Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys interested in a reunion

The Dallas Cowboys have been relatively quiet throughout much of the offseason, but that could quickly change.

The Cowboys may possibly bring back a familiar face to help push the offense forward. According to ESPN, Dallas and former star running back Ezekiel Elliott hold mutual interest in a reunion.

Elliott spent last season with the New England  Patriots, where he finished with a team-best 642 rushing yards on 184 carries with three touchdowns along with a team-high 51 catches for 313 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

The 28-year-old isn’t the game-changing talent he once was, but he would provide significant stability to the Cowboys offense. He holds significant familiarity with the team, which would make for a smooth transition back into the fold.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys have a strong need to strengthen their backfield after Tony Pollard left in free agency on a three-year, $21.75 million deal with the Tennessee Titans.

Elliott could immediately step in as the starter while bridging the gap for the team’s next future at the position. The three-time Pro Bowler would likely need to take a pay cut to return to Dallas, which would likely be a short-term contract given his age and decreased production.

Elliott remains a strong factor as a goal-line option while being a strong presence with his pass-blocking ability. He still has plenty in the tack to be a considerable offensive weapon with the Cowboys.

Time will tell what lies ahead, but there’s certainly a realistic chance that Elliott will return to the team that drafted him.
