Patriots Football Daily: Ezekiel Elliott Returning to Dallas



New England Patriots RB Ezekiel Elliott

Ezekiel Elliott came to the New England Patriots on a one-year deal in 2023 after spending the first seven seasons of his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys. The running back concluded that Dorothy was right, there’s no place like home. Elliott, a free agent, is returning to Dallas.

The deal was first reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

This was the write-up on Elliott’s free agency outlook on Patriots Football Now:

“There were not many bright spots on the New England Patriots offense last season. Running back Ezekiel Elliott was one of them though. He played hard, which is not something everybody appeared to be doing. Elliott rushed for 642 yards. He caught 51 passes for 313 yards. Elliott scored five touchdowns on the year. Elliott may opt to parlay his solid season into joining a contender (perhaps even a return to Dallas) but New England could certainly do worse than bringing back Elliott to join Rhamondre Stevenson in the backfield.”

Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 8,262 yards, amassed 2,336 receiving yards, and scored 80 touchdowns during his first stint with the Cowboys.
