 season.
The Cowboys have not closed the door on Elliott’s possible return, but now that training camp has started, it is unclear what the team’s current stance is on the matter of bringing him back.
