Well it wasn't like he was still a force at running back last season............

    "Jerry Jones said he would like to find away to keep both Pollard and Elliott at the NFL Combine last month."

    Elliot has been awful the past 2 seasons, no way they would keep him for that money

    Yep, he's officially been released, I read that the Bucs might be interested in signing him.

    Almost entirely hype at this point; just mostly hype seven years ago.

    But, he did go to the greatest high school in the country.

    This is for you @thisistheshow - Jim Rice was actually a pretty good player.

    When Elliot was younger he was a multi-talented sprinter/track star. At Ohio State he proved to be a powerful runner with great speed as well as an outstanding pass blocker and adequate receiver. He's had some nagging injuries to his legs the past two seasons which has really affected him in a negative way and meant that Pollard was the right choice for Dallas.

    I think that Elliot can still be an effective runner but he'll need to be fully healed. Perhaps his strongest asset when he's healthy is that as a solid runner and good blocker he can stay in the backfield on those 3rd and three plays to keep the defense honest. Somebody will pick him up.

    Why get your body beaten up for 16 Million$ a year when you can just sit on the bench for 5 Million $? It's not the players but the idiots giving them the contracts.

    He will definitely find a team, but as far as him being a lead back and putting up 1500 yards those days are over.

    to my eyes, Zeke looked washed to me last season. apparently JJ thought the same

    George Brett, Bobby Orr and Terry Bradshaw.
